CA ARCserve High Availability complements whatever backup solution you use today to provide a complete strategy for managing your backup, recovery and 24 X 7 availability.
Multiple replication levels
It offers continuous, scheduled and ad-hoc replication to create a balance between resource utilization and the required level of protection.
Scenario group management
It provides the ability to group together scenarios for multiple machines to protect distributed platforms such as SharePoint, Web applications and document repositories. It allows server groups to failover together across the wide area network.
Linux and UNIX high availability
It offers LAN and WAN data replication, automated and push-button failover and push-button failback, with hard-links support to avoid unnecessary data replication.
Application-aware LAN and WAN optimized replication
After the initial synchronization, only block-level changes to files and data are replicated. Application-aware means no custom scripting required for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, IIS, and Dynamics CRM as well as for Oracle and Blackberry Enterprise Server. It works on Windows, Linux and UNIX systems running on physical and virtual servers.
Automated and push-button failover
It provides real-time server and application monitoring with automated and push-button failover - keeping employee and IT productivity high.
Data rewind for Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
Allows quick and easy data rewind to known good points-in-time, after data loss or damage.
Unified, centralized management console
Makes CA ARCserve High Availability easy to deploy and manage. It includes replication and failover for the management service itself.
Helps estimate LAN and WAN bandwidth needs without disrupting the production environment to minimize network costs.
Physical and virtual server support
Protects virtualized server environments (VMware, Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer) and allows use of virtualization to help reduce DR costs. It is the perfect tool for Physical to Virtual Server Migration too.
