CA ARCserve High Availability provides a rich set of features that address system, application and data availability, and protection needs, to meet demanding SLAs and BC/DR strategies. Whether you protect a single server or thousands of servers, you get system scalability that grows with your business. CA ARCserve High Availability is part of the CA ARCserve Family of Products that together goes beyond backup to deliver total protection, recovery and availability of your systems, applications and data.
Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) replication and failover
They provide system, application and data protection for Windows, Linux and UNIX environments on physical and virtual servers. You can deploy your failover environment on-premise, off-premise and in the cloud. LAN and WAN replication and failover simplify copying and migrating backup data to an off-site location for disaster recovery; ease and speed physical-to-virtual (P2V) server migration; and make consolidating remote office data for secure, centralized backup and off-site protection quick and easy.
It provides server and application monitoring, automatic and push-button failover and push-button failback to speed recovery after unplanned outages and eliminate business disruptions during planned maintenance.
CA ARCserve Assured Recovery
It enables automated, non-disruptive, Windows-based replica testing at the application level to ensure system preparedness while maintaining real-time replication and continuous data protection.
Unified management console
It provides a single web-based console for management, monitoring and reporting of all levels of protection for all supported Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms. In this way, you can ease deployment and management to improve IT productivity and let you focus on other strategic initiatives to help grow your business. CA ARCserve High Availability also offers control service replication and failover for its own management system high availability.
It provides continuous data protection (CDP) with fast recovery of lost or damaged data and databases, complementing periodic backups and snapshots.
It provides an alternative to LAN and WAN synchronization to transfer large Windows-based data sets and databases more easily. With this feature, you can speed deployment and reduce the amount of time for which you are unprotected. Using offline synchronization, you can transport a data copy on physical media and synchronize even while replication is underway, which is especially useful for cloud deployment.
Multiple replication options
It offer continuous, scheduled/periodic and ad-hoc Windows server replication, providing the flexibility that you require. With this feature, you can balance your network resource utilization and your required level of protection.
Application-aware replication and failover
It means auto-configuration for fast and easy deployment as well as transactional integrity for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Oracle and BlackBerry - all from a single management console. You can protect other Windows applications by using the Custom Application Protection wizard or by a simple script. In addition, you can protect Linux and UNIX applications via a simple script.
It enables the use of multiple data streams to increase network replication throughput over high-latency WANs.
Full system replication and failover
It replicates the operating system, system state, application and data through physical-to-virtual (P2V) and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) replication to an offline local or remote Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer virtual server. This feature automatically stands-up the replica server and fails over when needed. It also makes P2V migration quick and easy.
It provides 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption across the network without the need for a virtual private network (VPN) or IPSec tunnel, thereby reducing cost and complexity.
Windows server failover cluster supportProduct Highlights
It complements a Windows failover cluster with replication to any local or remote site, regardless of distance, for disaster recovery. It also eliminates your storage as a single point of failure. Integration with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager makes management faster and easier.
