Arcserve, LLC, has announced the latest version of Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), the company’s solution for comprehensive protection of every type of workload. Powered by heterogeneous, image-based technology, the company says that this release was specifically designed to remove the multiple points of failure typically introduced into IT environments through a piecemeal, ‘do-it-yourself’ approach to data backup and disaster recovery, including those with hyperconverged and SaaS-based applications.
According to an independent global study of 759 IT decision-makers commissioned by Arcserve, 74 percent are not fully confident in their ability to recover critical data when needed, and most deploy numerous types of workloads that require varying levels of availability. Creating a cohesive strategy to protect the wide scope of their systems and applications often results in a highly complex IT ecosystem that is difficult and costly to manage.
“As the deployment of new systems and applications accelerates, it’s become necessary to have a data protection solution that can provide visibility into and help IT teams protect every type of workload,” said Phil Goodwin, research director, IDC. “Arcserve UDP is designed to bring technologies together in a way that simplifies the infrastructure running a combination of on-premises, virtual and SaaS-based applications and systems. Without a comprehensive solution spanning these different application environments, organizations may be susceptible to downtime and data loss.”
The new release of Arcserve UDP extends industry-proven backup and DR technologies to protect every type of workload, including Nutanix AHV and Microsoft Office 365, while offering a ‘done-for-you’ method to achieve seamless business continuity and disaster recovery by cutting recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) to minutes and seconds.
“Since first launching Arcserve UDP five years ago, we’ve continued to push the envelope to meet the ever-changing demands of digital businesses,” said Oussama El-Hilali, CTO at Arcserve. “This release signals a new frontier in backup and disaster recovery innovation, and allows our partners and customers to protect their data through a single user interface to any target, whether that’s on-premises or in the cloud. Reducing the complexity of managing tiered systems and data has always been our main objective, and we’re continuing that legacy with this new iteration of Arcserve UDP.”
