CA Technologies and ExaGrid Systems today announced that they’ve teamed up to deliver a customized backup solution, which pairs CA ARCserve® D2D image-based backup and recovery software and ExaGrid disk storage and deduplication appliance hardware.
The new solution will help mid-market and small enterprise organizations slash storage requirements and related costs while shortening backup windows, speeding recovery, and delivering more reliable offsite disaster recovery than slower tape devices.
The combination of CA ARCserve D2D and ExaGrid will help IT organizations back up complex heterogeneous environments that combine virtual and physical environments in a cost-effective manner.
It delivers significantly fast backup and recovery and post-process data deduplication to meet resource constraints without affecting backup performance.
“Customers’ data protection requirements are evolving very quickly, and they want to make sure they get the right mix of functionality – but also efficiency, speed and simplicity – at the right ownership costs,” said Chris Ross, Vice president, Worldwide Sales, Data Management, CA Technologies.
“By working with ExaGrid, CA Technologies is enabling its customers to fulfill their requirements,” he added.
“With data growing exponentially across both physical and virtual servers while IT budgets remain tight, we are seeing great demand for a simplified solution like this that delivers reliable, resource-efficient backup and recovery in mixed infrastructure environments,” said Marc Crespi, vice president, Product Management, ExaGrid.
“We look forward to showing customers the power of a combined ExaGrid and CA ARCserve D2D solution, and how they can achieve faster recovery of their business systems and the best scalability in the industry as their needs grow,” he added.
The CA ARCserve D2D software and ExaGrid disk storage appliances are now available through authorized resellers and service providers.
