By CIOReview | Tuesday, February 9, 2016

MINNEAPOLIS, MN: Arcserve recently unveiled its new Unified Data Protection (UDP) in the market working from inside a multi-platform solution set to serve non-stop accessibility and non-equivalent simplicity. The latest release is available not only across the UDP portfolio, but also on appliances and the cloud. Loaded with developments in Linux environments data security, instant VM recovery and instant Bare Metal recovery, the update also consolidates installation and improvements for third party integration.

“As organizations move away from a modest tolerance for downtime to demanding an ‘always on’ environment, the idea of recovery gives way to availability,” said Mike Crest, CEO, Arcserve.

Bordering on the universal source-side deduplication, WAN-optimized replication and automated disaster recovery testing, Arcserve UDP yields hassle free single solution across cloud, virtual and physical environments. Data protection explored with this release through:

Wizard-Driven Setup: Upcoming wizards and a Unified Product Installer are easy to download and deploy.

Management Authority: With role-based administration it boosts establishment, supervision and third-party integration, reboot-less agent establishment and a new Command Line Interface (CLI).

Faster, More Flexible Recovery Options: The latest release also delivers high performance, low-impact snapshots of virtual and physical production servers. Instant VM recovery from agent-based and agentless backups of vSphere and Hyper-V and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) and virtual-to-physical (V2P) restores, supplies further alternatives for upgrading RTOs and RPOs. Instant Bare Metal Restore (BMR) validates local and remote recovery of virtual and physical systems, from inside the UDP console.

Significantly Enhanced Linux Support: Linux systems are taking the advantage of UDP’s advanced Windows protection capabilities like global deduplication, WAN-optimized replication, archive to tape and many more. Increased file/folder level recovery of Linux VMs is backed up via agentless, host-based backups on vSphere and Hyper-V hosts. It gives total control over data protection objectives with unlimited incremental backups, bare metal restore of Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) systems, also backup, restore and recovery point server (RPS) ability from data stores.

Data Protection Advancements for Windows Platforms: It gives full data security to the most recent Windows environments, including Windows 10. The Exchange granular recovery (Including Exchange 2016) gives total recovery to non-email data without restoring the whole mailbox.
Unified Tape Management: The new Unified Tape Management embedded the UDP console directly permits controlling of the scheduling, monitoring and migration of recovery points to tape.

“Arcserve’s Unified Data Protection with its latest release provide users a simple and unified solution to protect any form of data through new capabilities such as hardware snapshots, instant VM recovery and instant Bare Metal Restore, Linux-focused support, and enhanced operational usability,” said Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst, Data Protection, Enterprise Strategy Group.
