Arcserve releases Business Continuity Cloud to safeguard complex IT infrastructures amid growing data protection concerns



Data protection company Arcserve unveiled Tuesday Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud, its fully-integrated, cloud-born solution to prevent the impacts of unplanned downtime by immediately restoring access to critical data, systems and applications across complex, multi-generational IT infrastructures ranging from non-x86 and x86, to software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

With this solution, Arcserve solves the challenges of protecting modern IT caused by the time, skill, expense and multiple tools needed to protect new workloads.

Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud eliminates the need for other data protection tools and management consoles with fully-integrated capabilities to protect and restore applications and systems in any location, on-premises and in public and private clouds.

It provides a consumer-grade user experience through capabilities spanning the data protection lifecycle are accessible through a customizable, cloud-based web console. Most tasks are implemented in three clicks or less. It also eliminates data loss and extended downtime by supporting near-zero RTOs and RPOs with high availability, minutes with virtual standby and instant VM, hours with bare metal restore, and granular recovery and quick discovery for compliance.

The cloud offering also shifts the economic profile by delivering fully-integrated technologies that reduce time and money spent on IT management by up to 50 percent. It also simplifies protecting modern IT infrastructures by safeguarding modern infrastructures, including those with x86, non-x86, SaaS and IaaS. Multi-cloud and cross-cloud data protection support organizations planning to, or are currently in the process of implementing a cloud platform for backup or disaster recovery.

Currently available, Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud fully integrates data protection processes under one cloud-based console for multi-generational IT infrastructures, such as those running a mix of non-x86, x86, and public and private clouds. In a departure from alternative data protection providers that have simply taken on-premises products and migrated them to the cloud, Arcserve uniquely enables economies of scale with the only solution architected for cloud backup, disaster recovery, high availability and email archiving.

New data being released by Arcserve found that nearly half of global IT decision-makers have less than one hour to recover business-critical data before it starts impacting revenue, despite only 26 percent being extremely confident in their ability to do so; cites resource constraints, backup acquisition and support costs, and multiple backup tools as leading challenges of safeguarding business-critical data.

“Based on our observations and underscored by this research, it’s evident that organizations cannot effectively protect modern IT infrastructures with today’s incomplete tools that create more complexity, drive up the total cost of ownership, and ultimately increase the risk of data loss and downtime through gaps in protection,” said Oussama El-Hilali, Vice President of Products at Arcserve. “Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud is the only solution capable of addressing these challenges by bringing all data protection processes together in one place. Whether migrating workloads to the cloud, needing advanced VM protection or requiring support for sub-minute RTOs and RPOs – it’s all under one hood.”

“Arcserve has accomplished something very unique in this market by closing a substantial gap for businesses requiring more robust data protection capabilities without the complexity of juggling multiple backup tools for new or disparate workloads,” said Edwin Yuen, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Many solutions today consist of products bolted together with a UI upgrade, yet Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud stands out with a level of integration beyond most other vendors, creating a truly seamless solution that’s extremely intuitive yet incredibly powerful.”
