Overview:

Arcserve Backup is a comprehensive storage management solution for distributed and multiplatform environments that can backup and restore data from every machine on your network, including those running Windows, UNIX, and Linux. It offers complete control and visibility from one management console, whether supporting small-scale or large-scale enterprise environments across different platforms and organizations.

Arcserve Backup’s highly-scalable architecture, central database and distributed member servers enables you to manage very large environments with ease, and:

  • Safeguard your Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX and FreeBSD systems in cloud, virtual and physical environments
  • Protect Oracle Database, SAP R/3, SAP HANA, Informix, Sybase, Lotus/Domino, Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and Exchange
  • Store backups securely on nearly any tape device on the market, with certified compatibility for over 60+ vendors
  • Scale up, down and out to the cloud on-demand, turning capabilities on and off without forklift upgrades
  • Save time with a centralized, intuitive user interface, catalogs and reporting

Bring efficiencies and savings to your tape backups

Magnetic tape storage has been a feature of the data center since the very earliest days of computing. Reel-to-reel tapes have evolved into high-capacity tape cartridges, boasting exceptional durability that continues to earn them a place in over half of today’s hybrid data centers.

Yet while tape tends to be inexpensive and reliable, the proliferation of data – over time – can drive up the total cost of ownership (TCO), transforming it from a minor expense to a pricey backup target.

Arcserve does tape backup differently with unique technologies that improve the economies of data protection by enabling longer retention periods, reducing storage, and integrating powerful deduplication into your existing backup environment.

Store critical data on nearly any tape device, from a single tape drive to huge tape libraries. Manage more data in more locations. Reduce time spent managing backups, no matter how simple or complex your infrastructure.

As a foundational solution of Arcserve’s data protection portfolio, Arcserve Backup’s modular architecture enables you to start small and grow as you need to, adding modules to provide additional levels of protection without having to learn a new product or buy another solution.

Proven tape backup software for over two decades

Arcserve Backup has been a staple in global data centers for over 28 years. Loaded with highly powerful capabilities, it gives businesses highly reliable data protection at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions.

  • Stop wasting time sifting through data with centralized management and storage resource manager (SRM) reporting. Monitor the status of all backup activities, find the nodes that are taking the longest, locate backed-up data, and track volume, disk, and memory usage on every production server
  • Quickly restore individual application objects from Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft SharePoint
  • Incorporate sophisticated functionality into your VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer platforms. Simplify system management with a view of your entire environment and mitigate the risk of data loss on virtualized servers
  • Deliver faster, more efficient backups and restores with UNIX and Linux data movers for SAN-based backups
  • Increase reliability with smart restore capabilities. Redirect restore jobs to other media containing the same data without any manual intervention
  • Meet application-specific requirements with backup to disk, backup to tape, disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T), disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C), virtual tape library (VTL), hardware snapshot support, multiplexing and multi-streaming

Features and Benefits:

Comprehensive Backup

  • Broad Platform Support – protect Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX and FreeBSD with one solution
  • Any Application – safeguard Oracle Database, SAP R/3, SAP HANA, Informix, Sybase, Lotus/Domino, Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and Exchange
  • Integrated Data Deduplication – protect more data and save storage capacity, enabling longer retention periods on disk storage
  • Flexible Backup Options – disk-to-disk (D2D), disk-to-tape (D2T), disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T), disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C) backup
  • Multiplexing and Multistreaming – accelerate and scale performance in any environment
  • Catalogs and Central Database – find backups and files quickly without recalling tapes or pulling data from the cloud
  • NDMP – back up NAS and other NDMP-compatible systems while optimizing network flow

Streamlined Management and Architecture

  • Intuitive Central Management Console – save time with a unified user interface to manage local and remote servers and locations
  • Infrastructure Visualization – simplify system management with an easy-to-read network diagram view of your entire environment
  • Dashboard with SRM Reporting – proactively avoid downtime with graphical insight into your backup environment to monitor the status of all backup activities
  • Modular Architecture – scale the protection to thousands of systems with a multi-tier modular architecture

Quick Recovery

  • Bare-Metal Recovery – restore entire Windows systems after disaster on the same or dissimilar hardware

How It Works:

Arcserve Backup is a comprehensive storage management solution for distributed and multiplatform environments that can backup and restore data from every machine on your network, including those running Windows, UNIX, and Linux. It offers complete control and visibility from one management console, whether supporting small-scale or large-scale enterprise environments across different platforms and organizations.

Once installed, you’re able to create, manage and monitor Arcserve Backup jobs from one central location. Jobs are submitted on the primary server and can be run either locally on the primary server itself, or remotely on any of the associated member servers. Perform job operations such as backup, restore, merge, scan, migrate, copy, compare, and so on for all servers from the primary server. Monitor the job status of from the central job queue.

Central database management is easy with all jobs, sessions and media information stored in the centralized database. In addition, a central catalog file is created with descriptive information about each session and allows you to select the specific files and directories to be restored without having to query the database itself. When data needs to be restored, Arcserve Backup can quickly browse the content of each session in the catalog file from a single central location to locate the information.

With central reporting, you can launch and create scheduled reports for all servers in a domain from the primary server. Schedule, preview, print or email reports for all domain servers from the primary server.
