Data protection solution provider, Arcserve, recently announced the newest version of Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), a solution for comprehensive protection of every type of workload. The platform is powered by heterogeneous, image-based technology, therefore this release was designed to eliminate the multiple points of failure that are introduced into IT environments via a piecemeal approach to backup and disaster recovery, including those with hyperconverged and SaaS-based applications.
An independent global study of 759 IT professionals commissioned by Arcserve showed that 74% are not confident in their ability to recover critical data when necessary. Additionally, most respondents deploy multiple kinds of workloads that require a range of levels of availability. Developing a comprehensive strategy to protect systems and applications often results in a complex IT ecosystem that is expensive and difficult to manage.
In a press statement, research director at IDC, Phil Goodwin said, “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. 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 release of the new Arcserve UDP extends backup and disaster recovery technologies to protect every type of workload, including Microsoft Office 365 and Nutanix AHV, while also offering a ‘done-for-you’ approach in order to achieve business continuity and disaster recovery by reducing Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) to minutes and seconds.
