IT management solutions developer CA Technologies has announced CA ARCserve D2D for Linux. The solution is designed to provide data protection and disaster recovery for businesses running virtual and physical servers on the Linux platform.
An image-based solution, CA ARCserve D2D for Linux helps SMBs protect the integrity and availability of critical systems, applications, and data. It complements CA ARCserve D2D for Microsoft Windows.
CA ARCserve data compression reduces backup-related storage requirements and costs. Unattended bare-metal recovery enables systems to be restored to similar or dissimilar physical or virtual servers.
“IT has to aggressively reduce the amount of time and effort they spend protecting mission-critical systems, including those powered by Linux,” says Steve Fairbanks, CA Technologies’ vice president of product delivery, data management. “CA ARCserve empowers our customers to fulfill their most pressing recovery objectives with a single, cross-platform solution and licensing options tailored to achieve maximum return on investment.”
Users access CA ARC serve D2D for Linux via an easy-to-use Web 2.0 console for automated agent installation as well as centralized management, configuration, and reporting of all protected Linux servers.
CA ARC serve D2D for Linux can be licensed individually on a per-server (or virtual machine) basis. It also is included in CA ARC serve managed capacity (per-Terabyte) and virtual server per-socket offerings.
CA ARC serve D2D for Linux supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x and 6.x as well as Centos 5.x and 6.x. CA ARC serve backup, replication, and high availability solutions also support Linux.
