SaaS solution combines local backup speed With cloud storage
TechTrade | 03 Apr 2012 :
Ingram Micro (UK) has announced it will be making CA's ARCserve D2D On Demand, a hybrid software-as-a-service (SaaS) data protection and disaster recovery solution, available in the UK and Ireland.
CA ARCserve D2D On Demand enables SMBs to meet demanding backup windows while protecting the integrity and availability of critical systems, applications and information. Unlike solutions that only provide local protection or only back up directly to the cloud, D2D On Demand combines on-premise resources for fast backup and bare-metal recovery capabilities with Windows Azure cloud storage.
"We are pleased that CA have chosen to partner with Ingram Micro in this exciting launch," said Jon Bunyard, value business director at Ingram Micro. "Ingram Micro is investing in the success of our channel partners and we are finding compelling ways to help our VAR community engage and enable their customers through a supported product and service offering."
CA ARCserve D2D On Demand is offered through monthly or annual subscription licensing that includes 25GB of Windows Azure cloud storage per protected machine. Additional cloud storage is available in tiered capacity bands. Customers can pool their purchased cloud storage resources and share them among protected machines. CA ARCserve D2D On Demand is also an ideal solution for MSPs seeking to include turnkey data protection offerings in their cloud services portfolios.
"Now that SMBs are experiencing the same intensive proliferation of high-value data as their enterprise counterparts, they are in desperate need of a backup solution that is fast, scalable, easy to implement, richly functional and priced right," said Steve Fairbanks, vice president, data management, CA Technologies. "CA ARCserve D2D On Demand uniquely delivers on these key criteria by leveraging the inherent strengths of both on-premise and cloud models-enabling SMB customers to quickly and easily achieve their data protection objectives."
