Second-generation appliances bring enterprise-grade and cost-effective, “set-and-forget” solution portfolio to the data protection market

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 5, 2016 — / — Arcserve, LLC, the first provider of simple, unified data protection for cloud, virtual and physical environments, today announced the release of its second-generation Unified Data Protection (UDP) Appliance series, the most cost-effective and easily-deployable purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) in the data protection industry. Fully-integrated with the company’s award-winning Arcserve UDP software, the new appliance series simplifies disaster recovery for small or over-stretched IT teams that want a “set and forget,” yet enterprise-grade data protection solution.

“Arcserve is a name that first started innovating around data protection more than two decades ago,” said Jason Buffington, principal analyst at ESG. “The new Arcserve UDP Appliance continues that heritage as the IT market continues to evolve in its needs for physical, virtual, and cloud-protection strategies, while looking for more agile, reliable and rapid recovery from the solutions it relies on.”

“This release illustrates the new Arcserve; who we are as an organization and what we bring to our partners and customers,” said Mike Crest, CEO of Arcserve. “Our focus has been, and continues to be, squarely on providing enterprise-grade data protection without the complexity that’s often associated with enterprise solutions. The new appliance series adds muscle to optimize power and performance, but does it without sacrificing the unparalleled ease of use and deployment that organizations rely on from Arcserve.”

The second-generation appliances will mitigate data growth challenges and optimize performance with:

  • Highly-expandable storage capacity to protect up to 240 TBs of raw source data
  • Enhanced hardware features for enterprise-grade resiliency
  • Support for public cloud services and the Arcserve® Cloud for a complete, offsite backup and disaster recovery solution and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) option
  • Unparalleled data deduplication efficiency to reduce redundant storage
  • Simple, wizard-driven setup for ease of use, often deployable in 15 minutes or less
  • Robust capabilities including on-appliance virtual standby, instant failover and bare metal recovery (BMR), high availability and multi-site WAN-optimized replication

This release augments the company’s wildly successful first-generation appliance offering, which underscored a 4,900 percent growth in sales over the past year. Combined, Arcserve now offers 16 appliance models that make it an ideal platform for organizations looking for an easily-deployable, yet extremely powerful all-in-one data protection solution.

For partners and managed service providers looking to expand their data protection portfolio, the new series offers a breadth of storage capacity to meet the needs of any size organization. Arcserve UDP Appliances are fully interoperable with existing Arcserve UDP software deployments without the need for additional licenses, and are an all-in-one system for branch or decentralized offices or as the backup, deduplication, disaster recovery and cloud gateway appliance for primary locations.

“Since we’ve started working with Arcserve, we’ve noticed a marked increase in sales and customer satisfaction,” said Todd Crystal, president at Spencomp Solutions. “The larger appliances will uniquely enable us to meet customer demand in the face of a rapidly changing market that’s looking for high availability capabilities combined with cloud gateway systems.”

The new Arcserve UDP Appliance series will be widely available in early November of this year, with field expansion capabilities, such as the ability to expand storage in-place without changing systems, broadly available in 2017.
