Arcserve Embarks on a New Strategic Direction to Accelerate its Growth in Australia

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Nov. 2nd, 2016 — / — Arcserve, LLC, the market’s first provider of simple, unified data protection for cloud, virtual and physical environments, announced today that following a detailed evaluation of its plans for the Australia market that it has appointed ACA Pacific as its new distributor in Australia. Effective immediately, ACA Pacific will sell the entire portfolio of Arcserve solutions, including the Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) and the new Arcserve UDP 8000 Appliance, to channel partners in Australia.

ACA Pacific is a leader in the value-added distribution of specialist IT hardware and software solutions. With over 28 years of experience, ACA Pacific has earned itself a reputation within the channel for having a strong understanding of its customer’s needs and a high level of sales and technical expertise.

Caddy Tan, regional director at Arcserve APAC said, “We have been reviewing our plans on how to maximize the full potential of this key regional market and decided a fresh approach was required in order-to take our business to the next level. A key component of this was to change our distribution set up to bolster our partner network and we quickly identified ACA Pacific as being the ideal distribution partner for us moving forward. The company’s forte in building markets for ‘Best-of-Breed’ technology to meet changing business dynamics matches Arcserve’s channel commitment perfectly. We look forward to a strong partnership with ACA Pacific to support the channel community in Australia.”

Mark Gill, ACA Pacific’s Managing Director added, “At ACA Pacific we are always seeking out the best technologies out there to match our customers’ needs and we see Arcserve as fitting that bill perfectly within the data protection space. With a portfolio that supports physical, virtual and cloud environments, we are confident of helping Arcserve to accelerate its growth in Australia and make it a win-win situation for both parties.”

Since the spinout from CA Technologies, Arcserve has enjoyed exceptional growth as an independent company. It first introduced Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) in 2014 as the only software to combine replication, high availability and true global deduplication technologies in a single, unified solution. Shortly thereafter, Arcserve built out its portfolio with fully integrated appliance and cloud offerings to become the first all-in-one data protection solution for cloud, virtual and physical environments.

Recently, it announced the new release of Arcserve UDP to deliver continuous availability, instant recovery, enterprise storage array snapshot integration and significantly enhanced protection for Linux™ environments. Its highly decorated platform transforms data protection with a single solution that accelerates partner revenue opportunities and expands market reach.

Last month, Arcserve released 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 overstretched IT teams that want a “set and forget,” yet enterprise-grade data protection solution.

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. The new Arcserve UDP Appliance series will be widely available in early November this year.
