CA Extends Cloud Connectivity to ARCserve Backup Software

New backup and recovery software from CA Technologies is designed to support a number of cloud services.

The company's ARCserve r16, released last week, provides a common cloud connection for all forms of data protection, including core file backup, disk imaging, replication and high availability.

It works with such public cloud services as Amazon Web Services Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Microsoft's Windows Azure, as well as cloud services based on software provided by Eucalyptus. It also works with remote monitoring and management platforms from the likes of N-able and LabTech.

The new release also lets customers use Amazon's EC2 as their disaster recovery infrastructure, CA said. The software is designed to let customers back up data both locally as well as in the cloud.

"With the release of CA ARCserve r16, we are delivering the capabilities and intelligence necessary to protect large and dynamic virtualized private and public cloud environments," said Michael Crest, general manager for the data management customer solutions unit at CA, in a blog post.

The entire ARCserve suite is priced between $10,982 and 27,600, depending on capacity, for a perpetual license. For those opting for monthly subscription, rates range from $566 to $976.
