CA ARCserve Backup r16
CA’s ARCserve Backup r16 aims to amalgamate disk, tape and cloud backup into a single product. Dave Mitchell puts it through its paces in the lab to see if it has every data protection angle covered.
We installed the primary server components on a Broadberry dual X5560 Xeon server running Windows Server 2008 R2. Existing users of ARCserve will be pleased to know the Manager Console design hasn't changed so you get a backup wizard on first contact and a navigation bar pops up when requested to provide easy access to the various functions.
CA's focus on cloud storage introduces D2D2C (disk-to-disk-to-cloud) backup with support for services such as Amazon Web Services and Eucalyptus. It's configured from the Manager console where you create a cloud connection to your chosen provider and associate it with virtual storage devices which are links to cloud folders.
From the ARCserve Device Manager, you can browse, erase and format cloud folders. However, they cannot be used for standard backup copy operations. At present, ARCserve allows them to be used as a target for data migration as part of a disk staging job hence the D2D2C concept.
