CA ARCserve® D2D Product Features
CA ARCserve D2D supports your Windows-based environments, and delivers a host of core capabilities, including the following:
Windows Server 2012 Support — Protect the latest Microsoft operating system environments. Backup and restore NTFS deduplicated and ReFS volumes. Protect Hyper-V 3.0 virtual servers and Windows Server 2012 Storage Spaces. What's New in r16.5?
Block Level Infinite Incremental Backup — Like deduplication, this patent-pending technology uses less storage space, performs backups faster and puts less of a load on your Production servers. Disk-to-disk backups are based on block-level I2 technology from CA Technologies. This technology has been designed to intelligently manage the backup of only blocks of data that have changed since the last backup and present a consolidated point-in-time view of the protected volume for multiple recovery types, reducing your recovery time.
Single-Snapshot Backup with Five Restore Types — Single-pass backup enables you to rapidly restore files, volumes, databases, Microsoft Exchange emails or the entire system to any server in both physical and virtual environments. One snapshot helps to ensure recovery of your data in the most efficient manner.
Bare-Metal Restore to Dissimilar Hardware — Bare-metal restore offers a lightning-fast way to recover a crashed server to the same or dissimilar hardware. It simply paints the picture of the original drive back onto the new drive and restarts the system. This reduces a process that can potentially take as long as 36 hours to just minutes, minimizing risk and your losses from downtime.
Application-Consistent Snapshot Backups — For fast application recovery, this ensures that the application is being properly quiesced and backed up from a consistent state to help reduce downtime and minimize losses.
Point-In-Time Backup View — This provides a full point-in-time view of the disk for rapid recovery of files, folders, volumes, Exchange emails and databases.
Catalog-less backup — Shorten backup time by not building a catalog during backup. For faster recovery, users can run ad-hoc catalog creation jobs at any time.
Encryption — Privacy is critically important today. Protect your data from prying eyes by encrypting your backups and rest easy that your data is safe, no matter where it is stored.
Exchange 2013 support — Provides database-level backup and recovery for Microsoft Exchange 2013.
Granular Mailbox Recovery — Sometimes, you only need to recover a single email or an attachment to an email, rather than needing to take the time or resources to recover an entire Exchange server. CA ARCserve D2D offers granular recovery for Exchange 2010 that enables you to recover just the mailbox or email that you need and get back to work quickly.
Protection for Virtual Servers — A single user interface to help protect virtual servers as well as physical servers saves you training time and simplifies operations. Block-level I2 technology helps to reduce backup time, storage space, network usage, workload on the Production servers and recovery time for virtualized servers.
Host-Based VM Backup — Removes the performance impact of data protection from your virtualized data center while ensuring the availability of business-critical applications by delivering fast recovery from any type of failure. Simple to deploy and manage, CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup helps to reduce operational costs and complexity.
Virtual Standby — Delivers quick recovery for your servers, applications and data. Critical physical or virtual systems can be brought back online quickly by utilizing the power and flexibility of virtualization, increasing the availability of IT services and maintaining revenue and productivity. You can perform migration from physical servers to on-premise virtualized servers with minimal risk and impact to your business operations.
Remote Virtual Standby — CA ARCserve® Central Virtual Standby now supports “remote deployment” across a Wide Area Network through integration with CA ARCserve® Replication. Customers and Partners like MSPs can now replicate CA ARCserve D2D recovery points to a remote site and then automatically convert the recovery points to VM format and quickly stand them up after a production server failure for fast system recovery.
Integrated Access to Cloud Storage — Easily enables you to take advantage of cloud services for remote, off-site protection, archiving or additional storage capacity. It enables the flexibility of cloud services for your data protection and helps you to take advantage of operational budget instead of capital budget for your storage needs.
Central Protection Manager — Reduces workload on IT personnel in environments where there are multiple servers and workstations to protect. Simplified, centralized management and recovery reduces operational costs, improves the consistency of protection and frees up IT time for strategic projects.
Central Reporting — Minimizes risk by enabling you to quickly understand what is occurring across your backup environment, regardless of the size of your environment. Reports inform you and your management that the data is protected and ready for recovery if an unplanned outage occurs—helping to satisfy management and auditors, and avoid costly data loss.
Desktop/Laptop Protection — Laptop theft, accidents and errors due to clumsy typing can jeopardize key business data residing on laptop and desktop workstations today. Avoid the cost of downtime with the same protection that you use with your servers—infinite, incremental snapshot backups and bare-metal restore for your desktops and laptops.
Dynamic Documentation with the Web 2.0 Interface — Fast and easy access to the latest product documentation that is pushed to you via the CA ARCserve D2D user interface helps to reduce management time.
Backup Throttling — Enables you to customize your backup performance processes to balance system usage. This is important if you have other mission-critical applications and services running that need most of the system resources. It helps you to ensure the necessary resources to enable these applications to adequately perform their functions.
Windows Explorer Shell Integration — Privacy This familiar interface speeds the location of data for rapid recovery of files, folders, volumes, individual Exchange emails and databases. Recover your data and get back to business in the shortest time possible.
Auto Update — Keeping your CA ARCserve D2D software up to date is important to ensuring the best performance. Auto Update reduces your workload by notifying you of new updates and making it easy to install them, freeing up your time.
High-Frequency Backups — New I2 technology™ provides the ability to perform backups every 15 minutes for greater levels of protection, improved recovery point objectives and reduced risk.
End-User Search and Restore — You can find and recover file-level and folder-level items from user data sets without administrator intervention. This speeds recovery time and reduces the workload of IT personnel.
Integration with CA ARCserve® Backup — You can reduce management time and increase flexibility by migrating CA ARCserve D2D backups into the CA ARCserve Backup recovery catalog for one central location to recover your data. Movement of backups to disk, tape or cloud to support your disaster recovery initiatives reduce risk, increase flexibility and help to control costs.
Use with CA ARCserve Replication and CA ARCserve High Availability — You can replicate complete CA ARCserve D2D backups to a remote location for an additional level of protection or rapid recovery in the event of a data center outage.
Remote Office/Branch Office Protection — You can protect your remote offices with local backup and recovery by using CA ARCserve D2D and then replicate the backup files to a central location by using CA ARCserve Replication. You can then back up these files to tape by using CA ARCserve Backup for long-term, off-site archiving.
UEFi support — Gain more flexibility when restoring data with uEFI-BIOS interchange. Go from uEFI to BIOS and vice-versa. This is especially useful when performing Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) as you don't need to have the same type of hardware which may mean faster and less expensive recovery.
