Continental Express has been using CA ARCserve Backup for over 3 years to protect both our physical and virtual servers. ARCserve has helped us reduce recovery times to less than 5 minutes and has also been critical in our management of data growth. If the increase in size and complexity of data isn't managed then it can lead to compliance issues and data loss, but having a backup system like ARCserve is like having reliable insurance for the critical data of the organization.

As a System Administrator for a small school district, I have been using CA ARCserve backup now for 6+ years to backup and restore very important data. CA ARCserve is by far the best backup and restore solution I have used. CA ARCserve Backup is extremely easy to setup and use; furthermore, when help is needed, the technical support provided by CA is excellent. Over the years I’ve needed to restore data such as Exchange or SQL, and the process has never failed. CA ARCserve just works and I would recommend it to anybody in need of an excellent backup and restore system.

With over 100 virtual servers and 15 physical servers to protect, CA ARCserve Backup is able to easily complete the backups within our backup window, including full database backups every day. The product is so reliable that we really ‘set it and forget it’ while daily reports with graphical displays remind us that ARCserve is protecting our data.

Our IT team is responsible for protecting over 20 physical and virtual servers here at SFI. With applications that are critical to everyday operations such as Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server, we need to keep our backups fast and recovery times as efficient as possible. We also require a scalable solution that can recover files at the individual level or complete full database restores quickly and efficiently. We worked with CDW, our partner of choice, to help find the best solution for us. With CA ARCserve Backup, we have met our backup goals and continued to have success in every recovery incidence we’ve been faced with.
— Clyde Huff, Network Administrator, Steel Fabricating Institute
My IT department supports over 15,000 employees so we are always looking for IT solutions that are faster, more reliable, and cost-effective. We realized how important a disaster recovery strategy was to achieving the organization’s overall goals after we experienced downtime and employees lost access to business-critical applications, such as Microsoft Exchange. We saw a significant impact on revenues and productivity levels that day.
After evaluating several Disaster Recovery solutions, we chose to implement the CA ARCserve® Replication and CA ARCserve® High Availability Solution. Since implementation, we have been able to reduce our RPO’s & RTO’s and therefore achieve customer SLA’s. I follow best practices and test my high availability (HA) solution regularly to ensure it is running properly- and with the CA ARCserve solution, I can do all of this during business hours without disruption.
My team can’t remember what it’s like to operate without the peace of mind that we have a reliable disaster recovery solution in place in case of an emergency. For us, HA is like oxygen, we need it to operate on a daily basis.

We were recently tasked with providing a backup solution for a client which required backing up large amounts of data. The client required that we backup several back end file servers on a daily basis while keeping costs on equipment and software down. Working closely with our team at CDW we engineered a solution where CA ARCserve Backup would manage the backup duties to multiple tape libraries. This solution not only worked flawlessly, but was easy to setup and requires very little maintenance.

For many years, Syncronet were proponents of Backup Exec as the primary suite of choice for backup and recovery products. But of late, we decided that it was time for a change so we looked to CA and their ARCServe suite of backup and data protection products.

Best of all, our techs love it and that's saying something! We now run only ARCServe recovery products inhouse and are converting most of our customers over as well. Thanks CA, for making the art of backup and recovery easy again!
