CA ARCserve Backup delivers industry-leading, enterprise-class data protection for a wide range of operating environments. It includes the following features:
Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Workstation support — Protect the latest Microsoft operating system environments. Backup and restore NTFS deduplicated and ReFS volumes. Protect Hyper-V 3.0 virtual servers and gain support for Windows Storage Spaces. What's New in r16.5?
Integrated Cloud Storage — Easily take advantage of cloud services as part of a disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C) backup policy 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.
Synthetic Full Backups — Reduce recovery time and complexity by providing a “full” backup picture to recover from, eliminating the tedious process of restoring multiple backups to recover to a specific point in time. This is important because it results in less downtime, a more reliable recovery process and reduced IT resource time.
Archiving — Reduce backup windows, network traffic and storage management costs by archiving data to disk, tape or the cloud. This is important to manage the growing volumes of data while reducing the drain on your physical resources, prolonging your infrastructure investment.
Integration with CA ARCserve D2D — Reduce risk and improve recovery times by using a combination of snapshot-based backups (CA ARCserve D2D) and traditional file-based backups (CA ARCserve Backup) to protect your servers. Quick recovery with the most efficient methodology, based on the type of outage, results in reduced downtime costs, increased employee productivity and more time for IT personnel to pursue strategic projects.
Integrated Data Deduplication — Improve the economics of backup and recovery by enabling longer retention periods. In this way, you can provide a cost-effective means of reducing storage, protecting critical data and integrating, configuring and managing data deduplication in the existing backup environment.

Protection of Virtualized Servers — Incorporate sophisticated backup and recovery functionality into VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer virtualization technologies, easing management and mitigating the risk of data on virtualized servers.
A Dashboard with Storage Resource Manager (SRM) Reporting — Proactively avoid downtime with graphical insight into your backup environment to monitor the status of all backup activities, find the nodes that are taking the longest, locate backed-up data, discover whether data is encrypted and ready for disaster recovery and track volume, disk and memory usage on each of your Production servers.
Centralized Management and Administration — Reduce management time and help to provide faster responses by enabling IT Administrators to manage, modify and control backup and restore jobs, media devices, activity logs, alerts, catalogs, product licensing and reports from a single point that spans local and remote servers and locations.
Infrastructure Visualization — Simplify system management with an easy-to-read network diagram view of the entire environment. The diagram includes all of the servers, storage and other devices, showing how they relate to each other and to the CA ARCserve Backup Media server(s). Easy drilldown on each component offers status, backup methodology and other key information to reduce management time.
Support for Advanced Backup and Restore — Protect your business-critical applications with specific agents, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server and SharePoint; Oracle; Lotus Domino; SAP R/3; and Sybase. Help to ensure data integrity by protecting the transaction log, archive log, journal files and all associated data.
Flexible Backup Methods — Use high-performance, non-disruptive backup and restore operations that help to meet the specific needs of your mission-critical information and data assets. These include backup to disk, backup to tape, disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) backup, disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C) backup, virtual tape library (VTL) and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshot support, hardware snapshot support, multiplexing and multi-streaming. All of these work in concert to protect your data, help you recover quickly and meet your service-level agreements (SLAs) for recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs).
Efficient Backup Processes — Improve the performance and reliability of your backup, storage and server environment with patent-pending data deduplication and SRM reporting functionality. These features help eliminate redundant data and reduce storage costs, enabling you to store more recovery points on a given disk and provide actionable information to help reduce unplanned downtime.
UNIX/Linux Data Movers for Storage Area Network (SAN)–Based Backups — Provide faster, more efficient backups and restores for databases and file systems on UNIX and Linux servers while also providing centralized management, reporting and licensing for all servers via the CA ARCserve Backup Media server.
Media Assure Technology — Provide automated testing of the data on your backup media, verifying that it is readable and writable, helping you report on the usability of all media and verify whether it is accessible without identification.
CA ARCserve Replication and CA ARCserve High Availability Integration — Eliminate backup windows by browsing and backing up replicated data, restoring data to the Production or Replica server, viewing CA ARCserve Replication and CA ARCserve High Availability reports and launching the CA ARCserve Replication and CA ARCserve High Availability graphical user interface (GUI) from within the CA ARCserve Backup GUI.
Wide Area Network (WAN) Bandwidth-Optimized Remote Office Backups — Eliminate tapes from remote offices by replicating remote office data to your central data center and perform non-disruptive Replica server backups, helping you to better utilize your existing backup resources.
