Arcserve ImageManager Updates: Accelerated Recovery Points, Streamlined Uploads, and More Cloud Capabilities

AUGUST 24TH, 2023

Your backups must be effectively managed if you’re going to be sure your data can be recovered when needed. That’s precisely what Arcserve ImageManager delivers. A component of the Arcserve Data Resilience Platform, Arcserve ImageManager puts you in control of your Arcserve ShadowProtect backup files

Advanced Backup Image Verification Enhances Data Resilience

This free management software increases your organization’s data resilience with advanced backup image verification to ensure integrity and availability for fast and reliable recovery. It also helps you effectively maintain and manage your accumulated backup image files and the storage space they use. That includes automatic consolidation of continuous-incremental backup image files to reduce restoration time, risk of backup file corruption, and required storage space.  

Simplified Data Backup Consolidation and Replication

Arcserve ImageManager lets you consolidate backup image files and set retention policies for those files. And you can replicate your data backups onto a local drive or to a network share, so you’re prepared for a small-scale disaster. You can also replicate your backups offsite to a remote server, colocation facility, data center, Amazon S3, or the Arcserve Cloud. That way, you’re prepared for a sitewide or regional disaster. 

Effective Monitoring, Notifications, and Pre-Staged Recovery Features

Included monitoring and notifications features let you easily watch over backup jobs in the user interface and be alerted if issues arise. The software even features pre-staged server recovery, so you can be ready before disaster strikes, reducing downtime. ImageManager also lets you maintain optimal system-wide performance by managing how the software uses system resources through throttling and concurrent processing.
