Backup Review: Arcserve Named the Top Cloud Backup Solution

MAY 11TH, 2022

The cloud backup market is projected to grow to more than $4 billion between 2022 and 2028—a 12.5 percent CAGR. There are plenty of good reasons businesses are making investments in cloud backup solutions. More on that later. But first, we are proud to share that Arcserve was at the top of the list of the Top 100 Cloud Backup Companies for SMBs from Backup Review. With so many cloud backup options, Backup Review’s goal is to help companies choose the best online backup provider for their specific needs. The Top 100 is broken into four categories: consumer, small and medium business (SMB), enterprise, and enablers. Arcserve was number one in cloud backup for SMBs and a top 10 provider for enterprises and enablers.

Here are the factors that came into play during the selection process:

  • Cost per GB
  • Cost per PC or account
  • Security
  • Speed (backup and restore)
  • Reliability
  • Uptime
  • Quality
  • Customer Service
  • Accessibility
  • Company Financial standing

Arcserve Cloud Direct: Checking All the Boxes

Starting with the first bullet, cloud backup makes good economic sense. Consider that Arcserve Cloud Direct cloud backup is available for as little as $50/TB per month. And Arcserve Cloud Direct is the only direct-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service (BaaS/DRaaS) that gives you comprehensive data protection, consumer-like ease of use, and doesn’t require any hardware on-premises. It’s also scalable and flexible, giving you always-on continuity with industry-best RTOs and RPOs.

Built as a cloud-native software as a service (SaaS) solution, Arcserve Cloud Direct solves the problems SMBs (and distributed enterprises) often face. That is, making the choice between a solution that delivers fast recovery times (RTOs) but can lead to the loss of hours or days of data (RPOs) or maintaining high system availability while struggling with high costs and more complexity.

Arcserve Cloud Direct lets you easily manage your backup and disaster recovery (DR) and restore service-level agreements (SLAs) from a simple, web-based UI. You can protect any system and application from data loss and get back in business faster.

Under the Hood

Arcserve Cloud Direct works by installing a lightweight agent on your local servers and replicates data in its native file format. The result is a complete backup of the server image, including OS, files, directories, and applications. Your data is transferred directly over the internet to the Arcserve Cloud—no need for an appliance or local staging drive. After your initial backup, only changed data is sent.

You can easily manage your data and multiple tenants anytime and anywhere, with complete visibility with the centralized, self-service console. If you need to restore your data, you just choose from multiple server image recovery points to recover a server in the Arcserve Cloud as a VM.
