When we launched Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), we successfully took on the challenge of unifying data protection in one platform, one that combines global source-side deduplication, replication, high availability and ease of use. The use of the term “platform” has a deep meaning for us. We built UDP to be a technology that is inherently deployable in multiple modalities:  software, appliance or cloud.  The true benefits of actually building code for a next generation appliance that can scale and cover many use cases are obvious:  easier deployment and usability, affordability, and performance.

For customers who require a cost-effective, “set and forget” data protection solution, the new Arcserve UDP 7000 <!——>announced today is the first complete data protection appliance with Assured Recovery™ and cloud-native capabilities.


UDP appliances fit the traditional backup appliance category as it is a turnkey solution with the required data protection capabilities in one system. However, unlike other solutions, it offers more ease of use and deployment and more functional capabilities. This means faster backups, lower bandwidth utilization, optimized BC/DR, and lower storage utilization while improving your data protection service level agreements.

UDP appliances are by design a deduplication appliance but differ significantly in technology and customer benefits. UDP appliances are not target deduplication systems which traditionally ingest backup data streams from other backup applications. Rather, they are a true global source-side deduplication appliance with all the efficiency benefits of performing source-side deduplication vs. target side deduplication.

UDP appliances are also failover appliances, as they include the native replication and availability capabilities of UDP. This is particularly true of the “V” appliance models which include capabilities to support 3 stand-by virtual machines.

UDP appliances also fit the gateway category through the native capabilities to replicate data to private and public cloud services, MSPs or the upcoming Arcserve recovery as a service option.

This is not just an evolution of what a data protection appliance is, but a true generational leap forward, a revolution in how you will be able to deploy data protection in your organization.
