We’re very pleased to announce the extension of the Arcserve Cloud service into European Union countries.

In comparison to costly private data centers or difficult to manage public clouds, the Arcserve Cloud delivers the most cost-effective and seamless solution for cloud-based long term backup, retention and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

The cloud service is now available to all Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) software and appliance customers in European Union countries. Serviced from a data centre based out of the Netherlands.

Fully integrated with Arcserve UDP, the Arcserve Cloud is an easy-to-deploy solution for comprehensive offsite data protection, and offers a valuable option for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to extend their solution portfolio with a data protection platform that eliminates the need to purchase and manage multiple cloud solutions.

Encompassing global deduplication, encryption, compression and WAN-optimized replication, the benefits of the cloud service go far beyond data protection with advanced recovery capabilities such as:

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS): Store critical business data for disaster recovery without the cost and maintenance of dedicated hardware, power, additional IT resources or secondary sites for offsite storage. Users may also spin up a virtual machine in the Arcserve Cloud for fast failover and failback, and confirm RTO, RPO and SLAs with fast disaster recovery testing with application level recovery.

Offsite Data Retention: Long-term cloud backup storage as an alternative to local disk or tape for regulatory compliance. It ensures that critical data is fully protected and available offsite so your business is “always on.”

Disaster Recovery Testing: Remote virtual standby to easily test application failover at any time without expensive infrastructure, thereby ensuring data recovery plan efficiency and accuracy.

The new era of cloud data protection is here today – simply connect and go!
