CA ARCserve r16 Outperforms Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 in Comparative Product Review, Supporting Both Physical and Virtual Environments

MUMBAI, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Singular Solution Wins Again for Best Data Protection and Business Continuity

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that CA ARCserve® r16 has beaten Veeam® Backup & Replication™ 6.5 in every category of a recent comparative review, once again earning the Network Testing Labs (NTL) "World Class Award" for best data protection and business continuity solution.

The CA Technologies-commissioned review compared the capabilities of CA ARCserve and Veeam Backup & Replication around image-based backup, file-based backup, replication/high availability and usability.

"In complete contrast to Veeam Backup & Replication, which only supports virtual systems, CA ARCserve is equally at home in both physical and virtual environments," said Barry Nance, President of Network Testing Labs, who has evaluated thousands of hardware and software products for publications like Computerworld, BYTE Magazine, Government Computer News, PC Magazine, Network Computing, and Network World. "The more mature, more reliable and more feature-complete CA ARCserve gave us both file- and image-based backup, demonstrated faster performance, had better SRM reporting, exhibited far greater uptime and availability and cost less to operate."

Review highlights:

  • The review called CA ARCserve "a single answer for IT organizations that need both physical server and virtual server backup and recovery". It said that in a hybrid physical/virtual environment, Veeam Backup & Replication "forces you to license two different vendors' backup and recovery products - one physical, the other virtual. The two-vendor approach doesn't make sense because it's more expensive and less productive." 
  • CA ARCserve supports more virtual platforms than Veeam and protects the entire Hyper-V hypervisor host, while Veeam Backup & Replication does not. "CA ARCserve can thus recover an entire virtual host, as a single entity."
  • In comparing image-based backup functionality, the reviewer noted that "CA ARCserve's I2 (Infinite Incremental)™ is faster than Veeam Backup & Replication's synthetic full backup process."
  • Unlike Veeam Backup & Replication, CA ARCserve supports tape and provides a wealth of file-based backup features. CA ARCserve is also "fast, reliable and frugal in its use of storage space, offering built-in data deduplication at no additional cost."
  • CA ARCserve includes a High Availability component for companies needing maximum system uptime and availability for business-critical servers and applications. "Simply put, Veeam Backup & Replication lacks CA ARCserve's feature-rich, mature ability to replicate, monitor and automatically fail over critical servers," according to the report.

"Organisations are looking for comprehensive solutions that can safeguard all of their data and application assets regardless of the platform on which they reside," said Steve Fairbanks, vice president, Product Delivery, Data Management, CA Technologies. "This new review clearly demonstrates the key strength of CA ARCserve as a singular solution that protects customers' complex environments, while at the same time being easy to purchase, own and manage."

The review follows other recent studies commissioned by CA Technologies in which CA ARCserve r16 outperformed Symantec™ Backup Exec™ 2012 and CommVault® Simpana® 9.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
