arcserve Unified Data Protection to Extend Products into Appliance Market

arcserve has announced it is updating Unified Data Protection (UDP), which first debuted back in May of 2014, by expanding its product portfolio into the Purpose-Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) market in early 2015 with platforms powered by UDP.  In addition, the company has announced a free edition of its software for endpoint backup and recovery, as well as a powerful update to UDP, which includes enhancements for improved application and hypervisor environment protection.


arcserve’s UDP combines backup, replication, high availability and global de-duplication technologies within one unified console for virtual and physical systems. arcserve UDP Update 2 will introduce new features to protect business-critical applications and hypervisors including a focus on granular recovery capabilities for key Windows-based applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SharePoint and Oracle. It also will add capabilities for Hyper-V and VMware infrastructures and more than 50 management and usability enhancements. 

The new fully-functional arcserve UDP free workstation uses local disk or remote share as backup targets. The ability to leverage arcserve Recovery Point Server (RPS) is available on a trail basis, which includes support for global deduplication.

arcserve UDP also features:

  • Unified management console for all data protection needs
  • True global deduplication 
  • Very flexible yet powerful data protection and availability plans
  • Agentless backup for VMware & Hyper-V (Windows & Linux VMs)
  • Support for physical systems (Windows & Linux)
  • Built-in replication & high availability
  • Migration of disk images to tape, with granular restore from disk or tape
  • On-premise, off-premise or in the cloud


arcserve UDP Update 2 and the free workstation edition will be available in late November 2014.
