Customers of Tarsus Cloud On Demand, local cloud distributor and hybrid cloud enablement partner, will now be able to take advantage of the recently announced release of the new Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) solution. The Arcserve UDP offering will allow customers to tap into a solution that delivers continuous availability and simplicity from within a multi-platform system.

With backup and recovery rapidly gaining traction as a key service for businesses to move to the cloud, the use of Arcserve UDP will enable customers to dramatically reduce recovery time and in turn leverage continuous availability, instant recovery and replication across cloud, virtual and physical environments.

"Customers want cloud solutions that are merely an extension of their IT strategy; this means that they want technologies that simplify the cloud experience while offering the 'safety' of traditional systems," states Jonathan Kropf, CEO at Tarsus Cloud On Demand. "We have been the local distributor of Arcserve since 2015 and have seen customers benefit greatly from using it in their hybrid cloud environments.

"Now, with the new release of UDP, Arcserve literally re-imagines data protection with Linux and Windows-focused support, wizard-driven set-up and faster, more flexible recovery options, and accelerates partner revenue opportunities."

According to Arcserve, the UDP solution already encompasses global source-side deduplication and automated disaster recovery testing, but has now introduced significant advancements in data protection for Linux environments, instant VM recovery and instant Bare Metal recovery, unified installation and enhancements for third party integration.

Significant feature enhancements include: Wizard-driven, single installation set-up; faster, more flexible recovery options with enterprise storage array snapshot integration; instant VM recovery; and instant Bare Metal Restore. With regards to the extension of Linux support, customers can now leverage file/folder level recovery of Linux VMs backed up via agentless, host-based backups on vSphere and Hyper-V hosts, infinite incremental backup, and much more.

Furthermore, the data protection advancements for Windows includes Exchange granular recovery for non-e-mail items, without needing to restore the entire mailbox store, Windows 10 support and more. Customers can also now use management authority with role-based administration, reboot-less Windows Agent deployment and a new Command Line Interface (CLI); as well as a Unified Tape Management module to manage the scheduling, monitoring and migration of recovery points to tape - directly from within the UDP console.

All capabilities will be available across the Arcserve UDP portfolio of solutions, making it ideal for DRaaS, SMEs, mid-market and decentralised enterprises.

"DRaaS is most certainly a key cloud drive for local customers and I believe that with the new extended capabilities of UDP, customers will be able to take advantage of a reduction in data size at a lower cost, all coupled with superior protection for their information assets," ends Kropf.
