VMware Virtual Infrastructure and CA Recovery Management (CA ARCserve Backup and CA Xosoft products) team up to deliver higher availability and risk-resistance for business-critical information and applications, while lowering management and operational costs and complexity.
In this flash demo, see how CA ARCserve Backup r12 can help your business protect your most vital information — business data. Take this opportunity to quickly view a few powerful features and benefits of the backup virtualization technology available in CA ARCserve Backup.
CA ARCserve® Backup, CA XOsoft™ Replication, and CA XOsoft™ High Availability provide several key features that enable you to both protect virtualized servers and benefit from server virtualization in your overall recovery management strategy
Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.
Although efficient and reliable backups form the foundation of a complete DR strategy, IT teams still face several hurdles to retrieve critical information from a restore operation. Download this paper to learn more.
For small and midsize businesses, the new VMware vSphere 4.1 delivers higher efficiency, greater agility and more freedom of choice than ever before, making it easier than ever to optimize existing assets and get always-on IT with comprehensive, cost-effective backup and recovery.
LifeLink Foundation needed to provide business continuity and DR of critical transplant related information to multiple locations and needed to manage DR planning and implementation in a hurricane zone. Learn how VMware & Dell EqualLogic worked together to implement two remote sites providing consolidated virtual storage, snapshot-based backup and recovery.
PC life-cycle management (PCLM) solutions primarily focus on deploying or moving an application or an operating environment to a new user location. Functions include packaging, distributing, installing , and updating an application or an operating environment. These solutions provide a certain level of automation and are certainly more advanced than dealing strictly with scripts. However, they have complex workflows and do not provide the highest level of automation. In today's multidevice world, where the average user carries three or more devices, this paradigm alone is not agile enough for modern end users.
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.
Companies have rapidly adopted server virtualization over the past few years, but there are big differences in their use of the technology. Most companies are able to reduce server hardware spending, but many don't realize an ongoing reduction in management costs.
Frustrated by the costs of maintain ever larger data centers-or building new ones-many companies are exploring virtualization. Virtualization lets your IT staff turn your data center into an internal cloud of computing resources controlled by a single virtual data center operating system (VDC-OS).
In an economic environment that is repeatedly heralding the message "do more with less" the efficiency of hypervisors are an oft-overlooked aspect of virtual infrastructure acquisition that has massive impact on total price.
Today's use of virtualization technology allows IT professionals to automatically manage the resources of the physical server to efficiently support multiple operating systems, each supporting different applications. This IDC Technology Assessment presents IDC's view of how virtualization technologies are impacting and will continue to impact operating environments and the operating environment market near- and long-term.
VMware virtualization enables customers to reduce their server TCO and quickly delivers signification ROI. This paper describes commonly used TCO models and looks at several case studies that apply TCO models to virtualization projects. Learn more.
