For small, medium or large size businesses, Arcserve Backup offers lots of rich features for the price and depending on configuration can provide everything from basic backups to full-scale data management, protection, and fast recovery. BMR features allow for quicker recovery of windows servers and workstations. Having cloud-based storage options allows for Arcserve Backup to cover local, offsite and DR backup scenarios.

If you have a large enterprise level environment and want to not only improve your backup systems but also implement replication then Arcserve is well suited. If you only have a small number of machines or are primarily Linux based, then the product is simply not suited and there are better alternates out there.

I think that Arcserve Backup is especially well suited for smaller locations, sites that have physical servers, or in locations where cost is a concern. I have not used it with Vmware, as we use Veeam Backup and Replication for that, but I understand that it is fully capable to do a great job with virtual environments. We have also not used it for replication, but know that it performs this task very well.

Restorations are easy and painless. These Arcserve appliances have exceeded my expectations. Our daily “bread-and-butter” operations revolve around web servers and databases. I feel more confident than ever that file/database recovery operations will continue to be successful. These appliances live up to their claims.

It is well suited for an all-in-one backup solution. Also works well with Exchange.

What is Arcserve Backup?

Arcserve Backup is a comprehensive storage management solution for distributed and multiplatform environments that can backup and restore data from every machine on your network, including those running Windows, UNIX, and Linux.

Formerly of CA Technologies before Arcserve's divestiture (July 2014), Arcserve Backup utilizes magnetic tape storage backup as part of its storage management offering.

It offers control and visibility from one management console, whether supporting small-scale or large-scale enterprise environments across different platforms and organizations.

Jobs are submitted on a primary server and can be run either locally on the primary server itself, or remotely on any of the associated member servers. Users can perform and monitor job operations such as backup, restore, merge, scan, migrate, copy, compare, and so on for all servers from the primary server.

In addition, a central catalog file is created with descriptive information about each session and allows users to select the specific files and directories to be restored without having to query the database itself. When data needs to be restored, the program can quickly browse the content of each session in the catalog file from a single central location to locate the information.

With central reporting, users can launch and create scheduled reports for all servers in a domain from the primary server. Schedule, preview, print or email reports for all domain servers from the primary server.
