  • Arcserve Backup has had a positive impact on ROI, as a reseller we are able to build in a healthy profit margin by reselling the product and services.
  • Some of our company managed services are based upon clients running Arcserve Backup.
  • Data recovery and system recovery times have reduced over product upgrades and enhancements, causing much less downtime.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to roll back up and replication into one product, which reduced the costs without having to go with multiple vendors.
  • As a result of Arcserve UDP, we were able to implement a full DR scenario test, which until that point hadn't been successful.

  • Arcserve Backup is relatively low cost in comparison to some other products. It is full-featured and continues to receive additional updates and added features. This makes it an ideal backup solution for smaller sites and the reliability to restore from backups is excellent.

  • Deploying Arcserve UDP with the "copy-to-tape" option allowed us to reuse well over 50 LTO5 tapes used by our previous backup solution. Further, we extended data retention on site (maintaining monthly backups on disk) as well as extending off site data retention on tape.

Return on Investment

  • Using arcserve UDP we managed to reuse the storage used for the previous solution and extend the backup retention to 3 months from two weeks!
  • The cost of using a single solution for backup, DR and replication is much lower than using backup software, VMware SRM and storage replications.
  • BMR capabilities and v2v allows us to use VMware on the production mixture of VMware and hyper-v on the DR to reduce the costs.

  • I can't say that it had any ROI, because that term is misused by most businesses, marketers, etc.. Did purchasing it literally make us any money? No. Only true investments make money. However, because we used Arcserve, we no longer had to worry about data loss and we were happy with the purchase price.

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.
