Arcserve Adds Backup Support for Office 365, Nutanix AHV Workloads
… many don’t backup their data outside of any backups provided by their SaaS vendors.
“For example, of the roughly 300 million Office 365 seats, we estimate that fewer than 10% of them are backed up separately from Microsoft’s default policies,” said Goodwin. “IT organizations are learning that the default backup, data retention and SLA policies of SaaS vendors rarely meet corporate requirements; therefore, many IT organizations are starting to look for separate backup capabilities — usually to retain that data on premises, though sometimes in the cloud.”
The new capabilities for Nutanix backups are also interesting news for customers, said Goodwin.
“Nutanix is certainly a leading hyperconverged vendor, and I would imagine this announcement will be important for Nutanix channel partners who are interested in bundling an Arcserve backup solution.”
With the recent trend of backup and disaster recovery services converging rather than remaining as separate operations, the latest release makes sense for users, said Goodwin.
“The Arcserve solution helps to substantially simply disaster recovery by making it an extension of backup,” he said.
