Arcserve comes to HCI with its N Series appliances
A historic player in the backup market, Arcserve presents two N Series appliances designed to back up and protect data and applications. They are equipped, among other things, with Sophos’s cyber Intercept X advanced solution and integrate with the unified management console for hyperconverged systems Nutanix Prism.
Specializing in data protection and business continuity solutions, Arcserve announces its latest generation of N Series appliances. These all-in-one backup and disaster recovery devices protect data and workloads against cyberattacks or other types of disasters, regardless of their type or quantity and in all types of environments, physical, virtual or cloud.
Available now, the N1100-4 and N1200-4 appliances feature Arcserve UDP Orchestrated Restore, which includes instant VMs and local or remote standby virtual volumes. They also integrate with Prism, Nutanix’s hyperconverged systems management console. Finally, to protect data against cyberattacks such as ransomware or malware, they have Intercept X advanced from Sophos. In addition, the N Series can back up various types of virtualized workloads based on Nutanix AHV, VMware vSphere and Hyper-V hypervisors.
A late arrival on the HCI
According to Matt Urmston, executive vice president of product management at Arcserve quoted in the company’s press release, “Arcserve removes the complexity inherent in do it yourself approaches to building and crafting a comprehensive data protection solution that includes a resilient platform, scalability needs for an expanding protection landscape, and cybersecurity needs”.
Finally, note that Arcserve is not the first to take an interest in backing up HCI systems, competitors such as Rubrik, Hycu and Cohesity have already been offering it for several years.
