With Arcserve Replication, it is possible to replicate multiple servers from multiple locations back to a single Replica server at a disaster recovery (DR) site or headquarters (HQ) with built-in, 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption for security. This enables IT staff to regain control of data protection and reduces the risk of the task being done incorrectly or not at all. The IT department can also save money on backup tape transportation.
Backups can be done from the Replica server, eliminating backup window constraints. Data can then be recovered to either the Primary or Replica server.
Bandwidth costs have been dropping significantly. It is easy to replicate data from an HQ to a remote DR site and do away with costly and risky physical media transportation between sites. After the initial synchronization, Arcserve Replication only replicates the block-level changes to the data using 128-bit SSL encryption, so transmission is secure and impact to the wide area network (WAN) is minimal.
Arcserve Replication offers multiple replication options (continuous, periodic and ad-hoc| to enable customers to balance their network resources and the required level of data protection needed. It also includes network bandwidth testing and tuning.
Arcserve Replication supports one-to-one, many-to-one and one-to-many replication. It also provides physical-to-physical, physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual replication.
Using Arcserve Replication to replicate data over the WAN to another site is an ideal way to reduce the cost and risk associated with physically transporting backup data media off-site every day.
It is then possible to perform backups at the remote/DR site for archival purposes right from the Replica server to avoid impacting the Production servers, and eliminate backup window constraints.
Alternatively, it is possible to perform backups locally and then replicate them off-site. Local disk-to-disk backups may be deduplicated because Arcserve Replication includes sparse file support to help eliminate redundant replication of data that has been deduplicated.
