CA Technologies recently announced that its industry-leading CA ARCserve Backup and Recovery technology will be available to customers as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering based on the Windows Azure platform.
The new Windows Azure-based solution is scheduled for availability in the second half of 2011. Customers will find this solution attractive in situations where conventional, internally deployed backup-and-restore systems and software implementation are not feasible or practical from a financial or operational perspective. Small businesses or remote offices that lack the necessary on-site IT staff are some examples of where this solution could be applied.
The new solution is designed to meet the needs of CA Technologies and Microsoft partners—especially those who want to incorporate its data protection functionality into their broader cloud-based IT management offerings.
