Data backup for Servers and PC’s

You run a business and deliver a wide range of products or services, but few things are more important than protecting your companies data. Backup Manager is a suite of data management applications that make it easier and more affordable to protect and restore your company data and can be managed from a central console to ensure you consistently meet and manage recovery SLAs.

Backup Manager | Standard/Advanced/SBS/Workstation/Virtual are disk-based recovery products that simplify, and speed the recovery of company or customer data. They provide single-snapshot backup and recovery solutions in a cost-effective, easy-to-manage package. Facilitating faster backups, bare-metal restore to dissimilar hardware and integrated access to off-premise cloud storage for physical and virtual servers as well as for laptops and desktop workstations.

Backup Manager | Replication provides continuous, scheduled and ad-hoc replication to help balance network utilization and the data protection needs of customers. Quickly restore data from accidental or malicious data loss and damage. Multiple replication options are possible with this solution; One-to-one, many-to-one and one-to-many provide greater flexibility and helps to reduce the cost of disaster recovery.

Different versions of Backup Manager are available to accommodate any need and budget. Below is a comparison and the varying features they offer.

Backup Manager | Replication

provides added disaster recovery protections to compliment the product set and can work together with the versions above or as a standalone product to ensure that your customers most critical business data is always up to date, protected and accessible.

In independent testing conducted by Network Testing Lab, Backup Manager proved to be a superior data recovery tool to Symantec’s Backup Exec System Recovery. In the test results published in August 2010, Backup Manager was found to be more scalable and feature rich, much easier to use, more technically advanced, faster, more reliable and less expensive. Its Bare Metal Restore uses only a fraction of the computing resources required by Symantec, plus Backup Manager’s backups are 70% faster and its recoveries are completed in half the time.


Backup Manager is based on CA Technologies CA ARCserve® D2D R16, and supports your customers’ Windows-based environments and delivers a host of core capabilities, including:

Block Level Infinite Incremental Backup

This patent-pending technology uses less storage space, performs backups faster and puts less of a load on your production servers. Disk-to-disk backups are based on CA’s block-level I2 Technology™ that has been designed to intelligently manage backing up only blocks of data that have changed since the last backup and presenting a consolidated point-in-time view of the protected volume for multiple recovery types Designed manage the backup of only data that has changed since the last backup—reducing your recovery time.

Protection for Virtual Servers

This provides a single user interface to help protect virtual servers as well as physical servers, saving training time and simplifying operations. Block-level I2 Technology helps reduce backup time, storage space, network usage, workload on the production servers and recovery time for virtualized servers.

Single Snapshot Backup with Five Restore Types

Single-pass backup enables you to rapidly restore files, volumes, databases, Microsoft® Exchange emails and attachments or the entire system to any server in both physical and virtual environments. One snapshot helps to ensure recovery of your data in the most efficient manner.

Bare Metal Restore to Dissimilar Hardware

Bare-metal restore offers a lightning-fast way to recover a crashed server to the same or dissimilar hardware. It simply paints the picture of the original drive back onto the new drive and restarts the system – reducing to just minutes a process that can potentially take hours.

Physical-to-Virtual Server Migration

The flexibility to migrate from physical servers to virtual servers, from one virtual platform to another and from virtual servers to physical servers is easily achieved.

Point-In-Time Backup View

This provides a full, point-in-time view of the disk for rapid recovery of files, folders, volumes, Exchange emails and databases, making the recovery process easier and saving valuable time..

High Frequency Backups

Perform backups every 15 minutes for greater levels of protection, improved recovery point objectives (RPOs) and reduced risk.

Backup Throttling

Customize your backup performance processes to balance system usage to reduce the load on other mission-critical applications and services that need more of the system resources.

Integrated Access to Cloud Storage

Enables you to take advantage of cloud services for remote, off-site protection, archiving or additional storage capacity. It enables the flexibility of cloud services for your data protection.

Granular Mailbox Recovery

Granular recovery enables you to recover a single email or an attachment to an email, rather than needing to take the time or resources to recover an entire Exchange server.

Desktop/Laptop Protection

Laptop theft, accidents and errors can jeopardize key business data residing on laptop and desktop workstations today. Avoid the cost of downtime with the same protection that you use with your servers.


Protect your data from prying eyes by encrypting your backups and rest easy that your data is safe, no matter where it is stored.

Protection for Remote Offices and Branch Offices

protect remote offices with local backup and recovery and then replicate the backup files to a central location by using Backup Manager | Replication.
