CA Recovery Management 12.5 Enables Efficiency Date: April, 2009 Author: Lauren Whitehouse, Analyst Abstract: CA steps up its game with new efficiency-focused features in the products that make up its CA Recovery Management suite—CA ARCserve Backup, CA XOsoft Replication, and CA XOsoft High Availability— and attractive bundling and channel programs. Overview Today, Benjamin Franklin’s remark that, "in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" could be revised to include “death, taxes, and data growth.” Data growth is responsible for much of the investment IT makes in its infrastructure to store, manage, transport, and back up data. Ever-increasing data growth was a catalyst for the tape-to-disk transition the data protection market experienced a few years ago to solve the backup window challenge. And, now that disk has secured its place as a backup target, data growth is compelling organizations, once again, to examine ways to optimize capacity, especially since ESG research respondents cited data protection as the application that will be most responsible for storage growth over the next 24 months. 1 At the same time, the gloomy economic picture is forcing many companies to spend more cautiously or to invest in technologies and solutions that provide rapid and unarguable ROI. IT initiatives tied to delivering greater efficiency and cost reduction are less likely to be impacted by budget constraints. ESG research revealed that data reduction technologies, including data deduplication, were near the top of respondents’ top priorities over the next 24 months (see Figure 1). 2 FIGURE 1.
