Arkeia Announces New Generation of Backup Appliances With Integrated Disk, Tape and Backup Software

SAN DIEGO, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkeia Software, a worldwide provider of backup and disaster recovery products, today announced a new generation of fully integrated backup appliances. Four new Arkeia Physical Appliances deliver increased disk capacities, expanded interface support, improved internal tape options, and fully integrated and optimized Arkeia Network Backup v8 software. The new line of table-top and rack-mounted appliances drives down the cost and complexity of deploying backup server infrastructure.

"Arkeia Physical Appliances remove the complexity of purchasing, configuring and managing a backup server, a tape drive and all of the related management software," said Jeff Woods, IT Director at Tri-County Patriots for Independent Living, an appliance customer since 2007. "These next-generation appliances mean we can protect even more data, more easily, and use the best combination of disk and tape to meet our backup, recovery, and budgetary objectives."

  New Appliance Capabilities include:

Increased disk capacities across the new line so organizations can fully leverage the benefits of disk to achieve fast backups and restores. The four models come with internal disk capacities thatrange from 1TB to 10TB usable with RAID-1 or RAID-5. Additional external storage interfaces to connect appliances to a LAN (1Gbps), and to connect external storage devices directly or via a SAN.  Tape device and tape library direct interfaces now include eSATA, Fibre Channel, SAS, and SCSI.

Internal Quantum LTO-3 or Quantum DAT 72 tape drives for organizations that want a complete disk-to-tape backup system.  Included is Arkeia's Disk-to-disk-to-tape management software to seamlessly integrate backup-to-disk and archive-to-tape.
