CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby allows recovery points from a CA ARCserve D2D backups to be converted to virtual machines for VMware or Microsoft hypervisors. Using the common CA ARCserve Central Applications interface, to add servers protected by CA ARCserve D2D or to auto populate servers being protected by CA ARCserve Central Host-Based Backup. Creating policy that defines the parameters around creating the virtual machine for the type of hypervisor is straightforward, specifying virtual machine name, CPU and memory, and data store information. Also, the monitor can be configured to watch the virtual machines being protected. If they drop from the network, the virtual machines are created from the latest CA ARCserve D2D recovery point. They can even be automatically started, or manually started.CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby is a web-based solution designed create virtual machines for Hyper-V or VMware from CA ARCserve D2D or CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup recovery points. The configuration is policy based, and all of the information specific to each type of hypervisor is easily added once to the policy, and then can be used to protect any machine having a valid CA ARCserve D2D recovery point. A separate monitor server is configured to check the network availability of the systems defined in the policy. Based upon the frequency and timeout settings, if the production server becomes unavailable, the process to create the virtual machine begins. Anempty virtual machine is created on the hypervisor, and the data is read from the recovery point and restored to the virtual machine. The machine is then either started manually, the default, or can be started automatically. Also, all valid recovery points for a selected server are displayed in the CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby interface. Just click on the link adjacent to the recovery point and the recovery begins.CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby once again demonstrates how applications can enhance CA ARCserve D2D functionality. By converting every recovery point to a virtual machine residing in Hyper-V or ESX hypervisors, full system recovery is as easy as starting a virtual machine. In fact, CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby will start it automatically if the production server becomes unavailable, or configure an alert indicate via email that a recovery may be needed when using manual start. Additionally the restore function built in to the CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby interface are the same supported by CA ARCserve D2D, providing the same restore capabilities from within CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby.OPEN LICENSE PROGRAMCA's Open Licensing Program is an easy-to-use purchasing program that allows you to license CA software at discount prices.
