Beginning with Arkeia's x20 series appliances, all Arkeia appliances are vmOneStep. Each appliance includes the functionality of Arkeia's standalone vStorage Backup Agent. These appliances embed VMware's Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK) libraries, licensed from VMware. Without any further software installation, you can include the backup of VMware hypervisors in your backup strategy managed by an Arkeia appliance.
All Rx20 models support Arkeia Progressive Deduplication™ technology and the license is included with R320 and R620 models. Arkeia's deduplication is truly global: it deduplicates data blocks across different servers, virtual machines and hypervisors, maximizing your backup storage reduction.
Disaster Recovery Appliances
All Arkeia's Rx20 series appliances feature pxe, dhcp and tftp servers automating the netboot of a server for automated system recovery; the target computer will boot on the appropriate Disaster Recovery ISO and starts the full bare-metal restore at the required Point-In-Time-recovery (PITR), based on the backups of the machine.
Backup Appliances for Remote Offices
Backup appliances are ideal for remote/branch offices that have limited on-site IT support. The growth of multi-site, distributed data within an enterprise calls for a remote office backup solution that not only protects data, but ensures overall business continuity. Enterprises with remote or branch offices (ROBO) require speedy recoveries, centralized management, and ease-of-use all at manageable costs. Read more.
