- Arkeia Software, a leading provider of fast,
easy-to-use, and affordable network backup solutions today
announced its participation in the NetApp Alliance Partner Program
as part of its continued commitment to providing the deepest
support of storage platforms in the network and data backup to the
While Arkeia has supported the NetApp product
line for almost 10 years, this partnership allows Arkeia to deepen
its support of NetApp's NAS and SAN storage products, as well as
the NDMP open source standard for data management. Whether the need
is to protect a virtualized environment, a traditional data center,
or data in the cloud, Arkeia and NetApp work together to maximize
the benefits to the customer.
Today, hundreds of mutual customers benefit
from Arkeia's support of NetApp's storage products for their long
term backup. Using NetApp Integrated Data Protection technologies
(Snapshot copies and replication) in conjunction with Arkeia
provides customers with increased flexibility in how they protect
their network data.
"Arkeia data protection software is an ideal
complement to NetApp storage," explains George F. Kapaniris,
Vice-President of Business Development of NSS Corp., a longtime
distributor of Arkeia solutions in Southeastern Europe and
simultaneously a Certified Partner of NetApp. "Our customers use
Arkeia Network Backup primarily to move backup sets off-site,
whether to tape or cloud destinations. Arkeia offers a proven
solution that is easy-to-use and easy-to-sell."
By using Arkeia's Progressive Deduplication™, customers now
can lower the disk capacity required to backup any network by up to
95%. "Progressive Deduplication is the next generation of
deduplication, optimized for the compression of secondary data and
management of backup sets. The technology minimizes network
traffic, shortens backup windows, and drastically cuts the cost of
tape or disk usage," says Howard Doherty, vice president of Sales
at Arkeia Software. "Shorter backup windows and storage cost
savings are driving the backup market today. Arkeia's ability to
provide the newest technology for deduplication allows us to meet
both of those key drivers for customers."
As organizations across all market segments migrate to
virtualization, Arkeia enables reliable, centralized backups,
whatever their combination of virtual and physical environments.
Arkeia protects all the major virtualized environments, including
VMware's vSphere, Microsoft's Hyper-V, and Citrix's XenServer."
