Complete Data Backup, No Licensing Costs


Fujitsu Siemens Computers to add CA backup software to its FibreCAT backup family line-up at no extra charge

Munich , Jan 16, 2007, From February 2007, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will enhance its strong-selling FibreCAT storage systems with CA’s BrightStor ARCserve Backup solution and XOsoft Enterprise Rewinder continuous data protection software. The offer covers both the FibreCAT NX and FibreCAT SX disk storage systems and FibreCAT TX tape storage systems. The bundles make it easier for companies to protect their business-critical data, as well as delivering savings of EUR 2,900 in software licensing fees. Bundled licenses each cover to one server, without time limitation.

Storage industry analyst Dennis Szubert welcomed the move: “Today, it is becoming ever more important for small and medium businesses to ensure that they have enterprise-class data backup and storage, due to factors such as legislation and the potentially catastrophic consequences of losing business critical data. With its new initiative, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is combining fully-licensed best-of-breed data protection software products with its trusted storage hardware solutions", said the Principal Analyst at UK-based Quocirca.

Dr Helmut Beck, Vice President Storage at Fujitsu Siemens Computers said: “We have created this product bundle because we believe that a comprehensive data protection solution should not cost a fortune, and we are committed to providing FibreCAT customers with backup software that addresses the particular needs of small and medium-sized businesses , without adding the burden of additional licensing fees. Dealing with business-critical data is one of today’s most important tasks for IT staff. Despite ever-growing volumes of information, it is important to keep the timeframe for data backup and restore as small as possible. To achieve this requires both reliable storage hardware and the corresponding software for data management, backup and recovery.”

Data backup with software from CA
CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup is a flexible, integrated backup and recovery solution that allows central management of the backup environment. The software is designed to back up business-critical data in small and medium-sized enterprises, ensuring data availability at all times.

CA XOsoft Enterprise Rewinder is compatible with such file and database servers as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL servers and Oracle database systems. Administration is easy, via the central GUI. All changes are documented and saved during operation, which closes the remaining gaps in conventional backup systems and achieves continuous data protection (CDP).

XOsoft Enterprise Rewinder software can be expanded with the addition of XOsoft WANSync products to allow data backup and distribution over longer distances, for example when used bybranch offices.

A long-standing CA partner , Fujitsu Siemens Computers now offers the BrightStor product family along with the entire XOsoft product range with immediate availability.
