CA Technologies Offers New Customers Unlimited Data Protection for Three Years; Users of Symantec, CommVault, Veeam and Other Data Protection who Switch to CA ARCserve Eligible to Receive Pricing Discounts and Additional Maintenance Credits
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ISLANDIA, NY -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced a competitive upgrade offer for data backup and recovery software targeted at customers facing spiraling data growth, IT complexity and budget pressures.
From now until March 31, 2013, eligible businesses who replace a competitor's backup or disaster recovery software with CA ARCserve can purchase an unlimited-use Managed Capacity license for their business for the next three years* -- at a set price regardless of any organic growth in their storage requirements. At the end of the third year, customers can renew for the amount of data being protected at that time. In addition, CA Technologies is offering its partners a 25% discount off the current standard MSRP.
CA ARCserve Managed Capacity licensing allows organizations to more flexibly mix and match functionality and cost-effectively address their unique data protection requirements, offering one simple license, priced per terabyte of protected data.
"I absolutely love ARCserve Managed Capacity," said Martin Silverman, director of IT at EvensonBest, LLC, a New York City-based furniture distributor. "I call it my Swiss Army Knife of backup."
Customers who replace a competitor's backup or disaster recovery software with CA ARCserve may also be eligible to receive an additional credit towards any maintenance agreements on their existing data protection solution. This addresses a significant pain point typically involved in switching data protection solutions.
"Customers are being overwhelmed by the relentlessly rising cost and complexity of safeguarding the growing volumes of data associated with their business-critical applications and services--especially as their IT environment becomes increasingly virtualized," said Chris Ross, vice president, Worldwide Sales, Data Management, CA Technologies. "This special offer gives customers an even greater opportunity to move to CA ARCserve and fulfill their data protection requirements more easily and efficiently than ever before."
CA Technologies recently announced key product and pricing enhancements to CA ARCserve that uniquely address the growing demand of customers and service providers for simple, comprehensive data protection. The enhancements include simplified solution licensing and pricing that offers greater economy and flexibility to achieve recovery time and recovery point objectives.
CA ARCserve earned the Network Testing Labs (NTL) "World Class Award" for best data protection and business continuity by significantly outperforming CommVault Simpana 9, Symantec Backup Exec 2012 and Veeam Backup & Replication6.5 in recent comparative reviews commissioned by CA Technologies.
