CA XOsoft Supported Configurations

NOTES:

  • This matrix is valid for the product(s) available for this release, unless otherwise specified, or unless restrictions/limitations are explicitly specified.

  • The CA XOsoft products do not have specific hardware requirements but rather depends on the operating system & applications in use. Reference the minimum requirements for the operating system the CA XOsoft product is running on and the protected applications for hardware specifications.

  • In this matrix x64 indicates:

    • Advanced Micro Devices AMD64

    • Intel EM64T 64-bit processors. IA-64 indicates Intel Architecture-64

    • Itanium and Itanium 2 processors which are not yet supported.

  • XOsoft Replication (DR), XOsoft High Availability (HA) Data Rewind (true CDP) technology embedded at no charge.

  • Blackberry (BES) support is included at no extra charge with XOsoftHA for SQL. Please refer to the XOsoftHA for Blackberry Operations Guide for details.

  • File Server type scenarios can replicate virtually any application or data type, including databases, so long as the OS platform and file system are supported.

  • Applications not listed here may be configured for High Availability with XOsoftHA using custom scripts in combination with the XOsoftHA scripting framework. Please review the XOsoft User Guide for more details.

  • CA XOsoft's High Availability (HA) automated failover product, XOsoftHA, is not supported in an environment where either the master or replica server is also functioning as a Windows Domain Controller (DC), DNS server or SBS (Windows Small Business Server) server. Please note that in this case you would use the standard XOsoft Replication (DR) product instead.

  • CA XOsoft for Exchange is not supported in an SBS (Windows Small Business Server) environment for failover/failback, however replication (DR) and Data Rewind (CDP) for data recovery is fully supported.
