CA Technologies Announces Competitive Upgrade Program for Data Backup and Recovery

Users of Symantec, CommVault, Veeam, Acronis and Other Data Backup and Recovery Products Can Trade Up Today and Earn Rebates on Select CA ARCserve Products

ISLANDIA, NY, August 13, 2012—CA Technologies today announced a competitive upgrade program for North American users of data backup and recovery software.

From now until Dec. 31, 2012, eligible participants who displace any competitor’s backup or disaster recovery software with an eligible CA ARCserve® competitive upgrade product through a qualified North America reseller/retailer will receive a rebate of up to $700 per license or up to $5,000 per order.

CA ARCserve is a comprehensive hybrid data protection solution that enables customers and service providers to rigorously safeguard the availability of critical data, applications and services across their increasingly diverse mix of virtual, conventional, and cloud resources.  It unifies data management functions through a scalable, modular architecture that also facilitates integration with third-party software such as remote monitoring tools, management platforms, and solutions from service providers.

CA ARCserve recently earned the Network Testing Labs (NTL) “World Class Award” for best data protection and business continuity by significantly outperforming Symantec™ Backup Exec™ 2012 in every category of a recent comparative review that was commissioned by CA Technologies.

"With data volume growing, budgets tight and tolerances for data loss approaching zero, companies of all shapes and sizes are ready to make a change when it comes to how they do backup and recovery," said Steve Fairbanks, vice president, Data Management, CA Technologies.  "With our new competitive upgrade program, CA Technologies is reducing the cost of making this change—allowing customers to substantially improve the performance, scalability, reliability and cost-efficiency of their data protection processes."
