CA ARCserve Backup allows customers to easily incorporate ATTO's FastStream Virtual Tape appliances into their backup environment. When paired with off-the-shelf disk storage systems, FastStream VT appliances allow customers to add high-performance virtual tape to their existing infrastructure. With FastStream's user-friendly configuration options, users can integrate the virtual tape appliance into an existing environment without the need to change backup software, policies or procedures.

“With the FastStream VT appliance we have been working with leading backup software providers to offer options for our customers who would like to upgrade to a virtual tape solution,” said Tom Kolniak, Director of Products at ATTO Technology. “The FastStream VT gives customers the flexibility to increase the ROI on their traditional tape solutions while enjoying the performance and capacity benefits of a disk-based virtual tape solution.”

“Customers need to improve the performance, scalability and economy of their data protection processes without disrupting their IT operations,” said Frank Jablonski, Director of Product Marketing for Recovery Management at CA. “Our testing validated that CA ARCserve Backup users can easily take advantage of the speed of CA's high-performance backup and ATTO's Virtual Tape appliance to effectively reduce backup windows and reduce data storage costs.”
