Arkeia Network Backup: Enterprise Edition for Ubuntu

Arkeia Enterprise Backup Lends More Enterprise Credibility to Ubuntu Server

In one of my older articles, I explained how Ubuntu Server has slowly made significant inroads in many enterprise data centers. Ubuntu has been the favorite distribution of many system administrators, architects and various other IT staff. It was these fans of the Linux distribution that brought Ubuntu into their data centers and slowly deployed Ubuntu into ever increasing roles. I have seen Ubuntu Server deployed in roles from simple kiosks and desktops to full blown web server and database farms. Many senior level managers do not even know that key components of their infrastructures are running on Ubuntu Server.

Most data centers use an enterprise backup platform like Symantec’s NetBackup. These platforms are often very complex and extremely expensive to operate. Without a solid comprehensive backup strategy and platform, however, you place your disaster recovery and business continuity in great risk. For those users of Ubuntu Server who do not wish to incur the expense and complexity of NetBackup and other similar platforms, Arkeia Software has released a free version of their popular enterprise backup server for Ubuntu Server. This strategic move lends Ubuntu more Enterprise Credibility while also giving Arkeia more visibility and market share within the enterprise backup market. Lest you think that this is a watered down version of the product line, Arkeia has spelled out what is available to Ubuntu Server users along with the capabilities of the platform.

From the site:

Arkeia Software provides packages specifically designed for Ubuntu distributions, both 32bit and 64-bit architectures, along with specialized agents for the protection of applications and databases running on Ubuntu, such as Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and LDAP. Ubuntu is also a supported platform for Arkeia Network Backup Disaster Recovery for Linux, which enables bare-metal restores of entire systems.

Arkeia Network Backup: Enterprise Edition for Ubuntu

Arkeia Software provides a fully-licensed, free version of Arkeia Network Backup that is available in the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS software repository. With a few clicks from within the GUI, or just a simple command using the ‘apt-get’ utility, Ubuntu users can quickly deploy a fully-featured backup server. Arkeia Network Backup: Enterprise Edition for Ubuntu offers an advanced network backup solution with the ease-of-use and deployment that Ubuntu users are accustomed to.
