There are plenty of good reasons more and more companies are adopting hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI). First and foremost, HCI lets you consolidate compute, storage, and networking resources into a unified system and manage your resources from a single, unified interface. That simplifies management for your IT team and reduces costs by eliminating unnecessary hardware. No wonder the HCI systems market is projected to grow at a 24.1 percent CAGR between 2021 and 2028.

At the same time, exponential data growth combined with demands to deliver consistently high performance with critical systems adds new challenges to protecting your organization's vital data from ever-growing ransomware threats. There were 304.7 million ransomware attacks in the first half of 2021 alone. So it’s probably a matter of when and not if you’ll face an attack. What you need is a different approach to storing, managing, and reducing complexity and TCO.

Scale-Out Design Combines Simplicity and Performance

Arcserve has taken that different approach with Arcserve N Series Appliances. This hyperconverged data protection solution, powered by Nutanix and secured by Sophos, securely protects any type and number of workloads, so they are safe from disasters, accidents, and cyberattacks—like ransomware.

N Series Appliances let you do more, faster, with flexible Nutanix HCI software. That makes it easier to keep pace as your business evolves, replacing your complex legacy infrastructure with new capabilities that let you deploy resources in an hour or two and provision applications the same day to meet business needs. With a focus on apps, you get fast performance and the ability to support all application types. And, with one-click simplicity, IT operations are streamlined into a single solution that IT generalists can manage. Plus, it's easy to scale without limit as demands grow.

Market-Leading Cybersecurity

Fully integrated with market-leading Sophos cybersecurity protection, Arcserve N Series Appliances combine signature-based and signatureless malware detection, a deep learning neural network, anti-exploit technology, CryptoGuard anti-ransomware, and WipeGuard technologies to stop the broadest range of endpoint threats—including never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks. Sophos Intercept X Advanced tightens and simplifies security with anti-ransomware file protection, automatic file recovery, behavioral analysis, threat detection and response, and centralized management.

Universal Data Protection

Arcserve N Series Appliances include Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) software, a simple to use, all-in-one data protection solution to neutralize ransomware attacks, restore data, and perform effective disaster recovery (DR). Arcserve UPD gives you instant virtual machine (VM) and bare-metal restore (BMR), local and remote virtual standby, application-consistent backup and granular restore, and optional high availability. That means you can eliminate discrete data protection and security strategies without worrying about capacity limitations.

Back Up and Protect Every Workload

Now you can secure multiple legacy and modern workloads with the Arcserve N Series. Those include agentless host-based protection for Nutanix AHV, vSphere, and Hyper-V. You can also add new data loss protection capabilities with deduplicated backup for AHV, Nutanix files, and quick disaster recovery with automatic failover. Most important, you can be confident in your ability to restore your data with automated recovery testing—powered by Assured Recovery—with recovery point objective (RTO), recovery time objective (RTO), and service-level agreement (SLA) validations. And you can count on on-site support in as little as four hours, with highly redundant hardware, including hot-swap power supplies.
