CA Adds Multi-Stream Replication to ARCserve
CA has upgraded its ARCserve Replication and ARCserve High Availability software to include, among other things, allow for Multi-Stream Replication, which the company claims can double performance, sister site InfoStor reports.
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced four enhancements to two products that fall under the general CA ARCserve umbrella: ARCserve Replication and ARCserve High Availability.
A Multi-Stream Replication feature is designed primarily for users replicating large data sets over high-latency WANs, possibly eliminating the need for an expensive high-bandwidth, low-latency WAN link. Multi-Stream Replication enables up to ten different streams simultaneously.
The speed improvement gained from Multi-Stream Replication depends on a number of factors including WAN bandwidth, the application, amount of data, etc. but Bennett Klein, CA Technologies senior director of product marketing, says that users can expect at least a 2X performance improvement.
