CA Technologies this week entered into a partnership with Microsoft to offer cloud backup. The agreement will allow CA ARCserve to back up data to Microsoft's Azure subscription-based online storage service.
CA is following several rivals offering cloud backup through partnerships with Microsoft or other cloud backup services. CommVault Inc. added cloud access to its Simpana data backup software more than a year ago, and last week Symantec announced a cloud option for Backup Exec.
CA's cloud service is aimed at small- to medium-sized business (SMB) customers who want to use local and off-site backups for hybrid cloud backup, according to Eric Harless, director of product management for CA's data management business.
