New features in CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup r16.5.
- The application supports the following Microsoft Windows 8 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 feature:
Storage Spaces: Storage spaces is a virtualization layout that can group a quantity of physical disks and create virtual disks on top of the physical disks. With this release, CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup does not support application level recovery on Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 systems where storage spaces are enabled, however the entire virtual machine can be recovered.
Note: Creating storage spaces and virtual disks in BMR is not supported.
File system catalog generation is a time consuming task. With this feature you can choose not to generate a catalog file with every backup, and still be able to do a file level restore. This reduces the backup time window.
Microsoft Exchange 2013 Backup/Restore (VSS) is supported.
You can perform BMR from a backup taken on a UEFI machine to a BIOS machine and from a BIOS machine to a UEFI machine.
- vSphere 5.1 is supported.
