“Last month, Computer Associates, Inc. asked us to review
ARCserveIT v6.61 Advanced Edition for Linux. The initial
installation was not complicated and each function executed as
documented. The Advanced Edition for Linux has many interesting

ARCserveIT requires apache and installs the Java control panel at
(http://localhost/as6) It can be accessed locally or via a network.
This makes ARCserveIT administration easy. ARCserveIT also can be
access and controlled from the command line.”

ARCserveIT remained stable, executed all jobs, and logged all
events. If you are looking for a better Linux backup solution,
ARCserveIT may be what you need.”
