Arcserve welcomes the Zetta community

by Mike Crest

Today marks an important day as we welcome Zetta into the Arcserve family. Looking ahead, I am confident of the exponential value today’s news will bring to our customers, channel partners and staff.

When Arcserve looked for a way to add new talent and cloud capabilities to our flagship Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) portfolio, we saw Zetta as a match for our business requirements. We also found a company committed to customer success with an innovative culture that echoes that of Arcserve.

We are bullish about the success Arcserve and Zetta will have as one company, and are delighted to hear that the industry shares our enthusiasm about today’s announcement with Jason Buffington, principal at ESG, stating:

Organizations of all sizes are looking to cloud technologies as part of their IT acceleration strategies; especially with regard to backup and BC/DR. Arcserve is making the right strategic move at a critical juncture in this market. The addition of Zetta is clearly a good fit for mid-market customer needs today. Zetta’s leading cloud technologies, combined with Arcserve’s rich data protection solutions, provide a compelling breadth of capabilities that demonstrates Arcserve’s continued evolution and reinvention in this market.”

 

A Single Company to Better Serve our Customer and Partners

Its cliché, but in the case of today’s acquisition, it's true. As Arcserve and Zetta merge, it is our customers and partners who benefit from more than we previously offered independently. A truly 1+1=3 experience.

As a combined entity, Arcserve now offers our customers and partners:

  • A comprehensive cloud offering including direct-to-cloud and hybrid solutions
  • Expanded data center infrastructure and IP expertise
  • Global distribution through 7,500 channel partners

Today’s acquisition is the right step for our companies and stakeholders. It allows Arcserve to bring a revolutionary choice in data protection to midmarket companies and the opportunity for our combined staff to innovate like never before.

All of us at Arcserve wish to welcome the Zetta team and look forward to serving our partners and customers together.
