Management software behemoth Computer Associates and hardware vendor NEC have announced an OEM agreement to take to market customised hardware and software solutions for the backup, restoration, archiving and protection of critical data. The new solution is targeted at small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Windows Small Business Server, Linux and Netware server environments. The new solution is available now across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) from NEC Computers International’s channel network of partners and resellers. “NEC is continuing with the strategy of offering fully integrated and supported solutions for SMBs. Our partnership with CA, a leader in the storage market, not only meets this goal, but also enables us to offer our customers all-in-one customized solutions at very attractive prices,” said Denis Bellicam, director of enterprise computing at NEC Computers International. “Satisfying the specific IT needs of SMBs is a key focus area for CA in EMEA,” said Tim Goodwin, CA’s OEM Sales Manager for EMEA. “By working with OEM partners like NEC whose European manufacturing infrastructure offers great flexibility, we continually reinforce our promise of providing SMBs with solutions to simplify the protection of their IT environments so they can focus on their core business.” CA and NEC now claim to offer a complete solution for customers, combining world-class hardware and software, which the vendors believe provides SMBs with leading-edge data protection that is customised, validated and supported by NEC. Customers can build a bespoke backup server solution combining NEC Express5800 servers; tape backup devices and operating systems alongside CA’s BrightStor ARCserve Backup r11.5 software. NEC will provide ongoing support for BrightStor ARCserve Backup and all other products included in the solution.
