CA acquires data recovery vendor XOsoft

CA acquires XOsoft, a data recovery and replication software vendor.

CA has pumped up its storage management product line by acquiring XOsoft Inc., which sells data replication and recovery software, CA announced Tuesday.

XOsoft's products are designed to provide uninterrupted access to file and application servers -- including Windows servers, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL and Oracle -- and allow recovery after disasters. CA plans to integrate XOsoft's products with its BrightStor ARCserve Backup product, it said in a press release.

CA did not disclose terms of the transaction, which follows its June acquisition of MDY Group International, a provider of records management software and services.

XOsoft serves more than 1,600 customers in 42 countries, according to CA. The company was founded in 1999 and is located in Waltham, Massachusetts.

The acquisition will help CA offer customers a multilayered approach to IT system backup and recovery, including traditional backup, offsite vaulting and disaster recovery, the company said.

CA intends to market and support XOsoft's products through its direct sales group and authorized XOsoft and CA partners.

CA's BrightStor ARCserve Backup provides customers with a variety of storage options, including encryption, integrated antivirus protection, media management and snapshot backup and recovery capabilities. XOsoft complements these capabilities by adding continuous protection and quick recovery, significantly reducing backup workloads, CA said.
