Arcserve is a provider of data protection, replication and recovery software for enterprises and small to medium businesses. Arcserve first emerged in 1990 as Cheyenne Software. Software vendor CA Technologies, then known as Computer Associates, acquired Cheyenne in 1996 and continued to develop and market the Arcserve product under the same brand. In August 2014, Arcserve became an independent company when Marlin Equity Partners acquired the business from CA Technologies. Today, Arcserve provides some of the largest independent software vendor (ISV) developed backup software products in the market, and supports a wide variety of platforms and applications. Arcserve Unified Data Protection is offered as fully integrated software, set-and-forget virtual or physical appliances, and the Arcserve(r) Cloud.
