Arkeia Software

Arkeia (pronounced ar-KEY-yuh) delivered the first commercial network backup solution for the Linux market in 1996. The company launched a range of backup appliances in 2007, followed by the introduction of a backup server as a VMware virtual appliance in 2009, becoming the first backup solution to offer all 3 types of backup server deployment. While Arkeia began as a software company selling direct to end-users, the company adopted a one-tier reseller network beginning in 2008. Over 50,000 organizations, spanning over 100 countries, have adopted Arkeia’s backup solutions. Customers select Arkeia backup because it is fast, easy-to-use, and affordable. Arkeia Software acquired Kadena Systems in 2009 to gain that company's algorithms for next-generation Progressive Deduplication™. By 2012, the Arkeia solutions protected all of the major virtual environments and over 200 physical platforms, delivering secure backups to tape, disk, and cloud targets. WD, a Western Digital® company acquired Arkeia Software in December 2012 for a combination of stock and cash. WD merged Arkeia Software into its Branded Products division and targeted SMB markets with small form factor, WD-designed appliances.
