CA ARCserve Backup is a comprehensive, distributed storage solution for applications, databases, distributed servers, and file systems. It provides backup and restore capabilities for databases, business-critical applications, and network clients.

The agent handles all communications between CA ARCserve Backup and Microsoft SQL Server during backup and restore jobs, including preparing, retrieving, and processing the data packets that are sent back and forth between Microsoft SQL Server and CA ARCserve Backup.

You can install CA ARCserve Backup on the same host as the Agent for Microsoft SQL Server for local operation, or on separate systems. A single installation of CA ARCserve Backup can work with agents on many systems, allowing multiple machines to be backed up by a single backup server. CA ARCserve Backup and the agent work together to back up and restore Microsoft SQL Server database objects.

The agent provides services that allow CA ARCserve Backup to back up and restore Microsoft SQL Server databases. The agent must reside on the same server as Microsoft SQL Server, or on a local drive of each node in a Microsoft Cluster Services environment that contains Microsoft SQL Server. In the Cluster, the agent dynamically handles the association between Microsoft SQL Server instances and Virtual Server names, and also recognizes which instances are running on which nodes.

The Agent for Microsoft SQL Server runs within the context of the CA ARCserve Universal Agent Service. This service is shared with other agents, providing a single point of access for backup and restore operations. The service starts automatically after the installation is completed, and dynamically recognizes the addition of new agents as they are installed.
