CA's Infinite Incremental (I2) technology frequently backs up computing functions with minimal impacts to storage, processing power and network bandwidth, CA says in a press release.

Meanwhile, customers buying the product also get 25G of Microsoft Azure cloud-based backup per machine. The service, which CA said is aimed at small and midsize businesses, is priced on a monthly or annual subscription rate.

CA and Microsoft have a history of working together, as CA has been named a Microsoft certified gold partner.
