Tweet this: Recover critical #Oracle #data in seconds with the latest edition of @Quest NetVault FastRecover

News Facts:

Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSFT) today announced the availability of NetVault® FastRecover 4.5, which enhances the company’s continuous data protection (CDP) capabilities by enabling instant recovery of critical Oracle data through patented Virtual On-Demand Recovery™ technology.

·         The newest release enables users to take real-time snapshots of an Oracle database and safely store them in a NetVault FastRecover Server. In the event of a corruption or data loss, end users can access the Oracle application data within seconds after a restore is initiated.

o   Using the product’s built-in replication feature, Oracle data can also be sent over a wide area network from one NetVault FastRecover server to another, delivering effective protection for remote and branch offices (ROBOs), and enabling companies to implement a cost-effective disaster recovery strategy.

o   In addition to Oracle, NetVault FastRecover also provides backup and Virtual On-Demand Recovery for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and Windows file-system data.

·         NetVault Fast Recover 4.5 enables customers to integrate CDP technology with their existing backup software. Using CIFS export functionality, users can back up datasets stored on a FastRecover server using almost any data backup software, including Quest’s own NetVault Backup, as well as a host of third-party solutions such as Symantec NetBackup and Backup Exec, CommVault Simpana, and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager.

·         Continuing Quest’s vision to deliver an integrated data protection portfolio, NetVault FastRecover now also integrates with Recovery Manager for Exchange, enabling customers to search for and extract individual mail items from a NetVault FastRecover dataset.

·         Additional enhancements in NetVault FastRecover 4.5 include extended platform support for Windows 7.
