Quest Software Launches vRanger Update to Enhance VMware Backup, Replication and Recovery


Aliso Viejo, Calif., July 25, 2011


Quest Software, Inc
. today announced the availability of Quest® vRanger® 5.2, the latest addition to the vRanger family of virtual data protection solutions. vRanger 5.2 simplifies and accelerates VMware backup, replication and recovery while significantly reducing storage requirements, and providing the reliability and scalability needed to ensure high-performance data protection as virtual infrastructures grow over time.

News Facts:

  • Key new enhancements to vRanger include full VMware ESX and ESXi support to provide a wide range of backup and recovery capabilities for VMware virtual infrastructure, as well as VMware HotAdd support for faster speeds when making network backups of ESXi.
  • vRanger now also features the ability to run as a low-resource usage virtual appliance when replicating ESXi virtual machine data.
  • In addition to these enhancements, vRanger continues to deliver a host of best-in-class capabilities that enable dramatically increased VM backup, replication and recovery speeds.

o   vRanger’s patent-pending active block mapping technology and support of VMware’s changed block tracking vStorage API significantly reduces the amount of backup traffic and storage requirements.

o  
Parallel job execution capabilities enable vRanger to complete backup and recovery operations in a fraction of the time required by competing products that force single-threaded processing, while dynamic resource governing ensures that those operations don’t impact the performance of other virtualized applications.

o  
Unlike competing products, which require purchase of third-party indexing software to locate VM copies buried within large repositories, vRanger offers an integrated catalog that enables administrators to locate VM and individual file backups fast.

o  
vRanger delivers a hands-free recovery experience, automatically scheduling and executing jobs, and alerting administrators when VMs are ready to use.
