Supporting Quotes: 

Dave Yewchuk, server and storage analyst, Novatel Wireless, vRanger customer since 2009 

“I evaluated a handful of products, but, at the end of the day, when you pulled back the covers, vRanger really stood out. It’s an exceptionally well-thought-out product; stable, fast and versatile. We are a small IT shop and resources are limited, so the best course of action for us, and particularly for me being the one person who looks after six high-level systems, is to be able to set it up and forget it. That’s what I get from vRanger. It’s just so easily managed and administered.”

John Maxwell, vice president, data protection product management, Quest Software

“Organizations deploying virtual infrastructures today face a significant challenge in needing to implement data protection solutions that are purpose-built for virtual environments, speed backup and recovery efforts, and enable administrators to meet demanding recovery time and recovery point objectives. That more than 40,000 customers rely on Quest to meet these challenges is a testament to the stability, reliability and ease of use of our products, and we’re extremely proud to have reached this milestone.”  

Brandon Worrell, director of business development, Solutions II

"Virtualization continues to grow in prevalence, and, as a result, customers are now actively seeking tools that enable them to increase the utilization and efficiency of their virtual environments. Quest continues to remain on the front edge of this trend by delivering solutions such as vRanger, which allows customers to confidently take their virtual infrastructures to the next level knowing their data is protected."
