March Madness Begins Early: Quest Introduces NetVault Backup Edition for SMBs

Although the NCAA tournament is still two weeks away, we're fired up here at Quest! Today we introduced NetVault Backup – Capacity Edition for SMBs. This package provides true cross-platform protection for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, as well as VMware and Hyper-V, and delivers a host of plug-ins that ensure the availability of business-critical databases and applications such as Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint and MySQL.


With a per-terabyte pricing model that matches the way most companies view backup and recovery, NetVault Backup – Capacity Edition enables SMBs to deploy additional clients, plug-ins, and options at no additional charge. This perpetual licensing model also gives SMBs the flexibility to adapt their data protection strategies to the needs of their growing IT environments, and delivers the budget predictability that’s paramount in smaller organizations.


NetVault Backup has always been a good fit for SMBs since it offers easy installation, configuration, and day-to-day management. In most cases, NetVault Backup can be installed, configured and running in as a little as 45 minutes, and its simple user interface can be mastered quickly.


The new edition (at a new price point!) lowers the hurdle for SMBs to get enterprise-grade backup and recovery. NetVault Backup – Capacity Edition is available starting at $2,700 for each front-end terabyte of data, which includes one year of standard support and maintenance. Customers can add deduplication through NetVault SmartDisk for an additional $250 per front-end terabyte.
