Aliso Viejo, CA, United States, 2011/11/02 - Quest Software, Inc. has certified vRanger®, its market-leading VMware backup, replication and recovery software, on HP StoreOnce Backup Systems to deliver a safe, efficient and cost-effective solution for backing up and recovering VMware environments. NASDAQ: QSFT
The combination of vRanger and HP StoreOnce Backup Systems provides VMware customers with high-performance, deduplicated backups and fast, reliable recovery from disk.
• Using vRanger’s comprehensive protection for VMware environments in tandem with HP StoreOnce Backup Systems enables customers to manage ever-increasing volumes of data by optimizing disk space usage and consolidating backups, while ensuring faster restore of critical data for disaster recovery.
• The use of vRanger with HP StoreOnce Backup Systems dramatically reduces the size of backup files by leveraging a host of data-reduction technologies.
o vRanger supports several space-saving mechanisms, including VMware Change Block Tracking, incremental and differential backups, and Quest’s patented active block mapping technology, which quickly scans block maps to back up only the changed blocks with active data.
o These space-saving technologies reduce the size of the backups sent to the StoreOnce Backup System, which further reduces the physical size of the backup with inline deduplication.
• For disaster recovery, the HP StoreOnce Backup System reduces bandwidth requirements for data replication to a remote location. vRanger backups also can be integrated with backup applications that support copying or migrating data from the HP StoreOnce Backup System to tape, delivering an added layer of disaster recovery and archiving capabilities.
John Maxwell, vice president, data protection product management, Quest Software
