Quest Software, a global systems management, data protection and security software provider, today announced its participation in the VeeamⓇ Alliance Partner Program. Additionally, Quest QoreStor, the company’s software-defined secondary storage platform with enterprise-class deduplication technology, has been verified as a Veeam Ready Repository. Using QoreStor, organizations can accelerate their Veeam backups by more than 300 percent, reduce backup storage requirements by more than 95 percent, and help customers more efficiently and safely leverage the cloud.
Most IT teams today are working with limited budgets while trying to keep up with the fast pace at which data is growing and the need to back up that information. Now with QoreStor, IT teams using Veeam Backup & Replication can speed up backups through protocol accelerators and significantly reduce storage through content-aware, variable block deduplication and compression. Companies can also shorten replication time and overcome inconsistent WAN connections, while leveraging the cloud for disaster recovery and archiving, through its resilient replication technology.
“With today’s growth in data, it is critically important to ensure all data is safely stored and backed up to not only meet regulatory requirements, but to ensure business continuity,” said Mark D’Apice, Executive Director of R&D and Product Management, Quest Data Protection. “With QoreStor, IT organizations can lower data protection costs and maximize ROI by leveraging practically any storage hardware, backup software, virtualization platform and cloud provider. Now verified for Veeam, it perfectly complements any Veeam environment and helps IT teams complete backups faster, reduce storage costs and replicate to the cloud in a quick and safe manner.”
As a software-defined secondary storage platform, QoreStor is simple to deploy and easy to manage, enabling organizations to shrink replication time, improve data security and address compliance requirements. QoreStor Rapid Data Access (RDA) drivers, installable on Veeam backup servers and Veeam backup proxies, features support for Windows and Linux that enable source side deduplication, encryption and WAN resiliency. A part of the all-inclusive QoreStor license, RDA is critical to a high performing Veeam QoreStor Repository implementation.
