Vizioncore Brings Recovery to VMware Infrastructure 3

Quoting GRID Today

Vizioncore Inc. announced the release of esxRanger Professional 2.0, the first software solution on the market that provides enterprise-class robust functionality for image-level and file-level recovery for VMware Infrastructure 3.

In addition to providing hot backups of the entire image of virtual machines, esxRangerProfessional 2.0 features a differential backup engine that identifies and stores only the sections of the virtual machine that have changed from the preceding full backup. Smaller differential files can travel over LANs and WANs faster to remote locations and require less storage space. Administrators can perform backups more frequently and to offsite locations to support disaster recovery.

The esxRanger Professional 2.0 interface can also mount and present the entire disk image or differential disk image of a particular virtual machine, permitting users to select individual files to restore. This file-level recovery function allows companies to decrease or eliminate the need to install agent software on each virtual machine for file-level backups, thus cutting significant cost out of the backup process.

To keep the number of backups from proliferating to unmanageable levels, esxRanger Professional 2.0 also provides an intelligent "Archive Retention Policy" function, which automatically sweeps files on set parameters, removing outdated backups to provide storage for new backups. esxRanger Professional 2.0 offers an expanded interface for a comprehensive, detailed view of backups for greater ease of management. The interface also enables administrators to easily restore multiple virtual machines simultaneously through a single window. As the only full image hot backup and recovery solution on the market today that supports VMware Infrastructure 3, esxRanger Professional 2.0 also supports the full quiescing capabilities delivered with the new platform.

"VI3 offers companies true enterprise-class virtualization to keep their applications up 24/7/365. Any new product that supports VI3 needs to provide the same level robust functionality, and esxRanger Professional 2.0 was designed for the enterprise user," said Azeem Mohamed, senior director of marketing and products at Vizioncore Inc. "esxRanger Professional 2.0 provides solid features that equip companies to put sophisticated backup and recovery strategies in place, and more cost-effectively than ever before."
