Quest Software, Quantum Team to Offer More Intelligent Data Protection for VMware Environments
Quest Software, Inc. has certified vRanger, its market-leading VMware backup software, on Quantum DXi systems. The use of vRanger with Quantum DXi-Series deduplication appliances significantly enhances backup and recovery performance, while dramatically reducing storage requirements.
  • As VMware virtual server environments grow and budgets shrink, the use of vRanger with Quantum DXi-Series provides customers with a cost-effective and efficient VMware backup solution, enabling them to work smarter to support an ever-growing amount of data for high availability and disaster recovery processes.
  • This tested and validated solution significantly reduces disk storage space needed for backup files by leveraging Quest patented Active Block Mapping with the patented variable-length deduplication included in Quantum DXi systems.
    • vRanger quickly scans block maps to back up only the changed blocks, significantly reducing job windows and the amount of data transferred to a Quantum DXi deduplication appliance.
  • The use of vRanger with Quantum DXi-Series provides scalable, fast backup and recovery processes by combining vRanger’s parallel processing capability with Quantum DXi’s high-speed deduplication.
    • Quantum DXi systems allow vRanger customers to automate backups across multiple sites and devices with significantly less network traffic over the WAN. A backup image is replicated from one DXi system to a target system, over a network connection. Only unique blocks are copied, reducing WAN bandwidth requirements by 90 percent or more.

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

“The growth in VMware virtual environments plus the exploding volume of corporate data – more and more of which is now classified as mission-critical – present a significant challenge to maintaining high availability and disaster recovery processes, especially on reduced budgets. Certifying our market-leading VMware backup software on Quantum DXi systems allows Quest to offer a holistic VMware data protection strategy designed to meet today’s most pressing customer challenges.”

Peter Prinos, senior director, Quantum Global Alliances

“With Quest’s popular data protection software for VMware, and Quantum’s advanced deduplication, this technology combination delivers efficient, cost-effective VMware backup and recovery. The use of Quest vRanger with Quantum DXi helps organizations achieve less costly data protection optimization and efficiency, boosting performance and improving the quality of service.”
