Quadric Software Expands Alike to Physical Systems, Enhances Hyper-V Support with Release of v3.5

Quadric Software, a leader in multi-hypervisor backup and disaster recovery solutions, began the new year with the release of Alike v3.5. This significant update strengthens Quadric's position with its growing community of organizations and partners worldwide.

“More of our customers are requiring protection for blended environments from a single, comprehensive solution,” said Phil Baskette, co-founder and CEO of Quadric Software, Inc. “Whether they have a mix of XenServer and Hyper-V within the same organization, or a combination of physical and virtual machines, the solution has to be as powerful as it is flexible. Alike v3.5 delivers through its performance and design simplicity. We work closely with our partners and customers alike to ensure that we meet, and exceed, their expectations.”    

The Alike product line provides organizations of all sizes with a powerful, flexible, and intuitive solution for all their virtual and physical backup and disaster recovery needs. Quadric Software sells the solution direct to end users or through a global network of qualified partners using a simple licensing model based on host or physical machine counts. Alike v3.5 introduces protection for Windows based physical machines, as well as enhanced performance, functionality, and protection of all Hyper-V environments. Over twenty additional changes, and improvements round out the release.

The software’s new P2V support for physical Windows systems was designed to help users incorporate non-virtualized systems into an existing virtual backup or disaster recovery plan through a single, simple solution. It leverages Quadric Software's widely trusted Q-Hybrid technology to deliver the same level of protection it provides virtual environments. Users get the same unrivaled global deduplication the Alike is known for, along with seamless integration with all existing Alike virtual jobs. With its DR edition, users get scheduled, high performance replication from their physical systems to Xen or Hyper-V. For a limited time, Quadric Software is offering physical licenses at a special introductory price.

In addition to the expanded support for physical systems, Quadric Software focused on enhancing Alike’s performance in Hyper-V environments. The solution was simplified to make backup and recovery more intuitive than ever before. Added functionality--such as a complete offering of both their exclusive Q-Hybrid and Enhanced protection technologies--aligns Alike's support of Hyper-V to that of its XenServer platform support. Users also benefit from additional functionality such as: full CSV storage support, as well as support for gen 1 and gen 2 VMs in this newest build.

Alike v3.5 is available now for download directly from Quadric Software’s website. Those interested in previewing Alike v3.5 are welcomed to download a free, 30-day trial.
