Leading VMware Backup Solution Now Delivers Comprehensive Protection for Virtual and Physical Environments
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSFT)
With virtualization now the norm in the data center, a growing number of organizations are augmenting their legacy physical backup tools with modern technologies purpose-built for the virtual environment. A recent Quest Software survey indicates that 86 percent of organizations use two or more backup products to protect their physical and virtual machines. The same survey, however, indicated that more than half of organizations would ultimately prefer a single solution. Responding directly to customers’ desire to reduce multi-product complexity while still implementing best-of-breed VMware backup, Quest has enhanced vRanger® to deliver complete protection for virtual and physical environments.

Pricing and Availability:
“With vRanger 6.0, customers can finally implement best-of-breed protection for their VMware environments without having to sacrifice the convenience and simplicity of a single-source, single-vendor solution. Unlike legacy physical backup solutions, vRanger was architected specifically for the virtual environment, and unlike niche, virtualization-only backup solutions, it now provides the ability to protect the physical machines organizations have yet to virtualize. We believe this functionality fills a major gap in the backup market, and we’re thrilled to deliver the combined virtual and physical protection that our vRanger customers have made clear they wanted.”
“While vRanger was among the first innovators of virtualization-specific protection, it’s great to see Quest adding physical server protection as well. Customers who wholly embrace virtualization can often face a challenge when their preferred data protection solution is virtualization-only, and are forced to use a second tool to protect their few remaining physical servers. With these new capabilities, vRanger customers will be able to enjoy a single solution for their whole environment. Quest’s new capabilities and future roadmap align well with what ESG is seeing in trends towards unified protection of physical and virtual, among other data protection modernization trends.”
