Next-Generation Platform Redefines Data Protection by Enabling IT to Manage Backups Based on Specific Business and Technology Services
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSFT) The role of backup and recovery has changed. In addition to ensuring organizations have at least one good copy of their data, IT must now make sure mission-critical applications and databases can be restored in accordance with service level agreements (SLAs). Problematically, traditional data protection software focuses on servers and infrastructure, with no visibility into whether SLAs can be achieved. Building on its 25-year heritage as an industry leader in the management of mission-critical applications and databases, Quest Software is redefining backup and recovery with the industry’s first services-centric data protection solution.
Security across the enterprise: An intelligent and adaptive policy engine that enforces specific data protection controls and requirements.
SLA validation: Built-in validation of a given protection plan through alerts that proactively let users know whether or not an SLA is achievable based on the established backup and recovery parameters.
Unified management of on-premise and cloud assets: The ability to act as a gateway to multi-vendor clouds, thus enabling users to manage both on-premise and cloud assets from a single interface.
Role-based reporting capabilities: Role-based reporting capabilities that empower users to develop reports that map directly to the specific SLAs they are responsible for maintaining, to better demonstrate the impact and value of backup and recovery to the entire business.
Anytime, anywhere access: Remote, cloud-based operating capabilities, giving users anytime, anywhere access, including the ability to manage and control backup and recovery operations directly from their iPads.
