Virtualization Backup and recovery

VizionCore : 08 July, 2009  (New Product)
VRanger Pro data protection platform from Vizioncore incorporates virtualized backup to meet increasingly demanding market needs
Vizioncore has announced the general availability of vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP (Data Protection Platform), the market leading virtualization backup and recovery solution. vRanger 4.0 DPP has been entirely re-designed into a Data Protection Platform to offer organizations of all sizes reduced backup windows, additional scalability and flexibility, and smarter backup options to protect their critical data held on virtual machines (VMs).

The Data Protection Platform introduces two major architectural innovations. First, its Direct-To-Target architecture introduces a Plug-N-Play modularity system that enables backup once, recover many capability over multiple protocols and storage targets. vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP performs image-level backups and restores at the file- or image-level and will restore at the object-level in the future. These activities are "direct to target" flowing directly between hosts and targets without the use of a middleware proxy. Second, its Smart Backup Manager introduces an intelligent job engine that enables real-time and parallel management of jobs in a scalable manner.

Customers have been realizing the benefits of vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP since the beta release of the product earlier in 2009. "We've seen appreciable reductions in our backup and restore windows," says Kees van Gerven, System Administrator at Gemeente Noordwijk. "We have been using the vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP beta daily and it's worked flawlessly for us. In addition to the reduced backup window, the most valuable components for us have been File Level Restore and the improved job management, which provides much more control over jobs and data regarding job status."

vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP includes:

• Direct-To-Target architecture
• Flexible backup and restore options - full, incremental or differential
• Instant File Level Restore
• Backup and restore to/from SFTP and CIFS repositories
• Smart Backup Manager to manage multiple simultaneous backups across all ESX hosts
• PowerShell access
• Supports multiple VMware ESX platforms, including vSphere (see separate release, "Vizioncore provides full support for VMware's vSphere 4")
• Full integration with VMware vCenter and vMotion

"We are extremely pleased at the public response to this product, and literally hundreds of our customers participated in the vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP design and testing cycle," said Chris Akerberg, President and Chief Operating Officer, Vizioncore. "This level of community participation validates to us that the market needs the flexibility and advancements we have introduced with the Data Protection Platform. vRanger Pro 4.0 DPP, as well as all products that we offer, will allow administrators everywhere to take full control of their virtual infrastructures for greater levels of efficiency."
