Data Protection

With innovative image-based data protection, Quest provides backup and disaster recovery that is simple, fast, and resource-efficient. Protect virtual or physical images once and recover any file, object, or system.

  • vRanger Standard
    vRanger Standard offers innovative, easy-to-manage technology to efficiently protect your VMware systems, while minimising the impact on the network and storage requirements. It's built on Quest's unique Data Protection Platform – an unparalleled architecture optimised for image-based data handling in virtual environments.
  • vRanger Pro
    vRanger Pro offers image-based backup, recovery and replication with capabilities to simplify management, improve performance, and allow for scalability in virtual environments. Customers can back up the VM — and all of its data — in a single pass as well as recover any individual file, Exchange e-mail object, or the entire VMDK from the same backup image. This helps them to reduce backup costs, complexity and administrative burdens. They're empowered to complete data protection jobs, in virtual environments of any size.
  • vRanger Pro – Replication Only
    Quest vRanger Pro – Replication Only (formerly vReplicator) creates identical replicas of VM images across local and wide-area networks (LANs and WANs) and provides simple, fast disaster recovery of VMs. It also centralises VM images from remote sites for easier data protection access.
  • vConverter
    vConverter 5.0 offers fast, simple and flexible conversion of physical systems into virtual images, conversion of virtual images among virtual server platforms, and conversion of virtual images into physical systems. These capabilities used on their own or in combination with other image-based data protection capabilities, like those offered with vRanger Pro™ and vReplicator™, can transform data protection for physical systems for use in virtual environments. vConverter 5.0 is a standard, for-pay product offered with full support. It provides continuous protection of physical systems by keeping them synchronised with virtual machine images on an ongoing basis, after the first full conversion. It further provides V2P conversion of VM images into physical systems, even on bare-metal systems with no OS present. This P2V2P capability greatly enhances the options for using virtual environment infrastructure for the purpose of protecting physical systems. This version supports P2V on Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX systems, as well as V2V capabilities for moving VMs between those hypervisor platforms.

Monitoring
Quest offers visibility and insight to resolve performance issues, ensure availability, meet service levels, track resource use for chargeback, and ease capacity planning.

  • vFoglight Storage
    Quest vFoglight Storage monitors virtual environments to provide performance and capacity metrics. It can help customers better manage their underlying physical storage for amazing virtual infrastructure performance. vFoglight Storage also provides the information needed to improve storage paths and efficiently organise physical storage. This ensures customers will meet service level agreements, keep users happy, and retain cost savings they've achieved from virtualisation.
  • Management Pack for VMware
    The Quest Management Pack for VMware extends Microsoft System Centre Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor VMware virtual infrastructures. With this solution, organisations can support their objectives for centralised monitoring of the IT infrastructure without compromising their ability to detect, diagnose and resolve problems affecting the performance and availability of the virtual infrastructure. The Quest Management Pack for VMware allows administrators to work in their familiar System Centre Operations Manager views through a simple, low cost, and easy to use solution.

Administration
Quest securely automates virtual machine provisioning, complex tasks and storage optimisation to save time and cut infrastructure costs.

  • vOptimizer Pro
    vOptimizer Pro is the only solution available today that can quickly locate and reclaim over-allocated VM storage and dramatically reduce unnecessary storage acquisition costs. By using vOptimizer Pro to "right size" VM storage, VMware customers can utilise their existing virtual storage resources far more efficiently and cost effectively. vOptimizer Pro also significantly improves VM performance by performing 64K partition alignments, reduces overall time spent monitoring and managing virtual storage, and eliminates risks caused by poor virtual storage management practices.

Bundles
Quest securely automates virtual machine provisioning, complex tasks and storage optimisation to save time and cut infrastructure costs.

  • vEssentials
