News Facts:

Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSFT) today announced the availability of
vRanger® 5.4, the latest version of the company’s purpose-built VMware backup,
replication and recovery solution. The newest release enables plug-and-play
integration with EMC’s Data Domain Boost software, improves overall ease of
use by simplifying installation, configuration, and management, and delivers
enhanced scalability.

  *vRanger 5.4 includes support for EMC Data Domain Boost software, meaning
    users can configure their vRanger backup jobs to stream directly to a Data
    Domain system. The new integration delivers significantly faster
    throughput, reduced network traffic, and shortened backup windows for
    vRanger customers backing up to a Data Domain system.

       *With the latest enhancements in vRanger 5.4, Data Domain Boost can
         distribute parts of the deduplication process to the vRanger server.
         As a result, vRanger streams only unique data to the Data Domain
         system, thus reducing backup times by up to 40 percent, according to
         internal tests.

  *The new release also delivers a host of enhancements designed to provide a
    more seamless out-of-the-box experience for vRanger customers, including
    centralized, wizard-driven Virtual Appliance (VA) deployment for faster
    time-to-value; wizard-driven VSS tools configuration for automation of
    repetitive tasks; and cluster support from a single VA for greater ease of
    use.
  *In addition, customers can now achieve increased scalability by executing
    backup and restores directly from the vRanger VA.

       *Users can back up, restore, and replicate virtual machine data
         directly through the vRanger VA; perform Linux File Level Recovery
         (FLR); and centrally control VAs and backup jobs directly from the
         vRanger server.

John Maxwell, Vice President of Product Management, Data Protection, Quest
Software

“In today’s fast-paced business world, SMBs have neither the budget, nor the
bandwidth to spend countless hours managing complicated backup and recovery
products. Instead, they need plug-and-play solutions that deliver a seamless
out-of-box experience and enable them to achieve quick returns on their
technology investments. With vRanger 5.4, Quest is taking its commitment to
providing an easy-to-use virtual data protection solution to another level,
delivering a host of new capabilities designed to simplify life for the VMware
admin, including support for EMC’s popular Data Domain Boost technology.”

Hugues Meyrath, VP BRS Product Management, EMC Corporation

“Quest vRanger integration with Data Domain Boostsoftware extends the
optimization capabilities of Data Domain to virtualized SMB environments. Data
Domain Boostsoftware greatly reduces the amount of data backed up, the amount
of backup data transferred over the network and the amount of backup storage
space required. This significantly increases backup speeds to help our joint
customers meet shrinking backup windows."
