  Quest Enhances vRanger to Include Support for EMC Data Domain Boost Software  Business Wire  ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- May 23, 2012  Quest Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSFT):  Tweet this: Latest version of @Quest vRanger includes support for EMC Data Domain Boost software  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.  Supporting Quotes:  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."
