Vizioncore Adds FlashRestore to vRangerPro
Vizioncore's FlashRestore technology makes virtual machine backup images immediately available by booting them directly from the vRanger Pro repository.Virtualization data protection and management solutions specialist and Quest Software subsidiary Vizioncore announced that FlashRestore technology would be available later this year as an add-on to its back-up and restore product, vRanger Pro. FlashRestore technology handles image-based recovery by making Virtual Machine (VM) back-up images available by booting them directly from the vRanger Pro backup repository. Recovery of entire VM images often wastes time because the entire Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) file must be copied from the backup repository to the hypervisor system over the network and depending on the size of the file and network traffic, the recovery process can take hours to complete.
"In-place recovery technology, the ability to resume operations while data is being copied back to the primary storage location, is the next critical need in the virtualized data center," saidGeorge Crump, lead analyst for Storage Switzerland. "Image- based backups have simplified the data protection process - and now dramatically simplify the recovery process by eliminating the time required to restore the VM across the network. The ability to resume operations from the protected copy while the original VMDK file is being restored can eliminate RTO windows, providing the ultimate payoff for investments in Backup 2.0."
