Vizioncore Offers Data Protection Pack
Virtualization data protection and management solutions company Vizioncore, a subsidiary of Quest Software, announced the availability of SMB Data Protection Pack, a new sales offering aimed at small to medium-size businesses that have adopted, or are considering, VMware vSphere Essentials.
The SMB Data Protection Pack provides SMB customers with solutions such as data protection, high availability and offsite replication that will extend, enhance and complement the entry-level, all-in-one VMware vSphere Essentials offering. The company said the new pack is specifically targeted at smaller deployments and includes licenses for six CPUs, equivalent to the VMware vSphere Essentials license.
The SMB Data Protection Pack is available in two bundles.
The primary bundle includes Vizioncore vRanger Pro for data protection and
Vizioncore vControl for high availability, while the comprehensive edition,
Vizioncore SMB Data Protection Pack with Replication, offers vRanger Pro and
vControl, but also adds the additional protection and security of Vizioncore
vReplicator for offsite disaster recovery replications. Both bundles are
exclusively designed to be implemented with a single deployment of VMware
"Procuring good technology for an SMB can often mean paying
for solutions that may never be fully utilized," said Vizioncone's vice
president of products Tyler Jewell. "However, when teamed with VMware vSphere
Essentials, Vizioncore's new SMB Data Protection Pack provides a truly
pragmatic and unique set of solutions that directly results in easier
management and greater protection of IT systems and, ultimately, richer ROI
from virtualization initiatives."
Bas Ter Heurne, sales manager for PQR, a specialist for professional ICT infrastructures, focusing on storage, virtualization and application delivery solutions, said the new solution pack from is a great way for small businesses to build their virtual infrastructures by obtaining needed management functionality in a cost-effective way.
"VMware vSphere is undoubtedly a great step forward in the
world of technology development and there have been many improvements over the
last version. However, the SMB Data Protection Pack from Vizioncore offers SMBs
sophisticated enterprise-level features and functions in products that are both
easy to master and affordable," he said. "Any business now can really leverage
their investments in virtualization for major gains in productivity and
flexibility, as well as strategic benefits in such areas as data protection."
In June, Vizioncore announced updates to two of its key products, vOptimizer Pro 2.2, the company's storage and VM optimization tool, and vFoglight 5.2.6, an updated version of their performance monitoring solution. With vFoglight, administrators can view their infrastructure through detailed architectural representations and use out-of-the-box alerts and advice to detect, diagnose and resolve problems affecting performance and availability, while vOptimizer gives SMBs the ability to scan their organization's VMware vCenter Server and ESX Hosts in order to determine the amount of over-allocated virtual storage that exists unnoticed.
