About Quest DR Series systems

The Quest DR Series disk-based data protection appliances optimize utilization with in-line deduplication and compression, and reduce network bandwidth requirements with client-side deduplication processing and deduplicated replication.

These appliances incorporate innovative deduplication and compression technology to help you achieve a data-reduction level up to 15:1. As a result, you can retain more backup data for a longer period in the same footprint.

The Quest DR Series systems use the Plug-in for Rapid Data Access (RDA) to integrate its data storage operations with NetVault Backup. This plug-in is automatically installed on the NetVault Backup machines when you install the NetVault Backup Server or Client software.

For more information about Quest DR Series systems, see the Quest DR Series system Administration Guide.

Quest DR Series system prerequisites

Before adding a Quest DR Series system to a NetVault Backup Server, verify that the following requirements are met:

Configure the required storage options: On the Quest DR Series system, configure the storage options for the container. For more information about the storage options, see the Quest DR Series system Administration Guide.
Configure ports for optimized replication: To perform optimized replication operations across a firewall, configure the following fixed TCP ports on the Quest DR Series system to support RDA replication operations:
