About Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery 6.1.1

About Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery 6.1.1

Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery software delivers fast backups with verified recovery for your VMs and physical servers, on-premises or remote. DellRapid Recovery is software built for IT professionals who need a powerful, affordable, and easy-to-use backup, replication, and recovery solution that provides protection for servers and business-critical applications like Microsoft® SQL Server®, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SharePoint®. Using Rapid Recovery, you can continuously back up and protect all your critical data and applications from a single web-based management console.

Rapid Recovery release 6.1.1 is a minor release that includes enhancements and defect fixes (described in Resolved issues). For information on the new features, enhanced functionality, or changes for other components that were introduced in release 6.1, see Rapid Recovery 6.1 Release Notes.

Previously named AppAssure, Rapid Recovery has been rebranded in release 6 to reflect the next step in its evolution. The new name applies to Rapid Recovery Core, as well as the Rapid Recovery Agent software you can install on machines to protect their data.

Some other components were rebranded for consistency. For more information on rebranding, see the Enhancements topic in Rapid Recovery 6.0.1 Release Notes.

Repository upgrade advisory

Upgrading the Core software to release 6.1.x from any earlier version (for example, Rapid Recovery 6.0x, AppAssure 5.x) changes the schema in your repository. The updates let you use new features in the latest release, including the ability to protect guests on a Microsoft Hyper-V host without installing Rapid Recovery Agent on each guest.

Anytime you change the structure of your repository through an upgrade, you cannot downgrade the version of Core. Should you determine in the future that you want to use an earlier version of Core after upgrade to this release, you will need to archive the data in your repository. You could then re-import the information manually, which can be a substantial effort.

System requirements documentation advisory

For each software release, we review and update the system requirements for Rapid Recovery software and components. If using localized versions of product documentation, always refer to the release notes for the most current system requirements. Release notes are sometimes updated and re-issued in a release cycle.
