Application support for agentless protection

With this release, Rapid Recovery introduces the ability to protect and restore Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server data agentlessly. Agentless protection applies to VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines installed on Windows operating systems.

To protect a VM agentlessly, Rapid Recovery performs the following actions:

Encrypting data in transport over a network

Rapid Recovery Core release 6.2 includes a new encryption feature: you can now encrypt all data in transport over a network. Quest recommends enabling this encryption setting when data between your Core and protected machines (or between two Cores such as for replication) must flow over the public or untrusted networks such as the internet.

The option is enabled by default when protecting a machine. While there is only a small performance cost involved in enabling this encryption, if your Cores and protected machines are within the confines of a private local area network, you can disable this option with confidence.

Network resiliency improvements

When network communication is lost briefly, queued or in-process Core jobs previously failed. Resiliency improvements in Rapid Recovery Core release 6.2 include re-try logic that adds resiliency to network operations. Backups, VM exports, and other jobs that cannot execute due to small temporary network outages are now re-tried for a five-minute period. If the network is available in that period, the operation commences, creating only a slight delay instead of a job failure and skipped operation.

Restoring Exchange mail items from the Rapid Recovery Core Console

Rapid Recovery now lets you recover Microsoft Exchange mail items, such as emails, calendar appointments, and contacts, directly from the Rapid Recovery Core Console. When an Exchange server is backed up in a recovery point, you no longer need to use a second application to retrieve its contents.

To begin an Exchange recovery, you must first open the location of the Exchange items using the Open Exchange Database wizard on the Mail Restore page, which is accessible from the More menu of the Core Console. The wizard lets you select the recovery point that contains the backup of the Exchange server.

After the database is open and connected to Rapid Recovery, you can go to the Mail Restore page of the Core Console, select the item that you want to recover, and then open the Email Restore Wizard. This wizard lets you select a destination for the recovered item, such as a recovery folder, the original location, or a PST file. From there, you can also select advanced options, including the ability to restore deleted items from Exchange 2007 (deprecated), 2010, 2013, and 2016 databases.

The new Mail Restore feature in Rapid Recovery is in addition to the mail restore capabilities of Mailbox Restore for Exchange.
