Replication Target available in Azure Government Marketplace

Beginning with release 6.1.2, Rapid Recovery Replication Target is available to users of the Azure Government cloud computing platform. Azure Government users who have an on-premises installation of Rapid Recovery Core can now select the "Rapid Recovery Replication Target" from the Azure Government marketplace. Using this VM, Azure compute services, and storage that you add to the VM for your repository, users can quickly and easily set up a target Core that replicates your on-premises backup data in the Azure Government cloud. This lets you take advantage of the simplicity, security, and redundancy offered by Microsoft's cloud computing platform.

This is the identical product available to public users of the Azure platform.

The VM uses a fully patched Windows Server 2016 OS and comes with simple-to-use scripts that set up your VM in minutes. For information about replicating to Azure, see the Rapid Recovery Replication Target for Microsoft Azure Setup Guide.

Support for archiving to AWS GovCloud US and other S3-compatible cloud accounts

Amazon Web Services offers a service called AWS GovCloud (US). This is an isolated AWS region designed to meet specific regulatory and compliance requirements, thus letting United States government agencies and customers join private businesses in leveraging cloud accounts.

Beginning with release 6.1.2, Rapid Recovery fully supports archive of recovery points to Simple Storage Service (S3) cloud accounts on AWS GovCloud. Quest also provides limited support for other S3-compatible cloud storage accounts for archiving.

When defining cloud accounts in the Rapid Recovery Core Console, for Cloud type, select Amazon S3, and enter a fully qualified URL into the Service endpoint field to define and cache your account credentials.

DocRetriever for SharePoint enhancements

DocRetriever for SharePoint is a separately installed component that accompanies Rapid Recovery Core. If you protect one or more SharePoint front end web servers in your Core, DocRetriever provides additional recovery options. Using the DocRetriever Console, DocRetriever for SharePoint lets SharePoint administrators recover SharePoint objects from the site collection level down to the component level.

The following enhancements have been added to DocRetriever release 6.2.

Restore job history. You can view the history of previous restores performed of SharePoint data using DocRetriever Console. Once you select a restore job in the "Jobs list" tab, you can drill down to its details in the "Job restore actions" and "Job restore parameters" tabs. This previously existing feature is now documented in the DocRetriever for SharePoint User Guide.
Restore improvements. DR Console now has the ability to display and restore system items, including web part templates, site themes, master pages, views, forms, list items, and files in the DR "Associated Files" folder that are not associated with a list. Also, more properties for a SharePoint object can now be restored—for example, a site's welcome page link.
Additional metadata. The DR Console offers the ability to display more properties. For example, in Settings, you can control display of system items. If set to display, then from the tree view or the list, when viewing attributes, you can see if an item is a system item. The same function is available for hidden items when they are set to display. Title bars for the DocRetriever Console now display additional information such as the SQL database instance being used. The status bar at the bottom of the DR console now shows item counts or other attributes of selected items, and the SharePoint version being used.
Updated settings. Restore settings for the DocRetriever Console have been moved from the Settings dialog box to the Windows registry. Restore settings (such as duplicate actions, container actions, object types to be included in the restore, and restore direction) from any restore are now cached to be the default settings for the subsequent restore. For any restore of SharePoint data, the default settings can be customized to serve your needs. Other settings are also stored in the Windows registry, such as SQL Server settings that include command timeouts (in seconds), and recent recovery sources.
Code optimizations. Code optimizations improve performance, letting some restore operations occur concurrently. Error handling has also been improved.

For more information about this component, see the DocRetriever for SharePoint User Guide.
