Rapid Recovery is a backup, replication, and recovery solution that offers near-zero recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives. Rapid Recovery offers data protection, disaster recovery, data migration and data management. You have the flexibility of performing bare-metal restore (to similar or dissimilar hardware), and you can restore backups to physical or virtual machines (VMs), regardless of origin. Rapid Recovery lets you create backup archives to a wide range of supported systems including archiving to the cloud. With Rapid Recovery, you can replicate to one or more targets for added redundancy and security.

This document describes the system and license requirements for installing the Core and Agent components of Rapid Recovery. It also describes requirements for installing the Quest QorePortal (which replaced the Central Management Console in Rapid Recovery release 6.2).
For running Rapid Recovery, Quest requires a minimum network infrastructure of 1 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) for efficient performance. Quest recommends 10GbE networks for robust environments. 10GbE networks are also recommended when protecting servers featuring large volumes (5TB or higher).
If multiple network interface cards (NICs) are available on the Core machine that support NIC teaming (grouping several physical NICs into a single logical NIC), and if the switches on the network allow it, then using NIC teaming on the Core may provide extra performance. In such cases, teaming up spare network cards that support NIC teaming on any protected machines, when possible, may also increase overall performance.
If the Core uses iSCSI or Network Attached Storage (NAS), Quest recommends using separate NIC cards for storage and network traffic, respectively.
Use network cables with the appropriate rating to obtain the expected bandwidth. Quest recommends testing your network performance regularly and adjusting your hardware accordingly.
These suggestions are based on typical networking needs of a network infrastructure to support all business operations, in addition to the backup, replication, and recovery capabilities Rapid Recovery provides.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is legislation crafted to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU, which makes it relevant to software manufacture in the US and other countries. It updates rules governing the handling of individuals' personal data. GDPR is being widely adopted throughout the software industry.
To comply with the GDPR, the collection of any personally identifiable information (PII) by Rapid Recovery has been carefully considered. Data collection has been streamlined, and the information collected and how it is used is clearly documented.
When installing the Rapid Recovery Core or running the Rapid Recovery Info Gathering Tool, you are provided a description of the information Rapid Recovery collects and our purposes for collecting the information.
Regardless of the privacy option you selected during installation, from the Core General setting Agree to use of personal data, you can change this setting. To switch between phone-home and non-phone-home modes in either direction, you must have access to the appropriate license.
