vRanger provides backup, recovery, and backup management for virtual and physical environments. Featuring a new platform technology, vRanger reduces the backup window, provides smarter backup options, and offers more scalability features while using fewer resources.
Protect entire VMware® and Hyper-V® environments in minutes: Deploy vRanger’s simple installation wizard and auto-discovery tool to locate both VMware and Hyper-V assets, and safeguard entire virtual environments in minutes. Leverage vRanger’s agentless architecture to reduce time spent managing virtual backup, restore and recovery operations, and to detect and back up new VMs automatically for complete protection.
Deliver high-speed, storage-thrifty backup and restore for VMware, Hyper-V, and physical Windows® servers: Employ the fastest I/O path available to back up and restore VMware, Hyper-V, and physical Windows servers quickly, with minimal disruption to production systems. vRanger’s patented Active Block Mapping feature reduces data streams, network utilization and backup storage requirements. Leverage client-side and target-side deduplication options with the support for the Quest DR disk-based backup appliance and EMC™ Data Domain integration to dramatically shrink backup storage costs.
Quickly locate and restore individual files from virtual and physical backups: Locate and restore specific versions of VMs, files, and folders in minutes. Use vRanger’s integrated catalog and wildcard search features to find individual files quickly, whether they are located within VMware, Hyper-V, or physical Windows Server backups. Manage virtual and physical servers from a single, easy-to-use user interface (UI), minimizing the effort, complexity and cost of backing up your data.
Replicate key VMs for offsite disaster recovery preparedness: Replicate VMware virtual machines both on-site and at remote locations for flexible and efficient disaster recovery preparedness. Combine backup and replication jobs to ensure that you meet your organization’s recovery time and recovery point objectives. Perform fast VM failover and recovery at all your sites, no matter where they are located.
Deploy scalable data protection for even the largest virtual infrastructures: Leverage parallel job execution capabilities to complete backup and recovery operations faster, and use resource governing to ensure optimal production application performance. Deploy the vRanger virtual appliance (VA) to distribute VMware workloads for better scalability. Use vRanger’s LAN-free mode to move backup and restore operations off local-area networks (LANs) for improved virtualized application performance.
Use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-256: vRanger uses AES-256 encryption to encrypt backup archives and replication traffic. In vRanger, AES is a symmetric key algorithm that uses a 256-bit encryption key. This combination is approved for the encryption of secure government data, and complies with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS).
