- With the latest enhancements in vRanger 5.4, Data Domain Boost can distribute parts of the deduplication process to the vRanger server. As a result, vRanger streams only unique data to the Data Domain system, thus reducing backup times by up to 40 percent, according to internal tests.
- The new release also delivers a host of enhancements designed to provide a more seamless out-of-the-box experience for vRanger customers, including centralized, wizard-driven Virtual Appliance (VA) deployment for faster time-to-value; wizard-driven VSS tools configuration for automation of repetitive tasks; and cluster support from a single VA for greater ease of use.
In addition, customers can now achieve increased scalability by
executing backup and restores directly from the vRanger VA.
- Users can back up, restore, and replicate virtual machine data directly through the vRanger VA; perform Linux File Level Recovery (FLR); and centrally control VAs and backup jobs directly from the vRanger server.

“Quest vRanger integration with Data Domain Boost software extends the optimization capabilities of Data Domain to virtualized SMB environments. Data Domain Boost software greatly reduces the amount of data backed up, the amount of backup data transferred over the network and the amount of backup storage space required. This significantly increases backup speeds to help our joint customers meet shrinking backup windows."
