Vizioncore vRanger Pro DPP 4.1
The Silver Award in the Backup and Storage category goes to Vizioncore Inc.'s vRanger Pro DPP 4.1. Vizioncore offers a rock-solid product that integrates with change-block tracking on VMware vSphere as well as other innovative improvements.VRanger Pro contains a backup engine that shortens backup windows and minimizes system resource utilization. Using proprietary techniques, vRanger Pro minimizes the amount of data transmitted during virtual machine backup and recovery operations. The technology also provides LAN-free (or fiber) backups that significantly reduce network traffic and offers administrators a variety of recovery options to achieve recovery-time-objectives and the appropriate level of recovery granularity. Key features of vRanger Pro DPP 4.1 include the following:
- an automated process of reinstalling OS, configuration files, applications, and recovery agents to restore operation more quickly.;
- multiple, simultaneous backups using all available ESX host server resources. Administrators can set resource consumption limits to prevent performance degradation to virtual infrastructure; and
- the ability to identify and eliminate empty and/or deleted space from backups.
