  • A more efficient, more flexible vRangerNew technology from VZ as well as support for a series of VMW APIsChanged block tracking support: Leverages functionality in vSphere which allows 3rd party vendors to no longer scan for changes when performing incremental’s or differentials backups. Shortens backup window.Active Block Mapping: will ID exactly what sections of a VM to backup and what sections not to backup, based on the presence of deleted data. VC patent-pending. Shortens window, reduces storage needCustom Backup Groups: This allows administrators to create backup jobs on select VM’s with out need to reorganize how Virtual center is setup.
  • VMware itself has established policies and recommendations for properly aligning VM storage – believe them, not usThe VMware web site has several documents addressing this issueNo automated procedure currently exists to easily and safely realign VMs and their storageExisting alignment procedures are time-consuming and error-prone
  • read/write location is required such that RME will need to access the DB with it’s MS jet engine, to read the log files associated with the DB. The replaying of the logfiles is controled by a header in the DB
