Quest Software, a global provider of systems management, data protection, and security software, has announced the general availability of their new turnkey and tested data protection solution that combines data backup, protection, and management technologies from Lenovo, Veeam and Quest itself.
The data protection solution is comprised of Lenovo ThinkSystem hardware, Veeam Backup software, and Quest QoreStor software. It is intended to make it easier for channel and end-users to adopt and deploy a tested data protection solution across growing cloud and IT environments.
“IT organizations are increasingly looking for comprehensive data protection solutions to support their backup, disaster recovery and long-term retention needs,” said Adrian Moir, Senior Product Management Consultant and Technology Strategist at Quest. “To meet this rising demand, this turnkey solution from Lenovo, Veeam and Quest offers end users best-of-breed hardware and software that enables simple, seamless backup, recovery, data deduplication, replication and cloud connection, quickly and at scale. This solution also accelerates backups to reduce risks posed by data loss, slashes backup storage requirements and minimizes costs on-premises and in the cloud, empowering users to leverage cloud object storage for long-term data retention.”

Data generation and replication will expand at a compound annual rate of 23 percent throughout the 2020-2025 prediction period, according to IDC’s worldwide DataSphere and StorageSphere forecasts. In addition, IDC estimates that “thanks to the rising role of the cloud for storage and consumption, the business DataSphere will grow two times faster than the consumer DataSphere.”
However, as the volume of data rises, data security systems are under more pressure to optimize and decrease data footprints in both data centers and the cloud, stated Quest Software. The capacity to decrease the quantity of data kept in any place would be critical for cost reduction. Organizations would be better able to cut expenses and storage utilization in an ever-expanding data realm with the ability to employ data reduction solutions utilizing native cloud storage.
As longtime partners, this Lenovo, Veeam and Quest joint solution would deliver the following:
- Ensure fast backup, recovery and disaster recovery of business-critical systems, applications and data
- Significantly reduce backup storage requirements, and costs incurred on-premises and in the cloud
- Enable use of low-cost cloud object storage for long-term data retention
