Burlington, VT (PRWEB) December 14, 2016
Burlington, VT: Quadric Software, a leader in enterprise-level Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) Solutions announces the release of Alike v4.6 with new features that significantly improve backup performance for Hyper-V. Alike 4.6 now includes Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for Hyper-V 2008 and up, as well as full support for Microsoft Hyper-V 2016. Along with unique features that have always been a part of Quadric's Hyper-V suite, the additions in Alike v4.6 permit the award-winning company to outperform its competitors.
The combination of CBT for Hyper-V and the support for new technology within HV2016 enhances the performance and reliability of backups for Hyper-V users, reinforcing Quadric's leadership in the development of enterprise BDR solutions that improve performance and save costs in real IT environments.
CTO and co-founder, Max Ekstrom, highlights Quadric's integration of Hyper-V into Alike's unique technology: “We're one of the only backup solutions that employs global data deduplication for Hyper-V. Our deduplication and compression ratios have saved our customers a significant amount of storage space and money," Ekstrom explains.
Now, the introduction of Enhanced backups with CBT for Hyper-V in Alike 4.6 dramatically reduces backup times. "Our customers are always looking for ways to shorten their backup windows, and with the performance enhancements in Alike v4.6, they can cut their backup windows dramatically."
Quadric's internal tests indicate that backups using CBT for Hyper-V are at least three times faster than before, and could be even faster in certain environments. In addition to faster backups provided by CBT, Alike v4.6 also fully supports Hyper-V 2016. New technologies in this latest version of Microsoft Hyper-V greatly simplify backup deployment for Admins, which can also save time and effort.
Ekstrom adds, “Combined with Alike’s powerful, global data deduplication, offsite vaulting, replication, backup data validation, and wealth of other features, the new features in Alike v4.6 offer unique advantages for Hyper-V protection, making it difficult for other Hyper-V backup vendors to compete with our solution.”
