Quest Software's newest NetVault offering through the NetVault Extended Architecture platform will deliver a unified approach to backup and recovery.

Quest Software, a still-autonomous company after a defunct Dell acquisition, is building on its data expertise by launching a new expansion to the NetVault family – the NetVault Extended Architecture platform. This solution is designed to unify backup and recovery, and ensure continuity across the enterprise data center.

Focused on SLAs, NetVault Extended Architecture (XA) combines the company's backup and recovery technology into a single platform that allows IT admins to get comprehensive control over enterprise data without getting their hands dirty. In fact, the XA platform allows for connected and managed backups of nearly any server, whether its in the cloud, off-site, virtualized or physically sitting right in front of you.

Eschewing the "single pane of glass" paradigm that so many companies have adopted, Quest Software instead offers IT admins a chance to explore a highly customized experience that visualizes connections and digital work-flows, making it easier to understand the entire backup solution and see whether SLAs are being met within the environment.

XA also provides "granular, platform-specific backup and recovery tasks," which can be performed from a singular console without the need for complicated controls. All items under NetVault's protection can be managed remotely from the cloud using something as simple as an iPad.

Quest Software has big plans for NetVault XA, since it will literally be the unifying arbiter:NetVault Backup, NetVault Smart Disk, vRanger, LightSpeed and all of Quest's backup management software will integrate with the platform console. NetVault XA doesn't require a company buy the entire package, either. Essentially, an IT admin or VAR can drop in the infrastructure and have the company pay as they grow, attaching solutions as needed without any infrastructure overhaul. Quest Software sees this as a perfect move for SMBs on the cusp of budding to the enterprise.

When NetVault XA arrives, it will be packaged as a free, downloadable client for existing customers. General availability will hit sometime in the second half of 2012.
