Quest Data Protection Customer Testimonial

How has Quest Data Protection made you a hero?

We used to have backups that were still running when our employees arrived to work in the morning. They would have to wait for the backup job or jobs to finish before they could use some resources. Now, that downtime is gone. Thank you, Quest!
