AppAssure, now called Quest Rapid Recovery, started as a series of backup solutions developed and marketed by the company with the same name until Dell acquired the company in February 2012.[1]

AppAssure was founded by Najaf Husain in 2006.[2] In 2008, AppAssure Software received a "Series A" investment by Bain Capital Ventures.[3]

On Friday, Feb. 24 2012, Dell announced the acquisition of AppAssure, renaming it Dell AppAssure,[1] which became a part of Dell Software Group portfolio.[4] Later, upon a new major version release, the company renamed the AppAssure product to Rapid Recovery.[5]

On November 1, 2016, Francisco Partners and Elliot Management acquired Dell Software Group,[6] which was re-launched as Quest Software and SonicWALL.[7] Rapid Recovery is currently part of the Quest portfolio.[8]

Product information[edit]

It connects to the cloud and protects growing virtual environments automatically. In 2016, Rapid Recovery added the ability to implement DraaS in the Azure cloud.

The technology is available as software or in rack-mountable appliances (DL Series Appliances).[9]
