Why is QoreStor the best bet for cloud-connected storage?

Connect to the cloud faster and more easily with QoreStor. You can lower data protection costs and maximize the return on your IT investment by leveraging virtually any storage hardware, data backup software, virtualization platform or cloud provider.
Not all deduplication is created equal

Not all deduplication is created equal

Exponential data growth takes a toll on your storage budget. Up to now, data deduplication relied on hardware appliances or was tied to only one vendor’s backup solution. With QoreStor, you get a pure software solution that you can run on virtually any server hardware and use with most backup solutions. It delivers content-aware variable-block data dedupe with built-in compression and encryption that delivers unparalleled storage savings — up to 93%. See how much your storage will shrink with QoreStor deduplication.
Replicate directly to the cloud for long-term retention and disaster recovery

Replicate directly to the cloud for long-term retention and disaster recovery

If slow and inconsistent WAN connections make it challenging to use the cloud for long-term retention and disaster recovery, QoreStor has you covered. It replicates only unique data to the cloud, reducing the replication window by 10-15x and lowering network bandwidth requirements by 85%. You can also extend any QoreStor instance to cloud-native storage on AWS or Azure Blob Storage.
Faster backups and immediate recovery to, and from, the cloud

Faster backups and immediate recovery to, and from, the cloud

Your stakeholders have no tolerance for system downtime due to backups. The QoreStor cloud recovery model addresses this unequivocally by extending its footprint into cloud-native storage where its intelligent recovery pulls data locally before pulling backup data stored in the cloud. Not only is recovery significantly faster, cloud egress costs are lower. QoreStor also accelerates data ingest by up to 20 terabytes per hour using protocol accelerators and client-side deduplication where only unique data chunks are sent over the LAN or WAN.
