The power of QoreStor

With QoreStor, you can lower data protection costs and maximize the return on your IT investment by leveraging virtually any storage hardware, backup software, virtualization platform or cloud provider. Learn More

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 deduplication with built-in compression and encryption that delivers unparalleled storage savings — up to 93%. See how much your storage will shrink with Quest QoreStor deduplication.

Deduplication: The Hidden Truth and What it May Cost You

Cloud-based archiving and disaster recovery

Savvy organizations are using the cloud for archiving and disaster recovery, but slow and inconsistent WAN connections make it challenging. QoreStor replicates only unique data to the cloud so you can reduce the replication window by 10-15x, and lower network bandwidth requirements by 85%. QoreStor also offers direct-to-cloud backups and helps ensure backups complete, even over poor WAN links that disconnect often. Plus, you get improved security with data encryption for data sent across the WAN.

Replicating to the Microsoft Azure cloud with QoreStor

Faster backups, minimized business disruption

Today, businesses must deliver virtually uninterrupted customer service, with no tolerance for system downtime or performance issues, especially due to backup. With QoreStor, backups can bypass the media server, allowing you to back up directly to the target storage device. You can also accelerate data ingest by up to 20 terabytes per hour using QoreStor protocol accelerators, which speed write operations using optimized client-side deduplication, where only unique data chunks are sent over the LAN or WAN.
