QStar Technologies we believe that curbing data growth, limiting storage requirements and drastically reducing maintenance costs and resources requires a radically new approach and innovative methods, a truly global vision in order to help businesses in tackling these challenges.
The term software-defined storage (SDS) is commonly used in the industry today. When QStar Technologies was developing the first archiving and data management storage systems software over 30 years ago, it had not yet been coined. QStar software solutions are totally independent of the underlying hardware and runs on commodity servers with Intel x86 processors and delivers massive cost savings and flexibility compared with traditional storage systems.
THere are four main elements to the QSTAR suite
Archive Storage Manager® (ASM) storage virtualization manages a range of storage technologies such as Object Storage, Cloud Storage (Private and Hybrid), Tape Libraries, WORM, Disk Array and Optical Disk Libraries to form an Efficient, Safe and Cost-Effective Active Archive environment by virtualizing differing storage technologies behind a file system.
Network Migrator® (QNM) is a policy based tiered storage and data lifecycle manager. QNM software uses advanced policy management to monitor and automatically migrate, copy or move less frequently used files from primary storage to tiered storage or else to a central archive or Cloud Storage (Public, Private and Hybrid).
Disaster Prevention solutions lets you drastically reduce the cost of setting up a disaster recovery site using architecture designed to guarantee data integrity and business continuity at a fraction of the cost of conventional architecture produced for such purposes. QStar Data Director and Archive Replicator solutions can support two, three or four archive targets.
Storage Reporter® (QSR) helps organizations make more informed decisions for storage investments and storage utilization, by executing a complete professional analysis of their storage infrastructure, profiling storage volume usage on the basis of File Access, File Size, File Type, File Owner, and Storage Utilization.
