Securing The Future of Your Data.
Founded in 1987, QStar Technologies is a leading global provider of enterprise-class archival and data management software solutions. Thousands of customers representing all industries trust QStar to reliably protect and manage valuable archived data, while maintaining secure accessibility for years or decades. Representing a wide range of industries including Media & Entertainment, Medical and Life Sciences, and Security, QStar help businesses leverage their valuable digital assets through a structured archive solution.
QStar’s flexible Active Archive software is designed to optimise storage resources for the needs of a digital archive. Every aspect of a QStar solution has been calculated to help companies maintain cost effective data access for years or decades using a proven strategy that delivers data security and record authenticity.
QStar understand that solving complex storage problems requires more than technology alone. Successful solutions demand a management strategy that complements and leverages technology. Here too, QStar is leading the industry with a vision for the 3-2-1 Archiving and Data Protection Best Practice*. This independent framework provides a strong and practical foundation to build a resilient archive strategy in combination with a QStar software solution.
QStar’s archive philosophy is reflected in the architecture of their software. Designed to be operating system and storage hardware independent, QStar customers are not locked into vendor specific server and storage hardware. In addition they have the choice of using QStar’s optimised proprietary file system (TDO) or industry standard files systems, such as LTFS for tape, or UDF for optical. The modular platform supports incremental capacity expansion from terabytes to petabytes, and offers advanced features such as replication and real-time mirroring. This unique approach gives QStar customers a long-term data archive strategy with the agility they need to evolve in changing market and financial conditions.
*QStar supports the use of the 3-2-1 Archiving and Data Protection Best Practice endorsed by leading storage analysts, which advocates that 3 copies of all business critical data be retained on 2 different types of storage media, and at least 1 copy should be stored at a secondary remote site for disaster recovery.
