An impossible task? Not if you are using QStar…

QStar Technologies offers a range of data management and archive software solutions that allow organizations to tailor a cost-effective hybrid archive that precisely fits their individual requirements.

QStar archive software creates an ‘Active Archive’ by virtualizing one or more archive technologies (tape, optical, object storage, RAID, RDX, or cloud storage) behind a file system which can be shared out using standard Windows or Linux file sharing protocols (CIFS / NFS).  Users and applications can easily save, search and retrieve data directly from the archive.

QStar’s single source code uniquely supports multiple operating systems (including: Windows, Linux or UNIX) and all major archive storage technologies. Creating scalable archives from Terabytes to Petabytes.  QStar products are a key element to building an active archive.
