The amount of research data created or digitized each year is rapidly expanding. The demand for centers of learning to provide a fully referenced research library mandates the permanent storage of research data. Many of these archives are made available across the Internet for researchers worldwide to use. Content includes; books, publications, dissertations, records, art, and photographs.

Search engines (such as iSeek and LibGuides) can be used to find specific archived material. This can be a local search engine, reviewing data stored locally or a web based search engine that can find data anywhere in the world.

QStar integrates easily into e-Discovery or other search engine environments.   All data is archived into a store that is directly searchable using industry standard search engines.

QStar Archive Manager and Archive Replicator supports the use of industry standard file systems that prevent vendor lock-in, which can be especially valuable to educational organizations as this provides the flexibility to choose the type of archive storage technology which meets individual budget requirements, now and in the future.  In addition, this support allows simplified migration when required, reducing future migration costs.

Organizations can optionally use WORM (Write Once Read Many) technology to securely store data for decades on tape or optical media.

The software also allows a full copy or subset of the total archive to be stored on fast RAID.  Additionally, for disaster prevention purposes, QStar can replicate data to a second site.

Schools, universities, museums, research institutions, and more, have benefited from using QStar software to create the right archive solution to meet their individual needs.
