Cloud gateway solutions address the incompatibility between protocols used by cloud technologies such as RESTful API over HTTP and protocols used by legacy storage systems including conventional local PC, server or network-attached storage (NAS). Through simple connectivity and basic protocol translation, storage can appear to be a network-attached NAS filer or a backup device.
QStar’s state-of-the-art Cloud Gateway solution integrates seamlessly with existing storage structures without affecting applications or users. It turns your local infrastructure into a virtual NAS network in the cloud creating unlimited scalability for securely storing large amounts of data.
QStar Technologies provides scalable, cost-effective solutions for your organization’s archive storage needs. With our Cloud Gateway solutions, you can optimize data and cut local storage infrastructure costs by migrating inactive data to the cloud.
Multi-Cloud Storage is possible for security conscious companies. In this case data is written once to the Cloud Archive Gateway, and that data is replicated to multiple Cloud environments (up to 4). A hierarchy of retrievals can be set up – such that lowest cost egress fees can be set as the default.
In addition, you can also copy data to LTO (Linear Tape Open), an inexpensive magnetic tape solution that allows you to store and backup vast quantities of data, using proprietary TDO tape format or industry standard LTFS (Linear Tape File System) technology. We then combine physical magnetic tape storage and the cloud to create a flexible, cohesive data storage system.
