Quest Software, a global systems management, data protection, and security software provider, has announced the general availability of Quest QoreStor 6.0 to enable software defined hybrid cloud secondary storage for businesses.
QoreStor is a hardware and software -agnostic platform, which helps to reduce storage requirements and costs by enabling IT to leverage existing technology investments. The software-defined solution features an always-on, always-available IT environment that supports organizations’ digital transformation efforts and empowers organizations to better serve their customers. With enterprise-grade deduplication and replication capabilities, QoreStor also enables businesses to remain data compliant during data recovery by reconstructing from local data first before pulling from the cloud to only bring “back” necessary data.
The new release provides feature enhancements to the QoreStor technology, along with compression and backup-vendor agnostic deduplication technology.
QoreStor 6.0 also introduces a new Performance Tier accelerating backup, providing up to 2x recovery point objectives (RPO) that enables instant recovery, all without compromising on storage space, compression or de-duplication. The newest version of QoreStor, available from the Quest Data Protection business, also provides access to enhanced patented encryption technologies to keep all data secure, whether in-flight or at rest.
According to Quest, new cloud tiering makes it simple for IT administrators to access, move and recover data on premises and across Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud storage platforms, ensuring more optimized and secure long-term data retention. New performance tiering capabilities also enable faster backup and recovery times through Quest’s open protocol accelerators that provide source-side deduplication.
“We’re committed to delivering solutions to market that make it easy for organizations to address their toughest backup and recovery challenges, regardless if on premises or in a cloud environment,” said Adrian Moir, senior consultant, product management & lead technology evangelist, Quest Data Protection business. “Increasing storage requirements and associated costs should not hold back a business from transforming. With QoreStor 6.0, organizations can cost-effectively and easily manage secondary storage requirements of hybrid workloads and streamline backup and recovery data as they transform and grow.”
