Backup & Archive


QuantaStor provides scale-out technology while simplifying the archive, backup, and recovery process.

Critical data is protected in the event of a major hardware or software failure that could be caused by events ranging from human error to a natural disaster.

Scale-up Backup and Archive Storage

For applications that require data compression, remote replication and snapshots, the scale-up clusters of ZFS-based Storage Pools are recommended. QuantaStor’s grid management technology combines appliances to simplify management of storage servers deployed across global data centers. For high performance applications, SSDs are used to accelerate performance while HDDs are used for reaching high-capacity storage goals.

Scale-out Backup and Archive Storage

For applications that require a single massive namespace, QuantaStor can be deployed as a grid of appliances to deliver over 100PB of storage per storage grid.

Backup and Archive Features

Powerful Snapshotting Technology

Easy-to-configure backup policies with QuantaStor enables multiple copies of snapshots to be taken from any server, appliance or desktop PC. IT administrators can also maintain a full data backup within any time frame.

Fault Tolerance and High Availability

Both single-node and multi-node solutions leverage hardware accelerated RAID to ensure fault-tolerance in the event of a disk failure. Multi-node scale-out configurations additionally can be made highly-available when configured to use erasure coding or replica-based file mirroring.

Highly Efficient Disk and Network Utilization

Compression and deduplication ensures that network traffic and storage capacities are minimized. QuantaStor supports compression rates up to 300 percent of actual physical-disk capacity.

Parallel Backup Streaming

QuantaStor supports up to 64 concurrent backup streams. Parallel backup streams dramatically speed up the backup process and shrinks backup window timing. This enables large backups to be completed within a tight time frame.

Secure Data Backup and Archive

QuantaStor supports AES256 bit software encryption with AES-NI hardware acceleration. This enables one to use any media type and does not require special SED devices as the full drive encryption is achieved via software.
