Deploy a highly efficient business continuity solution for remote backup and disaster recovery either locally, across global datacenters, or in the cloud.
QuantaStor utilizes snapshots and remote replication protocols to create a complete copy of the selected storage volumes and network shares from the primary to secondary DR site.
QuantaStor Disaster Recovery Features
Minimal Impact on Network Traffic
QuantaStor’s replication system is highly efficient with minimal impact on system performance. Once a remote-replication policy has been established, it only replicates changes (deltas) so as to minimize network utilization and replication speed. All data transfers are compressed and fully encrypted for maximum data security.
QuantaStor Storage Grid technology combines QuantaStor servers together across sites for simplified management. This is especially important for setting up Remote Replication, which can be done via the QuantaStor web interface in just a few clicks to do N-way replication of both file and block storage. QuantaStor servers within a grid can be deployed in different data centers anywhere in the world.
The QuantaStor platform allows administrators to pool resources and manage local and remote appliance groups from a single web-based user interface. This feature allows a single administrator to manage multiple geographically dispersed locations.
Once a storage grid is established, any appliance can be a DR site for any other appliance as long as there is sufficient Storage Pool capacity available. The replication policy is not limited to only one replica. A single appliance can replicate to multiple appliances via N-way replication for maximum protection.
File Protection with Snapshots
QuantaStor's DR technology utilizes snapshots to create a copy of selected storage volumes and network shares from a primary to secondary appliance at a DR site. The configuration is managed by a user-defined policy engine that dictates how often a snapshot copy is updated and how many prior snapshot copies of the data are retained. Snapshots provide a way to recover corrupted, modified or deleted files. They return the primary system to a point-in-time copy by automatically maintaining a history of all saved snapshots.
