Replicate directly to the cloud for long-term retention and disaster recovery

If slow and inconsistent WAN connections make it challenging to use the Cloud for long-term retention and disaster recovery, QoreStor has you covered. It replicates only unique data to the Cloud, reducing the replication window by 10-15x and lowering network bandwidth requirements by 85%. You can also extend any QoreStor instance to Cloud-native storage on AWS or Azure Blob Storage.

Faster backups and immediate recovery to, and from, the cloud

Your stakeholders have no tolerance for system downtime due to backups. The QoreStor Cloud recovery model addresses this unequivocally by extending its footprint into cloud-native storage where its intelligent recovery pulls data locally before pulling backup data stored in the Cloud. Not only is recovery significantly faster, Cloud egress costs are lower. QoreStor also accelerates data ingest by up to 20 terabytes per hour using protocol accelerators and client-side deduplication where only unique data chunks are sent over the LAN or WAN.



Threat management

Malware threats continue to turn their focus on small and midsized businesses and distributed enterprises, with no end in sight. But with constrained resources and a limited budget, how are these organizations going to win the fight against advanced attacks?
The Excepta hardware leverages multiple methods of detection to catch known and unknown threats. Through the correlation and prioritization of network, endpoint and threat intelligence event data, users can confidently respond to the most severe attacks before damage is done.
