Since 1987, QStar has been a leading provider of enterprise-class data management and archive software solutions. QStar’s customers include small businesses, large multi-nationals and government institutions around the world.

QStar’s archive philosophy is reflected in the architecture of our enterprise storage platform. Designed to be operating system and storage hardware independent, QStar customers are not locked into vendor specific server and storage hardware. The modular platform supports incremental capacity expansion from a few terabytes to petabytes, and advanced features such as replication, real-time mirroring, file encryption, and digital signatures can be easily added. This unique approach gives QStar customers a long-term data archive strategy with the agility they need to evolve in changing market and financial conditions.

QStar supports the use of the 3-2-1 Archiving and Data Protection Best Practice endorsed by leading storage analysts, which advocates that 3 copies of all business critical data be retained on 2 different types of storage media, and at least 1 copy should be stored at a secondary remote site for disaster recovery.
