Next-generation software-defined secondary storage platform for backup

Break free of backup appliances, and accelerate backup performance, reduce storage requirements and costs, and replicate safer and faster to the cloud for data archiving, disaster recovery and business continuity. Quest® QoreStor™ is a software-defined secondary storage platform based on Quest’s proven DR Appliance resilient deduplication and replication technologies.

Lower costs and maximize the return on your IT investment by leveraging virtually any storage hardware, virtualization platform or cloud provider. QoreStor also supports many backup software solutions — so it’s not just for Quest. Simple to deploy and easy to manage, QoreStor enables you to shrink replication time, improve data security and address compliance requirements.


Hardware- and software-agnostic platform
Supports any storage hardware, backup software, virtualization platform or cloud provider to reduce costs, simplify the IT environment and maximize the return on investment (ROI) for existing technologies.

Next-generation storage dedupe engine
Lowers backup storage requirements by an average of 20:1 with enterprise-class variable-block deduplication.

Built-in protocol accelerators
Accelerates data ingest by up to 20 terabytes per hour to address ever-shortening backup windows using built-in protocol accelerators that speed write operations using optimized client-side deduplication, with only unique data chunks sent to QoreStor.

Remote replication for disaster recovery
Replicates only unique data to remote site, reduces the replication windows by 10 to 15 times, reduces network bandwidth requirements by 85 percent and shortens overall replication time.

Back up to the cloud
Allows you to back up directly to the cloud over your WAN but with LAN-like speeds through source-side deduplication where only the changes are transmitted, and ensures recovery point objectives (RPOs) that are typical of on-premises deployments, even over the WAN.

Secure connect
Helps ensure complete backups, even over poor links that disconnect often — links can disconnect many times, but backup will continue once connection is re-established — and encrypts data sent across the WAN.
Direct-to-target backup.
Bypasses the media server and allows you to back up directly to the target storage device.

Data security
Addresses demanding security requirements with built-in encryption at rest, secure erase and FIPS 140-2 compliance — encryption at rest uses industry-standard 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) keys, which are generated either one time or at set intervals.

Best-in class data integrity
Performs data verification and file system health checks to overcome potential storage failures and help ensure recoverability.

Permits easy creation of storage groups — and containers within those storage groups — to define separate storage policies and capacities within a single QoreStor system.

Global View Cloud
Administer all QoreStor instances in a single console, from anywhere, on any device, making QoreStor easy to use, manage and maintain.
