SPONSORED: Meeting the challenge of exponential data growth

This article, in association with Quest, explores how Quest's QoreStor software-defined platform can help end users get a handle on exploding data volumes

Data is a vital digital asset and protecting it and ensuring it is always available has become absolutely essential to the efficient functioning of an organisation. But the explosion in the amount of data businesses need to store has also made the challenge of backing up data, swiftly, securely and reliably, even greater.

At the same time, the increasingly 24-7 nature of markets now means that any loss of access or service will be exorbitantly expensive and being able to resume normal working in the event of a system failure is vitally important.

These trends are what's been driving the higher levels of interest and sales growth for Quest Software's QoreStor software-defined platform, which is rapidly becoming one of the leading solutions in the area of software-defined deduplication and storage.

QoreStor aims to deliver four key benefits - it eliminates dependency on backup appliances, accelerates performance, reduce storage requirements, and lowers overall costs. In addition, it provides safer and faster replication to the cloud for data archiving, disaster recovery and business continuity. As a by-product of all this, it also speeds up replication, helps to improve data security and to address compliance requirements.

By providing all this capability, QoreStor provides the foundation for a solid backup and recovery plan that will enable a swift return to normal operations in the event of a serious infiltration ransomware attack or loss of data or systems and services. It delivers much lower costs for backup and recovery, along with faster return-on-investment for storage resources.

The solution is based on Quest's proven DR Appliance's resilient deduplication and replication technologies and will support just about any storage hardware (including backup systems that are competitors to Quest's own offering), virtualization software or cloud service. While it has extensive capability, it is also designed to be simple to deploy and manage.

Qorestor is the ideal solution for resellers to offer customers grappling with the challenges of managing exponential data growth, the need to ensure solid protection and fast recovery, and preventing storage costs from spiralling out of control at the same time.

Quest Software has a strong focus on driving profit for its partners and has an excellent and highly-regarded partner programme. This provides enablement and business development support, as well as exceptional margin opportunities. The company also boasts very good net promoter and customer satisfaction ratings, thus being able to exceed even the highest business expectations, needs and SLAs.
