Business-Class Backup and DR
Current consumer cloud options typically do not provide the critical SLA’s or the security that businesses require and storage array-based replication is extremely expensive to implement. Mid-size or large enterprises now have an easy way to bring cloud based, business level backup and DR solutions to your remote sites without replicating back to their primary data center. Using Q-Cloud, you can go directly from edge to cloud, and avoid using primary resources for backup and DR. If you are a smaller business, and lack a cost effective DR solution, you can now be certain you’ll be protected with true disaster recovery in the cloud with Q-Cloud.
Cost Efficiency. Business-Class Data Protection
at Consumer Pricing
The Quantum Q-Cloud subscription based solution gives both large and small customers business class data protection and recovery at a consumer cloud price point. Taking advantage of Quantum’s patented deduplication technology, Q-Cloud can be delivered from 1 – 5 cents per GB/month1. Most consumer cloud services range in price from 10 – 48 cents per GB/month, and none provide deduplication, which means you’ll pay much more to store the same amount of data. Subscription pricing means you pay on a monthly basis for only what you need now with the capability to grow when you want it. Convert your CAPEX into OPEX, giving your business more agility for capital uses.
Cost Efficiency. Edge to Cloud Innovation
Experience significant cost savings when you replicate from remote sites to the cloud. An edge-to-cloud solution doesn’t consume primary resources for backup and DR, avoids costs associated with dedicated equipment on your core site, eliminates costs associated with moving data back to the primary data center, and reduces IT staff requirements.
Simple Integration: Investment Protection
Q-Cloud works with your existing environment today and wherever you may be headed in the future, which means you don’t need to get rid of your existing data protection infrastructure, enabling you to adopt the solution at your pace and grow with your business. Q-Cloud protects both physical and virtual environments, is scalable from 1TB up to more than 1PB allowing your business to stay flexible for future technologies and avoid vendor lock-in. Simple, intuitive management tools easily integrate into your existing environment and all you to proactively manage your data.
Peace of Mind.
Q-Cloud also provides the convenience and reliability of having a local copy PLUS an offsite copy in the cloud. When this service is combined with the customer’s on–premise DXi, they get the speed and convenience of local recovery with the security of a cloud based backup and DR solution. In addition, our end to end encryption ensures your data is protected— from the moment you create it until you expire it — even in transit and while at rest. We’ll help you meet the highest compliance requirements, even for financial and medical industries.
The unique combination of vmPRO and DXi provides up to 95% data reduction of your virtual and physical data sets giving you maximum disk efficiencies locally and in cloud-based deployments. With replication features built in, Q–Cloud dramatically reduces the amount of bandwidth required to get data offsite and into the cloud. For capacities under 2TB, Q–Cloud can be part of an all virtual solution as a local software only appliance, enabling you to get up and running quickly.
