QStar Technologies Inc. Now Supports Rimage Disk Publishing Systems with Online Archive Management and Data Protection

  • 22 November, 2007 15:00

<p>Enables customers to manage online pools of archive data through a seamless tiered storage management structure</p>
<p>Sydney, November 22, 2007 – Aust-STOR (ADS) Pty Ltd announces QStar Technologies, Inc., a global leader in compliance, archiving and data protection solutions, support for Rimage disc publishing systems using its QStar HSM and Data Director products. This support enables customers to manage online pools of archive data through a seamless tiered storage management structure, which also supports disc publishing in optical archive formats.</p>
<p>The QStar software package allows users to write large quantities of data automatically spanning across multiple DVD or Blu-Ray discs. The discs are automatically recorded in a non proprietary file system and feature uniquely printed labels using a Rimage disc publishing system. Hundreds of terabytes of data can be easily transferred to archive stores managed by QStar online and/or moved offline to DVD or Blu-ray discs, enabling a high-volume optical publishing and archiving solution. The online file system of all data written with QStar is easily searchable to locate files that have been archived with the solution.</p>
<p>The software also includes numerous powerful features such as a flexible single or multi-volume view for all recorded media, automated data migration, scheduled archiving, and archive data protection functionality. QStar archive software integrates with the newest Rimage hardware making this package a powerful and flexible data archiving solution.</p>
<p>"We are pleased to have a software solution partner like QStar", said Manny Almeida, Rimage's Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales. "QStar's functionality and features add new value by addressing the online archiving needs that were previously unavailable with Rimage publishing systems. Now, a company can integrate QStar for use with a Producer series product, and manage a low- cost online archive with all the benefits of offline disk publishing, allowing for an immediate return on investment."</p>
<p>"QStar sees a great new opportunity for the archive segment by supporting the Rimage product line," states Riccardo Finotti, President of QStar Technologies Inc. "With the support of Rimage, QStar has created an application that expands the power and capabilities of both the Rimage publishers and the QStar archive package to enable users to archive, protect and offload unlimited amounts of data to inexpensive yet reliable media. The combined solution is an impressive application that has the power to address the retention and preservation needs of long-term archiving applications."</p>
<p>The solution is available starting in December 2007 and can be purchased from any QStar authorized reseller.</p>
<p>"This is great news for new and existing Rimage users, we expect a great demand for the new Rimage/QStar integrated solution. Many customers want a shelf archive management solution, capable of handling large volumes of data, where the data can be easily searched and retrieved even when offline. This greatly reduces the cost of managing all that data on-line or near-line. It's a great combination of products for new customers with high-volume archiving needs, who don't want to spend too much on the storage hardware, but still want and need to archive to write once, permanent media for compliance. It is also a powerful add-on for existing Rimage customers, who want to add on-line archiving to their current CD/DVD distribution solution." Said Bruce Macdonald, Business Development Manager at Aust-STOR.</p>
