Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The initial setup is very straightforward.""The solution is quite scalable. An organization shouldn't have any problem expanding if they use this solution.""Very stable solution.""It's a stable solution.""The solution is very good because it is easy to use and it speeds up the backup and lowers the requirement for the storage rate. It is capable of encryption, compression, and deduplication and it is fast for sending all of the data over the network because it sends only the change blocks from the client to the DD server."

"Deduplication is the most valuable feature. It saves us a lot of space. When we back up 100 terabytes of data, after dedupe, it only uses maybe five to six terabytes for the disk space in QoreStor.""QoreStor has helped us to reduce our backup storage requirements on-premises. We've been using the same devices for quite a while, and so it lets us keep using them as opposed to having to rip out all that hardware and create a new on-prem solution. The advantage here is even if we had to retire the hardware tomorrow, the QoreStor part doesn't change. We just have to have additional hardware and put the solution back on whatever hardware we pick and it'll do the same thing.""Data deduplication and replication would be the top two features. The encryption and cloud tiering are also attractive for the future.""The features we use for the data deduplication are nice because we're able to back up a much larger amount of data, yet it doesn't necessarily take up that much data on the devices.""The dedupe and compression are pretty extreme. On disk, we're getting dedupe rates of up to 65 percent of data and compression of 34 percent. When you go to the cloud, it's more like 76 percent for dedupe and almost 50 percent for compression."

Cons
"Integration could be better.""The product has low capacity.""Technical support is okay but could be improved. I've sent a lot of complaints their way and I feel like they might be able to respond a bit better.""The solution doesn't scale. If you hit your capacity, you need to buy a new device."

"The setup of the software is definitely not the easiest thing. I worked a lot with Quest engineers, especially in the early days when we were first testing it and trying it out. I actually had some of the developers working with us at one point because they were going through these point releases, and I was having trouble getting it to work in this S3-compatible situation. We got it all working eventually, but setup is definitely not the easiest thing in the world.""The management interface is in need of improvement. The graphical user interface (GUI) for the web management tools appears clunky, and not super intuitive.""The installation could use improvement. The initial installation was a little touchy and it's not really user-installable. You have to have a connection to support to install.""They need to increase their maximum capacity. Other than that, they're doing a pretty good job.""In terms of improvement, we would like to have an Air Gap feature to prevent a virus from attaching to something. So that when we don't do a backup, we want the QoreStor to stay offline. It would be a nice feature to have."

"The cost is per terabyte, and overall, the cost was reasonable when compared to some competitors.""Its pricing model is very attractive. You have one price, and you get everything from QoreStor."

Top Answer: The price is acceptable, it was definitely within our means. The license is a perpetual license. Ours is a 5 TB license and, as long as my data stays within that limit for disk—they actually triple… more »
Top Answer: I can only replicate into one cloud environment or what they call a Cloud Tier. This might be because of the level of my license, but I was hoping, for security of data, to be able to back up into… more »
