Quest QoreStor Valuable Features
QoreStor seems to do a fabulous job of deduplication and compression. Otherwise, some of this could get pretty expensive in terms of storage costs. The fact that it can really cut that data down is great. 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.

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.
We don't use replication features. We use a backup software to control the replication.
Right now, we only present QoreStor to the backup server. So the backup server, of course, will talk to software like a vSphere environment and the other data store. But I think all the backup servers come between the other stores and QoreStor.
We rely on QoreStor to do deduplication, which means that it's faster for us. Of course, the backup software can work with QoreStor to acquire dedupe, which reduces network traffic a lot.View full review »
