For nearly 30 years, thousands of customers from all industries around the world trust QStar archive management software to keep valuable archive data accessible and secure for years or decades. QStar software creates an ‘Active Archive’ by virtualizing LTFS tape and other archive technology behind a file system. Users and administrators can see ordinary file shares and can easily search, find and retrieve data directly from the archive. QStar interacts with many leading application vendors who can archive content to a file system, but not to tape or other archive technology. QStar creates a "gateway" that allows those applications to archive to LTFS tape libraries, maintaining most recently written or accessed data in disk cache. Older content is seen as metadata only, allowing the disk cache to be a small percentage of the total archive capacity. When data is accessed files are automatically retrieved from tape media and re-hydrated on disk cache for read purposes. In additon, QStar provides automated, policy-based archiving, to find files that should be relocated from primary disk or flash to lower cost archive technology.
