Archiving from Redstor

By 16th Nov 2021Security
As information is continually captured and stored, primary storage solutions quickly reach capacity, meaning more investment is needed. This unanticipated investment in additional hardware is typically capital expenditure and can cause significant budgetary pressures.
The situation can be exacerbated if a business subsequently needs to scale back for any reason. Add to this, the ever-growing need for increased data security and 24/7/365 data access, and it’s clear that archiving data to physical media, transporting that media offsite and storing it for long periods in a dusty vault, is no longer fit for purpose.

Cut management costs and liberate your IT team.

Redstor delivers simple-to-manage, highly scalable, long-term cloud archiving-as-a-service.

No more archive headaches, or stretched IT staff – just simple, efficient, and immediate archive access for your workforce and the systems they rely on. 

Is your archived data available instantly?

The time has come to ditch legacy technologies such as magnetic tape and expensive, clunky archiving solutions and swap them for simple, scalable, and instantly accessible cloud archiving.

When you archive files of any size (including databases) with Redstor, a tiny stub file is left behind on primary storage. This stub represents the original data but consumes almost zero disk space. When one of these stubs is opened by a user or application, InstantData™ rehydrates the portion of the file that is accessed, serving the file or database up immediately, on demand, and effortlessly to the user or application.

Important to note, the local copy is only replaced with a stub once the file has been error-checked and confirmed as existing offsite in multiple, secure Redstor data centres, guaranteeing data security. So now, instead of submitting IT tickets or sending a member of staff to access data stored on magnetic tapes (yes, all of them!) users simply click the file they want and continue working seamlessly 24/7/365.

We can help you radically reduce the threat posed by malware and minimise the potential for data breaches, whilst making downtime a thing of the past. With Redstor, you can quickly and easily restore data to its original location or a new location of your choice. And, you can complete ad-hoc file recoveries or full system restores at any time and as often as required, at no additional charge. We ensure your data is always available, instantly.

The days of high storage costs, siloed data and difficult data access are over. Every day we help more than 40,000 customers around the world simplify the task of backing up critical business data and systems. Our pioneering data management solution offers rapid data restoration and enables organisations to easily meet Recovery Point Objectives and Recovery Time Objectives to ensure their business is ‘always-on’.
