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 the amount you can put into the cloud—that license is going to keep me going indefinitely. I will probably purchase maintenance at some point, after a year or two, to get the upgrades to the software. The initial license came with three years of maintenance so we're still within that window and haven't had to buy additional maintenance yet. We had to make sure, on the storage side of the house, that we had enough disk space to allow for that short-term storage. Because we came from tape, we hadn't needed that so much, but going to more of a disk- and cloud-based backup, we had to buy up half a dozen disk drives to help build out the storage environment. If you have a lot of data and you're going to go disk to cloud, then you have to have the disk space in your environment or in your cloud environment.

When I first found out about data replication and the many benefits it had, I couldn't help but wonder - what about the copies you don't need? Like it's unavoidable for some of the copies to get damaged, not updated properly, or something else. You're right, NetApp Snapshot has a solution for that and it's called data deduplication. It gets rid of the useless copies and creates a clean environment for your data. This feature along with the great data replication it offers has been greatly enjoyed by my company. We use it to keep updated and properly working copies of our data and through QoreStor, we solve our issues with useless copies.

Through the data deduplication we're actually saving up on backup costs, it's that efficient. Yes, Quest QoreStor lets you clean copies of data that aren't suitable for work anymore, providing you with the opportunity to make your database more efficient, potentially speeding it up while cleaning up space.

Hi, you can use the Quest QoreStor software for much more than just data replication. Though by the way, it does a very good job for that too! But other than it, it can provide you with various types of backup for your data. And while doing that, it also gives you enhancements for them, protecting them from malicious attacks, for example, or making them immutable, so nobody can change your data without consent and somehow affect your company negatively. One thing my company really likes from the Quest QoreStor functions is the access of users based on roles. It gives you the opportunity to limit the control of employees based on their roles in the company and this has made our data management super efficient, I highly recommend taking advantage of this feature!

Quest QoreStor can be used for multiple things besides data replication. For example, it can be trusted to make a backup of your data. You know that replication and backups are different, right? Replication is done so real-time copies reside in different locations and backup gives you static copies to use for emergencies. Anyway, this software can do both. And it can do it at attractive pricing, while also offering additional features. For example, you can rely on data security, various improvements for the backup process, and the feature of eliminating useless data copies. All in all, I think if you're looking for a data replication software this one is a great one and even more, comes with additional benefits that can improve your data copies and storage a lot.
