QuantaStor and Veeam Simplifying Data Backup with Storage Grids

Planning for business continuity has become a critical aspect of the modern digital enterprise and that involves extensive data backup, recovery strategies and scalability across private and public clouds. The combination of Veeam and QuantaStor software-defined storage enables IT organizations to reach new levels of performance, flexibility, and operational efficiency.

OSNEXUS Technology

Software Defined Storage

Provision scale-out file, block and object storage using open storage technologies.

Storage Grid Technology

Link and manage storage servers together as a uified grid within and acros date centre.

File Block and Object

Scale-out file, block and object storage in one platform

Grid Technology Explained

QuantaStor Software-Defined Storage was developed with an advanced storage grid technology enabling storage servers to be combined across sites and managed as a single unit.


The QuantaStor Platform

QuantaStor is a unified Software-Defined Storage platform designed to scale up and out to make storage management easy while reducing overall enterprise storage costs.

QuantaStor Key Features

Internal Capacity Provisioning and Billing

Partners and customers using the Cloud License Service (CLS) are billed at standard subscription rates plus a fee for the CLS portal, simplifying internal chargeback accounting and automation activities.

Online Licensing

QuantaStor license keys can be dynamically provisioned and retired for self-service management of license capacities, enabling easy expansion, contraction, and deployment of new appliances on demand with the Capacity-as-a-Service (CaaS) license.

License Quotas

CLS instances are pre-configured with quota(s) indicating the purchased subscription license key capacity. The available capacity can be divided up to meet the storage capacity needs of few or many appliances of any size with a minimum license key size of 32TB per appliance.

Automated Auditing

QuantaStor appliances with keys provisioned from the CLS portal will automatically contact OSNEXUS to indicate that the license keys are active in order to ensure accurate billing every month.

Dynamically manage and provision your storage license capacities.

Automate storage deployments of QuantaStor on physical hardware or as virtual storage appliances with month-to-month billing to provision storage license capacities online through the QuantaStor Cloud License Service portal.

Cloud License Service Key Features

Storage Grid Technology

QuantaStor’s storage grid technology is a built-in federated management system which enables QuantaStor servers to be combined together to simplify management and automation via CLI and REST APIs.

Flexible, Modular Architecture

The layered architecture of QuantaStor provides solution engineers with unprecedented flexibility and application design options that maximizes workload performance and fault-tolerance for a wide range of storage workloads.

End-to-End Security

QuantaStor includes end-to-end security coverage enabling multi-layer data protection “on the wire” and “at rest” for enterprise and cloud storage deployments.

Simplified Management

The intuitive QuantaStor management interface and configuration workflow manager eliminates many complicated steps commonly associated with legacy storage applications to provide IT generalists powerful storage solution configuration options.

Run QuantaStor virtually with no dedicated hardware required.

QuantaStor VSAs increase the performance and efficiency of datacenters as VSAs can be deployed automatically and require much less hardware to run. QuantaStor VSAs can be combined into a heterogenous grid of virtual and physical QuantaStor appliances spanning on-premises locations and datacenters.

Virtual Storage Appliance Key Features

Heterogenous Grid Technology

With QuantaStor, organizations can deploy QuantaStor appliances using server hardware from multiple vendors along with VSAs. This simplifies and reduces the cost of scaling a given storage environment while increasing the usable lifespan of the hardware.

Multi-site Administration

QuantaStor license keys can be dynamically provisioned and retired for self-service management of license capacities, enabling easy expansion, contraction, and deployment of new appliances on demand with the Capacity-as-a-Service (CaaS) license.

Multi-Tenancy and NAS Gateway for 3rd Party SANs

Using physical QuantaStor appliances or QuantaStor VSAs, organizations can boost the value of their investments in existing SANs through the use of QuantaStor appliances as NAS gateways. By delivering storage via FC or iSCSI to a pair of QuantaStor appliances, storage is made highly-available and faster through the use of RAM as a read cache.

Software Licensing Advantages

QuantaStor software subscription licenses include all features, support and upgrades so that one need not worry about hidden costs which are common to traditional SAN/NAS solutions.

Move multiple terabytes of data easily and quickly with QuantaStor Data Migration Edition.

Easily migrate and transport multiple terabytes of file, block, and object storage between datacenters and on-premises sites using mobile hardware and a custom licensed edition of QuantaStor.

Data Migration Use Cases

Cloud Migration

For migrating large amounts of data into or out of global datacenters or on-premises sites, QuantaStor Data Migration Edition is a fast, secure and cost-effective solution in lieu of transferring data via the Internet or WANs.

Datacenter Consolidation

QuantaStor Data Migration Edition ensures that data is securely and cost-effectively transferred when consolidating under-performing data centers or optimizing existing data centers with new servers and storage infrastructure.

Disaster Recovery

For offline or online backups of large data quantities stored in datacenters or on-premises, QuantaStor Data Migration Edition appliances can retrieve or move large amounts of data more quickly than over high-speed Internet or WANs.

Content Distribution

QuantaStor Data Migration Edition can be used for sharing large amounts of data with customers or partners.
