Quorum onQ: now faster than ever

High speed Backup, Recovery and Continuity

Quorum® onQ® is the global leader in 1-click recovery, providing full immediate recovery of your critical systems after any storage, system or site failure. It does this by automatically maintaining up-to-date, ready-to-run virtual machine clones of your physical and virtual servers stored on a dedicated appliance – clones that will transparently take over for failed servers within minutes.

What sets us apart from the competition?

  • 1-click recovery to any point in time
  • Automated recovery testing
  • Data archiving from a single scalable product

ONQ OVERVIEW SHEET

One product with incredible value

Delivered as a scalable hardware appliance or a virtual machine, or as a cloud service (DRaaS), onQ can be configured to fit your business needs.

Instant Recovery

Recover any failed server with one click in our browser interface. Our virtual machine clones are always up to date and ready to run.

ARCHIVE

Policy-based migration and long term storage of virtually unlimited de-duplicated data that must be maintained for extended periods.

AUTOMATED DR TESTING

Every time we update a clone we start it up, to guarantee that it will be usable when needed.

BACKUP

OnQ takes a full backup of the server image, applications and data, and then executes incremental backups at a user defined frequency – as often as every 15 minutes.

SANDBOX

Our fully isolated sandbox environment allows for patch testing, upgrades and configuration changes before moving into production.

DEDUPLICATION

Deduplication occurs twice, once at the source and once at the repository, thereby reducing storage and network bandwidth requirements.

MIGRATION TOOLS

OnQ offers a range of failback options from bare metal restore to incremental failback. You can failback to similar or different hardware, from physical to virtual, virtual to virtual, or virtual to physical hardware.

REPLICATION

OnQ offers a range of failback options from bare metal restore to incremental failback. You can failback to similar or different hardware, from physical to virtual, virtual to virtual, or virtual to physical hardware.

onQ RESOURCES

Flexibility

Flexible onQ architecture means simple installation and configuration for multiple uses:

onQ Local

Physical hardware or virtual machine is located onsite to provide high availability and 1-click recovery to any point in time.

onQ Remote

A second onQ appliance can be located at a remote site and configured as a remote recovery appliance. Compressed, encrypted data is sent from the local onQ appliance at user configured intervals. In the event of a site-wide failure, copies of your protected servers can rise up remotely to keep your business going.

onQ Cloud

For organizations that want the security and cost savings of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), the onQ local appliance can be configured to send compressed encrypted data to the Quorum cloud, providing offsite disaster recovery at a fraction of the cost. The Quorum cloud is private, and is owned and operated by Quorum, so you know your DR data is safe and protected.

Configurable for your needs

Unified recovery services for High Availability, Disaster Recovery, and DRaaS, and Ransomware Mitigation, configured just for you.

High Availability

This is a typical HA configuration including onQ Archive Vault for long term retention. In this example, three critical servers (SQL, Exchange and Linux) are protected by a single onQ appliance and monitored by onQ Portal GUI.

Failure Scenario: In this example, the production Exchange server has experienced some level of failure. Using a single click, an IT staff member is able to start the virtual copy (VM clone or Recovery Node) of the failed Exchange server on the locally deployed onQ HA appliance. If the users are accessing the application using a browser, they need only refresh their interface to the application in order to immediately continue their work. This works for single and multiple servers.

Disaster Recovery

When deploying onQ in a DR configuration, in addition to the local onQ HA appliance, a second onQ appliance must be deployed at the organization’s DR location. Changes to locally protected servers (data, applications, server images) captured by onQ HA are first deduplicated, and then replicated to the onQ DR or DRaaS appliance at the secondary location.

Failure Scenario: In this example, the production Exchange server has experienced some level of failure. Using a single click, an IT staff member is able to start the virtual copy (VM clone or Recovery Node) of the failed Exchange server on the locally deployed onQ HA appliance. If the users are accessing the application using a browser, they need only refresh their interface to the application in order to immediately continue their work. This works for single and multiple servers.

Dr As A Service (DRaaS)

An onQ DRaaS deployment resembles an onQ DR deployment in some ways. But instead of deploying a second onQ appliance at an organization’s own DR site, they choose to leverage the Quorum Cloud. Server, application and data changes captured by the locally deployed onQ HA appliance are replicated to the onQ appliance in the Quorum Cloud.

DRaaS deployments help organizations avoid the high costs of funding, designing, staffing and maintaining a replicated datacenter – empowering them to achieve both local HA and remote DR in a more cost-effective way.

Failure Scenario: Complete Datacenter failure. DC failures can happen for several reasons like power outages, flooding and other disasters. In the event of a complete datacenter outage, IT staff can power on and spin up all Recovery Nodes on the onQ appliance deployed at the remote DR site - on any web browser, including web-enabled mobile devices.The servers will start in a preconfigured sequence, including necessary time delays. Users can then use VPN to access the servers, applications and data on the remote onQ appliance located in the Quorum Cloud. 


The result: downtime is limited only to the time it takes the VMs to spin up.

Ransomware Mitigation

Relying solely on prevention is a partial solution. So how should you protect yourself? That can be a tricky question. IT admins will want to build a wall around their systems in the form of a perimeter firewall, IPS, host/server antivirus, etc. There are multiple ‘defense in depth’ guides you can follow.

These defense in-depth guides do a great a job preventing known threat signatures. But what happens when an ill-advised user circumvents your security barriers? Or when that zero-day ransomware threat makes its way inside your system?

If your Data Protection platform can go beyond simple file level recovery–if it can actually run a copy of your servers in the event of a breach–then data protection will save the day.

How to mitigate a ransomware disaster with Quorum:
Turn it off. As soon as you realize you’ve been breached with the malware, do your best to isolate the affected servers. Take them offline immediately.

Keep working. From the Quorum dashboard, start a clone of your production server from a time that you know is clean. Remember–Quorum’s solution is encrypted. Run that clone for as long as you need.

Clean your systems. Take as long as you need to fix your production systems while the clone is running on Quorum’s solution. We continue to back up your systems even when the clone is running on our solution.

Failback to production. Once your production systems are cleaned and back online, simply failover from Quorum back to production. All changes that occurred while running on our solution will be migrated back to production.

Notice the theme with this recovery scenario? Minimal downtime.
You never consider paying the ransom and you look like a rock star because you have a fix in place as soon as you realize you have a problem.
