onQ: Backup & Disaster Recovery Appliance

The BDR Appliance with Fast Backup, Instant Recovery & Ransomware Defense

Quorum’s patented onQ technology is the beating heart of all Quorum solutions: high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR), and private cloud disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Regardless of the protection model you choose, an onQ hardware appliance will be deployed in your local datacenter to act as the High Availability Appliance. If you decide to use onQ in the DR configuration, a second onQ Disaster Recovery Appliance will be deployed at your DR site.

If you’d prefer to leverage onQ as your DRaaS option, the onsite HA appliance would connect to the Quorum private cloud infrastructure to send compressed encrypted clones of your protected servers and data to our site. We have regionally distributed data centers to provide the highest possible level of security and availability.

When we had a SAN failure the Quorum solution kicked into play straight away. This not only meant that we were able to keep working as usual, it also saved us a lot of time in rebuilding the systems.
