QStar Upgrades Data Mgt. Software

MARY ESTHER, Fla. -- QStar Technologies, Inc., a global leader in compliance, archiving and data protection solutions, today announces revision 5 for its award winning data management software products QStar HSM, Data Director, and Master is now available. QStar R5 offers more data management features and support for new hardware configurations enabling customers to manage online pools of archive data through a seamless hybrid storage management structure with a mix of hard disk and near-line technologies in multiple storage archive formats.

QStar provides transparent access and a developer API for archive solutions supporting 19 operating systems including all current versions of Windows and popular versions of Linux and UNIX. The new version-5 graphical user interface provides multiple language support and enables single-point, transparent access to virtually any storage technologies while supporting standard securities and off-the-shelf applications.

"In light of increasing power management costs and data storage capacity requirements, QStar is staying on the forefront of data preservation with the release of Version 5. With the increased functionality in v5, we help our customers maintain direct access to their archive data in both emerging operating systems and on new greener archive technology such as Blu-ray Disc. This allows end users to continue to manage their compliance data over time with online access, while driving down the cost to manage both legacy data as well as current data with less power consumption in the data center," explained Riccardo Finotti, President of QStar.
