What customers say about RingStor?

For many years we have struggled with finding the ‘perfect’ backup / disaster recovery (BUDR) software. The biggest issue is the need for different backup sets. In today’s environment of rapid data growth, it is often necessary to have at least 3 separate backup types: Bare Metal Restore (BMR) for Disaster Recovery, Local backups for Files and Databases like Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange for speedy data recovery, often due to human error, and a ‘forever incremental’ cloud backup for frequent offsite backups to preserve working data. With the growing acceptance of virtualization, the BUDR landscape becomes even more complicated because the backup and restore versions may have to cross the physical / virtual barrier as well. With so many requirements and so many options, it is no wonder that the average small and medium sized business (SMB) rarely backups their data, and when they do, rarely perform test restores, or even check the logs. Many IT professionals spend huge budgets to purchase Imaging software, local backup solutions (both hardware and software) and still pay for expensive cloud and/or virtualized systems. RingStor literally changes that landscape. RingStor is easy to deploy and uses very few resources. It is hardware agnostic, so you can backup to virtually any type of media you cannot to your system. But don’t let it’s small footprint, incredible flexibility, or reasonable (not cheap but reasonable) price fool you – RingStor is the true Swiss Army Knife of the BUDR world, but better. RingStor combines BMR, Local File and Database Backups, and Forever Incremental Cloud Backups in single platform. BMRs can be restored manually or automatically, to either virtual or physical media. Local File and Database backups and restores are fast and efficient. Cloud based backups can be restored to the original destination or to a local device wherever you keep your RingStor Infrastructure. Does your BUDR strategy require super-fast SAS/SSD Drives or NAS devices that start out at $50,000 and climb rapidly? No problem. Want to back up to an external usb hard drive or anything in between? No problem. You have the freedom to decide because RingStor is hardware agnostic. Need scalability? They have covered that covered too. In our extensive testing, there is almost nothing this system can’t do! I highly recommend RingStor to any customer, from an owner/operator to a Fortune 100 company, RingStor can protect your data with multiple backup types to any media at almost any frequency. You can’t go wrong and won’t be disappointed with this powerful tool.”
