Q?

What makes RingStor different from other data storage and recovery solutions?

A.

Unlike many other data storage and recovery solutions, RingStor does not just store data in one place. Rather, RingStor software acts as a conductor, directing local data to one or more local and offsite storage repositories. Furthermore, RingStor software allows individual users to designate where data should go. RingStor offers a range of high-quality features to facilitate both security and ease of use, including:

• Backup to a private (in-facility) cloud or external public cloud(s)
• High-speed, streamlined encrypted data transmission
• Scheduled backups and granular file level control with an intuitive managed console
• Minimal agents deployment
• Ability to integrate external solutions using API
