Reimagining archiving with InstantData™
When you archive files of any size (including databases) with Redstor, a tiny stub file is left behind on primary storage. This stub represents the original data but consumes almost zero disk space. When a stub is opened by a user or application, InstantData™ rehydrates the portion of the file that is accessed, serving the file or database up immediately, on demand and effortlessly. The local copy is only replaced with a stub once the file has been error-checked and confirmed as existing offsite in multiple, secure Redstor data centers, guaranteeing data security.
