Brochure Technology


Known for its reliability, Quorum onQ core technology was originally created for U.S. Naval combat systems. Introduced commercially in 2010, onQ’s comprehensive and powerful combination of technologies provide functionality well-beyond our competitors’ approach to recovery. As a result, not only do you benefit from ease of use and superior reliability, but onQ also enables you to speed ROI with its powerful key features and unique set of capabilities.

Quorum onQ Virtual Appliance (vApp)

Quorum® onQ™ is the global leader in Unified Recovery, thus providing everything you need for immediate One-Click Recovery™ of all your critical systems after any storage, system or site failure. It does this by automatically maintaining up-to-date ready-to-run virtual machine clones of your systems that can run right on the appliance, transparently taking over for failed servers within minutes. Quorum is the only solution that provides assured, one-click recovery in minutes.

Quorum® Provides Backup, Recovery, and Continuity 

onQ™ integrates the sophisticated technologies used by large enterprises into a simple, turnkey appliance. With the onQ physical appliance, users are reconnected to applications and data in minutes rather than days or weeks.

Integrate in your Environment 

onQ™ vApp installs onto your current VMware environment. It works with in VSphere and on a stand-alone ESXi box. Even though this is a virtual appliance running on VMware, you can still protect both physical and virtual machines that are running on any hypervisor.

0 days shipping 

As a virtual appliance, it is just a download away from protecting your servers. Then a quick install and you can be protecting servers before lunch.

Optimized to Leverage your Current Investments 

onQ™ vApp can easily be deployed on to hardware you probably already have. Be it from a LAN replacement or a server refresh, most companies have spare capacity to be leveraged in deploying the onQ™ vApp. This means the total cost of deployment and ownership is reduced. Of course Quorum always recommends that you use hardware you know will be powerful enough to run your environment in production.

Configured In Any onQ™ Solution

  • onQ™ Virtual appliances are designed specifically to work with any Quorum® solution.

  • onQ™ HA (High Availability) can leverage the onQ appliance locally to supply protection for data, as well as workload availability to instantly run any set of protected servers.

  • onQ™ DR (Disaster Recovery) uses the onQ™ appliance both locally to provide the HA functions, and remotely, to supply remote solutions to meet any customer configuration or need.

  • onQ™ DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) uses the onQ™ appliance both locally to provide the HA functions, while leveraging the dynamic availability of the cloud to provide disaster recovery.

Scalable for any environment 

Whether you are a single site, or 100, the onQ appliance(s) can fit your needs. onQ can be configured to provide recovery from site A to Site B, and B to A, or hub and spoke from multiple sites back to headquarters, or even in a round robin configuration between multiple sites. And always any appliance can be configured to point to the onQ Cloud.

Ultra-efficient Incremental Updates. 

Our deduplication is global “at the source” and local “at the target”— sending a single copy of only the actual changes to any of your files so storage and bandwidth use are minimized, from a single server and across the protected list of servers. This means you can set update intervals as low as 15 minutes and keep deep archives without impacting performance or using massive amounts of storage.

Incremental Forever… Always Current 

You get instant recovery of the most current image without ever needing regularly-scheduled full backups. All changes are merged into your ready-to-run Recovery Nodes, while retaining the ability to retrieve a point-in-time historical file folder or even a complete system snapshot or runnable virtual machine.

onQ Key Features at a Glance




When you designate a server as a Protected Node (PN), Quorum onQ will take a full backup of the PN including the server image, applications, and data. Once completed, incremental backups will take place at the prescribed intervals (as often as every 15 minutes).



During the backup, onQ deduplicates at the source. Once the backup is complete, onQ will deduplicate again across the repository. This approach provides a second level of deduplication, making everything as efficient as possible. Deduplication enables faster backups and reduces storage consumption; which saves time and reduces costs.



While the Recovery Node (RN) is being created or updated, the deduplicated data (recorded by the local onQ appliance) can then be replicated to a second onQ appliance at a designated DR site – either your remote site, or in the Quorum Cloud. This replication is not only sending the delta, but the data is also compressed and encrypted to minimize any network traffic-related bottlenecks and to ensure maximum data transfer speeds, while maintaining the utmost security. Once the data transfer is complete, the DR solution completes the same process of keeping a repository of data and creating/updating RNs to continually provide the benefits of a fully PREcovered and unified recovery solution for all of your critical applications, data and systems that you make part of your onQ deployment.

Instant Recovery


Once you have identified a server as a PN, and its first backup is completed, an exact replica of that server will be created as a VM clone called a Recovery Node (RN). The RN is stored locally on the onQ high availability (HA) appliance and updated with each incremental backup. When needed, the RN can be spun-up within a few minutes– – literally the time it takes to boot the VM. At this point, the server, associated applications, and data will be available to users. As discussed earlier, we refer to this as PREcovery because not only are the recovery VMs prebuilt and ready-to-run, but they are also pretested – ensuring superfast and reliable failover. In addition, when recovery in hours – as opposed to minutes – is deemed acceptable, RN recovery on-demand is available as a cost-saving measure.

Auto Self-Test


One of the most popular features of onQ is the ability to conduct automated testing of the RNs and associated networking. You can conduct these tests on a daily basis, schedule them in advance, and be notified if any failures occur. Gain peace of mind via automated, non-intrusive testing of every protected server. Know that when you call onQ into action, it will perform as intended.



onQ’s integrated sandbox can be used for performing a full DR Test without disrupting production. It can also be used for testing patches, new apps, and configurations – before you push them to the production environment. And, because the onQ sandbox contains exact replicas of your PNs, you can be assured that testing is both reliable and convenient.

Migration Tools


Failover to onQ is easy – just a single click of your mouse, or a tap on your smartphone or tablet. However, as you know, failover is only half the battle. Ease of failback to the production environment is equally important, and with other HA, disaster recovery (DR), and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solutions, this can prove difficult. Dealing with multiple recovery products and platforms also adds to the difficulties as opposed to addressing all of your recovery needs in a unified way. onQ enables you to easily perform bare metal restore (BMR) to dissimilar hardware and/or platforms – physical-to-virtual, virtual-to-virtual, virtual-to-physical, or physical-to-physical. Another advantage of onQ is that not only can it perform a full BMR, but it can also perform incremental failback. For example, instead of requiring enough downtime to restore your entire 2TB file server, which could take hours, you would only need downtime sufficient to recover the amount of data changed since the failover. So, if only 20GB changed, that could be recovered in minutes – limiting your downtime and ensuring the most efficient recovery possible. It’s a win-win!



onQ Archive Vault is a natural extension to the onQ platform, enabling policy-based migration and long term storage of deduplicated data (virtually unlimited) that must be retained for extended periods of time (i.e., compliance, eDiscovery and litigation requirements).
