With increasing numbers of remote and branch offices, businesses are operating more distributed now than ever. Forrester Research’s US Telecommuting Forecast reports that about 34 million Americans now work from home or remotely. This number is expected to reach 63 million by 2016. That’s 43% of the workforce! However, remote and branch offices pose particular challenges for access to data and data storage. Increased latency, complex management, and cost constraints are just a few of the obstacles facing employees and IT staff at remote locations.
The Parsec Labs HyperQ® integrates your remote or branch offices with the main data center – taking away the headaches of management, increasing costs, and performance frustrations. It is a Total Storage Management Service.

HyperQ® allows remote offices to access data from the main data center as if it were local due to a large onsite cache. Just deploy HyperQ® at your remote office and it will take care of the rest. HyperQ® will improve file sharing performance, optimizing data access from the main office resulting in increased productivity for remote workers. Gone are the wait times traditionally associated with accessing data from a remote office location.

It is easy to deploy and configure, and gives you more control over your data.

HyperQ® is deployed as a service. All of the features outlined above are available for a low monthly subscription cost based on the amount of storage managed. Increase your return on the investment you have made in your remote offices and existing storage by saving thousands over buying a new storage device.
