…That Take You to a Whole New Level

cloud storage service


Get instant results with relevancy ranking and hit highlighting. Search across storage accounts and content types.

Restrict searches to folders, users/groups, and various item-level metadata.

General user search or privileged user search: Both are available with HubStor.

 cloud egress


We are not a gatekeeper of your data. Instead, we give you complete control to export and recover with ease.

Egress cases for audits or investigations. Perform rapid recovery in response to data loss or ransomware.

Select entire storage accounts or individual folders or items. Apply metadata filters to control what exports. Use restore features like point-in-time, specific range, and stubbing to handle recovery and migration scenarios with fast RTO.

 cloud file versioning

File Version History

HubStor detects changes to items and maintains a version history in the cloud.

Versioning is also leveraged in HubStor’s point-in-time recovery feature.

Deduplication & Compression

Our clients see anywhere between 50% to 80% reduction in their storage volume. If you archive 100 TB and it reduces to 20 TB in HubStor, you enjoy the savings because consumption of the service is based on your actual usage of cloud infrastructure.

 cloud storage search


HubStor includes an Admin Portal for privileged users and a User Portal for end users. People sign-in to HubStor the same way they sign-in to Office 365. You can manage access with role-based access, and HubStor syncs Security ACLs for consistent data-layer authorization.

In the User Portal, people can have varying levels of authorization to browse, search, retrieve, and share their content. Link-based sharing can be to internal users or groups, as well as external users. Optionally, users can also perform background downloads of entire folder sets from the archive to approved locations on-premises.

 cloud storage gateway vendor

HubStor Connector Service

With HubStor, you can install as many instances of the Connector Service software as you require to cloud-enable your existing storage investments.

The Connector Service includes our full suite of connector types: File systems, mailboxes, PST files, Office 365, etc. Each instance can support multiple connector configurations where each connector operates with a unique policy configuration and schedule.

To make things easy, HubStor includes a template option so that you can save policy configurations globally and re-use them across any instances of the Connector Service in your environment.

 azure import service

Ingest Large Volumes of Legacy Data

Decommissioning old hardware? Retiring applications? Migrating a legacy archive?

You can certainly tackle these problems with the Connector Service. However, instead of pushing all that data over your network connection, you can alternatively use drive shipping via the Azure Import Service. Microsoft will upload the data to Azure File Services and HubStor will ingest it in the cloud.

HubStor includes a patent-pending feature to sync the original metadata and Security ACLs too.

…That Secure Your Data

 azure active directory

Seamless Identity & Access Management

If you aren’t already using Azure Active Directory, HubStor helps you configure using the free version. It’s a 20-minute process to connect with your Active Directory.

HubStor then leverages Azure AD as its trusted identity provider for authentication. It also syncs with Azure AD to know about account status, users with multiple identifiers, and group memberships.

 azure file services security

Access Rights Synchronization

Whenever HubStor ingests content, it captures and inherits the original data-level authorization. HubStor then uses this security to ensure people see their content only.

 azure storage encryption

RBAC Authorization

In addition to syncing Security ACLs, HubStor includes an RBAC feature whereby you can manage access to HubStor at the user, group, or role level.

Control permissions for applications, the User Portal, and the Admin Portal.

 cloud storage encryption

At-Rest and In-Motion

With HubStor, you always have bank-grade security for your data in-motion.

We offer two options for encryption-at-rest:

  1. Azure Encryption — Transparently encrypts and decrypts at-rest in the cloud.
  2. Pre-Ingest Encryption — The Connector Service encrypts with your key before ingesting to the cloud so that your key remains on-premises and only you have access.

The two at-rest options can be used together where the pre-ingest method applies to specific workloads.

 cloud dlp

Immutable Event History

HubStor maintains an immutable audit log of all system, administrator, and user activities.

Query and report on configuration changes, data access, searches, sharing, deletions, activity blocking, and event-based retention.

 azure security

Activity Blocking Rules

DLP tags in HubStor can be applied as an output to your data classification queries and policies. DLP tags can have associated behaviors that control what actions can be taken.

For example, you might tag certain content as ‘sensitive intellectual property’ and prevent users from accessing this data.

Geographic Redundancy

Do you want your HubStor environment to be readily available in the event that the primary Azure region hosting your tenant becomes offline?

We can configure your HubStor tenant to have a warm stand-by so that you can be running smoothly within four hours of a primary Azure region failure.

Secure Cloud Ingestion

HubStor has a patent-pending feature that ensures the API key for your target storage account in the cloud is never known externally.

The Connector Service instances and applications that might retrieve content have no connection to or knowledge of your secure cloud archive storage.

 compliance cloud storage

Write-Once-Read-Many Compliance

Your content is immutable in HubStor, and you can block deletion policies with features like Item-level WORM Policies and Legal Holds.

HubStor lets you extend WORM retention periods, but never decrease them. When an item meets two WORM policies, the longest retention period wins.

…That Reduce Risk and Help you Manage

 storage analytics

Data-Aware Storage

Behind the scenes, HubStor includes a near-real time analytics engine that continually maintains statistics and dashboards about your content, policies, and activities.

Now you have the power to visualize what you have in cloud storage. Not only that, but as you interrogate your storage with searches or policy queries, HubStor surfaces dashboards and other insights automatically so that you can identify relevant data with pinpoint accuracy.

Need to see everything that a particular user can access? What’s on legal hold? Want to isolate data that is stale or contains sensitive information?

 data classification


Tag content in your storage. Automatically detect items containing sensitive or private data such as credit card numbers.

cloud data governance


Place users or groups on legal hold. Create cases, save search results, and apply legal hold policies.

HubStor provides reporting dashboards and analytics to pinpoint legal hold data in your cloud archive.

 cloud storage chargeback

Storage Cost Analysis

Some people call it showback. Others call is shameback. The idea is that you want to correlate storage consumption in HubStor to a business entity; either a cost center, project, or client.

In HubStor, you can tag folders in your archive with a monetary value and associated business entity. From there, HubStor’s analytics engine does the rest.

At any time, you can generate reports that show storage volumes and costs for each business entity. A chargeback dashboard shows you cost projections and history. You can also leverage your chargeback tags in data management policies.

 cloud data management

Policies & Defensible Deletion

Model policies in preview mode to see what data they will affect. Run policies once, in a specific data range, or continuously on a near-real time basis.

Retention policies can force content to be retained for set time periods. Deletion policies expunge content from your HubStor environment. Policy controls extend into things like storage tiering, indexing, and tagging.

Trigger Final WORM Retention Periods

HubStor simplifies event-based retention with a patent-pending mechanism that avoids the need to repeatedly extend retention until the final trigger event occurs.

You can easily see the associated items on a particular value and trigger the final retention period to apply. For example, when a trading account closes, you can lookup the AccountID in HubStor and trigger a final retention period on all the data associated with that account.

Single Pane of Glass Geo-Scalability

Your HubStor tenant can span multiple Azure regions so that certain countries where you operate can maintain their content within their borders.

Federation across multiple storage accounts and Azure regions is easy with HubStor. Just say the word.
