Data Protection, Backup & Recovery
Our experts work constantly to support our clients in the on-going protection of their critical data. Our backup and recovery solutions are individually designed to safeguard digital assets in all formats and drive operational efficiencies by reducing backup time, improving data recovery, and reducing administrative costs.
Data Archiving & Compliance
Storing large amounts of data efficiently and securely can be expensive, time consuming and complicated. Regulatory compliance now demands that many records need to be accessible and easily retrievable for many years after creation. Q Associates is recognised as a leading specialist in the provision of secure data archives and long-term data protection solutions.
Research Data Management
As research data volumes continue to grow, the effective storage and “open” publication of this data has become a significant challenge. Developed in close liaison with UK academic and industry research specialists, our Research Data Management Platform (ReDMP) provides a secure, scalable infrastructure for the efficient management and accessibility of large volumes of research data.
Big Data & Analytics

Across all markets, those who embrace the “Big Data” opportunity will rapidly redefine the insight and agility that underpin success and competitive advantage. Through the powerful combination of advanced storage technologies and intelligent data analytics, Q Associates provides solutions to support “Big Data” projects throughout our client base.
Effective information security is central to any IT strategy.
