First Look: PeerStor WS

Wayne N. Kawamoto
Managing Editor,

PeerStor, Inc. announced that it is shipping its flagship software product, PeerStor WS, for backup, failover and disaster recovery. According to the company, PeerStor is a solution that’s designed to provide business continuity and data protection for any type of business.

The company says that its PeerStor WS offers an inexpensive and easy-to-use software program that allows users to mirror/replicate their data directly from their client/workstation to multiple locations in real-time. Furthermore, if there is a failure at the primary location where their data is saved, PeerStor is designed to perform an automatic failover so users won’t experience interruptions.

The location/drives can be any drive device such as a server, NAS or a computer drive and can be local (on the network LAN) or remote (sent to another city over the WAN). The location/drive is configured by the user/administrator and the company says that the setup can be done in less than a minute. Once the locations/drives are setup the product should require no additional maintenance and work quietly in the background.

PeerStor is designed to run on a Windows client/workstation and mirror data in real time to any Operation System. By sending data to multiple locations simultaneously, PeerStor may eliminate the single point of failure in most client/server solutions and create maximum redundancy for high availability.

Availability and Pricing
PeerStor WS is available now for an estimated street price of US $150/client. For more information, please visit the company’s website at
