Our Story

Founded in 2002 by Nezzen Systems out of Gaithersburg, Maryland, Idealstor was created to provide customers with a fresh and value-driven solution for their backup storage needs.

At the time, our clients were expressing extreme frustration over the amount of time it took them to back up their systems. Words such as “unreliable,” “time consuming,” and “headache” described the tape-based solutions that were so popular.

Being customer-focused, we set out to create a complete solution that was fast, reliable and most importantly one that did not require the use of tape.

NAS and SAN were in their infancy when we started, and hard drives were beginning to make huge advances in capacity. Rather than recommending disk-to-disk-to-tape backup for our clients, we set out to develop an entirely new method of backing up data.

We hit the market with the Idealstor Backup Appliance in 2002 and continue to serve our ever-growing client base by solving their data protection problems.

Fast forward 13 years we stand by the commitment we made over a decade ago to provide customers with solutions to fit their existing needs with the launch of the most inexpensive Hyper-Converged system for their virtualized environment. Hyper-Convergence not only reduces cost, maximizes uptime, improves performance while keeping things simple.

Idealstor offers a fresh alternative to storage that is user friendly and encompasses high availability for your virtual environment, backup/restore, archiving, compliance and disaster recovery. Our product complements cloud-based storage as well.

We pride ourselves on our U.S.-based Technical staff and the ability to provide up-to-date offerings of the most innovative and cost-effective storage solutions.
