De Qualstar Corporation onstond in 1984 als ontwikkelaar van tape drives voor PC en workstation omgevingen. Hoewel de onderneming prachtige en hoog ontwikkelde tape drive en ook tape libraries ontwikkelde is het nooit een storage reus geworden. Het in eigen hand houden van R&D leverde echter een zeer interessante storage portfolio op. Met name binnen de gezondheidszorg komen we de tape libraries nog met regelmaat tegen. De Qualstar tape libaries bedienen zich van LTO tapedrives.
Qualstar heeft een goed werkende samenwerking met Archiware P5 back-up, archivering software.
