SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced a Premier Technology Alliance partnership with Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, to bring their latest joint virtual machine (VM) storage and availability solutions to customers worldwide.

The Veeam + Quantum Advantage The cost and complexity of VM protection has kept many IT departments from enjoying the full benefits of a virtualized environment. The combination of Veeam Backup & Replication™ software with Quantum's storage solutions maximizes data availability, enabling files to be restored in just seconds and VMs to be restored in minutes while reducing both on-premise and disaster recovery (DR) site backup storage costs compared to traditional backup applications. This combination also shortens backup windows and dramatically simplifies VM backups.

Complementary Solutions Veeam Availability Suite™ combines the award-winning data protection and virtualization management capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE™ for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. Quantum's tiered storage portfolio of hybrid storage, deduplication appliances, object storage and tape provides a complement to the capabilities Veeam has introduced with Veeam Availability Suite v8 and the upcoming release of Veeam Availability Suite v9 later this year. This combination is designed to deliver customized data availability solutions to address the cost and performance needs of customer implementations at three levels:

  • Enterprise customers can adopt tiered backup storage solutions that leverage Quantum DXi® deduplication appliances and use tape for long-term data retention to meet compliance and regulatory requirements.
  • For remote sites, customers can deploy a 100 percent virtual backup and DR solution with flexible replication options using Quantum's DXi V-Series virtual deduplication appliances.
  • Customers choosing to leverage Veeam's software-based deduplication can deploy Quantum QXS hybrid storage for fast backups.

Quantum will showcase joint solutions with Veeam at VMworld 2015, Aug. 30-Sept. 3, in San Francisco (booth #729); at VMworld 2015 Europe, Oct. 12-15, in Barcelona; and at VeeamON 2015, Oct. 26-29, in Las Vegas.

Supporting Quotes Gerd Wiechers, Head of IT, The Mahr Group "We needed a solution which could increase backup performance and reduce capacity requirements while dovetailing into the existing infrastructure and make administration more efficient. The combination of Quantum disk and tape with Veeam Backup & Replication software enabled us to keep up with the ever-increasing challenge of growing data volumes."

Rick Hoffman, Senior Vice President of Alliances, Veeam "Our customers recognize the value of simplicity and performance for protecting VMs while keeping the cost of ownership in check. Quantum's tiered storage solution is a forward-looking approach to VM protection that complements Veeam's availability solutions. This model is increasingly important to address the continued growth of VMs and maintain data availability in the enterprise."

Robert Clark, Senior Vice President, Product Operations, Quantum "The nature of backup in the data center is changing, and companies are moving away from the expensive, centralized solutions that have traditionally dominated there. Veeam's unique feature set combined with Quantum's tiered backup storage solutions will enable customers to maximize production system availability while reducing their backup and DR costs."
