Quantum and Veeam Partner to Maximize Data Availability for Virtual Environments
Quantum Corp. 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. This collaboration will enable the two companies to serve a broader range of customers with simplified virtual data backup solutions that deliver high performance and maximize production system availability while lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO).

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.
