FREMONT, CA: Quantum, a scale-out storage, archive and data protection solutions provider has partnered with Veeam Software, a provider of virtual infrastructure management and data protection solutions, to bring their latest joint virtual machine (VM) storage and availability solutions to customers worldwide.

The partnership will enable the two parties to cater to the needs of its customers by providing easy virtual data backup solutions that has the potential to deliver high performance and maximize production system availability at the same time lowering the total ownership cost.

The combination of Veeam Backup and Replication software with Quantum's storage solutions enables files to be restored in seconds and VMs to be restored in minutes. It maximizes data availability at the same time reducing both on-premise and disaster recovery (DR) site backup storage costs compared to traditional backup applications.

In addition, enterprise customers can adopt tiered backup storage solutions that leverage Quantum DXi de-duplication 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 de-duplication can deploy Quantum QXS hybrid storage for fast backups.

"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," says Robert Clark, Senior Vice President, Product Operations, Quantum.
