Quantum Wins "Deduplication Product of the Year" and "Best Tape Product" at UK 2010 Storage Awards

The Storries VII Recognise Quantum's Midrange DXi6500 Disk Backup Family and Scalar i6000 Enterprise Tape Library

LONDON, Jun 24, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced that its DXi6500 family of disk backup appliances and Scalar(R) i6000 tape library were named "Deduplication Product of the Year" and "Best Tape Product," respectively, at the 2010 Storage Awards: The Storries VII. Based on more than 25,000 votes cast by the readers of Storage Magazine, the UK's leading IT and storage publication, the awards are testament to Quantum's continued commitment to excellence and innovation in solutions that meet customers' data protection requirements.

Leveraging Quantum's patented data deduplication technology, the DXi6500 family offers simplicity and value in addressing the backup challenges facing midrange customers. All five DXi6500 models include a simple NAS interface, built-in deduplication and replication, support for Symantec's OpenStorage (OST) API, and backup software for VMware environments bundled in the base price. In addition, the DXi6540 and DXi6550 provide direct tape creation.

The Scalar i6000 incorporates Quantum's next-generation iLayer(TM) software with new innovative archiving capabilities and management benefits, providing enterprise customers with a long-term archive and data retention solution optimised for the evolving role of tape in data protection.

"We would like to thank our users and peers within the storage industry for recognising not just one, but two of our leading products in this year's Storage Awards," said Gabriel Chaher, Senior Director, EMEA/APAC Product and Field Marketing at Quantum. "Following our DXi7500 enterprise backup and deduplication solution being named 'Storage Product of the Year' in 2009, these latest awards represent further validation for the strength of Quantum's disk and tape offerings in addressing customers' data protection and management needs."
