Fighting a Common Enemy: Data Sprawl
To address the management challenges posed by massive data growth under flat budgets, Quantum and Komprise have united scale-out efficiency with modern simplicity, on-demand scalability and data-aware automation.

Quantum Lattus object storage delivers cost-efficient capacity, data protection and resiliency with a simple-to-operate, simple-to-scale private cloud architecture. Artico is a self-protecting, active archive appliance that automates tiering to tape, private cloud and public cloud via user-definable policies to deliver the optimal combination of data access, performance and storage cost.

Komprise data management software transparently manages data across storage infrastructures. It extends existing primary storage by automatically and continuously identifying and moving less active data to Quantum's capacity storage — transparent to users and applications, which continue to access the moved files without any changes in their processes. Komprise deploys in minutes as a virtual appliance — no agents, complex configurations or special hardware required.

15-Minute Assessment Can Reveal Significant Savings
Komprise offers insights into data composition and growth across existing storage. In just 15 minutes, customers can install a Komprise virtual appliance, learn how data is growing and being used across existing storage, interactively model data movement policies and understand the ROI of moving less active data to Quantum storage. Users can efficiently store terabytes to petabytes of unstructured data files at a fraction of the cost of cloud storage or primary spinning disk.

Availability
The Quantum-Komprise solution is currently available through distributors in North America.

Supporting Quotes
Jason Buffington, Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
"Organizations of all sizes are struggling with storage growth, but many of those struggles could be alleviated if folks adopted any amount of ongoing archiving or data management. The first two and most important aspects of any archival strategy are 1) know what you have versus what you are actively using, and 2) use a reliable and agile repository to keep everything else needed for compliance, for future analysis or potential value. With that in mind, the combination of Komprise and Quantum looks to be very appealing."

Krishna Subramanian, President and Chief Operating Officer, Komprise
