Quantum's program makes it easy for channel partners to deliver innovative and integrated solutions to their customers.
  • For customers who need to retain and access hundreds of terabytes of unstructured data, Quantum Lattus Object Storage is a self-healing, self-protecting private cloud solution that enables more efficient primary storage usage, delivers extreme archive data resiliency and protection, and offers low latency disk access to archive data. Compared to RAID or tape storage, Lattus Object Storage provides the most effective solution on a cost/performance basis for active access, retention and protection of unstructured data in large archive environments.
