Industry-First iPhone App From Quantum to Help Manage Backups Anytime, Anywhere

Quantum Vision App Provides Critical Backup Information On the Go

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) -

News Facts
Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced the industry's first mobile app enabling backup administrators to securely monitor and optimize disk backup systems and tape libraries from their iPhone or iPad. The Quantum Vision™ for iPhone app provides mobile access to an IT department's global backup system with remote links to the organization's Vision software and its store of information. Administrators utilizing Vision software now can use their iPhone or iPad to access system status from any location and view alerts and reports that can identify and address system issues quickly so that backup resources continue operating at peak efficiency.

The Power of Quantum Vision in Your Pocket

  • Because backup problems often happen during off hours, mobile access to backup reporting tools makes life much easier for administrators. The Quantum Vision for iPhone app enables administrators to monitor the status and performance of Quantum DXi® disk backup and deduplication systems and Scalar® tape libraries directly from their iPhone or iPad through their corporate Vision software installation.
  • For backup data security, Quantum Vision for iPhones requires two levels of authentication to access the Vision server.
  • Free to download, the new app gives instant access to Vision software and is especially powerful for customers with multiple DXi systems or a combination of DXi and Scalar systems.
  • Quantum Vision delivers system status at a glance, simplifying multi-site data protection by providing reports that support critical functions such as performance tuning, load balancing, replication management, capacity planning, media pool integrity checks and troubleshooting.
  • By giving system administration staff global visibility to its disk, tape and replication resources through a single console, Quantum Vision saves time and improves data protection.
  • Vision presents detailed and aggregated information for primary and sub-system components and operations, including data replication, deduplication, capacity utilization, system performance and troubleshooting.

Supporting Quote

  • Rob Clark, senior vice president, Disk and Tape Backup Product Group, Quantum: "As backup continues to evolve with interconnected, distributed environments incorporating disk and tape, better system information enables better management decisions. Backup administrators can rest a little easier knowing they can get a complete report on their backup performance and system utilization from edge to core for both short-term recovery and long-term retention -- wherever, whenever they want it."
