SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced that Chief Technology Officer Jeffrey Tofano will present at Storage Networking World (SNW) Fall 2009.

--  Session Title: A Tour of the Data Reduction Landscape -- And the
    Importance of Doing Dedupe Right

--  Time: 3:05 p.m. - 3:50 p.m. MST
    
--  Location: JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, AZ
    
--  Session Description: It's important to know about the data reduction
    technologies in the market today -- including single instancing,
    compression and deduplication -- while also being able to compare and
    contrast customer values, implementation methodologies, shortcomings and
    challenges. This presentation will cover: how these technologies can
    provide data movement advantages, which applications and environments are
    best served and how these technologies are evolving and increasingly being
    used together. It will provide a vision on how deduplication will change
    and expand to be a truly ubiquitous part of storage, data management and
    data protection tiers in the near future, and explore its role in cloud
    environments.

The exercise will demonstrate the integration of Quantum's DXi7500 with Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage, showing how data deduplication is applied to and affects capacity and optimization, replication capabilities, support of backup and restore operations and application integration, and archiving.
