Quantum DXi6000 Family Wins Its Third Product of the Year Award

Top Finish at 2012 Storage Awards: The Storries IX Further Demonstrates Company's Global Data Protection Leadership

LONDON--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that its DXi6700 Series of disk backup, deduplication and replication appliances was named "Disk-Based Product of the Year - Enterprise" at the 2012 Storage Awards: The Storries IX. The award is the third Product of the Year honor the DXi6000 family has received and provides further validation of Quantum's worldwide leadership in simplifying data protection across distributed sites and different environments. Quantum beat out several other finalists including IBM, Oracle and Sepaton.

The DXi6700 Series -- the DXi6701 and DXi6702 -- combines best-in-class performance, price-performance and scalability in an easy-to-deploy backup and deduplication solution that frees customers from having to make the compromises required by competitive offerings.

In March, the DXi6700 was named Storage Product of the Year at the 2012 Network Computing Awards in London. At the 2011 Storage Awards last June, Quantum's DXi6000 family was honored as "Storage Product of the Year."

"In the last year Quantum has greatly expanded and enhanced its portfolio of disk, software and tape products, including the DXi6000 family, and we are very pleased to again receive top honors," said Robert Clark, senior vice president, Data Protection Group, Quantum. "The accolade truly reinforces the strength and superior value of Quantum's comprehensive offerings for protecting data across environments -- physical, virtual and cloud -- and across distributed sites, enabling customers to meet evolving SLAs."

Based on more than 8,000 votes cast by the readers of Storage Magazine, the UK's leading IT and storage publication, the 9th Annual Storage Awards recognise enterprise data storage solution vendors and their products for technological innovation, functionality and value. The Product of the Year winners in each category will be announced in the next issue of Storage magazine.
