Quantum's vmPRO 4000 Wins "Storage Virtualization Product of the Year" at 2011 SVC Awards

Award Recognizes Quantum's Innovation in Virtual Data Protection

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 12, 2011) - Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that the company's vmPRO 4000 integrated solution for protecting data on virtual servers was named "Storage Virtualization Product of the Year" at the 2011 Storage, Virtualization and Cloud Computing (SVC) Awards. The award recognizes Quantum's commitment to building on its data protection expertise by combining innovative technologies and adding unique value to meet customers' evolving storage needs.

Quantum's vmPRO™ family of products, which includes the vmPRO 4000, provides an innovative way to protect virtual machines (VMs) simply and cost effectively within an organization's larger backup, disaster recovery (DR), and retention process. vmPRO technology operates as a virtual appliance integrated into VMware vCenter for streamlined management. Its progressive optimization reduces the amount of data to be protected by up to 75 percent and pre-conditions data to make deduplication more effective for faster backups and greater utilization of storage, server, and network resources. It also stores the virtual machines in their native format for fast recovery of whole VMs and individual files and supports third-party backup applications.

"These awards recognize the users, manufacturers and suppliers of storage, virtualization and cloud solutions in the European market and are voted on by the readers of our wide range of print and online publications," commented Bill Dunlop, CEO of award organizers Angel Business Communications. "The selections are made by IT professionals with a practical understanding of the challenges facing them. Quantum was the clear winner in its category: Storage Virtualization Product of the Year."

"We are grateful to our customers, partners and peers within the storage industry for recognizing the innovation and value of the vmPRO family in this year's SVC Awards," said Gabriel Chaher, vice president, EMEA/APAC Marketing, Quantum. "We believe that it validates the technical and business benefits IT departments can expect from our unique combination of VM protection and industry-leading deduplication."
