Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board
A proven industry leader with a comprehensive portfolio of scale-out tiered storage, archive and data protection solutions for on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments, we transform the most demanding data management challenges into business opportunities.
Whether it’s a blockbuster Hollywood film or the latest scientific advances, it’s likely the content behind it was created, analyzed and stored with Quantum solutions.
Our end-to-end storage solutions span from SSD to HDD, tape and the cloud – and are tied together leveraging a single namespace view of the entire data environment. Quantum enables organizations to maximize the value of their data by making it accessible whenever and wherever needed, retaining it indefinitely, and minimizing cost and complexity.
More than 100,000 customers, from small businesses to global enterprises, have trusted Quantum to help leverage their digital assets to power their next success.
As the publisher of more than 6,000 titles a year in both print and digital format, Oxford University Press is the world’s largest university press. With its overloaded backup system nearing end-of-life, Oxford opted for Quantum’s disk-based deduplication for short-term retention and tape for long-term backup. The result: A 95 percent reduction in disk backup requirements, a four-fold increase in backup performance, and restores in half the time.
Groton Utilities provides water, power, and other services for a wide area of Southeastern Connecticut, including the City of Groton. The IT team’s approach to backup and disaster recovery (DR) protection has evolved over the years. When the servers were all physical, backups were written to a tape library. As servers became 95% virtualized, disk became part of the strategy.
When Crown Media creates television episodes and motion pictures for its Hallmark Channel, Netflix, iTunes, or Apple TV, its workflow is storage intensive. Content is ingested, pulled into media asset management, logged, edited, transcoded, and, finally, archived. Editors pull assets out of the archive and prepare for re-distribution, often years later.
European Space Agency (ESA) is launching two satellites for each Sentinel mission—within a few years of the program’s start, ESA will have four Sentinel satellites in orbit. Each satellite streams more than 1PB per year, for up to 15 years. Retaining all this data required a new archive. “We archive not only the raw, level 0, instrument data but also data processed by ESA’s Payload Data Ground Segment, which generates level 1 and level 2 products,” says Mark Curtis, technical design authority for Airbus Defence and Space. “To provide a long-term archive for all that data, we needed a storage solution that could scale to tens of petabytes.”
Faced with managing content for a new body-camera program, the Calgary Police Service braced for a massive influx of new surveillance video. The department found a creative solution that leveraged their existing Quantum LTO library that was just being used for backup. By adding StorNext Scale-out Storage, they were able to partition their library and add automated tiering for a high-capacity, economical, and highly scalable surveillance solution—all at half the price of expanding their existing disk only solution.
There are not very many imaging environments more challenging than the one that supports launches at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Imaging data, which include video taken at speeds of up to 1,000 frames per second, weigh in today at around 200TB per mission and must be available at multiple NASA centers as rapidly as possible.
Since the birth of The Baltimore Ravens in 1996, much has changed in how fans watch football. Inside the stadium, fans see video clips, images, and replays on high-definition RavensVision screens. Outside, fans watch on broadcast and social media. Emmy-winning Ravens Productions has the job of delivering content to fans wherever they want to see it.
“Even when our television shows are dark and there aren’t any games at M&T Bank Stadium, our fans demand compelling content on our website, mobile app, and social media," explains Jay O’Brien, Director of Broadcasting & Gameday Productions, Baltimore Ravens.
From pre-season practices to NCAA championship games, the Blue Devil Network presents live and on-demand video on GoDuke.com, shares content with TV networks, and provides footage to coaches and players.
“Over the past 30 years, Duke men’s basketball has been one of the most successful basketball programs in the country, winning five national championships, achieving a number of conference championships, and earning a number-one ranking in the country for multiple years,” says Kevin Cullen, director of technology for Duke basketball.
Denver-based post-production house Citizen Pictures deployed a new Quantum® Xcellis workflow storage solution, powered by the Quantum StorNext platform and integrated by Quantum partner StorExcel, to achieve greater efficiency in meeting tight production deadlines.
