Corporate Backgrounder

Founded in 1980, Quantum is the leading global storage company specializing in backup, recovery and archive solutions. The company offers a combination of focused expertise, customer-driven innovation and platform independence that storage generalists, such as system OEMs and primary storage providers, cannot match. This combination helps customers preserve their most important information more easily, effectively and securely. In addition, unlike start-ups that offer point products or technologies, Quantum has the global scale and scope to support a worldwide customer base, along with a comprehensive portfolio of systems, software, devices and services.

Industry Leadership

Quantum became the largest independent supplier of backup, recovery and archive solutions when it acquired Advanced Digital Information Corporation (ADIC) in August 2006, offering performance and value across a wide range of industry sectors. The company has one of the industry's most comprehensive portfolios of disk-based backup and data deduplication/replication solutions and holds the foundational patent in the most effective method of data deduplication technology. In addition, it was the first to introduce a policy-based deduplication solution and now offers the broadest support for integrated direct tape creation from disk of any deduplication provider. Quantum's data management software is an industry-leading technology for shared workflow and intelligent archiving in high-performance, long-term storage environments. In addition, Quantum remains the word's #1 provider of tape automation and is a long-standing leader in tape drives and media. The company's service offerings include a complete range of coverage options to provide the right level of support for the widest possible range of IT environments.
