Smart Storage for Higher Education

Colleges and universities today are generating more data than ever, in science, humanities, online learning, sports, and campus security. Learn how multi-tier storage enables institutions to manage and preserve their growing data collections.

Data Management for Your Toughest Assignments

Universities have a host of data management challenges. Technology advances in video production, online learning, scientific research, and video surveillance are driving massive data growth that has outpaced traditional storage solutions. Universities need flexible, multi-tier storage that reduces IT burden and integrates with existing infrastructure—while delivering the performance, access, and scale needed for today’s toughest assignments.

How Storage Can Help Higher Education

Keeping Content Accessible

University content must be accessible to its users and available to share at any time. It’s critical to provide shared access to growing content archives while minimizing the IT resources required.

Managing Content Growth

Technology innovations in software, sensors, video, and scientific research are all contributing to massive data growth at universities today. University IT teams need the right kind of storage infrastructure to ingest, share, and archive this valuable data.

Doing More With Less

Educational institutions are challenged to deploy data management solutions that meet the needs of multiple departments—while keeping costs in check. Universities need best of breed data protection and cost-effective multi-tier storage to protect their data.

Enabling Complex Workflows

Universities today need to enable some demanding workflows, including high performance computing, next-generation sequencing, and sports video production. To improve efficiency, teams need storage that integrates seamlessly into their workflows.

Universities Trust Quantum

"We used to spend an entire day of work each week just tending to the backup, and this new solution has reduced that time to almost nothing... Now my team can rest easy and concentrate on new projects... All thanks to Quantum."
