Quantum expands offerings with new line of distributed cloud services
Quantum Corp announced Distributed Cloud Services, a new line of operational services and storage-as-a-service offerings. Quantum Distributed Cloud Services are designed to enable customers to redirect valuable IT and engineering resources to focus on meeting business goals, improving the overall user experience and maximising the return on investment for storage while maintaining the control and security of the on-premise infrastructure.
These services are powered by Quantum's new Cloud-Based Analytics (CBA) software, which serves as a central hub where Quantum products are designed to connect to send log files and other telemetry data about their environment, making them part of the Quantum Distributed Cloud.
Quantum's global services team is then positioned to proactively manage the customer's environment, either as an operational service or as a pay-per-use Storage-as-a-Service offering.
“I regularly meet customers with a wide range of interests – from making movies to studying the environment, or providing a secure venue for a sporting event – but they have one thing in common: they want to focus on their business rather than the data storage that supports it," said Quantum CEO Jamie Lerner.
“We're seeing more customers who want the simplicity of cloud computing, but the performance and economics of on-premise storage. With Quantum's Cloud-Based Analytics, all of our systems securely join a distributed cloud that can be managed by the customer or Quantum resources anywhere globally.
The Need for distributed services and cloud services
Leveraging and capturing value from digital data has become central to the success of many businesses today, which are increasingly challenged to create more, study more, and develop more with fewer IT and engineering resources. These businesses are looking to others to manage their data storage infrastructure so they can focus on their core mission.
Cloud-like simplicity with on-premise control: Quantum Operational Services
Quantum Operational Services, a new line of proactive managed services, are designed to provide cloud-like simplicity with the benefits of on-premise control. Using Quantum Operational Services, Quantum works with its customers to manage day-to-day storage operations, with the goal of providing better uptime via proactive monitoring and analysis. These services can create a better user experience for internal and external customers.
Quantum cloud-based analytics software
At the core of Quantum's new services is CBA software. Quantum designed CBA software to enable customers, partners and Quantum's support team to proactively manage and monitor their environments across the globe from a central hub. Many of Quantum's largest media customers, enterprises, and some of the world's largest service providers are using this software to actively manage their Quantum products and technology today.
Customers who opt to send data to Quantum's CBA software can choose to monitor their environments themselves, or Quantum can proactively monitor and manage their environments for them via the Distributed Cloud Services.
