Quantum has 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 an 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 Jamie Lerner, Chairman and CEO, Quantum. “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.”
