U. of St. Thomas Cuts Backup Time

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quantum Corp.
(NYSE:QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced that the University of St. Thomas has become the latest organization to realize significant benefits by utilizing Quantum's DXi(TM) disk backup and replication appliance with data de-duplication technology.

In the months since implementing the solution the University has reduced data center disk space required for backups by 90 percent, cut their previous backup window in half, re-directed their Quantum Scalar(R) tape library infrastructure for long-term archive and disaster recovery purposes, eliminated failed backup jobs, and significantly reduced administrative time and cost.

"I don't get any more phone calls in the middle of the night telling me that our backups failed," said Laura Thomas, server administrator for University of St. Thomas. "I don't think about backups anymore because the Quantum DXi3500 with its data de-duplication has eliminated these thoughts from my mind."
