SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM - News), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced the integration of its DLT-S4 tape drive within the Scalar iPlatform(TM) architecture, beginning with the Scalar i2000 enterprise library. Quantum's DLT-S4 delivers the industry's highest available capacity tape and brings value-added manageability and security functionality that complement Quantum's embedded iLayer(TM) technology within the library. Quantum also announced key firmware enhancements for the Scalar i2000 which, together with the DLT-S4 integration, lower the total cost of ownership and reduce the amount of time enterprise customers spend managing the backup process.

By optimizing the integration of its tape libraries and tape drives across its broad product portfolio, Quantum provides unique value to customers of all sizes in meeting their backup, recovery and archive needs. This is particularly important in enterprise and midrange environments where customers face continued data growth, increased data retention and associated security concerns, and compliance demands -- all under constrained budgets.

"The addition of DLT-S4 tape drives within our Scalar iPlatform architecture further expands the range of leading tape technology choices for customers in demanding SAN-based enterprise and midrange data center environments," said Shane Jackson, director, enterprise product marketing for Quantum. "DLT-S4 offers the lowest cost per gigabyte of any tape storage available today, and the combination with the Scalar i2000 addresses the increasingly complex storage challenges of cost-effectively managing and protecting data."
