I was just reminded that this month I celebrate my 11th year as a Quantum employee. 11 years! That’s a lot of product launches, trade shows, briefings, and PowerPoint slides. It’s also a lot of time spent with industry analysts. In fact, one of my first assignments, when I joined the company in 2008, was […]
The topic of data growth and security continues to be a challenge for many organizations. The question to “air-gap” or not to “air-gap” is consistently being posed across all industries as they think about a solid backup and archive strategy. When it comes to how and where to invest, air-gapping becomes the last item on […]
Watershed moments. Nearly every person, company, industry, and nation will have a handful over the course of their history. Some, like walking on the moon, involve whole nations and have the ability to influence the future of the entire world.

We’re excited to be introducing our newest backup appliances: The DXi9000 and DXi4800. Our Enterprise backup customers continue to be focused on faster and faster backups and restores, as well as reducing rack space, reducing power and cooling – in other words reducing the “footprint” associated with their backup infrastructure.
Data growth and malware are two facts of corporate life that extend to every corner of global commerce, including dairy providers. A dairy cooperative with 820 local farms, Maites Laitiers du Cotentin (MLC) is best known as a provider of ultra-fresh milk. They also offer a wide range of products including its specialties, crème fraiche and Normandy cream throughout France, the EU and even China. However, behind the bucolic images of cows in the French countryside, MLC is a global company that generates an enormous volume of data which must be protected.
It was great to be at NAB NYC last week and to meet with some of our customers that we didn’t get a chance to meet with at NAB Las Vegas, and also talk to some new prospective customers in the broadcast and production industries.
With New Opportunities Come New Challenges: How Modern NAS Storage Helped A Premier Post-Production Firm Grow Their Business
"Business opportunities are like buses, there is always another one coming.” This is a favorite quote of mine, largely because of the truth that it speaks; specifically, that it takes much more than an opportunity or idea to ultimately have its inherent benefits or value come to fruition.

It’s now been two months after a very rewarding NAB conference, and as the relentless pace of digital transformation in the M&E industry continues to accelerate, Quantum in parallel also hasn’t let our proverbial foot off the gas.
At Quantum, we have been delivering both approaches for decades with our scale-out products, engineered for large and data-intensive workloads, and our scale-up approach for data protection. Why both? Because Data Protection and Production functions have different requirements.
Industry leaders love to talk to other industry leaders when it comes to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), but they should talk to their local authority instead.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new privacy regulation across the European Union (EU) that will take effect on May 25, 2018. It provides EU individuals (aka “data subjects”) with more control over their personal data, ensures transparency about the use of data, and requires security and controls to protect data. If your company offers goods or services (even for free) to EU residents, monitors EU residents’ behaviors (including via cookies), or has any type of physical presence in the EU, then your organization is probably subject to GDPR compliance.
