Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that its Quantum vmPRO 4000 virtual server data protection appliance has been named “2011 Backup Hardware Product of the Year” in Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com’s annual awards feature. Adding to a growing body of accolades for Quantum vmPRO™ solutions, the award recognizes the 

vmPRO 4000 for superior innovation, performance, ease of integration and use, manageability, functionality and value in the Backup Hardware category. It also reflects Quantum’s success in extending its data protection leadership beyond physical environments by combining industry-leading technologies to provide optimized solutions for virtualization customers.

The Product of the Year award was judged by the Storage magazine/SearchStorage.com editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants. Quantum’s win comes just two months after its vmPRO was named “Storage Virtualisation Product of the Year” at the Storage, Virtualisation and Cloud Computing (SVC) Awards in the UK. Tolly Group, an industry analyst firm, also recently evaluated the solution and confirmed its implementation flexibility, ease-of-use, and advanced functionality.

Quantum vmPRO 4000 appliances integrate backup software and storage with industry-leading DXi® deduplication technology to deliver all-in-one protection for virtual machines (VMs) in remote offices or small and medium-size businesses. Quantum vmPRO technology operates as a virtual appliance integrated into VMware vCenter for streamlined management. Quantum’s unique approach reduces the time spent on data protection, enabling greater utilization of server, storage and network resources. Progressive optimization technology reduces the amount of data to be protected by up to 75 percent and pre-conditions data to make deduplication more effective. Quantum vmPRO stores virtual machines in their native format for fast recovery of either whole VMs or individual files and integrates well with third-party backup applications. The company also offers vmPRO software for data centers, which works with mid-range and enterprise DXi appliances to simplify and accelerate backup, restore and disaster recovery protection in virtual environments while reducing IT costs. 

“Quantum vmPRO solutions have dramatically advanced storage efficiency and data protection in virtual environments,” said Robert Clark, senior vice president, Data Protection Group, Quantum. “Our technology allows customers to augment their existing infrastructure investment with a unique product that enables the consolidation of virtual and physical data protection. This award validates our focus on combining intelligence and value to meet customers’ full range of evolving data protection needs. We will continue to build on our technology leadership, as our Quantum vmPRO solutions have the ability to serve as the foundation for cloud-based data protection solutions.”

The ninth annual Storage magazine awards fielded nearly 200 entries across six separate categories. The Backup Hardware category included tape libraries, tape drives for backup, media, disk backup targets, virtual tape libraries (VTL), deduplication devices and gateways appliances for cloud backup.
