San Jose, California-based Quantum Corporation has announced Distributed Cloud Services (DCS), which is a new line of operational services and storage-as-a-service offerings.
The company said in a statement that DCS is designed to enable customers to redirect valuable IT and engineering resources to focus on meeting business goals, improving the overall user experience and maximizing the return on investment for storage, while maintaining the control and security of the on-premise infrastructure.
“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,” said Jamie Lerner, chairman and CEO at Quantum.
The new services are fueled 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 QDS, the company added.
The data storage device company offers Quantum Operational Services (QOS), which is a new line of proactive managed services designed to provide cloud-like simplicity with the benefits of on-premise control. Further, QOS can maximize storage ROI, maintain the control and security of an on-premise infrastructure and can reduce downtime and improve the user experience, it added.
The company also said that it is coming up with a new line of Storage-as-a-Services (SaaS) which will offer several benefits like improved control and security with an on-premise infrastructure, reduced upfront acquisition cost, avoid data access fees and etc.
Further, the company revealed that at the core of Quantum’s new services is CBA software. The software enables customers, partners and Quantum’s support team to manage and monitor their environments across the globe from a central hub. Customers who opt to send data to Quantum’s CBA software can choose to monitor their environments themselves, or Quantum can monitor and manage their environments for them via the DCS.
