<p>Quantum Extends Disk-Based Backup Leadership Through Support Of Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager</p>
<p>Participation in Microsoft Public Beta Program Marks a Key Quantum Milestone in Delivering Expanded Customer Solutions for Backup, Recovery and Archive</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, April 18, 2005 – Quantum Corp. (NYSE:DSS), a global leader in storage, today announced its support of the Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager, a server software application designed to reduce complexity and improve operational efficiency in the backup and recovery of data for Windows Server customers. Quantum is one of the first vendors to participate in Microsoft’s public beta of Data Protection Manager and is a key supporter of Microsoft’s initiatives to deliver disk-based backup and recovery solutions. Quantum’s beta implementation will expand the use of its disk-based backup platform and further build on its strategy of providing customers an unparalleled range of tape drives and media, automated tape systems and complementary disk-based backup solutions for use in architecting tiered storage environments.</p>
<p>“The exponential growth of business-critical data, as well as stringent internal service level agreements, continue to drive up the cost and complexity of data protection,” said Ben Matheson, group product manager, Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager. “Microsoft is pleased to be working with Quantum to deliver Data Protection Manager which will help customers alleviate these issues through future disk- and tape-based backup, recovery and archive solutions.”</p>
<p>Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is a server software application that is designed from the ground up for disk-based backup and recovery. Data Protection Manager provides several unique capabilities for Windows environments, including rapid and reliable recovery of data, efficient and near continuous protection through byte-level replication, and operational simplicity through a lowered total cost of data protection and improved efficiency.</p>
<p>Quantum is a pioneer in disk-based virtual tape library (VTL) technology, and its DX-Series VTL systems offer customers a differentiated approach to disk-based backup. The company is a leader in the virtual tape category and is committed to the ongoing development of tiered storage solutions for data protection. This tiered approach consists of disk- and tape-based systems that optimise the performance, reliability, availability and return-on-investment of the backup, recovery and archive process, based upon the business value of customers’ data over time.</p>
<p>As the next major progression in delivering on its tiered storage strategy, Quantum intends to expand its DX-Series product line to include a solution based upon Data Protection Manager. This new solution will provide Quantum’s Windows Server customers a more granular choice in data protection options.</p>
<p>“Quantum is committed to providing customers with the broadest portfolio of backup, recovery and archive solutions to continually improve recovery time and recovery point objectives within a tiered storage architecture,” said Craig Tamlin, Australia and New Zealand country manager for Quantum. “Quantum is excited to continue its work with Microsoft through their launch of Data Protection Manager. We believe this application will be a strong addition to our line of data protection solutions, enabling Windows-based customers to benefit from a new Microsoft product running on our proven disk-based backup platform.”</p>
