  • 04 March, 2008 10:42

<p>Sydney, AUSTRALIA., Feb. 28, 2008 – Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced the results of third-party research that was conducted to gauge Quantum customer satisfaction rates. The study found that 92 percent of the company’s customers are satisfied or extremely satisfied with Quantum overall, and 90 percent would recommend Quantum to their colleagues. The research was conducted across Quantum’s customer base, covering a broad range of companies by size and industry and all product categories.</p>
<p>“We are very pleased with the research results, which demonstrate the benefits Quantum provides to customers through our broad range of integrated disk and tape solutions, strong sales engagement and comprehensive service and support,” said Bruce Coulthard, senior systems engineer, ANZ for Quantum. “We also recognise the importance of driving ongoing improvement and will continue to incorporate customers’ feedback as we focus on addressing their evolving data protection and retention needs and further enhancing their overall experience.”</p>
<p>Conducted by Creative Strategic Consulting, the research showcased Quantum’s value as the leading specialist in backup, recovery and archive. For product satisfaction, Quantum scored 91 percent, overall. Topping the individual product ratings were Quantum’s Scalar® i500 midrange tape library and Scalar i2000 enterprise tape library, at 100 percent and 97 percent, respectively. Performance, scalability, flexibility and features/functionality were the key criteria customers noted in their assessments of these automation offerings.</p>
<p>In addition to Quantum’s high product satisfaction scores, the company also received strong marks for both sales engagement and service/support. 88 percent of customers reported that they were satisfied or extremely satisfied with Quantum’s sales and pre-sales interaction, while the rating for service and support was 85 percent.</p>
<p>Quantum streamlined West Australian Newspapers’ backup strategy to allow the IT department to save time and money. “With Quantum storage solutions, we are now achieving backup speeds of up to 20-60MB per second which gives us three to four hours breathing space each night. The previous architecture ran at an average of 11-17*MB per second, which meant we often had no choice but to run the backups two to three hours into production time. The sheer throughput we are getting with the new solution can only be described as brilliant.” Jamie Cowell, Systems Support Officerv, WA Newspapers.</p>
