Quantum Launches Alliance Program, Offers Cloud Backup Service To Partners

Quantum Corp., a big data management and data protection solutions provider, has launched the Quantum Alliance Partner Program, a program that will deliver managed service providers (MSPs) and value added resellers (VARs) a cloud backup service to help accelerate company growth.

The Quantum Alliance Program will allow MSPs and VARs to sell Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) under their own brands, reducing up-front costs new customers spend on hardware, while increasing the partner’s value towards the customer. The cloud backup service runs on virtual deduplication appliances and vmPRO backup software provided by Quantum.

“We wanted to offer cloud backup services, but the startup costs were substantial,” said Scott Soenen, CTO at BlackBridge Networks, in a statement. “Quantum’s program allowed us to add a new backup service while minimizing up-front investment. The support from Quantum has been great, and now our customers have a new option for managing data growth with flat budgets.”

Members of the program will have the means to easily deliver backup and disaster recovery services to their customers, including:

  • Marketing resources such as solution guides and technical content;
  • Technical and support training; and
  • Free access to Quantum software products for demonstration purposes.
