Quantum Acquires Symform’s Cloud Services Platform

Publish date:

San Jose, Calif.-based Quantum Corp. has acquired Symform’s cloud storage services platform, which is currently used by 45,000 individuals and small businesses in 170 countries. Quantum says it will continue to support existing Symform customers and will leverage the technology to expand Quantum’s cloud software capabilities and service offerings in data protection and scale-out storage.

Quantum has hired Symform’s development team, including CTO and co-founder Bassam Tabbara, to help build out these offerings.

Symform’s extensible cloud service claims petabytes of storage and billions of data objects under its management in a broad range of use cases. The technology supports seamless scalability and provides benefits such as self-healing and self-protection that enable simple, non-disruptive technology migration.

Quantum already provides cloud-based data protection through its Q-Cloud Protect service and other partner offerings, and introduced a cloud solution for content production, packaging and distribution workflows based on its StorNext and Lattus solutions. The technology and talent acquired from Symform will allow Quantum to meet a broader range of customer needs and provide enhanced service options to the existing Symform user base.
