Quantum continues to conquer SMEs

EXPECT a run of releases from tape drive manufacturer Quantum as its different development arms bring products to market at the same time.

Quantum’s latest offering, the DLT-V4 tape drive, is designed for the small to medium enterprise (SME) space, perfect for the New Zealand market, according to ANZ country manager Craig Tamlin.

“This product matches the performance, service and price SMEs are looking for,” he says. Bundled with the drive is Symantec Backup Exec 10, one data and one cleaning cartridge, an SCSI cable and terminator.

An additional data cartridge will be provided to the end-user when the product is registered.

“It has a number of in-built features so if an end-user was forced to do a worm-based compliance implementation the technology is there. It might not be required now but who knows what laws will be passed in the next year.”

Tamlin says resellers will benefit from Quantum’s rewards programme and believes the US$50 debit card will be a good incentive.

He admits it might take some time for the channel to get its head around the products and says there are a lot to be released before the end of the year.

“Because of all the acquisitions and mergers going on Quantum is at least six months ahead of its competitors in the tape drive market.”

The DLT-V4 is priced at $,1750 ex GST, with $75 for a tape cartridge.
