Quantum Corp. has announced an enhanced program to assist technology partners to deliver industry-leading solutions for the most demanding customer environments. The Quantum Advantage Program (QAP) is a platform for partners to test and qualify their technology with Quantum offerings, confirming that they deliver integrated, best-in-class solutions.
Technology partners seeking to expand their offerings in key strategic markets such as broadcast and postproduction, video surveillance, cybersecurity, data protection and archive can fast-track time to market for their joint solutions with technical and marketing support from Quantum. In addition, the program allows technology partners to align more closely with Quantum’s network of 12,000 resellers worldwide.
Key Advantages for Partners:
By providing early access to Quantum technology, the Quantum Advantage Program enables partners to integrate key features and optimize performance ahead of new product releases, thereby ensuring the fastest time to market.
They can leverage a wide range of best-in-class Quantum products and technologies, including high-performance workflow storage, object storage, intelligent tiering software and backup and disaster recovery solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments.
As just one example, many media asset management and editing partners already integrate tightly with Quantum’s StorNext® scale-out storage, one of the most widely supported platforms for applications in media and entertainment and other high-performance environments.
To ensure that these and other partners have the in-depth knowledge needed to develop and deliver truly innovative and differentiated solutions, Quantum also provides world-class training through the Advantage Program.
Multilevel Program Offers Choice of Engagement
The Quantum Advantage Program has three membership levels:
- Advantage Partner: Partners are recognized within the Quantum ecosystem for offering approved, validated solutions.
- Advantage Preferred Partner: Engineering and business support includes dedicated Quantum resources plus a broader level of awareness and training for technology partners’ solutions among the Quantum team and channel partners.
- Advantage Premier Partner: The highest level of engineering and sales support available from Quantum includes dedicated technical and marketing resources, unique sales incentive programs, and equipment at no cost to aid in current and future product development.
Geoff Stedman, Senior Vice President, StorNext Solutions, Quantum, said, “Customers deploying joint solutions from Quantum and our Advantage Partners can be confident they are implementing validated solutions that solve real-world problems better than generic storage alternatives. More than 80 technology partners have already qualified as Quantum Advantage Partners, and we’re building on that momentum to deliver proven, next-generation integrated workflow solutions that enable customers to maximize their potential.”
