TreeHouse Interactive Re-Architects Data Protection Strategy With Quantum Tiered Storage Solution

Administration Time Slashed by 75 Percent and Backup Times Cut in Half With DXi Disk-Scalar Tape Combination

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/14 -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that TreeHouse Interactive, a fast-growing technology leader in partner relationship management (PRM) and marketing automation platform (MAP) solutions, has reduced IT administration time by 75 percent and backup times by 50 percent since deploying a Quantum tiered storage solution. The highly scalable backup and archive system combines a DXi®-Series deduplication appliance and Scalar® tape libraries to help the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based company reliably cope with an average annual growth rate of 35 percent.

Because TreeHouse delivers its cutting-edge partner relationship management and marketing automation platform solutions through a SaaS model, its business depends on IT reliability and customer data protection. This became a challenge as the company's growth outpaced the ability of the disk array system to provide timely routine backups, and the IT team was spending 40 percent or more of its time managing backups and struggling to achieve better performance.

Fast, Scalable Data Protection from Quantum
The TreeHouse IT team began exploring solutions and quickly arrived at a tiered approach utilizing a Quantum DXi6700 deduplication appliance in its Salt Lake City production data center and two Scalar i40 tape libraries -- one in the production center and a second remote unit in the company's Las Vegas data center.

Data is now backed up with the DXi appliance in half the time it previously took -- and full backups are transferred to the Scalar i40 for long-term storage. In addition, the company routinely moves tapes offsite for disaster protection. TreeHouse has gained significant storage capacity as a result of DXi deduplication, and the company plans to deploy a second DXi appliance for replication.

Kory Willis, IT director, TreeHouse Interactive
"The DXi appliance is insanely fast, and the Scalar i40s just scream. An added selling point has been the scalability -- we don't have to find more equipment or change infrastructure; the Quantum solution can just grow with us. I've been really impressed with the Quantum organization and products. The whole experience has been so stellar I just can't recommend the company highly enough."

Robert Clark, senior vice president, Product Operations, Quantum
"TreeHouse is a prime example of a company completely rethinking its data protection strategy and arriving at a tiered solution with integrated disk and tape technologies, enabling it to more effectively focus on what really matters: serving customers and growing the business."
