Quantum To Bundle Veritas Backup Exec 10 QuickStart With Tape For SMBs

Paul Zeiter, director of Americas channel sales for the Irvine, Calif., company said the Veritas application will replace software Quantum now bundles via a deal with BakBone Software, San Diego.

"This product seeds solution providers' customer base with great product and lets them help customers scale as needed with more capabilities," he said. "Also, it helps create up-sale opportunities for new drives and tape libraries."

The Veritas software will come bundled with Quantum's DDS/DAT, DLT, and LTO tape drives, said Zeiter. Only Quantum's Travan drives, which include software from Yosemite, will not use the Veritas application, he said.

Glenn Groshans, director of product marketing for Veritas' Data Management Group, said Backup Exec 10 QuickStart Edition is the same software as the company's Backup Exec 10 application, except that it is designed to be used only with a single server.
