Key advantages for partners
By providing early access to Quantum technology, the Quantum Advantage Program enables partners to integrate key features and optimise 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 programme offers choice of engagement
The Quantum Advantage Program has three membership levels:
- Advantage Partner: Partners are recognised 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 programmes, and equipment at no cost to aid in current and future product development.
