Singapore, 26 April 2000 - In a market that is projected to reach US$4.5 billion within four years (Dataquest/Garner
Group, May 1999), Quantum
is moving to alleviate exploding
network storage demands by launching a simple and cost effective network attached storage (NAS) file server range
in Asia Pacific.
Today the company announced the availability of the Snap Server 1000, 2000 and 4000, designed to meet the storage
needs of corporate workgroups with 50 or more users in industries that range from banking to healthcare.
The Snap Server offers a simple storage solution for companies looking to increase storage on their networks.
Additionally, installation or upgrades of NT or NetWare file servers require highly technical resources, after-hours
or weekend installations to minimize network downtime, and a good deal of ongoing maintenance.
In contrast, says Quantum, the Snap Server 1000 (single hard drive), 2000 (dual hard drives) and Snap server 4000
(four hard drives) start as low as US$529 and can be installed in less than fifteen minutes without shutting down
the company’s network and require minimal technical and ongoing support.
Customers can purchase the Quantum Snap Server 1000, 2000 and 4000 products beginning today through newly appointed
distributors for their Snap range, ACA Pacific and Ingram Micro Asia (IMA). The products’ suggested retail prices
start from US$529 for the Snap Server 1000, US$999 and US$1799 for the Snap Server 2000 (20GB) and Snap Server
2000 (40GB) respectively, and US$2999 for the Snap Server 4000.
Founded in 1980, Quantum Corporation is a storage supplier in four of the six markets it serves: desktop hard disk
drives, tape drives, network attached storage (NAS) appliances and solid state systems. Quantum is also the second
largest supplier of mid-range tape automation systems and a leading supplier of high capacity hard disk drives.
