Quantum Corporation was founded in 1980 in San Jose, California. The company’s first project was developing an 8-inch hard drive that could operate efficiently without using a closed-loop servo system. Originally they developed drives using the same system, until 1986 with their first drive that used embedded servo. They later produced the ProDrive series: their first product to support ATA. In the mid 90’s they were acquiring tape storage companies and expanding into tape technology. They became a leader in tape storage products and libraries.
They continued making strides with their hard disk drives until 2001, when they sold their HDD business to Maxtor (later purchased by Seagate). They continued producing tape storage solutions and began working on disk-based back up products. In 2011, they jumped into VM and cloud data protection. The hardware they developed, the vmPRO products, won “Backup Hardware Product of the Year”, and came highly recommended by Xerox.
