Aparavi, Quantum to Tame Unstructured Data Challenges

APARAVI®, the company behind the award-winning Aparavi Data Intelligence and Automation Platform, today announced a new partnership with Quantum Corporation to accelerate the adoption of automated, intelligent solutions designed to efficiently manage, protect, and gain business value from growing volumes of unstructured data. The companies’ combined solutions leverage the Aparavi Data Intelligence and Automation Platform with Quantum ActiveScale™ Object Storage software and platforms to enable cost-effective curation, protection, and use of unstructured data.

“We are very excited about our partnership with Quantum,” says Adrian Knapp, CEO and founder of Aparavi. “Our partnership is expected to deliver novel data management solutions to provide companies with the ability to truly know and visualize their data to reduce business risks, lower storage costs, and increase business insights and data value.”

The Aparavi Platform helps companies to know and visualize their data across all their unstructured data platforms to realize the impact of risk and cost, and how to add value in ways they are not capitalizing on today. With data intelligence and automation, users gain insights into their unstructured data landscape and can take immediate action to effectively manage and migrate data to low-cost storage repositories like Quantum ActiveScale object storage, creating opportunities for immediate cost and performance benefits.


The Aparavi platform gives users the ability to identify, classify, optimize and move their unstructured data based on file types and classification policies including CCPA, GDPR, and HIPAA, etc.). Users can take advantage of over 140+ predefined classification policies or can easily build custom policies. The Aparavi Platform also improves storage consolidation by revealing hidden data, valuable data assets, and ROT (redundant, obsolete, or trivial) data. 

Quantum ActiveScale active archiving and long-term retention solutions are designed for durability, storage efficiency, and simple management at scale. ActiveScale is a leading object storage platform architected for both active and cold data, expected to provide up to 80 percent lower cost than alternative storage platforms. Designed for secure, always available access, ActiveScale is a valuable solution for private cloud storage deployments.

“Ninety percent of data is infrequently or rarely accessed but must be retained for its inherent, long-term value. Quantum is dedicated to data intelligence and automation to help users gain insights about their data and optimize its placement,” says Christine Brennan, director of technology Alliances at Quantum. “With Aparavi, we believe our customers will see cost and performance benefits across the enterprise by migrating inactive data to Quantum ActiveScale.”
