News Image
Quantum Corp. has announced the appointment of Bassam Tabbara as chief technology officer, with responsibility for driving the company's long-term technology strategy as it builds on its leadership in scale-out storage, archive and data protection. Tabbara has more than 20 years of experience in strategic product development — identifying and delivering on new innovation opportunities. He joined Quantum in August 2014 as part of its acquisition of Symform's cloud platform, having served as the company's CTO and co-founder.

"As reflected in our 74 percent scale-out storage growth this past year, more and more customers are turning to Quantum to help maximise the business value of their data," said Jon Gacek, president and ceo of Quantum.

"Bassam has already advanced our thinking about how we can enable these customers to drive future success, leveraging his broad experience in developing new innovations to meet evolving storage demands. We look forward to drawing on Bassam's technology perspective and vision across the company."

Since joining Quantum, Tabbara has played a key role in defining the company's cloud technology direction and in the development of its new Q-Cloud™ service offerings. These offerings enable customers to integrate the public cloud seamlessly into a multitier storage architecture that provides a unique combination of high performance and low cost.

At Symform, Tabbara built a revolutionary cloud storage platform from the ground up, ultimately storing billions of objects for users and small businesses across 170 countries. Before that, he spent 12 years at Microsoft in key leadership roles where he worked on a number of key initiatives, including Microsoft Research, MSN, Windows, Visual Studio and System Center. Tabbara also holds more than 30 patents.

"We are at a critical junction where cloud innovations are disrupting traditional enterprise infrastructure and approaches," said Tabbara. "I'm excited about working with the rest of the Quantum executive team to deliver on solutions optimised for tomorrow's enterprise."
