Quantum unveils backup iPhone app

Businesses can now monitor their back ups thanks to a new Quantum-developed iPhone tool.

Apple iPhone

Quantum has launched what it claims to be the industry's first iPhone application for monitoring back-up systems away from the office.

The Vision App, suitable for both Apple's iPhone and iPad devices, enables users to access their in-house Quantum Vision software to view alerts and address problems as they happen, rather than when they return to work the next morning.

"Because backup problems often happen during off hours, mobile access to backup reporting tools makes life much easier for administrators," claimed the company.

Specifically, the app gives access to Quantum DXi disk backup and deduplication systems, as well as Scalar tape libraries, with two types of authentication required to ensure security.

Reports can cover multiple sites and provide information on what Quantum deems "critical functions" including capacity planning, replication management and load balancing.

"As backup continues to evolve with interconnected, distributed environments incorporating disk and tape, better system information enables better management decisions," said Rob Clark, senior vice president of the disk and tape backup product group at Quantum.

"Backup administrators can rest a little easier knowing they can get a complete report on their backup performance and system utilisation from edge to core for both short-term recovery and long-term retention wherever, whenever they want it."

The app is free to download from iTunes.
