Quantum introduces new DXi6800 Series deduplication appliance
Feb 04, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Quantum Corp., a provider of solutions for storing and protecting information, has announced the introduction of the new DXi6800 Series deduplication appliance with pay-as-you-grow extensibility.
The DXi6800's patented inline deduplication technology, file system software, and metadata management deliver up to 16 TB/hour performance. Incorporating 3 TB self-encrypting disk drives, the DXi6800 also provides 13-156 TB of usable capacity in a single system, the company said.
At a base price that includes licenses for NAS, VTL, OST, deduplication, replication, path-to-tape and DXi Accent software for hybrid deduplication, the DXi6800 offers flexibility and investment protection for midrange and enterprise backup environments, the company added.
According to the company, the DXi's 4x performance advantage alleviates the pressure of continually shrinking backup windows as data volumes grow. Capacity-on-demand enables the DXi6800 to provide predictable data growth management. 3 TB drives enable DXi6802 users to store over 3 PB in 14U of Rackspace.
The DXi6800 can replicate to another DXi or to the cloud and is compatible with Quantum's Q-Cloud backup-as-a-service and disaster recovery-as-a-service. DXi6800 integrates with and supports features like Symantec NetBackup AIR to improve restore service level agreements and reduce time to return to business in the event of a disaster. Data-at-rest encryption via self-encrypting drives provides security without impacting performance, the company concluded.
