Quantum’s DXi Series product line encompasses several different products, some with multiple configurations. These deduplication products are used as a target for backup, compliance and archiving, and to help meet disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) requirements. Typically, these systems are used as an alternative to tape drives and libraries, although Quantum enables direct output to tape libraries for environments where both disk-to-disk and tape retention are desired.
The entry-level to midrange DXi4800 is available in three configurations depending on the interface (either NAS/OST, or VTL or multi-protocol support). Each configuration includes all other software licenses including the deduplication, replication and DXi Accent for distributed deduplication. The high-end DXi9000 product is available in one configuration that includes all of the core interfaces and software. It uses large capacity HDDs and includes SSDs for metadata operations to deliver a combination of density and performance. Self-encrypting drives (SEDs) are used to protect data at rest in all DXi appliances.
The DXi V-Series virtual appliance line only offers the NAS/OST interface while also including deduplication, replication and DXi Accent for distributed deduplication. The DXi V1000 is offered as a free virtual appliance. The larger DXi V2000 and largest DXi V4000 (more capacity and higher performance) are licensed versions of the V-Series. The DXi V-Series are used to protect smaller or remote sites, be a replication target in the data center or be the foundation of a cloud service such as backup-as-a-service.
Integration of Quantum’s StoreNext file system into DXi brings performance and additional file management features including the ability to scale to billions of files.
