Quantum’s New DXi Backup Appliances Deliver Industry-Leading Density and Efficiency

New Portfolio Enables High Performance Multi-Site Backup and DR for Leading Enterprises

SAN JOSE, Calif.Jan. 10, 2019 — Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced the availability of the latest DXi backup appliances – the DXi9000 and DXi4800.  Both offerings draw from Quantum’s years of experience optimizing backup appliances – both software and hardware – to deliver greater storage density and efficiency for enterprises around the world.

DXi9000:  Protect Over 20 PB in Just 10U

With industry-best density, ultra-fast performance, and the ability to protect petabytes of data, the DXi9000 is a highly-efficient option for enterprise backup storage.  The DXi9000 scales from 51 TB to 1 PB of useable capacity, using Quantum’s unique capacity-on-demand licensing, and is the first backup appliance to take advantage of 12 TB hard drives. The DXi9000 has a new high-density chassis option to enable 1 petabyte of usable capacity (pre-deduplication) in only 10U of rack space. The combination enables customers to protect their data efficiently while reducing power and cooling requirements and minimizing the rack footprint associated with storage.

DXi4800:  The most efficient solution for remote site protection and small enterprises

Capable of scaling from just a few terabytes to over 100 TBs, the DXi4800 is an efficient choice for small backup environments and remote site protection.  With the addition of flash to the DXi4800 node, operations such as backup, restore, replication, and space reclamation are significantly accelerated to improve overall data management.  The DXi4800 starts at 8 TB of useable capacity and scales using Quantum’s capacity-on-demand licensing to 171 TB.
