Quantum Corp., a global specialist in backup, recovery and archiving solutions, announced DXi 2.0, the next generation software platform for its DXi-Series disk backup and deduplication solutions. DXi-Series models running DXi 2.0 software, beginning with the latest generation SMB and midrange systems, will deliver the highest deduplication speeds available for any open protocol inline appliance in their respective classes, doubling the performance over earlier generation DXi products with no change in price. As a result, users will be able to protect more data on smaller systems, further solidifying the price-performance leadership of the DXi-Series.
The new DXi 2.0 software provides enhanced management features that significantly streamline deployment, monitoring and administration of the entire data protection process, saving IT managers time, even in complex multi-site backup and disaster recovery environments.
DXi 2.0 employs a full set of installation wizards and optimized management screens for fast set-up and ongoing administration, reducing the total number of screens for common operations by 50 percent to 65 percent and enabling administrators to get more done in less time.
The new software leverages the multi-tier, purpose-built appliance design of the newest DXi models, and it continues to support the DXi direct path-to-tape functionality that integrates high-speed disk backup with low-cost retention under a single point of control.
