India, October 13, 2023 – Quantum Corporation (NASDAQ: QMCO), the leader in solutions for unstructured data, today announced new bundled offerings for organization-wide data protection based on Quantum DXi-Series Backup Appliances, the industry’s most efficient backup data management platform. With continued data growth, the increasing value of data, and the constant threat of ransomware, customers must be forever vigilant and adhere to backup and recovery best practices that include multiple data copies and offsite protection. With DXi® Edge-Core-Cloud Bundles, customers can easily and cost-effectively deploy a simple, comprehensive data protection fabric across their in-house infrastructure and cloud-resident resources to protect their data—and their business operations– from harm.
DXi-Series appliances are available as both physical and virtual appliances, providing enterprise scale and flexible deployment options. With built-in replication and newly announced DXi Cloud Share tiering, DXi appliances may be deployed across edge sites, central data centers, and the public cloud, acting as a co-operating set of resources to protect data wherever it lives. With patented data reduction features, DXi dramatically reduces storage and networking costs of stored backups, replicated copies, and cloud archives, providing up to 70* times the efficiency of other backup solutions. With flexible deployment options, a complete set of enterprise software features, and a rich backup software ecosystem, DXi-Series solutions fit well in small implementations to the most complex enterprise environments.
To simplify purchasing and deployment, DXi Edge-Core-Cloud Bundles are now available with all the components customers need to easily deploy the solution across their enterprise. The bundles include pre-configured physical and virtual appliances and are available in four standard capacity sizes—Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large—in support of multiple edge locations, central data centers, and cloud-based archiving targets. Logical capacities range from 400 terabytes up to 228 petabytes.
“Quantum’s end-to-end platform empowers customers to address their unstructured data needs across the entire data lifecycle. Protecting and preserving data efficiently is a key requirement,” said Sanam Mittal, vice president, DXi engineering and product management, for Quantum. “With the new DXi Edge-Core-Cloud bundles, customers get a cost effective, fully modern data protection architecture designed to efficiently manage and protect backup data copies across their entire enterprise and help ensure their most valuable asset—their data—is safe.”
“Our customers today are looking for cost-effective solutions to protect their data across their entire hybrid cloud environment,” says Glenn Wallin, senior sales representative of IT solution provider, NordStar Group. “DXi Edge-Core-Cloud bundles deliver incredible value across organizations of all sizes and complexity. With built-in replication and cloud tiering based on DXi’s patented data deduplication engine, these bundles dramatically reduce the overall software, storage and networking costs required for us to deliver complete, affordable, end-to-end protection.”
The new DXi Edge-Core-Cloud bundles are available immediately. DXi Cloud Share is available as part of the DXi 4.9 software release, planned for release in December 2023. For more information, visit www.quantum.com/dxi.
