The DXi4700 serves as the core of data protection solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses and remote site protection for enterprise projects. The DXi4700 provides high performance and capacity-on-demand scalability and can serve as an end-to-end solution becoming a hyperconverged deduplication appliance that can run backup applications as a VM.
Powered by the world’s most powerful file system, StorNext, the DXi4700 Series delivers up to 16.9 TB/hr regardless of your capacity points. For faster restores, StorNext detects random small I/O’s and tune latency, enabling you to support features such as Veeam Instant VM Recovery directly from deduplicated backups! Plus, DXi’s patented variable-length deduplication optimizes data reduction, maximizing replication across the WAN. DXi replication includes snapshot-based, file-based and cartridge based deduplication, providing the industry's best granularity to improve replication.
DXi4700 can scale from 5 TB to over 135 TB with Quantum’s unique Capacity-on-Demand approach. Each expansion module comes fully populated and you can activate more TB with a simple license key. DXi4700 offers end-to-end encryption, in-flight and at rest, using self-encrypting drives (military-grade encryption with no performance impact, non-SED drives available upon request).
WAN efficient replication makes it faster and less expensive to move data between sites for offsite backups. DXi also offers an easy way to protect backups data against ransomware and self-replicating viruses by providing a direct link to physical tape libraries (Path-to-Tape or PTT) that bypasses the backup server but is fully integrated into leading backup applications’ management interface and media catalogs, therefore your backups are offline on tape and can’t be encrypted by any ransomware.
DXi4700 can be used as a hyperconverged deduplication appliance by running your backup application as a VM directly on the appliance. Dynamic Application Environment (DAE) provides a virtual machine environment in which you can install backup software. Once licensed, the DAE feature allows applications installed in the VM to run in a completely independent environment, no need for an external backup server or proxy server.
With the Quantum solution, the time needed for backup has been reduced by a factor of ten.Dietmar Wieber
Deduplication was a critical technology for what we wanted to do, and we knew Quantum was a pioneer in that technology and had an extremely powerful set of deduplication solutions.Danial Thomas
The Scalar i500 tape library and the DXi6700 deduplication appliance cope with the uncontrolled growth of our databases quite easily. Scalable, high-performance, and easy to use, they are the perfect storage solution.Thomas Wendt
Our experience over the last year is that Veeam and DXi work very well together.Tom O’Farrell
The DXi systems and their replication support Veeam just as well as they did Backup Exec and they make it easy to use the same appliance for different apps.Steve Sakamoto
We got a smart solution for storing much more data for less money than others, one that’s easy to manage, and that requires no daily work at all. There’s nothing for us to do anymore…We just put this in and it works. It just works, which is nice.Falko Schmudlach
When you think disk backup, there’s only one name in the frame: Quantum. Serco has enjoyed an excellent 12 year relationship with Quantum, and we trust their technology, people, and product road map.Duncan Smith
In the U.S., where the backups used to take 30 hours. . . the daily backups are now completed in only 14 hours—including all the databases, records, and VMs. And that... normally includes offsite DR protection.Rob Williams
