The DXi6900 and DXi6900-S serve as the core of multi-site enterprise data protection solutions. The DXi6900-S provides industry-best density and delivers ultra-fast performance by leveraging SSDs for metadata operations. Both models are powered by StorNext, the world’s most powerful file system, and use variable-length deduplication to maximize data reduction and offer unique capacity-on-demand scalability.
Powered by the world’s most powerful file system, StorNext, the DXi6900 Series delivers up to 37 TB/hr. Built to natively support flash technologies, StorNext provides the fastest ingest performance, regardless of capacity points of your DXi. Inside architecture allows for unique capabilities such as separating the metadata and content data with metadata residing on SSD disk for faster operations. DXi’s patented variable-length deduplication maximizes 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 disaster recovery.
DXi6900-S uses 8 TB hard drives to reduce footprint and power consumption by 50% versus competitive deduplication appliances. You can deploy up to 544 TBs (usable) in only 18U! Benefit from low-power and high-density drives without the drawbacks. DXi6900 Series is the only inline deduplication appliance using Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology to deliver faster rebuilds with lower performance impact than traditional RAID 6.
Scale on your terms DXi offers license-based, cost-effective smaller capacity increments to manage data growth with little to no downtime. Each expansion module comes fully populated, you can activate more TB with a simple license key. Need more than one backup application/presentation simultaneously? DXi provides a global deduplication and presentation of NAS/OST/VTL/Path-to-Tape/RMAN/DXi Accent™ and Veeam Data Mover Service. With DXi6900 Series, you can even run your backup server or a proxy server as a Virtual Machine inside the appliance, with no need for extra physical servers.
DXi 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). DXi also offers an easy way to protect backup 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. End to end: simplify your architecture by using less backup and proxy servers
Offering the industry’s most comprehensive and intuitive management tools for hundreds of devices enables precise business decision-making and speeds resolution time, even from your mobile device. Your team is able to spend less time on data protection and more time on strategic projects.
