Quantum Introduces DXi T-Series of Backup Products to Protect IT Systems

Quantum says that its new DXi T-Series all-flash platform is capable of ingest rates as high as 113 terabytes per hour to provide as much as 65 times faster backup rates and up to 13 times faster restore times than hard disk drives.

SAN JOSE, Calif.—Quantum Corporation, a manufacturer of end-to-end data management solutions, has announced DXi T-Series all-flash backup appliances to accelerate key data protection processes that help customers more effectively prepare, protect and recover critical IT operations from ransomware and other data risks.

The company states with data-intensive initiatives like AI increasing as a priority, coupled with the continuing and ever-present threat of ransomware, data protection is an essential service across all organizations. The DXi T-Series, Quantum asserts, expands its efficient backup data management platform with compact, all-inclusive, all-flash appliances that are easy to deploy and use across edge, core and cloud for fast, efficient protection and recovery.

“With continued improvements in density, cost, performance, and energy efficiency, QLC flash is the right choice for the next generation of data protection, especially for mission-critical relational and NoSQL databases, file systems and object stores that fuel data-intensive workflows, data lakes and AI pipelines,” says Sanam Mittal, vice president, DXi engineering for Quantum. “With all-flash DXi T-Series backup appliances, our customers can more efficiently protect their data and quickly recover operations in the face of a widespread ransomware attack. These new solutions expand Quantum’s all-flash portfolio beyond Quantum Myriad, StorNext and ActiveScale file and object storage solutions to include DXi T-Series appliances optimized for data protection and rapid ransomware recovery.”

DXi T-Series Applicable to a Wealth of IT-Based Systems

DXi backup appliances have long delivered simple, scalable backup, data protection according with disaster recovery across sites to give customers business continuity. With the DXi T-Series, Quantum boasts that it is introducing the industry’s first all-flash target backup appliance designed for edge deployments, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and mission-critical data storage infrastructure.

The DXi T-Series all-flash platform achieves ingest rates up to 113 terabytes per hour, providing up to 65 times faster backup rates and up to 13 times faster restore times compared to competitor appliance solutions based on hard disk drives. With DXi T-Series all-flash performance, Quantum points out that customers can perform more aggressive backup schedules for better recovery point objectives (RPO), more regularly validate backup data sets and test recovery procedures, analyze backups for malware using proactive and real-time virus scanning, and achieve faster recovery time objectives (RTO) in case of attack. The company also notes, the DXi T-Series accelerates data rehydration to speed up other key workflows, including test and dev for analytics and application development, e-discovery and compliance, and long-term archiving.

Scaling from 15 to 120 usable terabytes in an optimized 1U form factor, DXi T-Series appliances utilize Quantum’s patented data reduction technology to provide up to 70 times more efficient use of flash resources. With bundled replication, cloud tiering and immutability features plus a rich software ecosystem including Veeam, Veritas, and Commvault, DXi T-Series appliances seamlessly cooperate with DXi resources deployed across the edge, the core, and the cloud for end-to-end data protection.

“Our customers’ data protection requirements are rapidly evolving given the critical role data plays in their business operations,” adds Kevin Corcoran, vice president of sales for Storage IT Solutions, a Midwestern data management solutions provider. “AI and other data-rich use cases are giving rise to growing data sets, longer retention, and increasing data access. The DXi T-Series helps us address the need for fast, simple and secure backups, and most importantly, enables our customers to quickly recover their data when faced with a ransomware attack or other data disasters.”

DXi T-Series backup appliances are planned for release in Q2 2024.
