Quantum Corp., a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, on Wednesday says that it has significantly increased the storage density and power savings in its DXi8500 appliances, creating the industry’s most efficient disk backup and deduplication solution for enterprise customers.
The DXi8500 now incorporates 3 TB disk drives to deliver 50 percent greater storage density, 42 percent more power savings and 25 percent higher performance, offering the smallest footprint and the highest value of any enterprise disk backup solution available. In addition, the new DXi8500 encrypts data at rest without impacting performance, just one of several data security enhancements Quantum also announced today.
Taken together, the DXi8500 updates and security enhancements are designed to help customers improve data protection efficiencies while meeting increasingly demanding service level agreements (SLAs) and security needs.
“Keeping data secure from creation to deletion has never been more challenging or more important to our customers,” noted Daniel Furth, chief technical officer, StorageHawk. “Federal government customers have particularly stringent security requirements, and we think the Secure File Shred feature will be very appealing to them.”
