The DXi6900-S is a high-performance deduplication solution with the power, scale, flexibility, and value to anchor an enterprisewide backup, disaster recovery (DR), and data protection strategy. The DXi6900-S combines the speed of Solid State Disks to accelerate metadata operations, with the high density and low power consumption of 8TB self-encrypting drives (SEDs). It delivers the broadest scale with the smallest footprint, minimizing operational expense and maximizing value and rates of return. The DXi6900-S can scale from 34TB to 544TB of usable capacity, in only 18U of rack space, allowing customers the flexibility to grow using capacity-on-demand licensing, while saving space and cutting costs in their data center. Built on Quantum’s DXi® software, the DXi6900-S provides up to 37TB/hour performance and includes the following software licenses in its base price: NAS, VTL, OST, deduplication, replication, path-to-tape (PTT) and DXi Accent™ software for hybrid deduplication. To integrate shortterm protection and long-term retention, the DXi6900-S features an integrated path-to-tape for both VTL and OST presentations, providing a direct link to physical tape libraries (creating offline copies) that bypasses the backup server but is fully integrated into leading backup applications’ management interface and media catalogs; therefore, offering an easy way to protect backup data against ransomware and self-replicating viruses.
