Quantum Delivers Industry’s Highest Performing, Most Scalable Virtual Backup and DeDuplication Appliance


SAN JOSE, Calif.,  – Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced general availability of the 

DXi® V4000 virtual backup and deduplication appliance, delivering industry-leading performance at 4.9TB per hour ingest and scalability of up to 24 TB of usable capacity (360 TB logical capacity) in a single virtual instance. The DXi V4000 extends the DXi V-Series family of virtual backup appliances, continuing Quantum’s advancement of data protection technologies developed for virtualized environments, and is particularly well-suited to managed service providers offering cloud-based backup-as-a-service (BaaS).
Even as IT departments increasingly adopt virtualization, backup appliances have typically been deployed in an all-hardware appliance model. The DXi V-Series provides full-featured deduplication capabilities in a 100% virtual, 100% software appliance with the performance, efficiency and scalability that physical appliances offer. This approach eliminates the need to deploy additional hardware to protect both physical and virtual data, with the efficiency of a virtual machine that scales seamlessly and easily.
Key Advantages of DXi V4000
The DXi V4000 provides deduplication and replication for any DXi physical or virtual appliance, as well as Q-Cloud, Quantum’s cloud backup and disaster recovery solution. It offers a simple, native, all-virtual data protection solution that works with existing customer environments and provides unique advantages beyond those inherent in its all-software approach:
  • Highest performance virtual deduplication available: With up to 4.9TB/hr inline deduplication, DXi V4000 offers 10X the performance of the nearest competitor, without sacrificing efficiency or needing to deploy additional hardware.
  • Designed specifically for virtual environments: Because the DXi V4000 is a virtual machine, distributed VMDKs take advantage of VM thin disk provisioning capabilities, reducing the deployment’s impact on resources and overall costs.
  • Flexible and affordable: Capable of supporting a range of use cases and affordably priced with predictable linear pricing for capacity-on-demand, DXi V4000 makes virtual backup and disaster recovery a viable option for any organization.
Foundation for Cloud BaaS
DXi V4000 is well-suited to cloud backup-as-a-service implementations, offering best-in-class data reduction technology with deduplication rates of up to 50-to-1 or more. This built-in data reduction lowers bandwidth and cloud capacity requirements, increasing overall cost savings. Like the rest of the DXi V-Series, the DXi V4000 works with all leading backup applications and offers secure encryption for data at rest and in flight. Customers also get the convenience and efficiency of a full on-site copy of their data, combined with the peace of mind gained by having an additional copy in the cloud. Service providers or central IT organizations can rapidly deploy DXi V4000 and expand capacity on-demand without sacrificing performance, while keeping costs aligned with resource usage. In addition, the DXi V4000 can easily be combined with vmPRO™ virtual backup software for a data protection solutionthat offers massive data reduction while retaining VM data in native format, providing a path to the cloud. The complementary products are part of Quantum’s portfolio of solutions optimized specifically for virtualized environments.
Users interested in a risk-free path to virtual data protection can download Quantum’s free 
DXi V1000 full-featured virtual deduplication appliance to store up to 15 TB of deduplicated data. In addition, a full-featured, free 1 TB version of vmPRO software is also available for download.
