Quantum Corporation has released a new virtual backup appliance, the DXi V5000, along with the DXi V5000 Community Edition making it easier to download and use Quantum DXi deduplication technology.
This new offering is ideally suited for data protection at remote sites, edge environments, and for small businesses looking to efficiently back up and protect their critical data.
“Our customers are looking for simpler ways to protect their data, especially protection at remote sites and the edge,” says Bruno Hald, Vice President and General Manager, Secondary Storage for Quantum. “The DXi V5000 addresses this challenge by taking Quantum DXi deduplication technology and packaging it as a simple to download and use a virtual machine. By introducing the Community Edition, we now can get this technology into the hands of as many users as possible so they can more efficiently backup and protect their critical data.”
Quantum is also introducing the DXi V5000 Community Edition, a free version of the DXi V5000 that scales to 5 Terabytes (TB) in size.
Users can download the Community Edition in minutes, use it immediately upon download and can later upgrade to the DXi V5000 by purchasing a DXi software subscription license.
The DXi V5000 has the same features and capabilities as a physical DXi appliance, deployed as a virtual machine.
A common use case is using the DXi V5000 as a virtual backup appliance at a remote site, then replicating deduplicated data to a core data center so that organizations can protect their data across sites, and between edge and core.
