DXi-Series Backup Appliances
High-performance, scalable backup appliances for data protection, cyber and disaster recovery.
Efficient Data Protection is More Critical Than Ever
The requirements for protecting data across the Enterprise continue to get more complex. Our customers are managing massive data growth across databases, virtual environments, and unstructured data sets. They need to meet or exceed service level agreements (SLAs) to the business, both recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO), with budgets that aren’t growing nearly as fast as storage requirements. And data protection itself has become more demanding, with requirements to protect against operational issues, protect data across sites, provide solutions for disaster recovery and against ransomware and other forms of cyber attacks.
DXi-Series Delivers Efficient Data Protection with a Purpose-Built Design
The DXi® series backup appliances provide a uniquely powerful solution for meeting your backup needs, SLA requirements, and cyber recovery efforts. This means fast access to your data, faster deduplication, and scalable solutions for remote offices up to the largest enterprise data centers.
DXi offers the industry’s most efficient variable-length deduplication, which minimizes disk requirements and dramatically shrinks your replication bandwidth needs, and your overall footprint. Plus, DXi’s high-speed disk backup and data recovery capabilities, now with Secure Snapshot capabilities, enable you to reduce your recovery time and your backup window—plus, you save on resources.
DXi appliances support multiple protocols including NAS, OST, VTL, and Veeam Data Mover Service, and are integrated and certified with a broad range of leading backup applications.
Reduce Backup Costs with Efficient Data Reduction
All DXi appliances leverage Quantum’s variable-length deduplication algorithm to maximize data reduction, minimize disk storage, and minimize WAN traffic when replicating.
Maximize Production System Availability
DXi appliances provide high-performance ingest of up to 99 TB/hr throughput using DXi Accent™ with restore capabilities for all leading backup applications.
Scale Capacity with Ease
DXi appliances make it easy to scale capacity more linearly as your data grows, often simply via a license key, and in more granular increments than other solutions.
Reduce Data Center Power and Cooling
DXi appliances deliver the most efficient design in the market, with best-in-class storage densities that enable customers to protect their data with fewer disks, which means less rack space, less power, and less cooling.

Deduplication Strategy Cuts Backup in Half & Provides Instant Restores at Half the Price
"In the U.S., where the backups used to take 30 hours... the daily backups are now completed in only 14 hours—including all the databases, records, and VMs. And that... normally includes offsite DR protection."
