ESG Lab Validation Highlights

ESG Lab performed hands-on evaluation and testing of the Quantum DXi6900 in Quantum’s Englewood, Colorado lab facilities. Following is a summary of the results:

  • Enterprise Performance

    ESG Lab validated that Quantum’s DXi6902 was able to sustain 16.3TB per hour of multithreaded enterprise backup throughput. A single Quantum DXi6902 disk backup system could be used to protect more than 130TB of data in an eight-hour shift using less than 20TB of disk space and restore individual files in a matter of seconds. ESG Lab found that the StorNext® file system's intelligent metadata management, storage optimized for balanced performance, data integrity checking, and Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology all work together to improve availability and performance simultaneously.
  • Most Efficient Variable-length deduplication

    Quantum DXi® variable-length deduplication was able to provide 85% data reduction for both structured and unstructured data, using full and incremental backup schedules, compared to just 50% reduction for fixed-length deduplication. This translates to easier integration into an organization’s existing backup environment and substantial disk capacity and network bandwidth savings in large environments.
  • Security & Encryption

    The DXi6900 supports data-in-flight and at-rest encryption and secure file share to meet the most stringent data security requirements. Quantum uses hardware-based encryption to eliminate performance impact.
  • Simple, Non-disruptive Scalability

    With “pay-as-you-grow” scalability, capacity can be added with a simple license key reducing complexity of capacity and performance planning.
  • ISV Integration

    The DXi6900 integrates with Symantec NetBackup AIR, which can reduce the time needed to return to business in the event of a disaster and improve restore service level agreements by tightening recovery time objectives (RTOs).
  • Rich Monitoring and Reporting

    Quantum Vision®, available for desktop and mobile devices, provides insight into the status and health of both disk and tape, enabling users to more easily manage remote sites and multiple technologies through the entire data lifecycle.
  • Cloud-Enabled

    The DXi6900 works seamlessly with Quantum Q-Cloud™ Protect to enable organizations to leverage a cloud-based data protection and DR service that uses Quantum encrypted, deduplicated replication to optimize off-site protection and recovery for as little as $.01 per GB per month.
  • Native VM Protection

    ESG Lab used Quantum vmPRO™ Software to seamlessly protect heterogeneous virtual machines in branch and remote offices, to back up and restore files in their native format, and replicate their backups to a DXi6902 in a central data center.

With the DXi6900,
Quantum enables customers to retain more data for fast and reliable restores and longer retention periods while minimizing impact on backups, while its tiered storage approach ensures data resides on storage matched to its value to the business. Quantum's DXi6900 Series offers a wide variety of capacity configurations with performance to satisfy the most stringent SLAs, reducing the need for performance tuning or planning. Comprehensive infrastructure management and analytics provided by Quantum ties the global environment together into a single, manageable entity. In sum, Quantum continues to excel at providing flexible, robust, and high-performance data protection.
