For some environments it may be!
While many customers are figuring that out, the DXi6900 proudly received the Silver Award in the Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com 2014 Product of the Year Backup Hardware category, one of the most respected publications in the storage industry. The industry recognition comes just as industry analyst ESG Lab released the results of their recent lab testing, validating DXi6900’s performance claims.
Both the award and lab validation are a big deal for us and reinforce what we’ve already been hearing from our happy customers: DXi6900 is a high performance appliance that is very well suited to the needs of mid-size and enterprise-scale companies as well as managed service providers. Because the DXi6900 has proven itself as a must have for IT departments looking to reduce overall storage costs while leveraging data protection solutions with best-in-class deduplication rates, having such a good “deduplicator” translates into:
- Significantly lower storage space requirements
- More efficient disk space use, and
- Less data sent across a WAN for remote backups, replication, and disaster recovery
Many of our customers’ environments achieved 70% to 90% reduction in needed capacity backups, significantly increasing their ROI vs competitive solutions and shortening the payback period for their DXi investment. What’s not to love?
At Quantum we don’t like to rest on the laurels. We worked hard to make our newest deduplication appliances a big step forward from the previous generation in terms of performance and scalability. And now we have big plans for the coming months, including a new use for DXi that could dramatically reduce your primary storage costs, leveraging Amazon’s cloud for deduplicated storage for DR, and lots more.
How much can you save in storage costs? Contact your Quantum rep today, you’ll be surprised.
