For many companies, traditional backup isn't keeping up with growing data. Backups and restores take too long, are hard to manage, and cost too much. While disk can boost backup speeds, conventional arrays fill up too quickly and don't provide DR protection. Data deduplication on disk addresses both issues, drastically reducing capacity and bandwidth requirements. Quantum's DXi4500 backup appliances with deduplication provide an affordable and easy way to speed up backup and reduce data protection costs. Typical DXi customers see 2 to 3 times faster backup, disk-speed restores, and achieve fast return on their investment. They decrease disk capacity needs by 90% or more, reduce backup management time by nearly two-thirds, and dramatically lower their use of removable media.
