Quantum Scales Down for De-Dupe Ramp-Up

Vendor unveils hardware for smaller data centers
Quantum ramped up its de-duplication strategy this week, unveiling its first common management software and touting entry-level data center hardware.

First up is Quantums 9-Tbyte DXi7500 Model 9, which is designed for smaller data centers, according to Steve Whitner, Quantum’s product manager.

”This scales from 9 terabytes [of usable capacity] to 180 terabytes,” he says. “This gives customers broader reach, especially in the small and medium data center environments -- it allows people to start low and grow larger.”

Quantum has essentially cut its standing DXi 7500 offerings in half, according to the exec, who notes that the vendor’s smallest DXi7500 before today started at 18 terabytes of usable capacity.

Pricing for a typical configuration of the DXi7500 Model 9, which is available now, is around $135,000.
