Quantum Upgrades Backup System

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced a significant feature release for its DXi7500 disk backup and remote replication systems, delivering a 22% increase in usable capacity and a set of software enhancements that provides new functionality for multi-site, multi-tier operations. These enhancements offer more replication options for improved data protection and additional choices for direct tape creation from disk, as well as enabling more effective centralized deduplication operation.

The new release increases the usable disk capacity of Quantums DXi7500 product line by more than 20% across both the midrange DXi7500 Express™ and the DXi7500 Enterprise models. The largest model now offers 220 TB of usable capacity—providing petabytes of deduplicated backup capacity—while the DXi7500 Express model still provides cost-effective protection for sites with as little as 3 TB of primary data. The additional capacity, provided by an upgrade from 750GB to 1 TB disk drives, is also accompanied by an upgrade to double-parity RAID 6 technology to increase overall data protection.
