ESG Lab Test Results Verify Quantum DXI-Series Delivers on De-Deduplication and More

  • 01 June, 2007 14:31

<p>Quantum today unveiled a new Validation Report authored by ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group) Lab focused on Quantum’s DXi-Series disk backup and replication appliances.</p>
<p>According to analysts at ESG, the kind of data de-duplication technology in the Quantum DXi-Series appliances will be one of this decade’s most important new data protection advances.</p>
<p>ESG Lab Validation Report highlights from the Quantum DXi-Series testing include:</p>
<p>** Industry leading appliance-based performance: ESG Lab validated Quantum’s DXi-Series performance of up to 290 GB/hr. for the DXi3500 and 800 GB/hr. for the DXi5500. ESG Lab noted peak DXi3500 multi-stream performance exceeded 356 GB/hr, well above Quantum’s stated performance specification.</p>
<p>** Practical and efficient remote replication for disaster recovery: ESG Lab tested multiple disaster recovery scenarios and verified efficient and reliable, bi-directional backup and recovery of data over a WAN between DXi-Series appliances situated hundreds of miles apart.</p>
<p>** Quick and simple integration without changes to existing backup processes: ESG Lab was able to perform backups smoothly and easily using Veritas NetBackup and the DXi-Series virtual tape library (VTL) interface only ten minutes after beginning configuration. Emulation of library functions and software compatibility were flawless.</p>
<p>** Flexibility to present multiple interfaces through a single appliance: ESG Lab successfully performed simultaneous backups, de-duplicating data to a single DXi3500 across Fibre Channel VTL, iSCSI VTL and NAS (CIFS) interfaces.</p>
<p>** Data reduction capabilities of up to 50:1: ESG Lab verified the ability of DXi-Series appliances to produce very large scale data reduction, using production data sets to model a 50:1 de-duplication advantage over conventional disk backup systems in just over a month of backup events.</p>
