Quantum has launched a new software with advanced features and capabilities for DXi backup appliances to improve backup, restore system performance and monitor systems remotely utilizing cloud-based analytics, the company reported on Tuesday.
"Backup efficiency continues to be a vital priority for Enterprises seeking to make the most of their datacenter resources while protecting increasingly distributed environments. These significant new software feature enhancements optimize performance with bandwidth and interface improvements, enabling DXi appliances to integrate much more tightly with backup applications," said Bruno Hald, general manager of Secondary Storage, Quantum.
Quantum’s DXi 4.1 software will integrate Veeam Backup & Replication v10 to enable faster synthetic full backups in Veeam environments to increase efficiencies for enterprises. Quantum’s software will leverage Veeam Backup and Replication v10 Fast Clone technology to accelerate synthetic full backup performance.
The partnership will advance the creation of synthetic full backups, and reduce disk space requirements and load on storage devices. Quantum DXi systems will also connect to Quantum's Cloud-Based Analytics (CBA) software, a cloud-based services tool that enables end-to-end integrated communication between Quantum systems and Quantum product and service experts.
CBA software will enable administrators to monitor system health remotely through a secure cloud-based portal. The addition will provide administrators with a central portal to monitor and track system and environment health and statistics, providing a proactive view into backup environments.
"Quantum DXi continues to develop as a valued tool for protecting vital Enterprise data. The combination of Veeam Backup & Replication v10 and Quantum DXi 4.1 software really moves data protection a step forward with a simple, flexible, and reliable solution for hybrid-cloud environments," said David Harvey, VP of Strategic Alliances, Veeam.
