STORAGE VENDOR Qauntum has announced it NDX-8 network attached storage (NAS) and RDX 8000 removable disk library.
The NDX-8 offers 8TB of capacity along with built-in backup software and deduplication technology. The RDX 8000 is a backup and disaster recovery system in one that also offers 8TB of capacity.
Rob Clark, SVP of disk and tape data protection at Quantum said, "Quantum's new NDX appliances and RDX libraries provide a total data protection solution that is affordable to implement and simple to use. Along with our DXi deduplication systems, this expansion of our portfolio enables us to offer best-in-class disk-based technology solutions that address an even broader range of customer data protection needs."
The NDX-8 can replicate data to a second NDX device or move data offsite using the RDX 8000. Qauntum said that both products will be forward compatible with future cloud backup services.
Some benefits of the NDX-8 are that apparently it is 75 per cent less expensive and less complicated because of its integrated hardware and software and offers up to 90 per cent reduction in backup related network traffic and data stored.
The Quantum NDX-8 series with data deduplication costs $5,139, and $4,029 without it. The RDX 8000 with data deduplication is $4,999, and $3,889 without it. µ
