Overall Satisfaction with Quantum DXi Series

We use the DXi for the D2D backend disk for our backup solution (NetBackup). We have implemented all protocols allowing us to backup our open systems data and EPIC. We have also configured a couple of NAS shares to allow us to run SQL maintenance jobs to the DXi. The DXi is also configured to write to our IBM tape library as a longer term storage option.
  • A perfect solution for D2D backups. We are seeing a large savings with the de-duplication piece.
  • Very versatile device. We like being able to use any backup protocol we need to for the many diverse jobs we have in the medical industry.
  • Interface is simple and easy to use.
  • We had some expansion issues with the DXi 8500s and needed to implement a secondary DXi6902 system to allow for the expansion required.
The only aleternative looked at prior to the DXi was ExGrid, while both are great options the DXi offered a little more versatility and the support has been terrific.
As a backend disk solution for NetBackup it works perfectly, and is easy to install and get up and running.
