For enterprise customers who want multi-site, multi-tier protection that is secure and easy to manage for fast on-site restore and long-term retention, the DXi6800 series is an extensible deduplication appliance that offers the most scalable, highest performing, greatest density and lowest power disk backup and deduplication solution. Unlike other deduplication solutions, the DXi6800 series provides certainty that all your data is secure and available when you need it most! ano matter your architecture, scale, or location.
The DXi6802 appliance provides deduplication without compromise, combining the broadest scalability and highest performance with comprehensive security, improved data availability, and unique extensibility. The DXi6802 provides maximum flexibility and value for investment protection in evolving backup environments.
Direct tape creation included
Direct tape creation - physical tape can be written in background over dedicated Fiber Channel connections without using media server or backup SAN. DXi6802 units support direct to tape operation under Symantec NetBackup and Backup Exec, OST (Netbackup), EMC Networker, Oracle Secure Backup, and Atempo Time Navigator with full control of the tape creation process and tracking of media barcodes by the application.
Data-at-rest Encryption uses Self Encrypting Drive (SED) technology to secure all data stored on the DXi6802. This includes file data and metadata, configuration files, and the DXi software and operating system. When data-at-rest encryption is enabled, all hard drives in the DXi are paired with the disk controllers using encryption keys. After this, accessing data on the drives requires the same encryption keys and controllers that were used to write the data. This ensures that a drive that is physically removed from the DXi cannot be read using another system or device.
DXi advanced reportingProduct Highlights
DXi advanced reporting, which is included on all DXi appliances, sets standards for onboard intelligence by giving users a detailed view of internal appliance operations and provides them with years of backup and replication data for extended trend analysis. DXi Advanced Reporting reduces administration time, improves operations, streamlines performance tuning, and helps users maximize the value of their DXi appliances.
- Pay-as-you-grow scalability through Capacity-on-Demand (CoD) provides simple, predictable, and easy-to-install storage capacity
- Broad capacity range through the use of 3 TB drives delivers greater storage density with reduced power consumption
- Comprehensive data security through data-at-rest encryption via self-encrypting drives (SEDs) protects against data breach from physical removal of disk drives
- Improved data availability with the addition of hot spare drive capacity enables continued backup and restore operations without unplanned system degradation
