Data Deduplication

Beat Backup Challenges with Deduplication. Find out how proven technology from Quantum increases disk performance while reducing capacity needs by 90 percent or more.

As data volumes grow and budgets shrink, backup is often caught in the middle. If you're concerned with delayed backups, reliability of restores, remote protection, or virtual server backup, data deduplication technology from Quantum provides an affordable, easy-to-implement solution that saves you time and money.

Data Deduplication

Proven Technology Is the Solution

DXi disk-based deduplication from Quantum improves protection and reduces costs. Customers report an average 125 percent increase in backup performance, 87 percent fewer failed backup jobs, and typical disk capacity reductions of 90 percent or more—95 percent in virtual environments. Plus, you can reduce media purchase expenses by nearly one-half, cut overall backup management time by 63 percent, and report 97 percent average lower media recall costs—all with a typical four- to six-month payback on investment.

Integration Is the Best Strategy

While data deduplication is important, it's even more important to know how easy it is to integrate this technology into your existing backup. Deduplication solutions from Quantum offer simple NAS and virtual library interfaces, and built-in replication provides automated remote protection for satellite offices over existing WANs. They also link easily to tape systems, providing a single point of management and support. Best of all, these solutions work with all leading backup software, including Symantec's OpenStorage interface, for seamless integration into your existing backup system.

Why Choose Quantum for Deduplication?

Quantum has long been an innovator in disk-based backup and data deduplication technology. In fact, Quantum developed the pioneering patent for variable-length block data deduplication, providing data deduplication solutions that protect a full range of environments—from small distributed offices to the largest enterprise data centers.


Virtualization

Virtual Backup Protection Has Become a Reality. Protect your data across virtual and conventional environments.

If you're like most organizations, you're looking for ways to consolidate your physical infrastructure while reducing hardware, power, and cooling expenses. At the same time, you want to improve productivity. The solution? Integrate virtualization into your strategy. There are many advantages to virtual environments, and they all start with our DXi disk-based products with vmPRO software and vmPRO appliance solutions.

Virtualized Environments Create Unique Data Protection Challenges

As more corporate applications and data sets move to virtual machines, IT organizations increasingly confront the problem of how to integrate VM protection into their established backup, DR and retention processes. Most of the options usually offered have limitations. Backing up VMs as if they were physical servers can strain server and network resources, deploying VM-specific agents can be expensive, and adding new, VM-specific backup applications is complex, costly, and often doesn't support DR and long term retention policies already in place.

Virtualization

Why Choose Quantum for Virtual Server Backup?

Quantum's vmPRO solutions provide a unique view into your virtualized environment, and provide a platform for users to consolidate all of their backup, replication, and long-term retention across physical and virtual servers. Combined with Quantum's DXi disk based backup appliances, customers will have the industry's most effective deduplication rates, fastest backup performance and improved DR capabilities.

Quantum's vmPRO software provides a unique solution for the data center needing to integrate VM data protection. It works as a turnkey solution, or integrates with users' existing backup applications. Quantum's vmPRO software will simplify and accelerate backups, restores and DR protection for virtual machine environments while preserving existing investment in legacy backup applications.

Are you a small to medium business trying to manage virtual machine data protection? Do you have remote locations with dated or no data protection for those virtual machines? No problem. Quantum has the answer for that too. The vmPRO 4000 is a complete data protection solution that combines turnkey simplicity with advanced VM protection technology and market leading value. It's an all-in-one protection solution for virtual machines in SMBs and remote offices that includes both backup software and storage that leverages deduplication to retain months of data

Keep Business Operations Up to Speed

It can be a challenge deciding the best way to protect a virtual environment. But by simply implementing the DXi-Series and vmPRO software and vmPRO appliances, you easily enable rapid recovery from events like backup interruptions and data loss. And while remote replication can typically be expensive, deduplication makes it more affordable due to the reduction of transferred data. After all, the goal is to keep your business moving forward, without unnecessary complications.


Q-Cloud

Until now, datacenter managers wanting to protect data in the cloud had two basic options.

Either they had to choose storage array-based replication to and from the cloud that provided fast backup and disaster recovery, but made it extremely expensive to implement.

Q-Cloud

Or they've had to choose cloud-only solutions which were less costly to implement, but demanded a rip-and-replace approach and made the process of restores very slow.

Quantum's Cloud-based data protection technology platform changes all that. We're providing the best of breed – highly optimized, low-cost cloud-based data protection that is simple to deploy and provides integration to your existing tools and allows for efficient disaster recovery.

Q-Cloud provides the following:

  • Business-Class Cloud: Simplify backup and disaster recovery for physical and virtual environments.
  • Cost Efficiency: Business-Class data protection at consumer pricing.
  • Simple Integration: Integrates seamlessly with your existing solution with no modification required.
  • Peace of Mind: Security, simplicity, and reliability businesses require.
  • Lower Risk: Protect more of your data and for longer time.

Data Retention

Protect Your Data Throughout Its Life Cycle. From hours and days to months and years, it's important to have a tiered storage solution in place.

Not all data is created equal. While some information needs to be backed up and accessed immediately, other assets need to be retained for longer periods of time—especially with increasing regulatory requirements. And with shrinking budgets, it's important to integrate an efficient short- and long-term data retention strategy you can rely on.

Data Retention

The Best of Disk, Tape and Software

Quantum DXi disk-based backup with deduplication is ideal for fast backups and can reduce storage requirements by 90 percent or more. But when you need to store data for several years, Quantum Scalar® tape libraries are a smart long-term retention solution because of their low cost of ownership, encryption capabilities, portability for disaster recovery, and durability. Plus, you can simplify your data management with StorNext software that streamlines file access and archiving.

Low Environmental Impact

It's no surprise that power, cooling, and space requirements are key issues for your IT department. But when you leverage the right technologies, you can reduce costs easily. Deduplication helps lower costs with disk backup, and tape is ideal for storing data over long periods of time due to its automated management, scalability, and low power consumption. By implementing the right archiving technologies in your tiered storage environment, you can lower your storage costs even more.

Go Beyond a Single Strategy

Quantum believes that a single strategy isn't the best solution for your data's life cycle. Quantum's goal is to provide a combination of technologies—including disk, deduplication, tape, encryption, file system and archiving software—that solve your unique short- and long-term retention challenges.


Security

Comply with Confidence. See why data security is a crucial part of data protection for companies of all sizes.

If you're tasked with storing personal information from customers or employees, such as Social Security numbers, birth dates, financial records, health records, or other personal information, you know that securing that data is a priority, especially with more data needing to be retained for longer periods of time, and with stricter compliance regulations in place.

Security

Data Encryption as a Means to Compliance

Since 2005 there have been more than 260 million individual records lost, with many of these records containing sensitive business data or individuals' personal identification information. That's why many nations have established legislation requiring businesses to take extra steps in protecting individuals' data. And as more areas adopt this type of legislation, you'll need to consider implementing a smart strategy such as data encryption technology from Quantum.

Removing the Complexity of Data Security

Integrating data encryption into your existing backup, recovery, and archive processes doesn't have to be a challenge with Quantum. DXi-Series disk-based backup systems and Scalar® tape libraries support cost-effective data encryption, and Scalar Key Manager allows you to easily run the entire encryption process from a single screen—all of which provide simple and affordable security for your most critical asset: your data.

Why Choose Quantum?

Quantum's solutions remove the complexity of securing your data. Our vast experience in backing up large and midsized environments has given us the expertise to also bring secure technologies to smaller companies. Our backup solutions support data encryption that is cost effective and integrated with our DXi-Series disk-based backup systems and Scalar tape libraries.
