Quantum's new archive products as the Artico NAS appliance (pictured), a new Lattus configuration using 6TB drives, and a joint certified system combining Quantum DXi appliances with Rocket Arkivio Autostor software that can be used for both backup and archive data simultaneously.
The Artico intelligent NAS appliance provides a flexible, low-cost entry point for archive that is scalable to petabytes of data, according to Quantum officials.
It uses StorNext 5 data management policies and Rocket's Arkivio Autostor data migration tools to place data on the right storage tier, whether that's on-premise or in the cloud.
Lattus object storage is now offered in a new S30 configuration using 6TB disk drives. This is said to reduce the cost per TB by 15% compared to S20 nodes.
Quantum's DXi4700 and DXi6900 deduplication appliances can now be used with Arkivio Autostor for simultaneous backup and archive functionality from one appliance.
The combination is said to help customers save in excess of 60% on total storage costs for each TB of unstructured data that is moved from primary storage to archive.
"We're seeing more data centers reaching a tipping point where their old approaches to backup and archive have simply been overwhelmed by unstructured data growth," said Quantum senior vice president for product operations Robert Clark.
"When data is intelligently tiered to archive storage, the need for primary and backup storage can be reduced, dramatically improving operational efficiency while cutting a customer's overall storage costs."
