Disk-based backup systems are the next step in the evolution of data protection. With Quantum's patent-pending Optyon™ In-line Data Compression, the DX-Series is the first and only open system disk-based virtual tape library to offer hardware based compression! The innovative DX-Series systems emulate a tape library and seamlessly integrate into existing backup architectures without any changes to existing processes.  The DX-Series complements tape libraries by allowing them to focus on archive operations for disaster recovery and regulatory compliance.  Backup, restore, and archiving operations can now occur more quickly and more often – resulting in greater backup confidence and overall data protection.
