SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today highlighted its significant market momentum in disk-based backup and deduplication, as both existing and new customers increasingly deploy the company's DXi® appliances to address their changing data protection requirements. In the first nine months of Quantum's fiscal year (April 1-Dec. 31, 2016), overall product and related service revenue from disk backup sales grew 14 percent over the same period a year earlier, with revenue from enterprise DXi products up 62 percent.

According to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Purpose-Built Backup Appliance Tracker, Quantum was also among the top five largest deduplication providers and one of only two companies in the top five that generated year-over-year growth in the third calendar quarter of 2016. In addition, Storage magazine/ has selected the DXi6900-S as a finalist for the 2016 Products of the Year awards in the Data Backup Hardware category. Quantum's deduplication leadership is further reflected in its broad and expanding customer base around the world, which includes numerous Fortune 500 companies and other organizations such as Hawaii State Department of Health, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, Oxford University Press, OSI Food, The Salvation Army, University of Bristol, University of San Diego and West Australian News.

Enterprises Coping With Growth Adopt DXi6900-S With Flash Technology
One of the recent drivers of Quantum's deduplication market momentum is the DXi6900-S. Introduced only five months ago, the new appliance is designed for large, multi-site data protection environments, where customers are confronting the challenges of backing up mission-critical databases and other digital assets under increasingly tighter backup windows and more demanding business requirements.

By leveraging SSDs for metadata operations, the DXi6900-S delivers ultra-fast ingest, read, replication and space reclamation performance. It was also the first deduplication appliance to incorporate 8TB self-encrypting drives, providing the highest density backup available — up to 544TB (useable) in 18U of rack space, or 10PB of logical storage at a 20:1 deduplication ratio. In addition, the DXi6900-S is significantly more efficient than other deduplication appliances, consuming 50 percent less power than competitive offerings. All these advantages have resulted in quick customer adoption of DXi6900-S and reinforced the overall strength of Quantum's DXi product line.
