- Award Winning Deduplication | patented deduplication reduces storage requirements by up to 90%.
- Industry Leading Scalability | from 1TB-360TB* capacity in a single virtual backup appliance with two options DXi V2000 and DXi V4000.
- Flexible Deployment | DXi V-Series can be deployed anywhere supporting remote and data center data protection services
DXi® V-Series is a virtual backup appliance that combines the power and performance of dedupe functionality with the simplicity and flexibility of virtual machines.
The DXi V-Series was designed from the beginning around virtualization. This 100% virtual appliance approach maintains high performance and scalability, usually reserved for physical appliances, enabling customers to get the most out of their investment in virtualized infrastructure. Whether you are looking to protect a fully virtualized environment or a mix of physical and virtual, the DXi V-Series can protect all data types.
Reduce Hardware Requirements
Virtualization technologies deliver the ability to scale your environment quickly and easily using existing capital equipment. Your data protection solution should be able to support the same while reducing overall expenses. The DXi V-Series deploys using existing virtual infrastructure, so no new servers or storage are required. With patented inline deduplication, DXi V-Series reduces storage footprint by as much as 90%.
Disaster Recovery And Cloud Baas For Any Size Organization
No matter what your data protection needs are today, or in the future, DXi V-Series has you covered. With single virtual appliance scalability from 1TB-480TB*, customers can deploy DXi V-Series in a wide range of uses. Whether you are looking for remote site, data center protection or looking to deploy Cloud Backup-as-a-Service, DXi V-Series enables this type of flexibility.
High Performance And Simple Scalability
DXi V-Series has changed the hardware performance and scale paradigm by providing up to 5TB/hr ingest and up to 480TB* of scale in a single virtual appliance model. Easily add more capacity to your DXi V-Series by updating the license file and deliver optimal performance by taking advantage of virtual machine technologies such as vMotion and vStorage Motion.

|Openstorage (OST) API||Presentations: Symantec Storage Servers and Logical Storage Units
Shares: 128 max
|DXi Accent software allows the backup server to collaborate in the deduplication process, offloading part of the data reduction activity so that only unique blocks are sent over the network to the DXi appliance. This hybrid approach provides faster backups over bandwidth-constrained LANs or WANs. DXi Accent can be enabled or disabled on a per-media server basis. Initial support for DXi Accent is provided through the NetBackup OpenStorage (OST) API.|
|Replication Included For All Units|
|Replication-compatible with DXi systems using NAS or OST presentations. Replication is asynchronous, one-to-one configurations; partitions in same unit act as replication source or target; units with partitions acting as replication targets can also support local backup; data is deduplicated and encrypted prior to transmission; file-based replication provides automated access to data at the target; CLI supports scripting/scheduling. Configurations support replication bandwidth control.|
