Quantum NDX-8 NAS 1U Rack 8TB Windows Storage Server Gigabit Ethernet
The Quantum NDX-8 series NAS products for backup, disaster recovery and primary storage solve the problem of out of control backup data growth for the SMB. They are the first products to offer deduplication and 8TB of storage at a price point small businesses can afford. All four models offer best-in-class performance, featuring enterprise-class hard drives, Intel Core i3 (Sandy Bridge) processors, 4GB of RAM and Microsoft Windows Storage server 2008 R2 operating system. Products are available in tower or 1U rack configurations with or without client side deduplication data protection software. Both configurations are customer upgradable offering a single free PCI-e slot, and RAM expansion capability.
Quantum NDX-8 NAS storage is designed for primary storage and is the perfect complement to the NDX-8d as the hardware and Windows Storage server OS are identical, allowing for seamless integration and unsurpassed compatibility in your networked environment.
The Quantum NDX-8 Series NAS storage units provide simplified data protection for small businesses. The NDX-8d comes preconfigured with DATASTOR Shield data deduplication software and performs an agentless client backup, meaning there is no software to install on the clients being protected either. In addition, customer's save up to 75% on backup software licensing and support using DATASTOR Shield. Deduplication provides up to 90% reduction in backup related network traffic and data stored. The disaster recovery options include replication to a 2nd NDX-8d or offsite to a Quantum RDX 8000. In addition, the NDX-8 series units use the Windows Storage Server operating system allowing customers to install Windows based applications like Microsoft Exchange directly on the NDX-8 something not possible with Linux based NAS devices.
