Catalogic DPX vStor appliances are cost-effective hardware solutions that let you quickly deploy a new DPX infrastructure or add secondary storage to your existing DPX enterprise.

The appliances run the Catalogic vStor backup operating system based on the highly scalable open-source ZFS file system. vStor offers platform-native snapshots that are integrated with DPX block-level backups for instant data and system recovery.

In addition, vStor provides data reduction via both data deduplication and compression. Replication is included, allowing you to easily send backup images off-site to another appliance. Tape export is available via the on-board SAS port, or users can add an optional fibre channel card to the appliance.

Backup management is provided by Catalogic DPX, an industry-standard backup platform with a wide range of coverage for applications and operating systems. DPX features both agent-based and agentless backups. For full details on DPX functionality, visit the DPX product page.
