Storage maker Quantum has unveiled two disk-based backup appliances designed as tape replacements for Australian mid-sized office and datacentre use.

Quantum DXi3500
The DXi3500 and DXi5500, first announced globally in December, aim to offer cost-sensitive customers a solution to backup, recovery and archiving -- traditionally done using tape -- in one disk-based storage device.

With the DXi3500 offering eight hard drives and the larger 5500 up to 24, storage ranges from 250GB to 10TB. Quantum is claiming a fast data-transfer rate of between 120GB (DXi3500) and 800GB (DXi5500) per hour.

The DXi3500 and DXi5500 -- which replace the existing DX3500 and DX5500 models -- will be available locally by April, in a range of configurations with a starting price of AU$31,000. Data capacity ranges from 1.2TB to 10.8TB.
