Overview

Top rule

Dynamic Solutions International Virtual Tape Library (DSI VTL) iDSI620 offers robust data protection for our clients. It is designed to help you keep pace with your rapidly expanding data by utilizing state-of-the-art deduplication for your data storage.

With iDSI620, there is no disruption to your data protection as your capacity or performance needs change. You can simply add a storage license to your existing solution. Designed with growth in mind, the 620 series can increase in storage capacity through licensing of 1 TB increments (5 TB logical capacity). There is no reason to purchase more backup capacity than you need. iDSI620 VTLs may be paired with any DSI-qualified Fibre Channel external storage in your environment, allowing expansion of backup capacity into petabytes.

Description

Top rule

The iDSI620 series consists of a single model of iDSI620-EVD with a base memory configuration of 512 GB. This memory configuration is expandable to 2 TB with the initial release of iDSI620. There are also memory upgrade modules available for purchase in increments of 256 GB and 512 GB.

For those clients who do not have a supported virtualization environment, you are required to also purchase a hardware management console when purchasing the EVD-EV0 pair. If you have a supported virtualization environment, such as VMware® or Hyper-V, then a management console may be deployed as a virtual machine.

iDSI620 utilizes the industry's top standards for at-rest and in-flight encryption to ensure that your data is never exposed to outside threats, delivering confidence that your data is protected every step of the way. The management console provides secure management of all instances of the DSI620 products running across sites, clouds, and hybrid clouds in a web-based portal for clear visibility of health, status, and performance, as well as providing smart alerts, predictive analysis, and comprehensive reports for stakeholders.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
