Quantum Scalar i6

Scalar Products -> i6000 | * i6 * | i3 | SuperLoader


Best-in-Class Storage Density
Saves valuable data center footprint with up to 12PB in a single 19-inch rack.

Extended Data Life Management (EDLM)
Ensures stored data remains readable with automated integrity checks.

Active Vault
Secure in-library vaulting saves cost, increases security, and simplifies access to vaulted content.

Capacity-on-Demand Growth
Simplifies growth by scaling quickly and easily, without disruption.

Proactive Monitoring and Diagnostics
Maximizes library uptime by resolving issues before they impact operations.

80 PLUS-Certified Power Supplies

High-efficiency, green power supplies minimize power and cooling costs.

Advanced Reporting
Media, drive, and media security reports help manage system resources, improve security, and improve budget and planning. Automated report scheduling and distribution save time.

High Availability Features
Redundant power supplies and path failover prevent downtime in the event of failure.

Proactive Monitoring and Diagnostics
Ensures the entire system stays running smoothly; provides guided steps to resolve issues often before failures occur.

Encryption Key Management
FIPS-validated solution with KMIP support makes it easy to manage keys, mitigating risk of lost data. AES 256-bit encryption standard for highest levels of security.
