Quantum Scalar i6000

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

Features & Benefits:

iLayer Intelligent Software – Intelligent software automates administrative tasks, reducing administrative time up to 75% compared to other tape library products.
Active/Active Dual Robots – Adds a second robot to the library for high availability and faster performance. Operations continue in the event of a robot failure. Robot service is non-disruptive to the application.
Extended Data Life Management (EDLM) – Exclusive iLayer feature to ensure availability of your data placed in long-term storage/archive/DR. Integrates with StorNext® Storage Manager to automate protection of archived data.
Active Vault – Archive tapes inside the library to minimize costs and cartridge handling while improving security and access to vaulted content.
High-Density Expansion Module – Can store almost 12.5PB* in a single 19-inch rack without compromising cartridge access performance. Provides non-disruptive bulk loading, fast independent cartridge scan/inventory.
Advanced Reporting – Media, drive and security reports improve understanding of library utilization and performance. Automated report scheduling and distribution save time.
Path Failover – Control path and data path failover features ensure library system stays operational and accessible even with a SAN fabric failure.
Consolidation – Library capacity, high availability features, and partitioning support tape and library consolidation, delivering significant ROI.
Smart Bulk Cartridge Imports/Exports – The largest import/export capability in the industry, coupled with exclusive auto-import and export-redirect features, significantly reduces cartridge load/unload time.
Modular Architecture with Continuous Robotics – Provides flexible scalability in a standard 19” rack form factor without sacrificing reliability.
Capacity-on-Demand Growth – Simplifies storage growth by scaling quickly, easily and without disruption.
Quantum Vision® Management Software Support – Reduces management time in multiple-device environments and integrates easily with Quantum disk backup solutions.
Scalar Key Manager Support – FIPS-validated solution makes it easy to manage keys, mitigating risk of lost data.
Scalar LTFS Appliance – is available to present tapes as NAS storage, enabling new ways to manage and access archive files.
