VXA Packet Technology
VXA Packet Technology provides a digital
solution to the long-standing mechanical
problem of head-to-tape alignment—a common
issue which causes conventional tape storage
products to trade off costly mechanical complexity with data restore integrity. With VXA’s
award-winning Packet Technology, VXA Packet
Tape Drives write and read data in individually
addressed packets.
During a read operation, discrete data packets
are dynamically gathered and reassembled in
the VXA buffer, similar to the manner in which
data is transferred and reassembled via the
Internet, resulting in dramatically higher data
restore integrity with reduced cost.
VXA Packet Technology eliminates the need for
expensive, complex mechanisms to maintain
the tight tolerances required for tracking resulting in much greater capacity, speed and data
reliability at a much lower cost.
• Rack-mount kit
included for easy
installation into
standard 19’ rack
• VXA Packet Technology
— the New Standard
