Scalar i6000 - Quantum iQ
Scalar i6000
> DATASHEET
The Intelligent Tape Library for Enterprise Archive,
Disaster Recovery, and Long-Term Data Retention
Protecting and retaining your data can
be challenging. Keeping pace with fast,
unpredictable data growth in a cost- and
time-efficient manner pushes IT staff to
their limits. Ensuring that data is secure and
available over long periods of time adds to
these challenges. The Scalar® i6000 tape
library was designed to solve these problems
and simplify your environment.
The i6000 scales up to 180PB of data,
supporting large enterprise storage
environments. Capacity-on-Demand offers
fast, flexible, and non-disruptive growth,
easing the difficulties of managing dynamic
storage requirements. Quantum customers
experience significant management time
savings due to the intelligent and proactive
features in iLayer™ management software, up
to 75% savings compared to other libraries.
High availability features like Dual Robot and
Path Failover allow the library to continue to
operate despite failures of library components
or even failures within the SAN fabric. The
Extended Data Life Management feature
(EDLM) ensures your archived media is
trouble-free so the data is available when you
need it. Security features like FIPS-compliant
encryption key management safeguard your
data while in the library and after export.
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.
The Scalar i6000 features ultra high density and a 19-inch rack form factor and scales from 100 to 12,006 cartridges.
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.
