Ideal for IT environments with data-intensive networks,
the Exabyte 430M M2 tape library delivers high™
performance, dependable automated backup. The Exabyte
430M accommodates up to four M2 tape drives and 30 data
cartridges, providing continuous, unattended data storage
operations for up to 30 days.
The 430M occupies just five rack units and two cubic feet,
maximizing valuable data center space. Designed to
provide a scalable SCSI or native Fibre Channel solution,
the library allows users to add drives and cartridges as
their data storage needs grow.
The 430M-FC with native Fibre Channel offers enhanced
performance and reliability features. Exabyte’s newest
native Fibre Channel library is also the only midrange library
in the world to offer serverless backup capability. M2 drives
inside the library communicate directly with RAID devices,
bypassing the server and eliminating backup windows.
Users get continuous 24/7 backup and restore operations at
speeds up to five times faster than competitive libraries.
Exabyte’s award-winning M2 drives are field-replaceable,
making them easy to maintain and upgrade, protecting the
user’s investment. The intuitive operator interface guides
users through library and drive functions.
* Compressed specifications assume a 2.5:1 compression ratio. Compression, capacity and throughput will vary
