FEATURES AND BENEFITS
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 75PB of data, supporting large enterprise storage
environments. Capacity-on-Demand offers fast, flexible, and nondisruptive 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. The Extended Data Life
Management feature ensures your archived media is trouble-free so the
data is available when you need it.
Security features like access
control and FIPS-compliant
encryption key management
safeguards your data while
it’s in the library, after export,
and when it’s offsite.
The Scalar i6000 features ultra high density and a 19-inch rack form
factor and scales from 100 to 12,006 cartridges.
~ 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. Allows the library to continue
to operate in the event of a robot failure. Robot service is
non-disruptive to the application.
~ Extended Data Life Management – Exclusive iLayer
feature used 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 – Vault archive tapes inside the library to
minimize costs and cartridge handling while improving
security and data protection.
~ High-Density Expansion Module – Can store almost
5PB in a single 19-inch rack. Provides non-disruptive
bulk loading, fast independent cartridge scan/inventory.
High-density module adds library capacity without
sacrificing cartridge access performance.
~ Advanced Reporting – Media, drive and security
reports improve understanding of library utilization
and performance. Automated report scheduling and
distribution save time.
~ Native Storage Networking – Control path and data
path failover features reduce downtime. LUN mapping
capability improves security.
~ Consolidation – Library capacity, high availability
features, and partitioning support tape and library
consolidation, delivering significant ROI.
~ Bulk Cartridge Imports/Exports – Extended I/E feature
creates a logical/virtual I/E station inside the library for
fast imports and exports. New 72-slot mailbox supports
the largest import/export capability in the industry.
~ 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.
