Scalar i40/i80
> DATASHEET
Bringing iLayer Benefits
to Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
The Quantum Scalar® i40 and i80 libraries
are the easy-to-use tape libraries for the
growing storage needs of small and mediumsized businesses, as well as remote office
environments of larger enterprises. The Scalar
i40 and i80 save time by simplifying everything
from initial setup and ongoing management,
to adding capacity over time.
The Scalar i40 and i80 include Quantum’s
iLayer™ software, which provides bestin-class management and monitoring
capabilities. iLayer software, shipped in over
50,000 Quantum Scalar libraries, typically
reduces library management time by more
than 50%. iLayer’s easy-to-use interface can
reduce business expenses because it does not
require a dedicated full-time technical staff
member to keep the library up and running
smoothly and reliably.
iLayer includes proactive diagnostics, which
has been shown to reduce service calls by
50%. Proactive diagnostics provide easy-tounderstand messages with specific corrective
actions, allowing users to avoid downtime and
spend more time doing other things besides
managing the tape environment.
Keeping up with data growth is simplified
with the Scalar i40 and i80 tape libraries.
The COD (Capacity-on-Demand) scalability
feature enables the library’s capacity to
grow on demand with users’ data—without
disruption. Start with 25 slots and scale up to
40 slots with Scalar i40 (50 slots up to 80 slots
for Scalar i80) as your requirements grow,
with a software license only—no hardware to
purchase or install—providing market-leading
investment protection.
To keep your sensitive data or proprietary
corporate intellectual property safe, and to
meet the increasing government requirements
for compliance, both the Scalar i40 and
i80 support the US Federal governmentrecommended encryption standard for the
highest levels of security. Tape encryption
ensures your data is protected even while
being stored offsite.
The Scalar i40 and i80 provide significant
benefits over conventional entry-level tape
automation products, including better
investment protection and less time managing
the tape environment. All this, with the
confidence of knowing that over 50,000 Scalar
libraries with iLayer software have shipped,
makes the Scalar i40/i80 the intelligent choice.
