Tape has been used for decades to preserve and protect data, and today more than ever tape is the best choice for long-term storage. Not only that, tape has emerged as a key part of cloud and hyperscale infrastructures. The biggest data centers on the planet are using tape, and using it extensively. Our customers are dealing with the challenge of storing petabytes, and exabytes of unstructured data – video, hi-res images, IoT data, research data, really valuable stuff – and they need to keep it for decades.Further, in the Enterprise, CIOs and IT departments are concerned with the threat of ransomware. Because tape storage is an ‘offline’ storage technology, it provides effective protection against ransomware and malware. Each of the Scalar libraries provides best-in-class storage density, from the 3U rackmountable Scalar i3, all the way up to the full data center aisle, 20+ frame Scalar i6000. Each of the Scalar libraries can be scaled simply with expansion modules and capacity-on-demand licensing. iLayer™ proactive diagnostics detect degraded library, drive and media conditions before they cause a failure, or before the media itself degrades. This translates to less time spent managing libraries, less downtime and an overall reduction in operational expense. Scalar Key Manager works with all Scalar libraries to provide simple, FIPS-validated encryption key management. And since all LTO tape drives use AES 256-bit military-grade encryption, you can rest assured your data is secure. Scalar i3 was designed specifically to give mid-sized IT environments the kind of protection provided by LTO media, while solving the problems associated with cost, scaling, and management. The Scalar i3 can start as a single, 3U unit, providing dense, cost-effective backup storage of up to 750 TB. But then it can scale in 25-cartridge increments as data volumes increase—all the way up to 12 PB. Its Capacity-on-Demand (CoD), software-key growth makes growing the system easy and economical. The Scalar i3 features simple cartridge-based media handling, and it uses Quantum’s intelligent iLayer™ management software to monitor library systems and provide intuitive, proactive alerts. The result is the industry’s best tape backup protection at the lowest total ownership cost.
Scalar i6 offers a unique solution to data center backup and long-term storage problems. Users can start with a single, 6U library unit and grow to fill an entire 48U rack with a single, integrated library that can store up to 24 petabytes of data—and you pay for the expanded capacity only when you need it. The result is a system that protects against ransomware and other threats at the industry’s lowest per-GB price for any rack-based system. Scalar i6 combines its economy and convenience with intelligent, proactive diagnostics to ensure the highest possible uptime and the lowest admin overhead. And it automatically scans media in the library, reporting on any early signs of wear to ensure the integrity of your data for the full length of even the most challenging retention requirements.
Scalar i6000 is the Enterprise library with the industry’s best combination of capacity, security, and economy. A single unit can store up to 360 PB of data, and it scales using capacity-on-demand growth and slot-based pricing—so you get the densest and most economical storage now and in the future.
Retaining data on LTO protects it from malware and supports vaulting for DR protection, and the Scalar i6000 leads the industry in features that make sure data is protected and available.
Intelligent diagnostics monitor systems and issue proactive alerts. Full redundancy—from drives, power supplies, data and control paths, even robotics—ensures continuous availability. And Military-grade encryption and automated Extended Data Life Management (EDLM) ensures that your files are readable and safe, no matter how long you retain them.
