SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced the new Scalar i6000 HD enterprise tape library, providing the industry's highest slot density. Designed to address customers' big data and archive needs with slot densities that are twice those offered by competitors, this new library makes nearly 5 PB of data available in a single 19" rack and scales to more than 75 PB of capacity. Quantum has also added new high-availability and management features to the Scalar i6000, as well as greater access capabilities for storing big data archives on tape.
In addition to best-in-class slot density and scalability, the Scalar i6000 HD delivers high performance and availability, with new active-active dual robotics for fast data access times. Scheduled to be available in March and backwards compatible with Quantum's Scalar i2000 systems, the Scalar i6000 HD offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities, including proactive diagnostics and many redundant systems, such as power, network ports for encryption key management and connectivity for multi-fabric SAN architectures. Leveraging its embedded iLayer software, the Scalar i6000 HD also includes Quantum's unique Active Vault technology for storing vaulted tapes securely in the library and automated policy-based integrity checking, delivering the richest feature set for management of massive data archives.
Tape's New Role in Managing Big Data
As the capture and monetization of data grows, so does the role of tape in big data environments. Built to be reliable and inexpensive, tape technology now serves as an effective tier for storing large-scale archives behind disk storage and next-generation object storage systems. To manage data between tiers of storage intelligently, Quantum's StorNext AEL6000 Archive uses integrated, policy-based software to migrate files automatically. The StorNext AEL6000 Archives will incorporate the new high-density capabilities in the next quarter, enabling StorNext® customers to benefit from the greater tape slot density, smaller footprint, and increased capacity levels as well.
In addition, Quantum's Scalar LTFS provides Scalar i6000 users with greater flexibility for accessing big data archives on tape. Available now, Scalar LTFS provides an easy-to-use NAS file system presentation for tape users in industries working with big data, such as media and entertainment and life sciences. For example, Biola University has deployed Scalar LTFS in its workflow as a flexible and cost-effective approach to storing and accessing large video archives.
Alex Rodriguez, VP of System Engineering and Product Development, Expedient
"The Scalar platform enables us to easily license additional slots and not have to worry about significant fixed asset costs. This flexibility plus the reliable performance of the Scalar i6000 makes it a truly attractive tape library for us. Additionally, Quantum's introduction of high density capabilities addresses the challenges of managing data growth in a service provider environment where efficient use of floor space is critical."
Robert Amatruda, research director, Data Protection and Recovery, IDC
"Today's announcement demonstrates Quantum's continued focus on extending its tape leadership in the market. The latest density, scalability and redundancy features added to the Scalar i6000 tape libraries make it an ideal solution for managing big data archives and cost effectively maintaining data stored in the cloud."
Robert Clark, senior vice president, Data Protection, Quantum
"85 percent of the Fortune 100 have turned to Quantum to meet their storage needs, and we're continuing to deliver innovative new solutions to address the challenges that large enterprise customers face. This includes adding new offerings such as the Scalar i6000 HD to our tape automation portfolio, which not only is unmatched in its breadth and depth but also reflects the unique benefits tape technology provides in today's evolving data protection environment."

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
