This version of the Scalar i80 Tape Library comes with two IBM LTO-5 tape drives, 50 slots and SAS 6Gb/s connectivity.
The Quantum Scalar i80 Tape Library is an easy-to-use tape library for the growing storage needs of small and medium-sized businesses, as well as remote office environments of larger enterprises. The Scalar i80 saves
time by simplifying everything from initial set-up and on-going management, to adding capacity over time.
The Scalar i80 include Quantum’s iLayer software which provides best-inclass management and monitoring capabilities. iLayer software, shipped in over 30,000 Quantum Scalar libraries, typically reduces library management time by more than 50 percent. iLayer’s easy-to-use interface can reduce business expense 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 percent. Proactive diagnostics provide easy-to-understand 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 i80. The COD (capacity-on-demand) scalability feature enables the library’s capacity to grow on demand with users’ data—without disruption. Start with 50
slots and scale up to 80 slots as your requirements grow, with a software license only—no hardware to
purchase or install—providing market leading investment protection. The Scalar i80 provides significant benefits over conventional entry-level tape automation products, including better investment protection and less time
managing the tape environment.
