This version of the Scaler i40 Premium Tape Library comes with two IBM LTO-5 tape drives, 40 slots, an Advanced Features Option and an SAS 6Gb/s connector.
The Quantum Scalar i40 is the easy-to-use entry-level tape library for the growing storage needs of small-sized businesses, and remote office environments of larger enterprises. The Scalar i40 saves time by simplifying everything from initial set-up and on-going management, to adding capacity over time. The Scalar i40 includes Quantum’s iLayer software which provides best-in-class 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 benefits both small businesses and remote offices in that 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 shown to reduce service calls by 50 percent. Proactive diagnostics provide easy-to-understand messages with specific corrective actions, allowing you to avoid downtime and spend more time doing other things besides managing the backup environment.
Keeping up with data growth is simplified with the Scalar i40 tape library. 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 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, the Scalar i40 supports the US Federal government recommended encryption standard for the highest levels of security. Data encryption ensures your data is protected even while being stored offsite.
