The intelligent Scalar i6000 tape libraries are specifically designed for the archive and long-term data retention needs in an enterprise-level environment. The Scalar i6000 offers many features such as a storage networking solution, iLayer MeDIA data integrity feature, and bulk load I/E capabilities. The Scalar i6000 stores enough for very large tape environments and tape consolidation projects.
Media Data Integrity Analysis (MeDIA)
A exclusive iLayer feature used to ensure availability of your data placed in long-term storage/archive/DR. These checks are done in the background, outside of normal application operations.
Improves library performance and backup reliability. iLayer collects drive and media statistics as part of normal library operations. Provides reports on tape drive utilization, media usage, and media health.
Integrated storage networking capabilities
Multiple library and drive features improve performance, availability, reliability, and security within SAN environments.
Library capacity, high availability features, and partitioning support tape consolidation, delivering significant ROI.
Bulk cartridge imports/exports
Extended I/E feature creates a logical/virtual I/E station inside the library for fast imports and exports. 72 slot mailbox supports the largest import/export capability in the industry.
Modular architecture with continuous robotics
Provides flexible scalability in a standard 19" rack form factor without sacrificing reliability.
Simplifies storage growth by scaling quickly, easily and without disruption.
Native SMI-S support
Easily integrates into most SRM environments.
Scalar key manager support
Easily manage encryption keys, mitigating risk of lost data. LTO-4 and LTO-5 Drives use AES-256 Bit Encryption Standard for highest levels of security.
StorageCare guardian support
Remote monitoring service that improves system reliability without adding cost.
