Product Description

Quantum Scalar I40 Tape library

The Quantum Scalar i40 library is the easy-to-use tape libraries for the growing storage needs of small and medium-sized businesses, as well as 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. iLayer includes proactive diagnostics, which has been shown to reduce service calls by 50%.
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 i40 tape librarie.
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 with Scalar i40 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. Tape encryption ensures your data is protected even while being stored offsite.
The Scalar i40 provides significant benefits over conventional entry-level tape automation products, including better investment protection and less time managing the tape environment.
The Quantum Scalar i40 includes rackmount kit, one North American and one European power cord. Power cords for other regions should be sourced locally. If not mounting in a rack, customer should purchase a desktop kit. Customer installable, but phone-based installation and training purchase is recommended.
