The Quantum Scalar® i80 libraries are 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 and i80 save time by simplifying everything from initial setup and ongoing management, to adding capacity over time.
The Scalar i40 and i80 include Quantum’s iLayer™ software, which provides bestin-class management and monitoring capabilities. iLayer software, shipped in over 50,000 Quantum Scalar libraries, typically reduces library management time by more than 50%. iLayer’s easy-to-use interface can reduce business expenses 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%. 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 and i80 tape libraries. 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 (50 slots up to 80 slots for Scalar i80) 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, both the Scalar i40 and i80 support 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 and i80 provide significant benefits over conventional entry-level tape automation products, including better investment protection and less time managing the tape environment. All this, with the confidence of knowing that over 50,000 Scalar libraries with iLayer software have shipped, makes the Scalar i40/i80 the intelligent choice.
