Exabyte Corporation today announced today that its Fibre Channel X80 and X200 tape libraries will now feature serverless backup capability as a result of embedding the extended copy (e-copy) command set in the M2 native Fibre Channel tape drive.
"For the first time, users will experience the true data speeds of disk and tape in the backup operation," said Jim Campbell, Exabyte SAN Alliance manager. "By eliminating server cycles from backup, we eliminate the constraints of the traditional backup window. Continuous, 24/7 backups become a reality."
Exabyte expects the X200 and X80 to start shipping later this month. Pricing starts at $40,985.
