AMHERST, N.Y. — The storage connectivity company ATTO Technology released a compact tape archive and backup library solution in partnership with the data storage company Qualstar Corporation.
The two-part hardware solution features ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 intelligent Bridges and Qualstar Q24 Compact LTO tape libraries.
XstreamCORE adds 40 Gb Ethernet connectivity to up to 16 SAS Q24 tape libraries per bridge. This creates a flexible LTO tape backup solution that takes up minimal space and can be located off-site for remote backup and archive.
The Qualstar Q24 Compact LTO tape library is designed with reliability and the customer experience in mind, including installation and maintenance.
Feature-rich and compact in a rack-mountable 2U enclosure, the Q24 offers capacities of up to 288 terabytes (native) and 720 terabytes (compressed). The integrated browser-based remote management interface allows for set up, management, and troubleshooting of the Q24.
ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 is an intelligent protocol bridge that connects Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) LTO tape drives to Ethernet networks via iSCSI or iSER. It enables reliable high-performance remote Ethernet connectivity to SAS tape devices.
“This solution is unique in that it takes up so little space but packs a punch in features, performance and utility,” says Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology.
“IT architects looking for a remote backup and archive solution but have limited space to work with will be happy with this.”
