Quantum SuperLoader to be Offered by Compaq

Quantum Corp. and Compaq Computer Corp. have announced that Compaq will offer the Quantum SuperLoader with its StorageWorks products.

According to the companies, the StorageWorks SuperLoader is an expandable, stackable, rack-mounted unit that stores 320 gigabytes of uncompressed backup data with a data transfer rate of up to 10.8 gigabytes per hour. Customers can scale the StorageWorks SuperLoader to 640 gigabytes of uncompressed storage by adding a second 8-cartridge magazine as their backup requirements expand.

The companies said the StorageWorks SuperLoader is designed for ease of maintenance and management with modular, customer-replaceable components to minimize system downtime and lower customers’ total cost of ownership.
