Quantum Intros Tape Library

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced the new Scalar 50, an intuitive entry-level tape library designed to provide faster, easier and more reliable data protection for small- to medium-sized storage environments. Optimized with Quantum’s user-friendly interface, it helps simplify the backup process, integrates with disk and scales easily to help customers meet the challenge of unforeseen data growth. The Scalar 50 is the latest offering in Quantum’s industry-leading tape automation portfolio, which also includes the Scalar® i2000 and Scalar® i500 intelligent library platforms.

As customers’ storage needs evolve, the Scalar 50 accommodates data growth cost-effectively by scaling from 38 slots up to 76 slots simply by adding a module. Specifically designed for seamless integration with disk systems, the Scalar 50 also supports disk-to-disk-to-tape data protection strategies, and it leverages Quantum’s StorageCare™ Vision data management and reporting solution, which enables customers to manage and monitor multiple Quantum tape libraries and disk systems from one screen. All of this makes the Scalar 50 an ideal solution for simplifying backup processes.

“Small and medium businesses have difficulty predicting their ever-increasing data storage requirements,” said Robert Amatruda, storage research director for IDC. “Solutions like Quantum’s Scalar 50 tape library help to address customers’ needs to add capacity with a scalable architecture, as well as the flexibility with mixed connectivity support.”
