Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Adic), provider of intelligent storage solutions for open system environments, is adding iSCSI connectivity options to its Scalar family of tape libraries.
The options give workgroups, branch offices and smaller enterprises an easy path to more effective backup by allowing users to connect the libraries directly to their Ethernet networks. The iSCSI library option permits the use of standard Ethernet networks to back up multiple servers to a single, networked tape library, providing the benefits of central administration and higher performance.
The Scalar 24 reportedly offers full enterprise-class data protection at entry-level prices. It includes the latest LTO and SuperDLT drive technology, scalable management, a guaranteed capacity upgrade path and integrated storage networking options. It is available with one or two tape drives and up to 24 media slots.
The Scalar 100 is a midrange tape library with the combination of storage density, trouble-free scalability and storage networking support. It provides for up to eight tape drives and 96 tape cartridges in 14 standard rack units. Supported tape technologies include LTO, SuperDLT and AIT drives and media.
Both the Scalar 24 and Scalar 100 are also available with SCSI and Fibre Channel connectivity options.
