Advanced Digital Information Corporation (ADIC), a provider of storage products for the open systems market, has expanded the maximum capacity of its Pathlight VX 650 enterprise disk backup product by more than 50% and added support for the new Scalar i500 intelligent mid-range tape library.
With the capacity of its Pathlight VX 650 now offering up to 71.5Tbytes of usable storage, ADIC believes that enterprise IT departments will be able to back up and retain more of their data on a single disk backup resource to facilitate rapid file restores.
The expanded library support also allows end-users to build integrated disk-tape backup environments that take advantage of ADIC's new mid-range, rack-mountable Scalar i500 tape library platform.
"Enterprise IT managers continue to struggle with the job of providing data protection in the face of rapid data growth," says Steve Mackey, EMEA product director at ADIC.
"We know that the optimal solution for different data sets is disk, tape, or a combination of the two technologies, which is why ADIC continues to expand its backup solution options. Greater disk capacity lets users grow their disk tier to handle more data for increased performance and fault tolerance, while new library platform support allows them to expand their overall backup system flexibly and to better manage their ongoing costs.”
