Quantum has lately announced a new Scalar storage platform optimized for storing and managing the ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data. The company claims to foster its multi-tier portfolio of workflow, hybrid flash, object-based, cloud and tape storage with this new addition.
The new platform is touted to enable customers to maximize the value of their data in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.
Addressing Massive Unstructured Data Growth
Customers are contending with massive growth of unstructured data, including video and other rich media types:
Tape can play a key role in addressing the challenges of unstructured data growth, providing data protection, active archive or long-term cold storage — including protecting against
ransomware with an offline copy. In addition, tape continues to be significantly more cost-effective than any other storage medium, as reflected in the following chart:
The new Scalar storage platform takes the benefits of tape to the next level offering best-in-class storage density — twice that of earlier-generation rack-mounted libraries — enabling organizations of all sizes to reduce their data center footprint and further reduce their storage costs. As an example, Scalar customers can vault tapes within a system to provide on-premise, monitored cold storage for less than $0.001 per GB, or $0.0014 per GB per month — a fraction of the cost of public cloud storage.
Other innovations contributing to the Scalar’s efficiency include:
Enhanced User Experience
Consumer IT has raised expectations for the user experience in the data center. As a result, the new Scalar platform is known to significantly modernize and enhance the user experience with features such as an all-new HTTP-based interface; automated setup, configuration and management tasks via web services; an intuitive, swipe-based local user interface design; and interaction via mobile devices.
Three New Offerings Based on the Scalar Platform
The first tape products based on the new Scalar platform are designed for three
Geoff Stedman, Senior Vice President, Product and Solutions Marketing, Quantum, said, “Tape has long been synonymous with backup, but its future is as an enabler of efficient unstructured data storage. Use cases like cloud-based cold storage, video production, video surveillance and autonomous car design are ideal for tape, and Quantum’s new Scalar platform offers the most efficient tape storage available for these environments.”
Availability and Pricing
The Scalar i3, Scalar i6 and StorNext AEL6 will begin shipping next month, with list prices starting at $8,500 for the Scalar i3, $25,000 for the Scalar i6, and $42,500 for the StorNext AEL6.
