Scalar i500, i6000 and 10K Promotion: Buy Three LTO-5 Drives Get One Free and Free Scalar i6000 Library Upgrade


For valid orders received by Quantum, we are offering a promotion on LTO-5 drives for Scalar i500, Scalar i6000 and Scalar 10K tape libraries. In addition, when upgrading a Scalar i2000 with LTO-5 drives, customers receive a free i2000 to i6000 library upgrade.

Key Messages

 LTO-5 capacity, performance and security features are ideally suited for archive and long-term data retention.

 LTO-5 leads the industry in cartridge capacity and throughput performance. The ability to store 3TB of data on a single cartridge is nearly 2X the capacity of LTO-4 and 4X that of LTO-3. This capacity increase allows customers to keep up with high data growth rates while maintaining the same library footprint.

 At 280MB/s throughput, LTO-5 completes jobs faster than any other tape format.

 Native encryption and WORM technologies offer customers the security features needed for compliance and privacy initiatives.

 LTO-5 can read/write to LTO-4 cartridges and read LTO-3 cartridges, protecting customer investment in prior LTO technologies. Continued investment in LTO-5 is also protected since LTO is, by far, the leading tape format in the industry.

 New Scalar i6000 offers Scalar i2000 customers more capacity, improved im-port/export capabilities, new reports, Media Data Integrity Analysis, Native Storage Networking, and access to LTO-5 tape drives.
