Increased capacity isn't the only change from the i6000 HD's predecessor. Quantum officials also pointed to new active-active dual robotics for fast data access times.
Features include redundant power, multiple network ports of connectivity to multi-fabric SANs, and the secure storage of vaulted tapes.
Optional Scalar LTFS software presents the unit as a NAS, making it easier to process massive amounts of data.
"This includes adding new offerings such as the Scalar i6000 HD to our tape automation portfolio, which not only is unmatched in its breadth and depth but also reflects the unique benefits tape technology provides in today's evolving data protection environment."
