The X1 can also sync one or more locally accessible file systems to LTO. Additionally, it can be used to create drop-boxes on your network that automatically move files to the archive.

 The X1 Archive Appliance manages one or more LTO external drives and delivers powerful functionality in a small footprint.

The LTO drives connect to the X1 via Thunderbolt or USB. And if your LTO drive has a SAS port, it may be connected to the Thunderbolt port via an adapter.

The appliance runs Windows 11 Pro and connects to your network via 1 Gigabit ethernet or wireless. It is powered by the LTO Server Edition of XenData Archive Series: software that is trusted by some of the world's largest media and entertainment companies to manage their LTO archives. It also includes FS Mirror software – XenData’s software for synchronizing accessible file systems to LTO and the cloud – and Cloud File Gateway software for managing cloud object storage.

The archive volume appears locally as a single logical drive – the X: drive. And there are multiple ways to write to and restore files from it:

  • Share the X: drive over your network and write to it and restore from it like any disk-based share. It accepts all file types – from a Word doc to an MXF video file.
  • Use XenData FS Mirror to synchronize one or more locally accessible file systems or file shares to the LTO archive.
  • Use third party applications that integrate with XenData’s XML API to archive and restore files.

The included Cloud File Gateway is particularly useful for:

  • Creating an instant offsite copy of the files written to LTO. The cloud copy is created automatically using the built-in FS Mirror sync software.
  • Creating cloud backup copies of any accessible file system on your network. These are mirrored to the cloud using FS Mirror.
