XenData X20 Appliance with a 3.84 TB SSD cache volume to support one LTO library with up to 25 slots and one LTO SAS drive

Description

The X20 Archive Appliance delivers a cost-effective solution for managing an LTO library with up to 50 slots and two SAS LTO drives. Available to support a wide range of robotic libraries from Dell, HP, IBM, Oracle, Overland, Qualstar, Quantum, etc.

Offload from Shared Disk to Near-Line LTO

An LTO-8 cartridge securely stores 12 TB of content, provides a 30 years lifetime and delivers excellent read and write performance, especially when used with large files like video files. When LTO cartridges are managed in a robotic library with an intelligent archive appliance, such as the X20, they become the ideal automated way to store video content for finished projects.

Offloading to near-line LTO frees up space on your shared disk storage. And if a project becomes active again, it is very easy to restore the content back to your primary disk storage.

Near-line LTO, with its 30 years lifetime, is much more reliable than saving to hard disks and involves minimal manual intervention. And compared to archiving in the cloud, it is much more cost-effective, at least for archives with 100 TB or more. However, for small archives, cloud object storage is a good choice.
