SGI® 400 Virtual Tape Library
Cost Effectively Satisfy Data Protection Needs While Exceeding Recovery Point and Time Objectives.
IT organizations are faced with explosive data growth and increased compliance demands while trying to reign in escalating costs. Recovery time and point objectives (RTO & RPO) require that more data be accessible for longer periods of time, while not impacting restoration times.
Traditional data protection solutions like physical tape or competing VTL solutions have not been able to keep pace with these growing demands. Now, with SGI 400 Virtual Tape Library (VTL), IT organizations can cost effectively meet data protection needs while meeting or exceeding recovery objectives.
SGI 400 VTL provides a robust backup/restore solution that assures more reliable backups and faster restores than automated tape libraries. Data is better protected than with tape, and you have complete online access to all your critical data.
- Superior Performance and Faster, More Reliable Backups and Restores
SGI 400 VTL delivers up to 23TB/hour, which is ideal for customers with massive amounts of data who require higher performance levels. This enables IT organizations to meet increasing Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives.
- Breakthrough Environmental Savings
Enterprise MAID technology is leveraged to create intelligent enterprise storage solutions. With the application-driven, Enterprise MAID platform, only a maximum of 25% (or optionally 50%) of the drives are powered on at any time. This platform was purpose built for the challenges of storing long-term data, and the infrequent access requirements of archive data. With SGI Enterprise MAID architecture, power and cooling savings of over 85% can be realized, dramatically reducing environmental operating costs.
- Seamless Integration into Existing Tape Environments
SGI 400 VTL products integrate seamlessly with your current backup/restore software, so there's no need to change or disrupt your storage infrastructure. The SGI 400 VTL enables disk to emulate leading tape libraries, delivering the speed, reliability, and availability benefits of disk-based backup while allowing users to continue using existing tape backup software and procedures.
SGI 400 VTL products are compatible with leading backup software providers such as HP, IBM, Legato, Oracle, Symantec and more.
