Oracle SL150 против Quantum Scalar i3 и i6 конкурентное сравнение

We know you have options. We’ve made investment in the design of our tape libraries to offer unique capabilities helping you to:

  • Easily increase capacity
    • Quantum: Simple software license key (Capacity-on-Demand)
    • Oracle: Install modules with physical slots only
  • Reduce data center footprint
    • Quantum: Highest storage density of 16.7 (tape slots/U)
    • Oracle: Storage density of 10-14.4 (tape slots/U)
  • Maximize uptime
    • Quantum: Integrated intelligent iLayer™ software with proactive diagnostics
    • Oracle: Optional external software and server to install and manage
  • Minimize power & cooling costs
    • Quantum: 80 PLUS® certified power supplies
    • HPE: Standard power supplies
  • Reduce server sprawl
    • Quantum: Embedded compute server available for converged solutions; all library management applications run internally
    • Oracle: No embedded server option and library management applications require external servers

We have two models that compare to Oracle SL150 providing more options depending on your needs:

  • Scalar i3
    • Designed for lower duty cycle environments
    • Uses LTO half high tape drives
  • Scalar i6
    • Designed for more demanding workload environments
    • Uses LTO full high tape drives
    • Provides media health checks to ensure content stored on tape remains available
    • Allows automated, in-library vaulting for lower cost, more secure long-term storage

The Oracle SL150 tape library is designed for entry level environments. The library utilizes LTO half high drives, similar to the Scalar i3 library, which are intended for lower duty cycle workloads. While Scalar i3 most closely compares to SL150, we’ve included Scalar i6 details in case your needs will benefit from its advanced features.

The following table compares key features of the three products to help determine which tape library best meets your needs.

Feature Scalar i3 SL150 Scalar i6 Description
Scalability COD
25-slot increments from 25 to 200
Physical slots (no COD)
30-slot increments From 30 to 300
25-slot increments from 50 to 800
Capacity-on-Demand (COD) scalability expands library capacity with a simple software license key.
Storage Density (slots/U) 16.7
50-slots per 3U
10 to 14.4
30-slots per 3U CM
30-slots per 2U EM
100-slots per 6U
Higher density saves valuable data center rack space.
Availability & Durability LTO half-high LTO half-high LTO full-high Media health check (EDLM feature) Full high drives are designed to handle higher duty cycle environments. Automated media health checks ensure content is available from tape when needed.
Library Management iLayer intelligent software
standard integrated
Automated Cartridge
System Library
Software (ACSLS) optional external
iLayer intelligent software
standard integrated
iLayer is standard and comes embedded in all Scalar libraries – minimizing library management time. ACSLS software is complex, purchased separately, and must be hosted external to the library.
Media Management Flexible mail (I/E) slot options 0-100 slots 5-slot increments Limited mail (I/E) slot options 4, or 19 slots Flexible mail (I/E) slot options 0-240 slots 5-slot increments
Active Vault
More I/E options facilitate unique customer media import and export needs. Scalar i3 and i6 I/E slots can be unlicensed storage slots, reducing costs. Active Vault enables inlibrary vaulting, saving money while securely vaulting tapes internal to the library.
Power 80 PLUS certified power supplies Standard power supplies 80 PLUS certified power supplies 80 PLUS certification ensures lowest cost, power, and cooling for minimizing OPEX.
Convergence Embedded compute server option NA Embedded compute server option Embedded compute server blades enable complementary applications to run internal to the library for greater efficiency of converged solutions.
