Dell ML6000 против Quantum Scalar i6 конкурентное сравнение

We know you have options. We’ve made investment in the design of our Scalar i6 tape library to offer unique capabilities helping you to:

  • Reduce data center footprint
    • Quantum: Highest storage density of 16.7 (tape slots/U); 70% higher density than Dell
    • Dell: Storage density of < 10 (tape slots/U)
  • Reduce vaulting costs
    • Quantum: Active Vault enables automated, in-library vaulting for lower cost, more secure long-term storage
    • Dell: No in-library vault option
  • Consolidate tape libraries
    • Quantum: support for up to 800 tape slots in a single 19-inch rack
    • Dell: support for up to 409 tape slots in a single 19-inch rack
  • Minimize power & cooling costs
    • Quantum: 80 PLUS® certified power supplies
    • Dell: Standard power supplies
  • Reduce server sprawl
    • Quantum: Embedded compute server available for converged solutions; all library management applications run internally
    • Dell: No embedded server option and library management applications require external servers

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

Feature ML6000 Scalar i6 Description
Storage Density (slots/U) <10
Max 409-slots in 19” rack
Max 800-slots in 19” rack
Higher density (70% more per U than Dell) saves valuable data center rack space.
Media Management Active Vault Active Vault enables in-library vaulting, saving money while securely vaulting tapes internal to the library. Vaulted tapes can be monitored with EDLM media health checking software to ensure data integrity.
Power Standard power supplies 80 PLUS certified power supplies 80 PLUS certification ensures lowest cost, power, and cooling for minimizing OPEX.
Convergence NA Embedded
compute server option
Embedded compute server blades enable complementary applications (such as LTFS and Veeam tape server) to run internal to the library for greater efficiency of converged solutions.
