Spectra Logic T200-T680 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:

  • Easily increase capacity and performance
    • Quantum: Modular design enables easy expansion for additional drive and media space
    • Spectra: Fixed chassis requires a new, larger library and transfer components from the old system
  • Reduce data center footprint
    • Quantum: Highest storage density of 16.7 (tape slots/U); up to 70% higher density than Spectra
    • Spectra: Storage density varies starting at just 10 (tape slots/U)
  • Reduce vaulting costs
    • Quantum: Active Vault enables automated, in-library vaulting for lower cost, more secure long-term storage
    • IBM: No in-library vault option
  • Ensure a healthy media pool
    • Quantum: Automated media health checks and reporting for all media
    • Spectra: Limits reporting and media checks to Spectra brand media only
  • Minimize power & cooling costs
    • Quantum: 80 PLUS® certified power supplies
    • IBM: Standard power supplies

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

Feature T200-T680 Scalar i6 Description
Scalability New library Expansion module Modular design enables non-disruptive expansion for adding more drive and tape space as needs grow beyond the existing system.
Storage Density (slots/U) From 10 to 16 16.7 Higher density (70% more per U than Spectra) saves valuable data center rack space.
Media Management Features limited to Spectra brand only No in-library vault EDLM
Active Vault
Automated media health checks with EDLM ensure content is available from tape when needed. Active Vault enables in-library vaulting, saving money while securely vaulting tapes internal to the library. Vaulted tapes can be monitored with EDLM 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.
