Product Summary
adic

With its capacity-on-demand scalability, built-in storage network support, and high-availability architecture, the Scalar 10K brings the efficiencies of consolidation to your backup.

The Scalar 10Ks unique capacity-on-demand scalability lets you scale your storage capacity more easily and quickly than you can with any other library. Capacity-on-demand systems ship with extra capacity that you can activate, in 100-tape increments, using a software key. You pay only for the capacity you use.

For high-capacity or mixed-media needs, the Scalar 10K offers traditional library configurations. These maximum capacity models have up to 15,885 tape slots and allow you to combine LTO, SDLT, and AIT technology in the same chassis.

The Scalar 10K is the first library to offer integrated storage network support, with certified interoperability that means seamless operation in new or existing SANs. The system supports multiple protocols and heterogeneous fabrics at the same time. Integrated SAN management services, such as serverless backup and data-path conditioning, provide better backup in storage networks.

The Scalar 10Ks high-availability architecture, which includes true 2N power and dual data paths, is designed to meet the reliability demands of data consolidation. Features to ensure maximum system uptime include auto-calibration, self-configuration, and magazine-based loading of up to 7.9TB (native) at once.

Features and Benefits

  • Capacity-on-demand scalability: lets you instantly activate additional storage while paying only for the storage you actually use
  • Enterprise size: high drive count for maximum performance and flexible configurations
  • Proven connectivity: storage network interoperability means seamless integration into new or existing SANs
  • Intelligent SAN support: integrated storage networking supportincluding serverless backup, data path conditioning, and built-in firewallfor easier installation and operation, higher performance and reliability
  • High availability: features include true 2N power, dual SCSI library control channels, hot-swap drives
  • Reliability: diagnostic options include real-time health checks, email and pager alerts, and phone-home event reporting
  • Rapid configuration: five slots-per-second inventory speed; auto-discovery and auto-calibration of all components
  • Investment protection: supports LTO, SDLT, and AIT in single- or multi-technology installations for maximum flexibility and performance
  • Virtual libraries: provides up to 16 virtual library partition options for multiple applications support
  • Responsive service: one-year on-site service provided by ADIC technical Assistance Center (ATAC) with 24-hour, worldwide service and support



With capacity-on-demand scalability, you add capacity as your data grows, paying only for the storage you actually use.

Scalar 10K capacity-on-demand libraries come with extra capacity that you can activate in increments of 100 tape slots using software authorization keys. When most of the capacity of an installed unit has been activated, ADIC delivers additional capacity upgrades at no charge.
