Product Summary

You're asking your staff to get more done with less these days; shouldn't you expect the same from your systems, too? Whether you're upgrading to a SAN for the first time or consolidating a collection of data centers, the ADIC Scalar i2000 meets the unique challenges of SAN backup and improves your capabilities while reducing the resources needed to manage backup operations. The embedded intelligence of the Scalar i2000's unique iPlatform architecture enhances performance and reliability through a single management view that includes library, drives, and connectivity through the fabric. Data-path readiness checks, drive performance optimization, and connectivity failover work together to keep your backup running.

Scale your system to meet today's budgets while easily adding capacity down the road with the industry's most advanced scalability architecture - capacity-on-demand. Throughout, the Scalar i2000 meets the demands of today's data centers, with native mixed-media support (LTO, SDLT, AIT), industry-leading density, rack-compatible form factor, and RAS features that include dual-redundant power, non-disruptive drive, power, and fan exchanges, and component-level fault isolation for faster, easier service.

Features and Benefits

  • Fundamental architecture advance—integrates external components and reduces costs by embedding advanced functionality in the library
  • Industry-leading density—720 cartridges per square meter
  • Improved performance in SAN environment—through unified management, proactive data path readiness checks, and optimized drive performance
  • Industry's most advanced scalability—capacity-on-demand growth from 100 to more than 2,200 cartridges in a single library
  • Advanced RAS features for higher system reliability and faster, more efficient service
  • Policy-based alerts—proactive system monitoring, integrated policy engine, and e-mail alerting system for early problem detection
  • Real-time reporting—including data written/read, slot utilization, and library activity status
  • Native partitioning and true mixed-media operation—supports enterprise backup consolidation without external servers and software
  • Cost savings—drive aggregation reduces switch ports and cabling requirements up to 75%
  • One-year on-site service included for the highest levels of protection


Scalar 1000 Building Blocks

Designed for storage network operation, the Scalar i2000 increases the performance and reliability of SAN backup. Its advanced scalability offers capacity-on-demand growth from 100 to over 2,200 cartridges. An innovative chassis design, which matches the dimensions of standard data center racks, provides industry-leading density and makes space planning easy.
