The Scalar i3 is a tape library designed for small-to-medium size environments with a feature set focused on saving time and money. The Scalar iLayer management software-proven to reduce management time and improve system uptime-has been fully refreshed for even greater efficiencies and a modern, intuitive user experience. Scalar i3 can scale from 25 cartridge slots up to 200 slots, or 3PB on-demand, simplifying capacity planning and budgeting. And its highly efficient design-with features like the best storage density and 80 PLUS-certified power supplies-allows customers to reduce their tape footprint as part of their backup/Data Recovery strategy and for departmental archives.

Under the constant threat of cyber attacks, keeping an offline copy is fast becoming the standard in a cost-effective secured storage medium. Quantum Scalar libraries come with added security layers compared to other tape libraries. Active Vault in-library vaulting increases security by storing tapes in a library-managed vault partition that is not accessible to host applications, offering a true air gap to tape.
