The Quantum Scalar i80 libraries are the easy-to-use tape libraries for the growing storage needs of small and medium-sized businesses, as well as remote office environments of larger enterprises. The Scalar i80 saves time by simplifying everything from initial setup and ongoing management, to adding capacity over time.
The Scalar i80 include Quantum’s iLayer software, which provide best-in-class management and monitoring capabilities. iLayer software, shipped in over 45,000 Quantum Scalar libraries, typically reduces library management time by more than 50%. iLayer’s easy-to-use interface can reduce business expenses because it does not require a dedicated full-time technical staff member to keep the library up and running smoothly and reliably.
iLayer includes proactive diagnostics, which has been shown to reduce service calls by 50%. Proactive diagnostics provide easy-to-understand messages with specific corrective actions, allowing users to avoid downtime and spend more time doing other things besides managing the tape environment.
