Qualstar ships Quantum SDLT 320 drives in TLS-6000 tape libraries.Qualstar Corporation (Nasdaq:QBAK), a manufacturer of automated tape storage solutions, has announced that it has begun shipments of Quantum's new SDLT (Super DLT) See DLT. 320 tape drive in its widely-regarded TLS-6000 Series automated tape library family.
Building on the Super DLTtape technology introduced last year, the SDLT 320 tape drive holds 320 gigabytes of data (compressed), 60 percent more than other tape solutions designed for mid-range systems. Throughput has also been increased to a market-leading 32 megabytes per second (unit) megabytes per second - (MBps, MB/s) Millions of bytes per second. A unit of data rate. 1 MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes per second (not 1,048,576). (compressed), offering relief for users whose backup windows continue to shrink.
"The Qualstar/Quantum combination provides clear, cost-centric benefits to customers," said David Hill David Hill may refer to one of a number of people with this name:
Qualstar's TLS-6000 automated tape library family provides a wide range of capacity and performance choices, allowing customers to tailor their storage solutions to meet an especially broad range of requirements. With SDLT 320, capacities range from 3.2 terabytes in a compact desktop unit, to more than 76 terabytes in an enterprise-class library. Data transfer rates range from 100 to more than 920 gigabytes per hour over SCSI SCSI

Once common standard for connecting peripheral devices (disks, modems, printers, etc.) to small and medium-sized computers. SCSI has given way to faster standards, such as Firewire and USB. or single- and dual-channel Fibre Channel interfaces.
"Qualstar's innovative TLS-6000 libraries, combined with Quantum's high-performance SDLT 320 drives, provide companies whose storage requirements continue to escalate, with higher density and lower cost per gigabyte along with faster data backups and restores. This results in productivity advantages equating to a dramatic reduction in the total cost of ownership," said Andy Grolnick, vice president, Marketing, Quantum DLTtape Group. "These benefits, in combination with its proven durable design for handling demanding automated tape environments, make the SDLT 320 a perfect fit for Qualstar's tape libraries."
TLS-6000 libraries with Quantum's SDLT 320 drives are available worldwide through Qualstar's team of authorized resellers.
