ADIC Scalar i2000 selected as product of the year.

Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Nasdaq:ADIC) announced recently that the company's Scalar i2000 data center tape library was selected as the Product of the Year in the backup hardware category at the seventh annual Forum Stockage conference, held earlier this month in Paris. International in scope, Forum Stockage is Europe's largest storage-centric conference and exhibition. Winners in other product categories at this year's event include Brocade, Network Appliance, Legato and Veritas.

"The selection of the Scalar i2000 as product of the year demonstrates broad industry agreement that intelligence counts," commented Scott Roza, ADIC Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The Scalar i2000 sets new standards for automated tape libraries by integrating advanced management functions inside the library itself. This innovation increases the level of data protection IT departments can achieve, while eliminating the need for external hardware and software. The end results are a reduction in the time spent managing backup and lower overall costs."

The ADIC Scalar i2000 eliminates external library control servers and enhances library functions to increase overall data protection and save users time and money over the life of their backup system. The Scalar i2000 is the first library to incorporate ADIC's intelligent iPlatform architecture, integrating and simplifying key backup management functions and offering built-in support for a broad range of data center requirements while reducing the need for external applications, equipment, and management activities.

Functions integrated within the Scalar i2000 include native partitioning of a single library into multiple logical libraries, mixed-media operation, native Fibre Channel connectivity, advanced performance monitoring, proactive system readiness checks, self-guided diagnostics, and policy-based user alerts that are sent over standard email and pager networks. The iPlatform's server-class embedded controller displays real-time backup performance data and gathers information to be used for future predictive analysis. The Scalar i2000 also incorporates a unique capacity-on-demand capability, allowing users to expand capacity from 100 to over 2200 cartridges and pay for added capacity only as they use it.
