Exabyte announces new Magnum 1x7 LTO Autoloader for Mac OS X Server.

Exabyte Corporation, an innovator in tape backup, restore and archival systems, has announced the availability of the Magnum 1x7 LTO Autoloader for use with Mac OS X Server. The Magnum 1x7 is now available through the Apple Store, bundled with TOLIS BRU Basic backup and restore software to provide a comprehensive hardware-software solution for data backup requirements.

The Magnum 1x7 LTO Autoloader is a 2u, rack-mountable, automated backup and restore product built with LTO (Ultrium) Technology and ExaBotics--Exabyte's world-renowned robotics. The Exabyte Magnum 1x7 --a breakthrough in feature set and price in the performance-class segment of tape automation --is the first and only LTO-2 tape autoloader available for an estimated street price below $5,000, even with robust features traditionally found only in more expensive tape automation products. The autoloader offers users 1.4 TB of native capacity and data transfer speed of up to 187 GB per hour with one Ultrium LTO-2 drive and seven tape cartridges, and it will soon be available with Ultrium LTO-3, which will double the Magnum 1x7's capacity and speed.

"The Magnum 1x7 autoloader is a breakthrough tape storage product for the Apple customer because its low price makes the speed and capacity of LTO affordable for the thousands of companies that want to step up to LTO automation for their backup needs," said Tom Ward, president and CEO of Exabyte. "We are proud that the Magnum 1x7 supports Mac OS X Server and is now available through the Apple Store. Exabyte has a long commitment to the Apple platform and the Magnum 1x7 is a significant new addition to our popular line of tape storage products for Apple users."

"The combination of Mac OS X Server, Xserve G5 and Xserve RAID provides an unrivalled high-performance solution for our government and enterprise customers," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're excited to see Exabyte help provide excellent data protection by developing this LTO automation backup tape solution for Mac OS X Server."

The Magnum 1x7 is also available bundled with TOLIS BRU Basic software. Because the software is customized, or "tuned," to automatically recognize and configure the autoloader, end users are able to reduce implementation time to minutes and eliminate configuration errors. The bundle effectively makes the Magnum 1x7 "plug and play" for Apple users.

The Magnum 1x7 LTO Tape Autoloader is available immediately through the Apple Store and through Exabyte's global distribution and reseller networks.
