Description


The X2500-SAS is an LTO-6 archive system that connects to a workstation via a SAS connection. The system includes the following:

◊ External IBM LTO-6 drive

◊ XenData6 Workstation software

◊ PCI-e card to be installed in the workstation providing two SAS ports.

◊ SAS cable that connects the LTO-6 drive to the PCI-e card (2m in length)

◊ Universal LTO cleaning cartridge


The XenData6 Workstation software runs on either a 64 bit Windows 10, 8.1 or 7 operating system and provides high performance archiving to and restoring from LTO cartridges using Windows Explorer.

The X2500-SAS is extremely easy to use. Archive and restore operations are always performed using Windows Explorer: the XenData software extends Explorer's capabilities to transfer files to and from LTO using drag and drop or copy and paste. Files may be archived to LTO from any accessible logical drive letter or network share. Similarly, files may be restored to an available drive letter or share.

Functionality includes:

◊ Writes to LTO using either LTFS or TAR formats

◊ Maintains file and folder structures, allowing easy transfer of nested folders to and from LTO

◊ All file types are supported from DPX to MXF or even Word docs

◊ End to End Logical Block Protection which verifies the integrity of the file written to LTO in real time

◊ Manages an unlimited number of offline LTO cartridges

◊ Ability to browse or search for files including those that are offline

◊ Ability to run reports that provides tape content and file search information even for offline LTO cartridges

◊ Faster file restores because the XenData6 Workstation software restores files in tape order

◊ No interleaved file blocks when archiving multiple simultaneous files for better data integrity and faster restores

◊ Robust capability to restore files from cartridges after misuse such as a power failure to the LTO drive while writing.

The X2500-SAS is a reliable and easy-to-use archive system that runs on a Windows workstation for data wrangling applications or to create a managed offline LTO archive.
