Small Sites Need Better Backup, Too

Small Sites Require Offline Data Protection

Data growth does not limit itself to larger data centers. Smaller data centers face the same challenges of protecting terabytes of data from loss, malware, and potential damage to facilities in central and remote locations and limited IT staff.

Tape storage is the perfect backup and archive media to address all the retention, protection and compliance requirements SMB’s have —it is also economical, portable, and it provides air-gapped protection against ransomware. With tape storage, you can manage backups and long-term data in a simple to install and operate 2U rack-mounted automated tape system that can be left unattended or easily managed by IT staff with limited tape library training to deliver strong offline data protection to meet all compliance requirements.

Efficient Data Protection with Quantum SuperLoader 3

Quantum’s SuperLoader® 3 puts the power and economy of the latest LTO tape technology into a low-profile, affordable, easy-to-manage automated backup and archive appliance. It scales easily as data grows, supports backup volumes up to 720* TB of capacity in a 2U form factor, and with the included DATASTOR Shield backup software with deduplication, you can reduce your data by up to 20x so that you can store more data per tape than in other competitive models.
*2.5:1 compression, 20:1 deduplication with LTO-9.

Quantum SuperLoader 3 also includes a bar-code reader as a standard feature to simplify media management. To simplify administration, the SuperLoader 3 comes with management software that uses intelligent diagnostics to monitor the system over the Internet and provide proactive remote service.
