BANGALORE: Quantum ATL, a supplier of intelligent DLTape automation products,

and a subsidiary of Quantum Corporation, has launched its P7000 and P4000

enterprise-class libraries.


P7000 and P4000 are the next generation automated libraries based on the

architecture and features of the P3000 and P2000 tape libraries.

According to Scott Maccabe, senior vice president-sales, marketing

and service, Quantum ATL, "These libraries deliver on the SAN/NAS, high
capacity, throughput and connectivity for shared storage applications for

companies that implement a SAN, but find capacity and throughput inadequate for

data intensive applications."

The P7000 has up to 16 tape drives and 679 cartridges, and up to 149 TB capacity
and 1.7 TB/hour performance. It can scale up to 64 drives, 500 TB capacity and

TB capacity and 1GB/hour performance. The p4000 can scale up to the same

performance as that of P7000.
