Quantum Scalar i500: Overview

The Scalar i500 is the intelligent library platform that gives growing midrange storage environments faster, easier, and more reliable data protection. The Scalar i500 combines modular design with continuous robotics to provide industry-leading scalability, performance, and reliability. Designed with the iPlatform architecture and the iLayer management approach, the Scalar i500 makes backup easier to manage. Its proactive monitoring and remote diagnostics can reduce service calls by 50% and shorten issue resolution times by 30%. Its capacity-on-demand scalability lets it grow non-disruptively with users' data. And the Scalar i500 is designed to integrate easily with disk backup making it the perfect library for next-generation backup architectures. With the Scalar i500, IT managers can be assured they will have reliable, high-performance backup, certain restores, and effective long term protection for years into the future, no matter how their storage needs evolve.
