The Quantum Scalar i40 library is the easy-to-use tape libraries for the growing storage needs of small and medium-sized businesses, as well as remote office environments of larger enterprises. The Scalar i40 saves time by simplifying everything from initial set-up and on-going management, to adding capacity over time.

iLayer includes proactive diagnostics, which has been shown to reduce service calls by 50%. Proactive diagnostics provide easy-to-understand messages with specific corrective actions, allowing users to avoid downtime and spend more time doing other things besides managing the tape environment.

Keeping up with data growth is simplified with the Scalar i40 tape librarie. The COD (capacity-on-demand) scalability feature enables the library's capacity to grow on demand with users' data - without disruption. Start with 25 slots and scale up to 40 slots with Scalar i40 as your requirements grow, with a software license only - no hardware to purchase or install - providing market leading investment protection.

To keep your sensitive data or proprietary corporate intellectual property safe and to meet the increasing government requirements for compliance, the Scalar i40 supports the US Federal government recommended encryption standard for the highest levels of security. Tape encryption ensures your data is protected even while being stored offsite.

The Scalar i40 provides significant benefits over conventional entry-level tape automation products, including better investment protection and less time managing the tape environment.

The Quantum Scalar i40 includes rackmount kit, one North American and one European power cord. Power cords for other regions should be sourced locally. If not mounting in a rack, customer should purchase a desktop kit. Customer installable, but phone-based installation and training purchase is recommended.

Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by The i40 is a solid device. I got it with a single tape drive and it works well with both Backup Exec and VEEAM as a target for backup files. The web management interface is dated in both looks and usability, but it gets the job done. One disappointment I have is with the cost of the support contract, which can easily cost more than a replacement device over just a few years. March 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 50 + Terra-bytes of storage at a decent price! Once we started backing up full VMs with our old Superloader 3 we started running out of space. We went with the Scalar i40 with LTO5 and 40 slots (33 tape, 2 cleaning, 5 IE station). Configuring was a breeze with the Quantum interface and I simply created one huge partition. Once I connected it to the backup server BackupExec detected the library immediately on boot up. The continuity between BackupExec and the i40 is pretty sweet. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants the capability of backing up full VMs to tape for offsite archival. August 15, 2012
