KEY BENEFITS

icon-set-nodeum-cleanup-white_user EASY ACCESS TO FILES

End users can access files with an explorer-compatible view and easily use "drag and drop" without needing administrator intervention. File access from LTFS tape is quick, measured in seconds, with file transfers reaching speeds of up to 900MB/s in compressed mode and 360MB/s in native mode.

 
Nodeum_Icon_Tape_227 EXPAND ARCHIVE CAPACITY

The solution enables high scalability by easily adding tape cartridges to the tape library. And even more, by connecting multiple tape libraries. 

Hardware upgrades are non-disruptive, and more storage capacity can be managed with fewer resources.

 
icon-set-nodeum-cleanup-white_cost-reduction2 REDUCE STORAGE COSTS

Data mover move less used data from primary storage to tape storage, thus reducing the overall cost of storage.

Furthermore, tape storage is seen as a green storage. This has an impact on the electric bills but also decreases cooling requirements.
