Learn options and strategies, including how continuous data protection (CDP) technology makes any point-in-time recovery possible and how EchoStream technology has significantly improved the recovery time and data recovery points for AIX.

The State of Resilience on IBM Power Systems

This report includes the input of over 4,000 companies surveyed during 2009 that run AIX and IBM i (i5/OS) environments. The survey focuses on data protection and recovery technologies/strategies as well as migration plans to new IBM Power System servers.

The Value of iLayer Management: A Technical Brief

Quantum developed the Scalar tape libraries with integrated iLayer management software that gives our tape libraries disk-like management features to boost backup reliability, reduce service calls, speed up issue resolution, and lower users’ operating expenses.

Long-Term Data Protection and Retention: Finding the Correct Balance

IT organizations of all sizes contend with a growing data footprint with more data to manage, protect and preserve for longer periods of time. Long-term data retention requires a combination of ultra-low cost, good performance during storage and retrieval, and reduced footprint in terms of power, cooling, floor-space and economics.

Long Term Data Retention: 5 Key Considerations

This technology brief provides 5 topics to think about as you design your long-term data retention plans.

Need a Long-Term Archive Solution? Quantum Adds LTO-5 to Scalar Tape Libraries

Clipper Group's Analyst, David Reine, reviews the role of tape in a modern data center and the importance of LTO-5 technology. He also discusses the advantages of the Scalar i6000 tape library, iLayer technology as well as iLayer MeDIA (Media Data Integrity Analysis) – an exclusive Quantum feature.

Why Organizations Need LTO-5 Today

For years, tape storage systems have played a key role in efforts to store data for backup and retrieval, archiving, and contingency planning purposes. More recently, tape has been called on to help preserve and safeguard data to meet data retention laws and regulations.
