Quantum Scalar i3 6U+ Library Expansion Kit P/N: LSC33-ALEK-001A

Used when adding one or more 3U expansion modules to a Scalar i3 library without expansion modules (control module only). Includes robot cable spool and 6U+ rackmount kit. Only one library expansion kit is needed per library. Customer installable, but onsite expansion kit installation (SSC33-NLEK-000x) is recommended.


The Easy, Efficient, and Scalable Tape Library

The Scalar i3 tape library is designed for ease of use from initial setup to ongoing management. With features like best-in-class storage density, providing up to 1.5PB in just 3U and up to 6PB in 12U, along with 80 PLUS-certified power supplies, Scalar i3 enables users to reduce their tape footprint and lower their power and cooling costs, ensuring savings on more than just the initial purchase. Scalar i3 simplifies growth management with a modular design and Capacity-on-Demand (CoD) scalability. It can scale cartridge slots from 25 slots up to 200—instantly—with CoD software licensing, providing compressed capacities from 750TB up to 6PB. And users can add read/write performance as needed, with support for up to 12 tape drives. With the partitioning feature, Scalar i3 can provide data protection and archiving in a single library as a valuable tool to address today’s IT challenges.

Features and Benefits

iLayer Intelligent Software
Brings system setup and management to a whole new level of ease, saving valuable time.

Capacity-on-Demand Growth
Simplifies storage provisioning by scaling capacity quickly and easily, without disruption.

Best-in-Class Storage Density
Saves valuable data center footprint with the highest tape storage per rack U.

80 PLUS-Certified Power Supplies
High efficiency, green power supplies minimize power and cooling costs.

Advanced Reporting
Media, drive, and media security reports help balance system resources, improve security, and improve budget and planning. Automated report scheduling and distribution save time.

High Availability Features
Redundant power supplies and control path failover reduce downtime in the event of failure.

Proactive Monitoring and Diagnostics
Resolves issues before impacting operations, to maximize system uptime and minimize operational expenses.

Encryption Key Management
FIPS-validated solution with KMIP support makes it easy to manage keys, mitigating risk of lost data. AES 256-bit encryption standard for highest levels of security.
