XenData X40-S LTO Archive Appliance 2U Rackmount for SAS Libraries

Reliable Long-Term Media Storage

An LTO-9 cartridge securely stores 18 TB of content, provides a 30 years lifetime and delivers excellent read and write performance, especially when used with large files like video files. When LTO cartridges are managed in a robotic library with an intelligent archive appliance, such as the X20 or X40-S, they become the ideal automated way to store video content for finished projects.

Offloading to near-line LTO can free up space on your shared disk storage. And if a project becomes active again, it is very easy to restore the content back to your primary disk storage.

Near-line LTO, with its 30 years lifetime, is much more reliable than saving to hard disks and involves minimal manual intervention. And compared to archiving in the cloud, it is much more cost effective, at least for archives with 100 TB or more.

X40-S Overview

The X40-S Appliance is a 2 RU rack-mounted unit that manages an LTO library with a near-line capacity that scales to multiple petabytes.

  • Manages a library unlimited slots and up to 4 SAS or FC LTO drives
  • Manages unlimited externalized LTO cartridges
  • Mounts LTO archive as SMB share
  • Archiving and restoring is like writing to and reading from disk
  • Automatically replicates LTO Cartridges
  • LTFS or TAR Formats
  • 9.6TB internal SSD RAID cache
  • Easy migration to later LTO generations
  • Runs Windows Server 2019
  • Requires minimal operator intervention
  • Worldwide onsite server hardware support
  • Compatible with Quantum, Qualstar, Overland-Tandberg, HPE and IBM Tape Libraries

Application Platform

The X40-S Archive Appliance runs a Windows Server 2019 operating system and can also be used as an application platform, as it allows complementary applications to be installed. This does not just save on hardware, avoiding the need for another server, but it also creates efficient data paths that minimize network traffic. Complementary applications that run well on the X40-S include:

  • Cinegy MAM
  • eMAM
  • FastTracker from Facilis
  • Marquis Project Parking
  • Metus MAM
  • Nearchive from NL Technology for Avid Interplay integration
  • North Shore Automation for CatDV integration

Access from Anywhere

Adding an object storage S3 Server Interface to the X40-S Appliance allows files to be written to and read from the archive from anywhere worldwide using fast and secure HTTPS. The on-premises interface and associated permissions are not affected: the LTO archive continues to be accessible locally using SMB, FTP or NFS. Consequently, the S3 interface is available as a simple upgrade to existing users, as well as for new installations.

Using the S3 Server interface allows an organization to keep the attractive aspects of LTO on-premises archives which include cost effective scalability and adds the ease of distributed access which has traditionally been associated with public cloud storage. And, unlike most public cloud services, files may be remotely downloaded free of any egress charges.

Sync Multiple LTO Archives

The Archive Appliance may be joined to others in a single globally accessible file system using Multi-Site Sync for LTO, XenData’s synchronization service that links multiple S3 enabled LTO archives, creating a single global file system accessible anywhere worldwide. As soon as a file is archived to LTO at one location, it becomes available as a stub file within the global file system. When a user makes a change by writing, overwriting or deleting a file, that change is propagated to all locations. This provides a consistent up-to-date set of files across the entire distributed organization.
