XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers A series of archive servers based on IT standards, designed for the demanding requirements of the media and entertainment industry. September 2013
1Gb oor XenData SX-520 Series Archive Servers NAS Architecture – storing on RAID and LTO SX-520 Series server runs Windows Server and XenData6 Server software; includes RAID. Network Share over 1 GbE or 10 GbE LTO Tape Library
XenData SX-520 Series Archive Servers Standard Windows File System The XenData software virtualizes the RAID, LTO library and off-line LTO cartridges, presenting them as a single volume: ++= disk Internal RAID LTO Library Externalized LTO
XenData SX-520 Series Archive Servers Broad Application Compatibility File/folder interface means the solution works with most applications – from MAMs to Windows Explorer to Finder. No need to load any special software on client computers. Supports multiple simultaneous applications. Multiple LTO cartridge groups can be configured for each application by mapping folders to specific cartridge groups.
XenData SX-520 Series Archive Servers Designed for Networks NAS architecture makes it easy to deploy. RAID cache delivers high performance in a network. Interfaces via 1 GigE or 10 GigE. Supports CIFS/SMB or FTP.
XenData SX-520 Series Archive Servers Support Windows, Mac and FTP Clients – plus local transfers Windows, Mac and FTP clients are natively supported. Locally the archive volume appears as a logical drive letter.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Fast Archiving At the speed of RAID. The system does not wait for LTO cartridges to be mounted.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Fast Restoring The system restores queues of files in the shortest possible time. Restore requests are processed to tape order to minimize unnecessary tape movement.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Partial Restore Capable Allows a clip to be restored from LTO without need to restore the whole file.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Built-in Data Protection The system will automatically create extra backup copies of LTO cartridges for offsite retention.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Prevent Vendor Lock-In LTO cartridges are written in either the exchange LTFS format or the open standard TAR format. The use of a standard format prevents vendor lock-in – proprietary formats make it very costly to ever switch to another vendor.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Industry Standard Security The archive server integrates fully with the Microsoft security model based on Active Directory.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Manage Unlimited Externalized Cartridges The system manages any number of externalized cartridges, providing an unlimited total capacity. There are no license fees for externalized capacity. When offline files are accessed, the system prompts with alerts and on-screen notifications, identifying the cartridge that should be imported back into the system. A range of different reports helps manage the entire archive including all externalized cartridges.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Strong File Version Control Accidentally over-wrote or deleted a file? No problem; just select the file and restore deleted files or previous versions.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Scale to Multiple Petabytes of Near-Line LTO Scales to support multiple enterprise-class robotic libraries from a wide range of manufacturers including Dell, HP, IBM, Oracle, Overland, Quantum, Qualstar and Spectra Logic.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers High Availability Cluster Option Available The SX-525 is a server cluster that provides high availability. When configured to manage two robotic libraries and mirror files across them, the system has no single point of failure.
XenData SX-520 LTO Archive Servers Worldwide Onsite Support The server hardware comes with onsite support from HP which is available in most locations worldwide
