Quantum Scalar i500 Tape Automation Revenue Surpasses $1 Billion

Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that it has generated more than $1 billion in revenue to date from sales of its Scalar i500 tape library.* The Scalar i500 is the best-selling tape library in Quantum's history, and the $1 billion milestone reflects the platform's strength, continued innovation and broad-based customer adoption. Quantum also announced an expansion of its long-time partnership with Benchmark Electronics, which has been manufacturing the Scalar i500 since its introduction.

"Reaching this major milestone reflects the important role tape continues to play as an extremely cost-effective, energy-efficient and resilient technology for long-term data retention, archive and disaster recovery," said Robert Clark, senior vice president, Data Protection Group, Quantum. "With this in mind, we're continuing to build on our position as the market share leader in open systems tape automation, adding new products and features. In just the last year, for example, we've introduced a new high-density Scalar® enterprise library and a new Scalar LTFS appliance, incorporated LTO-6 technology and expanded our line of StorNext® archive enabled libraries for big data management."

Scalar i500: Best-in-Class Platform
Designed for midrange and enterprise environments, the Scalar i500 offers best-in-class scalability, reliability, intelligence and management. Key features include:
- Integrated iLayer™ software for proactive monitoring and remote diagnostics that significantly reduces management and issue resolution time,
- Capacity-on-demand scalability to accommodate data growth without disruption,
- Extended Data Life Management for ensuring long-term integrity of archived data,
- Advanced security features such as access control and FIPS-compliant encryption key management that safeguard data in the library or offsite,
- LTO-6 technology for much greater performance and scalability than previous LTO generations, and
- Easy integration with disk backup to provide cost-effective tiered storage.

The Scalar i500 platform also serves as the foundation for Quantum's StorNext AEL500, which combines automated, policy-based tiering and tape for archiving big data.
