The Quantum Scalar i2000 tape library scales from 100 to 3,492 slots, while holding up to 96 drives. It also supports a capacity of up to 5.6 PB of data. The library uses whats called integral i-Layer management software, which can significantly reduce the time that users spend managing their data backup. This directly cuts the need for service calls and shortens the amount of time it takes for issue resolution.

Perhaps one of the top reasons for upgrading your Quantum Scalar i2000 drives versus replacing your tape library is that the Scalar i2000 uses whats called  “capacity-on-demand” scalability. This scalability allows the Quantum i2000 users to grow their backup system easily as their need for data backup grows from 100 to over  3,400 tape cartridges in one compact, 19-inch rack-compatible form factor.
