Quantum has continually sought the advice of our extensive user base to help define and plot the course of the next generation of tape libraries. The design and implementation of the PX720 is no different. Based on thorough customer feedback, the PX720 was uniquely engineered to deliver what customers expect plus additional features to place it in a class of its own.
The PX720's fifth generation, time-tested robotics ensure unmatched reliability and uptime. With standard redundant features such as fans and power supplies, IT professionals do not have to choose between high-availability and price. Easily serviced and upgraded from the front or rear of the library, the PX720 was designed to get online and stay online.
The PX720 can integrate into a variety of network environments. With multiple connectivity options to choose from and a wide assortment of supported drive types such as SDLT 320, SDLT 600, DLT-S4, LTO-2, LTO-3 and LTO-4, IT professionals can mix and match interfaces (FC, SCSI and GbE) or drive types (nFC and SCSI) to address network consolidation pain-points.
The PX720 supports from one to twenty drives and 726 media slots in a single frame and can scale to over 3,600 media slots with the unique CrosslinkT Mechanism. The Capacity on Demand (CoD) feature allows you to buy the capacity you need today and incrementally add capacity as your data requirements increase while Performance on Demand (PoD) allows you to meet changing performance requirements.
The PX720 delivers enterprise class features at a superior value. With innovative features such as Web-based management and monitoring, redundant power supplies, and cooling plus installation and training at no additional charge, the PX720 offers IT professionals an exceptional tape library at a price they can afford. With additional cost saving concepts like CoD and PoD, you can buy what you need today and upgrade when you need to.
