EMC Taps ADIC for Tape Libraries

   EMC has announced that starting next month it will expand its information lifecycle management (ILM) offerings by reselling Scalar tape libraries from Advanced Digital Information Corporation (ADIC). ADIC will in turn resell EMC's CLARiiON CX series networked storage devices as part of its Pathlight VX virtual tape solution. "By selecting ADIC as our partner, EMC now provides customers the option of a tape solution for nearline storage and offsite vaulting, completing the final tier of storage in an ILM strategy," said Howard Elias, EMC executive vice president of corporate marketing and Office of Technology.
   ADIC's Scalar automated tape libraries, which include the Scalar 24, Scalar 100, Scalar i2000, and Scalar 10K models, use Linear Tape-Open (LTO) tape drive technology. According to EMC and ADIC, the Scalar family features integrated Storage Area Network (SAN) support, intelligent monitoring and alerting functions, capacity-on-demand scalability, and optional fully redundant robotics and controllers for high availability operations. ADIC's Pathlight VX virtual tape solution, which will now include the CLARiiON CX networked storage drive, uses a combination of disk and tape in one integrated system for increased backup and restore performance. The products will be available in July.
