XenData, Inc. has launched a range of SX-500 archive servers for archiving video assets to LTO-5 robotic tape libraries and RAID.


Digital video archives based on SX-500 series servers can scale to manage over 100TB of RAID, multiple petabytes of near-line LTO storage and an unlimited capacity of offline LTO-5 data tapes, addressing the archiving needs of most broadcasters, video production companies and the media operations within corporations, non-profit organizations and governmental entities.

SX-500 archive servers are offered in three models that provide different levels of performance. Each model is a 2U rack-mount unit that manages a LTO data tape library and RAID, providing a network file system interface. This creates a scalable NAS device where files are written to LTO tapes and disk.

The servers are configurable to manage a range of LTO tape libraries, including those from Dell, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Oracle/Storagetek, Overland Storage, Qualstar, Quantum, Sony, Spectra Logic and Tandberg Data.
