$5,950 for X1 Archive Appliance for LTO or ODA, and $2,500 for cloud models

XenData, Inc. launches the X1 Archive Appliance that connects to a network and allows file-based applications to archive to LTO external drives, Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) drives or cloud object storage.

Xendata X1 Appliance

The appliance runs Windows 10 Pro and is powered by XenData Archive Series and FS Mirror software.

Archive appears locally as single logical drive – the X:drive.
And there are multiple ways to write to and restore files from it:

  • Share the X: drive over network and write to it and restore from it like any disk-based share.

  • Use FS Mirror to synchronize one or more locally accessible file systems or file shares to the LTO archive.

  • Use FS Mirror to create archive drop-boxes on network that automatically move files to the archive.

  • Use third party applications that integrate with the company’s XML API.
