IBC 2023: Symply Ethernet-Connected LTO Appliances

Starting at $7,999

Symply announces a nrange of LTO appliances with Ethernet connectivity that expands the SymplyPRO family.

Symply Unveils Ethernet Connected Lto Appliances

Designed for Ethernet-based and hyperconverged environments including M&E, enterprises and data centres, the SymplyPRO Ethernet LTO appliances provide secure, shared access to LTO tape drives over a 10GbE network.

Elevating Data Protection with Network Efficiency
By moving LTO to a dedicated Ethernet fabric, a user experiences a new level of performance, scalability, and dispersed ease of use for important data protection initiatives.

By deploying the appliances on a network, organizations can reduce reliance on dedicated and expensive servers by dispersing and de-centralizing data protection tasks with readily available high-speed access to LTO technology.

Configuration Flexibility
SymplyPRO Ethernet LTO appliances are available with half-height LTO drives in single and dual-drive desktop and 1RU configurations, with 2RU rackmount configurations featuring full-height LTO drives offering native performance up to 400MB/s per drive. Dual 10GbE SFP+ interfaces offer flexibility in network connectivity. The appliance can support either an additional 2 LTO drives via a SymplyPRO SAS LTO making a total of 4 LTOs, or the appliance can be connected to a LTO tape library installed with one or 2 LTO drives, providing flexibility.

Heart of Performance: A Potent ARM Processor
At the core of these appliances lies a potent ARM processor, enabling fast command processing and data traversal on distinct pathways. This results in maximum block transfer sizes to the LTO drives across the Ethernet network, while integrated data acceleration technology ensures optimal performance without straining host system compute resources. Resultantly, SymplyPRO Ethernet LTO appliances provide a 20% performance increase over conventional SAS-connected LTO drives. With dedicated Dual 10GbE network connectivity, client systems can achieve aggregated performance of up to 2,000MB/sec when reading from or writing to the LTO appliances.

Your Pathway to Enterprise-Class LTO Storage
Our vision for these new Ethernet-connected appliances is to make enterprise LTO storage readily accessible for organizations of all sizes,” said Keith Warburton, CEO, Symply. “By moving LTO to a dedicated Ethernet fabric, a user experiences a new level of performance, scalability, and dispersed ease of use for important data protection initiatives.

Key features of the SymplyPRO Ethernet LTO appliances include:

  • Dual 10GbE SFP+ modular connectivity
  • ARM processor for optimized performance and reduced host-CPU load
  • Up to 2,000MB/sec aggregate performance across 10Gb/s networks
  • Built-in LTFS support for easy data interoperability
  • Support for data protection ISVs
  • Intuitive interface and diagnostics for easy setup and troubleshooting

The new SymplyPRO Ethernet LTO appliances are available to order, starting at $7,999 and can be seen on the Symply stand at IBC 2023.
