In an effort to counter the ever-increasing Internet data explosion, Sun Microsystems Inc. Monday introduced an enterprise-class tool that addresses tape back-up requirements.
The Sun (SUNW) StorEdge L700 tape library is designed to enable customers in data-intensive environments to access stored data within seconds. In addition, the high-capacity Sun StorEdge L700 tape library works to backup 3.5 TB of data in less than eight hours, the firm said.
The new Sun StorEdge L700 tape library is now shipping. An entry-level configuration is list priced at $194,000. A full configuration is list priced at $625,000.
"As a result of the Internet data explosion, backup windows are shrinking and approaching zero," said Raj Das, director of product marketing for Sun Network Storage. "The Sun StorEdge L700 tape library is an ideal solution with industrial-strength performance that brings backup from offline speed to online speed, and makes stored data accessible within a matter of seconds."
