Companies Deliver SAN Backup/Restore Bundle

BakBone Software(TM), Inc. Qualstar Corporation and Vixel Corporationhave assembled a pre-tested turnkey and Solaris-based bundle for optimizing SAN deployments and enabling the restoration and backup of corporate-critical data. The solution is aimed at mid-sized businesses.

The end-to-end bundle includes: Qualstar's TLS-8466 and TLS-4222 tape libraries. The TLS-8466 contains two HP(R) Ultrium-1 LTO tape drives, with a total native storage capacity of 6.6TB; the TLS-4222 library contains two Sony(R) AIT-2 tape drives, yielding a native capacity of 1.1TB; BakBone's NetVault(TM) (Solaris Workgroup Edition) SAN-native backup/restore software; Vixel's 7000 Series Fibre Channel Fabric switches; and Emulex's LP8000 (and LP8000S) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).

"The mid-sized market demands a SAN solution that combines simplicity, power and reliability," said Bob Abraham, principal analyst at Freeman Reports. "Many companies have talked about producing a turnkey hardware/software bundle to address this problem. BakBone, Qualstar and Vixel have responded, making it possible for smaller companies to quickly implement a sophisticated storage solution capable of meeting their growing needs and producing a conflicts, while allowing the full benefits of best of breed SAN technology."

This bundle is available for immediate delivery through Qualstar's network of solution providers.
