Fujitsu-Siemens peddles new SMB storage kit

FibreCATs Ho!

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Fujitsu-Siemen's storage division is hawking a new tape storage solution for SMBs. It says its groovily-dubbed FibreCAT TX24 eliminates human error in the backup process.

The TX24 has a capacity of 19.2 terabytes, running for five weeks without needing to change tapes. Data transfer rates for the machine's up to 24 slots are 24 MB/s (LTO-2) and 80 MB/s (LTO-3). Fujitsu-Siemens says this'll be boosted by a fibre channel connection available later in the year.

If not all 24 are needed at first they say it can be easily up or downgraded.

Storage VP Helmut Beck honked: “With the FibreCAT TX24, companies can enter the world of automatic data backup at a price they can afford and upgrade the system quickly and easily as their needs grow. At the same time, the system offers users an easy way to start media cloning, thus enabling a very high standard of data backup.”

Other features of the compact rack-mounted unit include error logging via USB and automatic media cloning, where double copies are made in a belt and braces approach to data disaster tolerance.

The FibreCAT TX24 is available now.®
