Virtual Tape Library
Affordable, scalable, flexible. When you need disk-based backup and recovery that
provides uncompromising support for growth, can be deployed as VTL or disk volumes,
and doesn't break your IT budget, the REO 4600 is your choice. With the ability
to scale from 12TB to 240TB, the REO 4600 is ideal for businesses of any size.
Configurations begin with a 12-drive appliance module. Expansion is facilitated
by adding up to four E2000 SAS-connected expansion arrays. Each E2000 delivers 6,
12 or 24TB, depending upon the drive size you choose. Hardware compression effectively
gives the REO 4600 a total of 240TB compressed capacity without affecting performance
or useable virtual tape capacity.
It's easy to configure the REO 4600 as a virtual tape library and/or any mix of
standalone virtual tape drives or disk volumes (LUNs) for maximum flexibility. Patent-pending
Dynamic Virtual TapeTM (DVT) ensures that no storage capacity is wasted
while eliminating the manual effort and guesswork of sizing, configuring, provisioning,
and deleting virtual tape cartridges. With DVT, users can create virtual tape cartridges
that automatically expand or shrink as needed to match the exact capacity requirements
of the backup operation.
The REO 4600 is compatible with all popular open systems or Windows-based backup
software, physical tape drives, and libraries. It connects easily to Ethernet (iSCSI)
or Fibre Channel (FC) networks and a simple browser-based interface, proactive monitoring,
and remote management capabilities combine to make the 4600 simple and cost effective
