WALNUT CREEK, Calif., December 10, 2019 (Newswire.com) - XenData, the global provider of data storage solutions, launches the X1 Archive Appliance that connects to a network and allows file-based applications to seamlessly archive to LTO external drives, Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) drives or cloud object storage. The appliance runs Windows 10 Pro and is powered by XenData Archive Series and FS Mirror software.
The archive appears locally as a single logical drive – the X: drive. And there are multiple ways to write to and restore files from it:
- Share the X: drive over the network and write to it and restore from it like any disk-based share.
- Use FS Mirror to synchronize one or more locally accessible file systems or file shares to the LTO archive.
- Use FS Mirror to create archive drop-boxes on the network that automatically move files to the archive.
- Use third-party applications that integrate with XenData’s XML API.
The X1 is available in three models: for LTO external drives, ODA external drives and for cloud. Each model is based on Intel NUC hardware and includes a high-endurance 1.92 TB SSD cache for enhanced performance.
The X1 for LTO connects to an LTO external drive via Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3. And for LTO drives with SAS connections, they may be connected via a Thunderbolt to SAS converter. The appliance manages an unlimited number of LTO cartridges and up to two billion files. It enables file transfers that span across cartridges and, when using two or more attached LTO drives, it supports automatic cartridge replication.
The X1 for ODA supports Gen 1, 2 and 3 drives with cartridge capacities up to 5.5 TB. They connect to the X1 via USB 3. As with LTO, the X1 manages an unlimited number of cartridges and it supports file transfers that use the 1.92 TB cache to span cartridges.
The X1 model for archiving to cloud storage supports multiple clouds including AWS S3, Azure and Wasabi S3. The system may be configured to replicate files to different cloud locations and different cloud providers.
The X1 Archive Appliance is immediately available. The models for managing an LTO or ODA external drive are priced at $5,950 and the X1 for Cloud starts at $2,495.
