Nov 11, 2021


ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments for over 30 years announces a compact tape archive and backup solution through their partnership with leading data storage solutions provider Qualstar Corporation.

The solution features ATTO XstreamCORE® ET 8200 intelligent Bridges and Qualstar Q24 Compact LTO tape libraries. XstreamCORE adds 40Gb Ethernet connectivity to up to 16 SAS Q24 tape libraries per bridge. This creates a highly flexible LTO tape backup solution that takes up minimal space and can be located offsite for remote backup and archive.

“This solution is unique in that it takes up so little space but packs a punch in features, performance and utility,” says Timothy J. Klein president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “IT architects looking for a remote backup and archive solution but have limited space to work with will be happy with this.”

From simple installation to easy maintenance, the Qualstar Q24 Compact LTO tape library is designed with reliability and the customer experience in mind. Feature-rich and compact in a rack-mountable 2U enclosure, the Q24 offers capacities of up to 288 terabytes (native) and 720 terabytes (compressed). The integrated browser-based remote management interface allows for set up, management and troubleshooting of the Q24 from anywhere in the world.

ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 is a unique intelligent protocol bridge that connects Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) LTO tape drives to Ethernet networks via iSCSI or iSER. It enables reliable high-performance remote Ethernet connectivity to SAS tape devices cost-effectively using patent-pending technology.

This is the third announcement this year to come from the partnership between ATTO and Qualstar. Other announcements include a Thunderbolt™ capable ultra-portable LTO tape solution and the addition of ATTO ExpressSAS® 12Gb H1280 GT SAS/SATA host bus adapters to the Qualstar product catalog.
