Qualstar LTO Tape Solutions

ATTO XstreamCORE 8200 is a 1U bridge that allows Qualstar tape libraries to connect to Ethernet networks. Each bridge will allow a maximum of 64 local or remote hosts to connect with up to 16 SAS tape drives using the iSCSI or iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA using RoCE V2) protocols.


Easily map tape drives to one or more hosts - and remap if necessary due to failures or maintenance downtime using a command line interface or the ATTO XstreamVIEW™ web based management console. The tape drives respond as if directly connected to the hosts.


ATTO XstreamCORE intelligent bridges are more than simple protocol converters. ATTO’s exclusive xCORE acceleration engine implements the entire TCP/IP stack in hardware without CPU intervention. Designed for deterministic latency, the result is hardware-accelerated iSCSI with less than two microseconds of added latency.


ATTO XstreamCORE intelligent bridges also include Advanced Tape Error Recovery technology that works to reduce the impact of tape errors on the completion of backups and restores. Save time and money during installs and troubleshooting with advanced monitoring and diagnostic capabilities. A persistent time-stamped event log can gather over 40,000 software, hardware and network events.
