About the VXA-1 Packet Tape Drive 1U Rackmount
- 66 GB native capacity
- 1U rackmount package
- VXA technology
Optimize your real estate by consolidating servers, storage, and tape systems into 19-inch racks. The VXATMTM lets you take advantage of the VXA-1 tape drive’s highly reliable backup and restore capabilities in a sleek, one- or two-drive package specifically designed for rack mounting. The VXA RakPak allows you to pack up to 132 GB (2:1 compression) of data in the space of a single rack unit. For lower capacity requirements, it provides up to 66 GB of storage when optionally configured with a single drive.
The VXA RakPak design combines VXA-1 tape drives with a convenient rack-mount chassis that fits securely into standard 19-inch racks. Cooling, power, and grounding requirements are built in. Just secure the unit in your rack, connect your data cables, and plug the power cord into an outlet. All media is easily accessible at the front of the rack and the tape drive LEDs are clearly visible for easy monitoring. As storage requirements grow, additional VXA RakPak units can be easily installed. And, with packet technology, media interchange is assured.
The award-winning VXA-1 tape drives are the first and only drives to use packets, a technology similar to that already proven in the Internet and telecommunications markets. Uniquely addressed, each VXA data packet can be read in any sequence - independent of track shape or geometry. This approach virtually guarantees 100% data restore.
Note: The VXA-2 Tape Drive has not been qualified for integration into RakPak units. RakPak
