Greener IT needs push tape purchases:

The Qualstar XLS Enterprise tape library family allows for affordable, green powered backup and archival of your data. We are seeing a resurgence of interest in tape libraries now that LTO-5 tapes are affordable ($70)and hold 1.5TB per cartridge. Coupled with policy-based archival software that we have found to cost just 1/3rd that of the library hardware, cost conscious users can address spiraling growth rates and incur 200+% less energy costs vs. disk solutions. Please inquire for a quick cost illustration of a base model system with archival software. 
Note: Due to the current floods in Thailand, disk drive prices are flunctuating and we are seeing minor allocations. Now may be a good time to overhaul your backup hardware, as tape drives are not affected.

RelData's New 9400 Series arrays provide block and file consolidation. Redundant high performance head units coupled with 45 bay JBODs for easy expansion are an ideal solution for clients wanting iSCSI SAN plus NAS/NFS and replication/virtualization and migration, even from existing legacy storage. These come standard with (8) 1Gb ports for data [that can be aggregated] plus a dual 10GbE option is shipping. Shopping for SAN? We invite you to request more details and view a webinar to receive a DiskVaults.com Superman T-Shirt.  (while supplies last)
Our Note: High IOPS, provisioned snapshot technology, great prices and a sophisticated tool/reporting menu make this a great SAN/NAS option.
