SGL And Qualstar Package Entry Level Archive Solution

​SGL has partnered with Qualstar to bundle Qualstar’s entry-level LT06/LT07 tape library with SGL’s FlashPack entry-level archive.

The package is targeted at small-to-medium broadcasters and media companies that want a complete archive, content management and LTO library solution. The combination includes features for a integrated, scalable media archive including: hardware, software, support and integration with a MAM or production system.

SGL's FlashPack is claimed ideal for broadcasters, sports venues, post production facilities, corporate communications and other organisations that need to manage their media assets.

Qualstar’s Q24 LTO tape library offers capacities up to 144 terabytes (native). Its menu-driven graphical built-in operator control panel is easy to use and this identical functionality can also be accessed via an integrated browser-based remote management interface. This enables IT administrators to remotely configure, manage and diagnose the library from anywhere in the world via the internet. All field replaceable components, such as the tape drives, power supply and controller board are removable with standard tools.

“Today’s customer is looking for a fully integrated and tested archiving solution to manage their business needs and provide the best storage architecture needed to grow their organization,” said Arun Vaishampayan, VP Global Sales, Qualstar. “Qualstar’s partnership with SGL creates a solution that we believe will provide the requisite capacity, capability and technical advantages to achieve the needed edge.”

Douglas Wynn, SGL’s VP Sales America adds, “This is an ideal entry-level, self-contained solution that provides small-to-medium facilities with sophisticated archive and storage tools that are fully secure and scalable, allowing the system to grow with them.”
