SILVER: ADIC Scalar 24

Review of ADIC Scalar 24

Silver Medal: BACKUP HARDWARE

One of our judges summed up the ADIC Scalar 24 in one concise statement: "Using proven technology and the value...

of tape, this one is a ringer." If you're looking for value and performance, going with ADIC's Scalar 24 is a solid choice.

Scalar 24 allows small and midsized companies to get enterprise-level performance. IDC's Senior Research Analyst Robert Amatruda says the Scalar 24 addresses the needs of companies that want a high-density, low-cost library at an aggressive price.

ADIC offers this with one or two drives, with multiple tape technologies and the ability to integrate into a large SAN. The Scalar 24 supports one or two LTO-1 or SDLT320 drives, and up to 24 tape cartridges for up to 64MB/s throughput and 6.8TB of capacity. At a starting price of about $12,500, this is value that's tough to beat.
