New de-duplication capabilities added in our virtual tape library storage portfolio


Yesterday we introduced data deduplication technologies in our storage and tape portfolio. The new technologies are part of the Sun StorageTek VTL Prime line, and they lower the overall cost of physical storage by storing only unique data. The StorageTek VTL Prime can be used as a standalone virtual tape library or implemented with the StorageTek VTL Plus for a cost-effective, tiered data protection architecture.

Here is InformationWeek's take on the announcement...

Customer of the week: Elektrofilm


The digital media company Elektrofilm chose Sun's SL3000 tape library to store its nearly 200 TB of archival data, with the capacity to grow to 750 TB.

According to Electrofilm's Jason Williamson, the amount of data in his environment makes storing it all on disk impractical. "The cost of tape media is about 30 cents per GB, while with a SAN, the total cost can add up to tens of dollars a gigabyte," he said.

Sun's SAM-FS software helps Jason improve data access time on tape by keeping track of the data on each cartridge and automatically retrieving it from the tape library when it's needed. The combined solution works perfect for Electrofilm!
