Exabyte adds new tape storage

Exabyte has announced the release of the Magnum 1X7 LTO Autoloader, a 2U, rack-mountable, automated backup and restore system for less that US$5,000.

The new Magnum 1X7 product features a single LTO (linear tape open) drive and room for seven tape cartridges. It provides as much as 187GB per hour data transfer speed and 1.4TB of native storage capacity.

"We believe this is a very important product because it brings the speed and capacity of LTO to a price point that is more affordable to a large number of customers," said Tom Ward, president and CEO of Exabyte.

Ward said the new product, while aiming for a new low price point for LTO drive technology, also includes some high-end features, such as a barcode reader to track tape cartridges and an Ethernet port to allow remote management.

Exabyte has been on a cost-cutting campaign of late. In October, for instance, the company introduced the VXA Packet X Tapes, which reduced the price of tape cartridges to better compete with and replace DDS tape.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
