Sep 7, 2007, Yorktown, Virginia – Cybernetics has announced the immediate availability of its new CY-L800 tape drives with an Ultra320 LVDS high speed interface. With 800 GB to 2.4TB per cartridge at speeds up to 864 GB/hour, the new Ultrium 4 is very smart backup. A single tape can store about a thousand copies of the Encyclopedia Britannica, and it can accomplish that in less than an hour.
An industry first, the new LTO-4 tape drives feature embedded AES 256 bit data encryption. Standardized across all LTO-4 drive technologies, the encryption feature can be implemented using third-party ISV software-based key management products. Cybernetics offers an optional full featured encryption key management solution delivering intuitive access management features and easy to maintain physical key control features.
The new CY-L800 is the fourth generation of Cybernetics' solid, proven LTO Ultrium technology solutions, maintaining full read and write compatibility with the previous generation LTO-3 tape media. Also backward read compatible with legacy LTO-2 media, this new drive is the perfect migration path for our LTO customers.
Cybernetics offers a wide variety of LTO-4 configurations, including direct SCSI and Ethernet network attached tape drives, performance tape arrays, and disk-disk-tape solutions. Coupled with an HSTC™ or miSAN®® virtual tape library, the new CY-L800 minimizes the number of tape cartridges required by concentrating select archival backup copies onto very high capacity removable media. Customers enjoy reduced dependency on physical tape media, and the headaches associated with managing vast stores of tape cartridges resulting in excellent security, value and ROI - the bottom line.
