Dec 9, 2005, Yorktown, Virginia – Cybernetics has just announced availability of the miSAN® V6, a network appliance with D2D2T backup, tape virtualization and an integral AIT or LTO-2 tape drive. The miSAN® V6 combines any of the full-line of Cybernetics' AIT tape drives or the L272 LTO-2 tape drive with a hot-swap disk array and Cybernetics' HSTC™ tape virtualization engine to provide an integrated, all-in-one D2D2T backup solution. This is the latest model in the miSAN® product line, improving upon the miSAN® V8 by adding an integral AIT or LTO-2 tape drive. This model is just as effective as the miSAN® V8, but now with integrated offloading capability.
This innovative D2D2T solution allows network users to store backup data on disk in a virtual tape format for quick, easy access and then offload the virtual tapes to the integral AIT or LTO-2 tape drive for local and offsite media archiving. The integral AIT or LTO-2 tape drive also allows for importing and restoring data from archived tape media, making the miSAN® V6 a complete disaster recovery tool.
The miSAN® V6 is easy to install, use, and manage. It simply connects to a standard Ethernet network with an IP address. Users access the miSAN® V6 backup resources over the network using iSCSI technology. Administrators can use the intuitive Web-browser based software to remotely allocate, assign, and monitor usage and status of disk capacity and tape backup resources.
