The SXL-8 archive system includes a XenData SX-250 Archive Server and an eight-slot LTO-7 autoloader. Seven of the slots are for LTO cartridges and the eighth is dedicated as a mail slot which allows convenient import and export of cartridges. In addition to the 7 cartridges within the autoloader, the system will manage an unlimited number of offline cartridges. If file restores are infrequent, the SXL-8 is a very economical approach for managing large digital archives which can scale to many petabytes.
The autoloader minimizes the need for operator intervention when compared to a system with external LTO drives. When blank cartridges are available within the autoloader, the system will automatically initialize and use these when cartridges become full. If automatic LTO cartridge replication is used, the system can be scheduled to update replica cartridges over-night to minimize unnecessary cartridge swaps. When operator intervention is required to exchange full LTO tapes for new blank cartridges, the system will issue email alerts.
The system is powered by an SX-250 Archive Server which runs a Windows 2012 R2 operating system and XenData6 Server software. It has a 6 TB disk cache which is used intelligently to provide fast archive and restore operations. Archiving occurs at the speed of disk without any of the delays associated with the access time of LTO cartridges. Restoring multiple files is optimized in the system, as files are read from LTO in tape order, minimizing total tape movement.

Key Features
  • Ideal for automating the handling of offline media
  • Automates the handling of unlimited cartridges on the shelf
  • Powered by the SX-250 Archive Server
  • Great compatibility

Powered by the SX-250 Archive Server
The system is powered by an SX-250 Archive Server which runs a Windows 2012 R2 operating system and XenData6 Server software. It has a 6 TB disk cache which is used intelligently to provide fast archive and restore operations. Archiving occurs at the speed of disk without any of the delays associated with the access time of LTO cartridges. Restoring multiple files is optimized in the system, as files are read from LTO in tape order, minimizing total tape movement.
Great compatibility
Files are presented in a standard file/folder structure which is typically shared over the network. This means that the archive appears like disk. Files are transferred to and from the archive locally or using either the standard Windows network protocol (CIFS/SMB) or FTP file transfers. In addition, the system provides an object storage interface using an XML API. These interface options mean that the system works with most media asset management and third party systems used in the creative video industry. Alternatively, video files may be archived and restored manually to a file-folder structure using Windows Explorer or FTP utilities.
