Quantum SuperLoader 3 Tape Autoloader for simple reliable backups

Designed for simple and reliable backups, the SuperLoader 3 offers an exclusive package of advanced features including StorageCare Guardian, remote management, and barcode reader—all at no additional cost. It also gives you the widest range of drive options in the industry to support data requirements up to 1,920TB—with the flexibility to expand as your storage needs grow.

Quantum SuperLoader 3 LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 models now include DATASTOR Shield™ backup software with deduplication to supercharge your backup. Quantum and DATASTOR have teamed up to provide the first backup with deduplication straight to tape. This technology, which reduces backups significantly (up to 20X), allows you to store more data per tape than competitive models.

The SuperLoader 3 brings you a full suite of advanced features at an affordable price with easy integration, an intuitive user interface, and compatibility with a broad range of backup software packages. And because you can easily expand from 8 to 16 cartridge slots, your investment is protected as your needs grow.

Customers may also choose additional service level uplifts to 5×9×ND and 7×24×4 for maximum availability and faster response times.
