Universal Backup Device (UBD) write throughput increases to 409MB/sec

LaserVault has increased Fibre Channel write throughput in our Universal Backup Device to an amazing 409MB/second.
UBD vs Tape
Max Speed(MB/s) 20 40 80 120 140 409
Compression 2:1 2:1 2:1 2:1 2:1 Up to 6:1
Encryption No No No Yes Yes Yes (AES-256)

With this speed increase and the solution’s ability to interface with BRMS, Robot/SAVE, TATools or any in-house backup program, you can unplug your tape drive, plug in UBD and keep backing up the AS/400, iSeries and IBM i as usual.  The only difference is that you no longer have to handle tape cartridges.

To make it even easier, we’ve automated the tape image naming process on the iSeries and included an easy to use web interface to create, name, load and unload tape images.

UBD can be used as a gateway device to store backups on your SAN, NAS or any deduplication appliance that support CIFS, NFS or iSCSI connections, such as ExaGrid®, NetApp®, Quantum®, EMC Avamar®, CommVault® etc.
