First and Only Disk-Based Alternative to Tape


COPAN Systems, provider of the first and only disk alternative to tape, today announced the general availability of their first product, the Revolution 200T.

Based on groundbreaking MAID architecture, COPAN Systems' Revolution 200T delivers the performance, availability and data protection of disk at the price and scale of tape. Companies in the financial services, government, media and service provider industries are using COPAN Systems' product as the foundation for backup/recovery, archive and scientific research applications.

"Fortune 500 companies who are looking for a disk-based alternative to tape can now justify storing all their data on disk and gain the power of disk access speeds and protection while reducing and sometimes eliminating cumbersome tape," said COPAN Systems President and Chief Executive Officer Dave Davenport. "The advanced MAID architecture of the Revolution 200T means that companies improve their business responsiveness, improve the success rate of their backup/recovery and have a more streamlined IT operation."

"Awareness continues to build around the benefits of the MAID architecture and how it addresses the unique characteristics of long term storage. The result of COPAN's implementation is the first virtual tape library that can offer the benefits of disk at the price of tape," said W. Curtis Preston, VP of Service Development, GlassHouse Technologies. "Their breakthrough architecture is demonstrated by the real life implementation of a VTL that scales to 224TB in a single footprint, with speeds up to 720/MBs and a price that is 4 times less than other VTLs, essentially the same cost of tape libraries. This price point allows you to send all on-site backups to disk -- using tape only for off-site, disaster recovery purposes."

Enterprise IT organizations have chosen the Revolution 200T to increase the reliability and efficiency of their backup/recovery, archive and scientific research applications. Application specific benefits include:

  • Backup/Recovery Benefits:
    • Reduced backup and recovery windows
    • Faster access to backed-up data
    • Reduced backup and recovery failures
    • Reduced or elimination of staging costs (hardware and personnel)
    • Reduced tape requirement
  • Archive Benefits:
    • Faster access to all data
    • A superior long term data repository
    • Elimination of data movement between disk staging and tape
    • Reduced personnel and infrastructure costs associated with tape
  • Scientific Research Benefits:
    • Reduced time to access the data, speeding data analysis
    • A superior long term data repository
    • Reduced costs associated with tape-based research architectures

Pricing and Features
Revolution 200T has been tested to support all operating platforms and all enterprise class backup/recovery applications. Today's announcement general availability includes support for BakBone NetVault(TM) and VERITAS NetBackup(TM) and will be followed shortly with the release to general availability for Commvault Galaxy(TM), Legato NetWorker(TM), NetAppliance(TM) and Tivoli TSM(TM) among others. The Revolution 200T list price is $3.50 per gigabyte, uncompressed. Optional features include compression and tape migration.
