The StorageLoader VXA-2 offers a unique combination of capacity, data reliability, transfer speed and price for this class of automation products. In addition to its compact 1U, rack-mountable form factor, it offers a midrange feature set, including a barcode reader standard, random library operation and optional remote management. The field-replaceable drive allows for easy upgrades to future gen­erations of VXA drives without the cost of buying a whole new box.

The StorageLoader VXA-2 offers dramatically higher data reliability than comparable tape automation due to its ground-breaking VXA Packet Technology.

Over three successive generations, VXA products have been disaster-tested by Tandberg Data and independent labs under the most severe conditions – including violent vibration, immersion in volcanic dust, boiling water and hot coffee, and even freezing cartridges in ice – to assure reliable and complete data restores.

Tandberg Data’s VXAtape™ cartridges are the perfect complement to VXA technology. They provide the necessary features needed for Tandberg VXA tape drives, autoloaders, and libraries. Imation Corporation is the exclusive worldwide distributor of VXA tapes. For more information on media compatibility, click here.
