PX720 Product Details
Quantum has continually sought the advice of our extensive user base to help define and plot the course of the next generation of tape libraries.

Based on thorough customer feedback, the PX720 was uniquely engineered to deliver what customers expect plus additional features to place it in a class of its own.
The PX720's fifth generation, time-tested robotics ensure unmatched reliability and uptime. With standard redundant features such as fans and power supplies, IT professionals do not have to choose between high-availability and price. Easily serviced and upgraded from the front or rear of the library, the PX720 was designed to get online and stay online.
The PX720 can integrate into a variety of network environments. With multiple connectivity options to choose from and a wide assortment of supported drive types such as SDLT 320, SDLT 600, DLT-S4, LTO-2, LTO-3 and LTO-4, IT professionals can mix and match interfaces (FC, SCSI and GbE) or drive types (nFC and SCSI) to address network consolidation pain-points.
