Q3 Encryption Appliance Now Supports Multi-devices


The multi-drive firmware for the Q3 range is designed to allow users with specific configurations to use a single Q3 tape backup encryption appliance to handle data from up to four drives. Each drive can be set to either secure or run in transparent pass through mode, (allowing tapes written in clear text to be read by the system). Each drive is controlled independently and full status information for each drive can be displayed on the GUI supplied.


The GUI and unit auto configures dependent on the number of connected drives and allows robotics controls to be passed through on a fifth SCSI address or LUN. The unit remains transparent to the operating system and backup software making for a straightforward integration and operation.
