The StorServer S Series 10000 appliance provides an easy-to-roll-out, all-in-one backup package for small sites. The S10000 is ideal for sites with limited IT staff and those that are looking for a no-hassle backup scheme, although it locks sites into AIT tape technology.

Cost Analysis

The S10000 is priced starting at $19,900, and the price goes up as the library scales to higher capacity with AIT-2 and AIT-3 tapes. Additional costs include tapes, accessories and hardware upgrades such as Gigabit NICs.

(+) Provides a complete backup package that is easy to set up and manage; offers a wide range of client and application supposrt; 24-terabyte storage potential.

(-) Lacks hardware redundancy and failover capabilities; supports only AIT tapes.
