CVTL/TapeAssure available via web
CVTL & TapeAssure are integrated for single window
view of entire library system.
Simple interface for adding multiple libraries
TapeAssure will provide alerts for the entire library
system
TapeAssure is supported across the HP StoreEver
portfolio managing HP standalone drives, autoloaders,
and tape libraries.
•
iLayer used on Quantum’s tape libraries. Only
manages one library at a time. Cannot display all
Quantum libraries from a single view.
Vision is used for monitoring, reporting & analytics
of Quantum’s Scalar Tape Libraries.
Features:
•
•
•
•
Quantum Vision is available via web and mobile devices
iLayer and Vision function independently.

Quantum: Vision Analytics Software
Quantum Vision software
Benefits
• Runs on Linux or Windows
• Supports Scalar tape libraries and DXi disk-based
backup devices
• Vision has a defined alert mechanism
• Rules are defined per library
• Generates & delivers scheduled reports
• Mobile Access / LDAP authentication supported
Deficiencies:
•
Basic functionality is licensed
•
Results derived from standard drive notifications such
as Tape Alerts rather than in depth analysis of low level
drive performance metrics
•
Customized graphs on only a few parameters
•
System Login to users based on group access privilege

HP StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced
Beats the competition
In Depth Analysis
• The HP in depth analysis is built from knowledge generated during the design, development, and testing of HP tape
drives. HP uses internal parameters that are only accessible to the HP drive development team for better analytics.
•
This is far superior to any analysis that can be done using only externally visible parameters .
Event based data gathering
• TapeAssure Advanced is better at providing flexibility for gathering system events
• Quantum’s Vision predefined frequency is inversely proportional to the number of devices being monitored & users
• TapeAssure Advanced provides an exhaustive list of information on the tape drive’s health, performance and utilization
• Quantum Vision provides very limited information: drive location, serial number & status only.
Health & Life Graphs
• TapeAssure Advanced provides built in monitoring of tape library, drive and media wear for estimating remaining life (think gas gauge)
• TapeAssure Advanced provides health graphs from consolidated data on tape library/tape drive/media parameters
• Quantum Vision doesn’t provide this level of data
Performance Advisor Graphs
• TapeAssure provides compound analysis.
• TAA is recording data from every operation in a local database then comparing the historical data to the most recent
operation to differentiate between transient conditions. By detecting issues that are building over time, TAA can provide
the administrator what is needed to address issues not available in any other single form of measurement.
• TapeAssure Advanced provides a consolidated view of performance and utilization and plots data indicating both high
and low performance and utilization information.
• Quantum Vision doesn’t provide this level of data
