The XenData SX-255 archive server manages a robotic LTO tape library and creates a cost effective digital video archive that is ideal for professional video applications.

The SX-255 runs XenData Archive Series software on a Windows Server 2012 R2 platform and scales to multiple PBs of near-line LTO. It is available in 10 standard configurations that support stand-alone drives and libraries with up to four internal LTO drives.

The SX-255 typically connects to a network as illustrated below. Files can be archived and restored in two ways: as a standard file system where files and folders are written and read just like writing to and reading from disk; or alternatively using a XenData XML API.

The digital archive has a file/folder interface for both archiving and restoring. Furthermore, there is no need to load any special software on client computers. This means it works with most applications . from MAMs to Windows Explorer.

Alternatively, the SX-255 has an XML API that is used by a growing number of MAMs. Create multiple LTO cartridge groups and use for different applications. For example, combine a MAM archive and a simple file-folder archive . all with one XenData system.

A built-in 2.4 TB to 18 TB disk cache delivers high performance in a network and the NAS architecture makes it easy to deploy. Provides two 1 GigE ports. Options add either two 10 GbE ports or two fibre channel ports for SAN connectivity.

The solution is optimized for both CIFS/SMB and FTP network protocols. You can use either protocol . or both simultaneously.

Files are written at disk speed, as the system does not wait for LTO cartridges to be mounted and moved to the end of data. The system restores a queue of files in the shortest possible time. The restore requests are processed in an order that minimizes unnecessary tape movement.

Special requirements

If you do require special shipping options, get in touch with us before you buy and we might be able to sort out alternative arrangements.



Our team take every care to get your new kit to you in pristine condition, but if an item is faulty, you’re less than delighted with it, or you’ve just had a change of plan, you have a few options…

Faulty goods

We’re happy to swap or refund any item that is confirmed as faulty (or ‘Dead on Arrival’) within 14 days of purchase, and will cover the cost of you returning it and a replacement being shipped out. Sometimes, we’ll put you in touch with a manufacturer if we think that’s the fastest way to get you a replacement, and we’ll cover the transport costs then, too. 

After the 14 day DOA period, we’ll try and get you a return or repair in line with the manufacturer’s warranty. The collection and delivery charges will be covered by Jigsaw24 and the cost of the repair will be covered under the warranty, unless an inspection shows signs of damage or misuse. Again, in some instances we may offer to put you in touch with the manufacturer, but only when this is the quickest route to getting you a repair. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Non-faulty goods

You can cancel your contract within 14 days of receiving your kit, and another 14 to return it to us once the order is cancelled. Any requests for refund or credit made outside the 14 day window are at our discretion. We’ll exchange or refund any goods returned to us in full working order, but if an item isn’t faulty, you’ll need to cover the cost of returning it to us. The item(s) returned must be as new and in the original packaging. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Sealed software

Returning any software, even if it’s sealed in its original box, is at our discretion and will depend entirely on the individual manufacturer's policy. For example, some software will automatically allocate you a non-returnable licence, even if it is a boxed product. However, if the product is still a current part of our on-hand stock, and we’re able to confirm from the relevant manufacturer or supplier that they’re happy that licence hasn’t been allocated, we will try to take back any sealed software returned within seven days of purchase.

Electronic Software Delivery returns

ESD (Electronic Software Delivery), in which you’re supplied with a licence and a web link in order to download your purchase. As there’s no physical packaging, the licence has to be treated in the same way as an unsealed box, which means we’re unable to take this back, so please double check you’re buying the right item! Give the sales team a bell on 03332 400 888 if you need any help.

Terms and conditions

We’ll deliver your goods during normal business hours (7:30am-6:00pm) to the address you gave us when you placed your order. Unless we’ve agreed otherwise in writing, the delivery times given by us are a best estimate, and we can’t be held responsible for any loss, delay or damage you may incur as a result of adverse circumstances like bad weather, traffic etc.

Any instances where you might be unable to pay your debts (winding-up, receivership, administration, creditor arrangement, bankruptcy) or you commit a material breach of the contract, we may immediately terminate our contract with you, suspend or cancel further delivery, and/or recover any unpaid items.
