The StorageTek SL3000 modular library system enables you to scale from 200 to just under 6,000 cartridge slots and from 1 to 56 tape drives in a footprint that grows linearly in a rack environment. The RealTime Growth capability enables you to install physical capacity in advance and tap into it incrementally, with Capacity on Demand. You can grow at your own pace and pay only for the capacity you need. This approach delivers seamless, non-disruptive scalability with no physical parts to install.
