StorageTek SL500 Modular Library System
RELIABLE, SCALABLE, SIMPLE RACK-MOUNTED TAPE AUTOMATION
- Improve reliability with superior robotics and easy serviceability.
- Scale without decreasing reliability or performance to meet changing requirements in high-availability environments.
- Simplify and accelerate consolidation by creating as many as eight native partitions.
- Create a tiered storage solution easily by using the StorageTek SL500 with Sun Storage Archive Manager and Sun Storage 6000 arrays.
The StorageTek SL500 modular library system scales from 30 to 575 LTO slots with a maximum capacity of more than 862 terabytes of uncompressed data—more than 40 percent more capacity than that of other libraries in this class. The library also enables you to use as many as 18 tape drives with a native throughput rate of more than 7 terabytes per hour.
