Virtual configurations have also been enhanced to provide a maximum of 64 virtual devices and up tological volumes per lkbrary StorageTek Libraries The WolfCreek Tape Library is a lower cost-of-entry, robotic maintenancd allowing shared data access across mainframe and midrange platforms.

Optional drive, storage, and Virtual Tape Server units may be added as needed, to create an automated tape library with up to 66 physical tape drives, virtual tape drives, and up to 6, tape cartridges.

Up to sixteen tape control unit functions can be supported by the L The L10 can be upgraded to a L12 or L Each Model D42 frame supports up to DLTtape IV storage slots and up to twelve DLT drives, with incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four of drives installed.

The Magstar B18 Virtual Tape Server is packaged as a stand alone unit that can be a maximum of 14 libray from the associated drive unit frame. Data capacity for the Model L22 using data cartridges is TB native and 52 to TB using data compression at 3: Use of Cookies This site uses cookies for statistics and settings.


It delivers almost unlimited automated data storage potential, regardless of environment.

This model has a smaller footprint than the Model L With the Dual Active Accessor DAA feature active on the L10, L12or L14, both accessors can operate simultaneously to increase mount performance of the l ibrary. For bulk-loading of tape cartridges the library door can be opened. A B18 Virtual Tape Server can be externally attached to the The Magstar E11 tape drive is the rack-mountable model that includes a cartridge Automatic Cartridge Facility ACF that can be used in a indormation access mode as a mini-library.

E06 native cartridge capacity 3: For bulk-loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. Attaches to external control sttorage required. The exact ratio depends on which cartridge is used with the tape drive.

Each time the library door is closed, a bar code reader mounted on the autochanger scans the cartridge labels enabling a re-inventory of the cartridges in the library frame in less than 60 seconds. Up to four E11s can be installed in a rack, thus reducing the floor space required. Each Model D23 supports up to cartridge slots and up to 12 Tape Drives, with an incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four tape drives installed.

Data capacity for the Model D22 using data cartridges is to TB native and to TB using data compression at 3: IBM Tape cartridge Extended. It is designed to grow as your storage and usage needs grow. In conjunction with a service bay feature on the Model D22 or D52, the Model HA1 provides for the installation and operation of a second library accessor in a Tape Library to help improve availability and performance.

Up to 15 Model D52 Frames may be added to each base frame. All this plus remote console support, SNMP management capabilities, multi-host attachment, and modular design make the flexible, easy to use, and the best choice in automated tape library solutions.


Each frame can have up to 12 logical libraries or 12 control paths one per tape drive. The B16 contains tape cartridge storage cells.

The TS has a 4-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. Each Model D32 frame supports up to storage slots and infprmation to twelve drives, with incremental kibrary of storage slots for each set of four drives installed. Its versatility makes it well suited for smaller and mid-sized companies, smaller sites storgae large companies, remote sites, dedicated applications and other environments initially requiring smaller increments of automated storage granularity.

This model has the same footprint as the Model L52, which is a smaller footprint than the Model L It can also be attached as a free-standing unit to a C12 Silo Compatible Frame. The WolfCreek Tape Library is a lower cost-of-entry, robotic library allowing shared data access across mainframe and midrange platforms.

Attaches to A60 and tape drives maintenancr Model C12 or C Up to 12 logical libraries one per tape drive can be configured for each frame. Description Silo Compatible Frame. The HA1 operates in standby mode to provide a redundant library manager and accessor or improved availability.

Hexagonal-shaped cabinet requires less floor space than other automated systems and minimizes robotic time. The HA1 includes a second library manager and accessor, two service bays and required hardware and is designed for concurrent maintenance. Flexible configuration choices start at a single frame with up to two tape drives and up ta;e tape cartridges.
