The Tandberg DLT VS Autoloader is a significant advancement in automation innovation; a reassuring extension of the industry-standard DLT technology and a revolutionary development in tape automation.

Hands-free Reliable Unattended Backup

Users small and large rely on automation because it reduces IT overhead, offers increases in capacity over standalone tape drives, provides random access to several cartridges, and eliminates human intervention, the number one cause of data loss. The Tandberg DLT VS Autoloader provides all of these benefits at a price that is comparable to some stand-alone tape drives! This is an unparalleled value for reliable industry-standard DLT automation.

Rack Optimized for Slim Spaces

Data center space in computer environments is at a premium and has been filling up at an unprecedented rate, resulting in the IT industry moving toward efficient footprints for servers and storage. The Tandberg DLT VS Autoloader is the next step toward greater density in computer environments. The combination of the high capacity provided by the industry's only half-height DLT tape drive and the new 2U autoloader provides best-of-breed data density when implemented in rack-optimized installations.

SLR Libraries:back to top:

Massive capacity, unmatched scalability and total reliability.

The decision to automate your data is critical. High capacity backup, Near-On-line storage, Archival Storage, HSM or data collection, require hardware with high capacity, performance, reliability and scalability. SLR libraries meet these requirements now and in the future.

Based on the Tandberg SLR100 tape drive, with 100 GByte* storage capacity, SLR100 Libraries offer up to 4TB* of storage capacity and up 144GB* per hour transfer rates.

Protecting Future Data Requirements

Regardless of which configuration you choose, you have the ability to scale to future drives with higher capacities and transfer rates. Tandberg SLR Libraries have an Ultra 2 SCSI LVD interface which offer high performance, which is a critical requirement to access to Near-Online-data (transfer rates with up 144GByte/hr* are achievable).

Ultimate Reliability and Security

All components are designed with reliability in mind. The SLR library is based on the SLRtape drive which is a proven technology with over 3 million units installed in the market. The rock solid robotics include a solenoid gripper and stepper motor for precise handling of cartridge, as well as acoustic alarms for temperature, voltage, air filter, inventory and manual interrupt. The exchangeable 10 cartridge magazines also provide for easy transport of data cartridges.

SLR Autoloaders:back to top:

The Tandberg SLR Autoloader brings you the productivity and security of an automated tape solution, as well as the proven reliability and scalability of SLR technology, at an extremely affordable price. Based on the SLR tape drive and a removable eight-cartridge magazine, the SLR autoloader offers capacities up to 800GByte* and transfer rates up to 36GByte/hr*. The easy to use LCD display allows installation to be completed in three simple steps. Information about the tape drive, robotics, media and cleaning are also available via TapeAlert.

Most autoloaders offer a barcode reader as an option. However, the barcode reader is a standard feature in the SLR autoloader providing information of stored data and automated media tracking, so that access to data is fast and simple. A security code allows you to lock the autoloader to prevent unauthorized access to the drive, magazine and car-tridges.

The SLR Autoloader is designed with scalability and backward compatibility in mind. Users can begin with the SLR60 autoloader offering 480GB* of capacity and migrate to the SLR100 autoloader with 800GB* of capacity by simply exchanging the tape drive. The SLR autoloader is also fully backward compatible so all of the previously stored data can be retrieved.

USER-FRIENDLY INTERFACE MAKES OPERATION EASY

From the intuitive LCD display to the cartridge magazine that secures all eight cartridges, the Tandberg SLR Autoloader accommodates users by offering an easy-to-use interface. For instance, setup of the Tandberg SLR Autoloader is accomplished in three easy steps in the control panel menu. In addition, the Tandberg SLR Autoloader display panel provides status information on the activity of the drive and loader mechanisms. Finally, a security code allows you to lock the loader and regulate access to the drive, cartridges and magazine.

MAJOR OPERATING SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE CONNECTIVITY

Operating system and platform software support are assured by certified compatibility with all leading software packages for Sun Solaris, Novell NetWare, Windows NT, IBM AIX, SCO UNIX, HP-UX, Mac OS, and more. TapeAlert™, in combination with the intelligence built into the automated Tandberg SLR Autoloader, keeps host software fully aware of the presence of all media and the status of the SLR drive and robotics.
