Tape Solutions

Tape based back-up solutions have their own unique set of challenges and required functionality to consider when designing next generation tape libraries based on native Fibre Channel tape drives. Emulex's InSpeed Technology cost-effectively enables tape based storage solution providers to create high-performance tape systems based on a Fibre Channel switched back-end architecture design to improve system Reliablity, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) and performance. The result means tangible business benefits for both end-users and Tape storage solution providers - benefits that only InSpeed can deliver in a switched Tape library infrastructure:

  • Up to 20 ports of switch connectivity for tape drives — greater than market alternatives
  • 2 Gb/s switching performance at a fraction of the cost of market alternatives
  • Increase Tape Library availability and reliability
  • Lower Tape Library system service costs

Implementing the Tape Library switched infrastructure with InSpeed "SBOT" (Switched Bunch of Tapes) Switch configuration:

InSpeed SBOT: InSpeed Embedded Storage Switch box models can be dropped in to create a switched back-end configuration, providing isolation of tape drives, enhanced manageability (including LIP Management) and advanced drive level diagnostics and health monitoring.
