Exabyte 215A 8MM AIT-2 Tape Library  
Exabyte 215A 8MM AIT-2 Tape Library



  • 750 GB native capacity
  • 43.2 GB/hour native transfer rate
  • AIT-2 Technology

Designed for entry-level applications experiencing increasing data storage needs, the Exabyte 215A tape library brings affordable, high-performance, dependable AIT automation technology to backup. The Exabyte 215A accommodates up to two AIT-2 tape drives and 15 data cartridges and offers the ability to conduct unattended operations for over 15 hours.

To protect the user's investment, the library allows users to start with a single drive and easily integrate an additional drive as their performance needs increase. The easy-to-use interface guides users through library and drive status, diagnostics and help functions.

Occupying just five rack units, the Exabyte 215A takes up very little space and maximizes the use of valuable data center space. Two units are mounted side by side in the rack. The compact size allows the library to fit on the desktop or on top of a server. Tape drives are designed to be field replaceable, allowing for ease of service and the ability to upgrade to future- generation tape drives, further protecting the user's investment.

Automatic backup with Exabyte AIT libraries reduces the risk of lost data and error-prone human intervention, allowing system administrators to focus on more mission-critical tasks. The Exabyte 215A provides the security of worry-free backup at an affordable cost.
