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. The total quantity of supported tape drives is dependent on the combination of installed B16s and tape subsystems.

Up to 15 Model D52 Frames may be added to each base frame. Each frame can have up pibrary 12 logical libraries or 12 control paths one per tape drive. The base configuration of no tape drive unit and tape cartridge storage cells can be expanded with up to a total o f six tape drive units and tape storage cells.

The Magstar B18 Virtual Tape Server is packaged as a stand alone unit that can be a maximum of 14 meters from the associated drive unit 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. The subsystem includes tape drives and controllers that can be configured in a broad range of solutions that includes stand-alone frames or racks, or in automated library solutions to meet a diverse set of customer requirements.


This model has the same footprint as the Model L52, which is a smaller footprint than the Model L StorageTek Libraries The WolfCreek Tape Library is a lower cost-of-entry, robotic library allowing shared data access across mainframe and midrange platforms.

Standard cartridge capacity upgrades up to 1, cartridges with minimal disruption to ongoing production operations. A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library.

IBM Tape cartridge Standard. The Model F3A comes with a 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. 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.

Attaches to external control unit required. A B16 Virtual Tape Server with an attached D12 drive unit can also be added for a total of 15 additional frames and up to tape cartridges. By using this site you agree to this.

Model EU6 will assume only any remaining warranty entitlements or the service status of Model E05 that has been upgraded. Flexible configuration choices start at a single frame with up to two tape drives and up to tape cartridges. The WolfCreek Tape Library provides automated shared storage to a wide variety of open and proprietary operating environments at a smaller investment.

The Magstar B11 tape drive is the rack-mountable model that includes a cartridge Automatic Cartridge Facility ACF that can be used in a random access mode as a mini-library. Attaches to Model A14 frame or. Description Tape drive with ACF. For bulk-loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. Hexagonal-shaped cabinet requires less floor space than other automated systems and minimizes robotic time.


Each Model D32 frame can have up to 12 logical libraries and 12 control paths. A B18 Virtual Tape Server can be externally attached to the E06 native cartridge capacity 3: Additional libraries can be easily attached and managed as a single automation system.

Attaches to or The S10 expands the tape cartridge storage capability of the Magstar Tape Library. Each Model D32 frame supports up kaintenance storage slots and up to twelve drives, with incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four drives installed.

Up to five D32 expansion frames may be added to each base frame. Its performance is roughly double what was achieved in the predecessor A00 Controller. The IBM VTS uniquely combines the speed of disk, the advantages of virtual tape drives, the capacity sforage reliability of IBM tape technology, and the automation of the to create an industry-leading self-contained hierarchical storage management subsystem.

Its offers significant performance improvements over the A50 Controller. Other Ultrium 3 Tape Drive enhancements to help improve performance and reliability include the addition of maiintenance new dual stage maintneance head actuator designed to provide precision head alignment, new independent tape loader and threader motors with positive pin retention, graceful dynamic breaking designed to maintain tension to help prevent stretching or breaking the tape and loose tape wraps, a larger MB internal buffer, and highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology.
