A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library. Each time the library door is closed, a bar code reader mounted on the autochanger is designed to scan the cartridge labels enabling a re-inventory of the cartridges in the library frame in as little as 60 seconds.
Through this change, the E05 canister is upgraded to include the components necessary to achieve the media capacity and performance points of the EO6 tape drive through the Miscellaneous Equipment Specification MES process.
For bulk loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. The HA1 contains no storage cells for tape cartridges. With data compression and a 32 K blocksize, the Model J1A is designed to offer up to 2. Model EU6 will assume only any remaining warranty entitlements or the service status of Model E05 that has been upgraded.
Up to four B11s can be installed in a rack, thus reducing the floor space required. The WolfCreek Tape Library provides automated shared storage to a wide variety maintenannce open and proprietary operating environments at a smaller investment. Data capacity for the Model D22 using data cartridges is to TB native and to TB using data compression at 3: Hexagonal-shaped cabinet requires less floor space than sysem automated systems and minimizes robotic time. Up to 15 Model D52 Frames may be added to each base frame.
It appears to host systems as two fully configured E tape subsystems. It does not contain any tape drives or storage cells for customer data cartridges.
Additional libraries can be easily attached and managed as a single automation system. Igm 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.
Data capacity for the Model L22 using data cartridges is TB native and 52 to TB using data compression at 3: The Magstar E11 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. Other Ultrium 3 Tape Drive enhancements to help improve performance and reliability include the addition of a new dual stage 16 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.
StorageTek Libraries The WolfCreek Tape Library is a lower cost-of-entry, robotic library allowing shared data access across mainframe and midrange platforms.
The Model F3A comes with a 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. Up to four E11s can be installed in a rack, thus reducing the floor space required. 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.
Tape Drivers and Tape Libraries – DV Trading A/S
Model Abstract HA1 The HA1 includes a second library manager and accessor, two service pibrary and required hardware and is designed for concurrent maintenance. IBM Tape cartridge Economy. Performance starts at 90 exchanges per infomration and upgrades up to exchanges per hour. 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. Each Model D32 frame supports up to storage slots and up to twelve drives, with incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four drives installed.
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 meters from the associated drive unit frame. 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 S10 consists of tape cartridge storage cells and no tape drives. Gedevasevej 37 DK Farum, Denmark. The WolfCreek Tape Library is a lower cost-of-entry, robotic library allowing shared data access across mainframe and midrange platforms. It can also be attached as a free-standing unit to a C12 Silo Bim Frame.
The S10 expands the tape maintenancd storage capability of the Magstar Tape Library.
The storage capacity and number of drives can be increased by adding either S10 storage units, or D10, D12, and D14 drive units. For bulk-loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be informatioh. For bulk-loading of tape cartridges the library door can be opened.
IBM TS3500 tape library publications
This model has the same footprint as the Model L52, which is a smaller footprint than the Models L32 or D Up to sixteen tape control unit functions can be supported by the L By using this site you agree to this.
The IBM B18 Magstar Virtual Tape Server, a second generation Seascape solution, provides improved performance and jaintenance to lower the total cost of ownership for tape processing. Its offers significant performance improvements over the A50 Controller. Flexible configuration choices start at a single frame with up to two tape drives and up to tape cartridges.
This model has a smaller footprint than the Model L 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 maintenahce, tape cartridges.
This model has the same footprint as the Model L22, which is a smaller footprint than the Model Maitnenance
