For bulk-loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. The ACF can be quickly loaded with a new magazine. Description Silo Compatible Frame. The S10 consists of tape cartridge storage cells and no tape drives. IBM Tape cartridge Economy. Attaches to or Virtual configurations have also been enhanced to provide a maximum of 64 virtual devices and up tological volumes per Each frame can have up to 12 logical libraries or 12 control paths one per tape drive.


Its versatility makes it well suited for smaller and mid-sized companies, smaller sites of large companies, remote sites, dedicated applications and other environments initially requiring smaller increments of automated storage granularity.

In conjunction with a service bay feature on the Model D22 or D52, the Model HA1 provides for the installation and operation of a second library accessor in a Tape Library to help improve availability and performance.

The WolfCreek Tape Library provides automated shared storage to a wide variety of open and proprietary operating environments at a smaller investment. 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.

Hexagonal-shaped cabinet requires less floor space than other automated systems and minimizes robotic time.

The Magstar B18 Virtual Tape Fape is packaged as a stand alone unit that can be a maximum of 14 meters from the associated drive unit frame.


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. Up to four E11s can be installed in a rack, thus reducing the floor space required. A B18 Virtual Tape Server can be externally attached to the The exact ratio depends on which cartridge is used with the tape drive.

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. Each Model D42 frame can have up to 6 logical libraries and 6 control.

Data capacity for the Model D22 using data cartridges is syorage TB native and to TB using data compression at 3: 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.
