Why the StorStation LIB162?
AIT tape drives have proven incredibly popular with users, with more than 650,000 drives shipped since the first release in 1996. These drives underpin the security of IT systems around the world.
Optimum Rack System
Many offices that are packed with profilerating PCs can be streamlined by introducing the rack-mountable AIT tape library LIB162. The compat AIT format frees up office space with its high-density data storage and offers demand for efficient stacking of servers, storage, and network equipment in 19 inch racks to reduce TCO by maximising system expandibility, use of space and ease of maintenance.
Simple Operation from Web Browser or Front Panel
System set-up and monitoring can be carried out easily from a web browser on a client PC, or from the front panel. The tape cartridge is controlled at high speed with supreme reliability thanks to the R-MIC reader installed by default in the AIT3Ex and AIT-4 tape drives, facilitating recovery in the event of a system crash.
The tape drive can be hot-swapped from the front . The LIB162 comes equipped with a hot swap function, which enables the built-in tape drive to be installed and removed without stopping the system, thus realising high availability as the tape drive can be replaced while the power to the server remains on. The tape drive can be replaced facilitating upgrading for maintenance or system expansion.
