DLTtape Technology - A Quantum Leap in Midrange Tape Automation
Todays IT professionals face an ever-increasing multitude of problems and issues, including logarithmic growth of data storage needs, facility and space constraints, expandability of storage systems, ability to manage systems offsite, ease of use, initial investment cost, investment protection, reliability, and serviceability. Recent economic conditions exacerbated these issues, driving requirements for extreme efficiency and laser-focused effectiveness.
New paradigms in midrange tape automation will take advantage of the opportunity to vastly improve data protection by exploiting consolidated, shared, networked storage technologies. These technologies enable and promote the following benefits:
- Space consolidation through low-form-factor, rackmount configurations
- Remote device management
- Modular, maintainable designs
- Flexible, easily-upgraded systems
- Networked configurations
Offering these benefits in a modern platform for midrange data protection will result in cost savings, cost avoidance, and
increased revenue potential. The next step for these platforms is advancing features found in autoloader units, which is
defined as an automated, multi-cartridge (independently addressed), single tape drive system.
