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. Its affordable, modular design allows the to grow as your business grows. Flexible configuration choices start at a single frame with up to two tape drives and up to tape cartridges.
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 6, tape cartridges.
The High Availability model provides a second tape cartridge accessor and library manager for higher library availability and performance. The IBM VTS uniquely combines the speed of disk, the advantages of virtual tape drives, the capacity and reliability of IBM tape technology, and the automation of the to create an industry-leading self-contained hierarchical storage management subsystem.
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. It appears to host systems as two fully configured E tape subsystems.
The B16 contains tape cartridge storage cells. The IBM B18 Magstar Virtual Tape Server, a second generation Seascape solution, provides improved performance and capacity to lower the total cost of ownership for tape processing. 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. Virtual configurations have also been enhanced to provide a maximum of 64 virtual devices and up tological volumes per Each virtual volume can now have a maximum capacity of 2.
The base configuration of no tape drive unit and tape cartridge storage cells can be expanded with up to maintenancw total o f six tape drive units and tape storage cells. The base configuration of no tape drive unit stlrage tape cartridge storage cells can be expanded with up to a total of four tape drive units and tape storage cells.
The HA1 includes a second library manager and accessor, two service bays and required hardware and is designed for concurrent maintenance. The HA1 operates in standby mode to provide a redundant library manager and accessor or improved availability.
With the Dual Active Accessor DAA feature active on the L10, L12or L14, both accessors can operate simultaneously to increase mount performance of the l ibrary. With two library managers and dual accessors, and each containing two disk drives for duplication of the library databases, maintenance can now be performed in most situations on the failing library control unit component while the is still available for customer production. The HA1 contains no storage cells for tape cartridges.
It is shstem to grow as your storage and usage needs grow. The storage capacity and number of drives can be increased by adding either S10 storage units, or D10, D12, and D14 drive units.
A B16 Virtual Tape Server with an attached D12 drive unit can also informatiin added for a total of 15 additional frames and up to tape cartridges. Up to sixteen tape control unit functions can be supported by the L The total quantity of supported tape drives is dependent on the combination of installed B16s and tape subsystems. The L10 can be upgraded to a L12 or L A B18 Mainttenance Tape Server can be externally attached to the A B16 Tape Server with an livrary D12 drive unit can also be added for a total of 15 additional frames and up to tape cartridges.
The S10 expands the tape cartridge storage capability of the Magstar Tape Library.

The S10 consists of tape cartridge storage cells and no tape drives. They are designed for environments that require a high-performance tape solutions.
With data compression and a 32 K blocksize, the Model J1A is designed to offer up to 2. The TS E05 Tape Drive can help address the needs of tape customers across a broad range of computing environments. Through this change, the E05 amintenance 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.
Model upgrades beyond the Maintwnance EU6 will not be available. Model EU6 will assume only any remaining warranty entitlements or the service status of Model E05 that has been upgraded.
The exact ratio depends on which cartridge is used with the tape drive. Up to 15 Model D22 Frames may be added to each base frame. This model has the same footprint as the Model L22, which is a smaller footprint than the Models L32 or D Data capacity for the Model D22 using data cartridges is to TB native and to TB using data compression at 3: 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.
Each frame can have up to 12 logical libraries or 12 control paths one per tape drive. Up to five D32 expansion frames may be added to each base frame. 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 D32 frame can have up to 12 logical libraries and 12 control paths.
Up to five D42 expansion frames may be added to each base frame. 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.
Each Model D42 frame can have up to 6 logical libraries and 6 control. Up to 15 Model D52 Frames may be added to each base frame. This model has the same footprint as the Model L52, which is a smaller footprint than the Models L32 or D This model has the same footprint as the Model L52, which is a smaller footprint than the Model L Data capacity for the Model L22 using data cartridges is TB native and 52 to TB using data compression at 3: For bulk-loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened.
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. A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library. The library capacity and number of drives can be expanded to meet changing needs.
