Qualstar LTO Ultrium Rackmount Tape Library Systems

The RLS Series delivers Qualstars Simply Reliable Automated Tape Library technology to LTO users requiring Compact, 5U-high rackmountable solutions. Offering superior performance and value, the RLS Series LTO Tape Library family includes three models yielding capacities up to 35.2 terabytes (native). Using typical data compressionratios, capacity can exceed 70 terabytes. Individual models house up to two tape drives. Data transfer rates can exceed 1.7 terabytes per hour.


CAPACITY ON DEMAND (COD)
The RLS-8204 model delivers a persuasive combination of low entry cost and easy capacity upgrades. This model supports one or two LTO full-height tape drives, giving users technology choices in compact 5U-high modules. Starting with twelve data tape slots, up to four, 8-slot expansion kits can be installed in just a few minutes. A simple software key and a pair of magazines is all it takes for users to easily add more capacity.

HIGH AVAILABILITY PLUS Q-LINK
RLS high availability options include hot-swappable redundant power supplies, true hot-swappable tape drives, and Q-Link, the web browserbased remote library manager. Q-Link allows any RLS Series Tape Library to be configured, monitored, diagnosed and managed from anywhere in the world. Using Q-Link, companies can deploy enterprise-class data protection without increasing staffs or degrading data security. Even firmware updates can be implemented remotely.

DFA DRIVES SUPPORTED
RLS D models house LTO 3 or LTO 4 Direct Fibre Attach tape drives. These drives use 4Gb Fibre Channel interfaces to connect directly to ports on switches or to servers where SCSI cable length restrictions inhibit the desired installation. The RLS library control interface can be connected with SCSI, or with Fibre Channel using the FCO option.

INTERFACE CHOICES
The IPSmart iSCSI option offers dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for greater data throughput. Adding a library to an IP SAN is quick and easy.

RELIABLE, INTELLIGENT ROBOTICS
The RLS Series unique robotic mechanism is Simply Reliable by design. Leadscrew based robotics using brushless DC motors and closed-loop servo control systems provide precise positioning and flawless media handling for years of dependable operation. All FRUs, options and tape drives are autodiscovering, and all electrical and mechanical adjustments have been completely eliminated by sophisticated, adaptive smart logic design. Built-in reliability is only part of the RLS Series story. Each tape drive is on a self-connecting mount that eliminates handling cables. Simply slide the drives in or out.

EASY OPERATION
An intuitive menu-driven control system provides easy-to-use installation, configuration and operational information via the onboard LCD panel. Critical operating functions are displayed and an audible alarm signals conditions requiring immediate action. All of the information, functions and controls built into the front panel display are replicated in Q-Link. Tapes are housed in convenient magazines that simply snap in and out of the library. Removing and organizing tapes for offsite storage is easy.

ADVANCED CARTRIDGE MANAGEMENT AND SECURITY
Barcode scanning enhances throughput and controls the media inventory. VIOP, a unique variable I/O port design, allows users to determine how many slots to commit to importing and exporting tapes. Our exclusive Inventory Sentry senses whether the tapes or magazines have actually been removed when the door is opened. If they havent, operation is resumed without causing a time consuming re-inventory.

LOGICAL LIBRARY
Logical Library is built into every RLS Series SCSI library. It allows up to four SCSI-connected servers to share a single library, even if each server is running a separate application. Systems that you couldnt afford to upgrade can now be protected automatically.
