TLS-8000 Tape Library System for LTO Ultrium Drives
Qualstar's TLS-8000 Series offers superior performance
and value for LTO Ultrium tape users. With capacities from 4.4
TB to over 422 TB, the TLS-8000 Series economically and reliably
automates tape-based applications, whether backing up a single
server or as an integral part of an enterprise-wide storage
The TLS-8000 family comprises
six models, providing a broad range of cost-effective solutions.
Housing one to eight LTO Ultrium technology tape drives and up
to 264 tapes. TLS-8000 multi-drive library models readily
support concurrent reading and writing at data transfer rates
exceeding 6.9 Terabytes per hour to meet the throughput needs of
today's rapidly-growing networks.
Direct Fiber Attach (DFA) LTO
drives connect each drive to maximize SAN performance.
All TLS-Series libraries
include Q-Link, Qualstar's web browser accessed remote library
manager that enables administrators to configure, upgrade, and
monitor any TLS-Series tape library via a company intranet or
over the internet from anywhere in the world. Q-Link extends the
library's comprehensive front panel menu system and adds
additional functionality such as automatic e-mail notification
based on rules set by the administrator, and firmware updates
can be implemented remotely.
Developed for the RLS-Series
libraries, VIOP is now incorporated in every TLS model.
An exclusive Qualstar design feature, VIOP, Variable I/O Port,
allows users to match the number of I/O slots to their
operational requirements. Applications are not constrained by
limits imposed by libraries with a fixed number of I/O slots.
Users can assign the number of slots to best match their
requirements. VIOP compliments the hardware I/O Ports which
continue to be included or available in all models.
Logical Library is built into
every TLS-Series SCSI library. It allows up to four servers to
share a single library via a SCSI interface, even if each server
is running a separate application. Systems that you couldn't
afford to upgrade can now be protected automatically. Support
for multiple SCSI busses is also built-in to maximize throughput
in direct-attach architectures.
The TLS-8000 Series also offers
barcode scanning and an I/O Port for importing and exporting
individual tapes under application control.
Qualstar is known worldwide for
quality and reliability. All electrical and mechanical
adjustments have been eliminated for easy installation and
enhanced reliability. Tape drive reliability is improved by
providing individual fans for each Ultrium drive to insure
proper cooling. Filtered, positive air pressure is maintained
throughout the library to reduce contamination.
Providing built-in capacity and
performance growth is a hallmark of all Qualstar TLS-Series
automation families. All drive bays are pre-wired: users can
easily install additional tape drives for increased throughput.
Field upgrade kits are also available to double the tape
capacity of some models.
Founded in 1984, Qualstar has
been designing and manufacturing tape automation products since
1994. Offering 30 models for AIT, SDLT and LTO Ultrium formats,
our TLS-Series families consistently set industry standards for
quality, performance and value.
