TL4000 LTO Tape Library
Versatile, expandable, affordable
Automated Data Protection
Regular, disciplined backup is a vital part of a complete disaster recovery strategy. PivotStor’s TL4000 Scalable Library is a powerful tape library that helps organizations automate their backup processes to reduce the need for manual intervention and the risk of human error. PivotStor’s TL4000 uses optical cartridge location technology for precision cartridge handling and inventory, which helps improve the overall reliability of backups.
Tapes can be imported and exported individually using the mail slot or twelve at a time using one of four magazines. The library utilizes barcode-scanning technology to record the location of tape media, so you can be assured that your critical data is properly stored and ready in case disaster strikes.
An on-board, user-friendly LCD interface allows you to easily monitor, control, configure, and service the library. While you are away, the tape library enables you to remotely administer all functions, including system status and logs, diagnostics and drive operations, as well as configuration and inventory management features.
The comparative low cost for tape — combined with its long history of proven reliability — helps ensure its continued use for both backup and archiving. The portability of tape enables it to be taken off-site and stored in a vault. In addition, LTO tape technology supports write-once, read-many (WORM) capability, which enables permanent data storage that cannot be overwritten — a requirement of many compliance regulations.
Big Capacity, Small Space
With its compact form factor, the PivotStor TL4000 packs an impressive amount of information in a small amount of space. Occupying only four units (4U) of rack space, the library can hold up to 48 tapes — ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.
