General Description
The Scalar 10K is a tape storage library that can be configured
as a single media or mixed media library. It can be expanded
from a single module library to a multiple module library.
The Scalar 10K automates the storage, retrieval, and control of
LTO-1, LTO-2, LTO-3, LTO-4, Super DLT (SDLT), and 1/2inch tape cartridges. Cartridges are mounted and unmounted
in tape drives using application software from the host
without operator intervention.
For an example of a basic Scalar 10K library, see Figure 2-1.

System Configurations
The Scalar 10K can be configured as a Capacity-On-Demand
(COD) configuration, Customer-Specific configuration, or a
Dual Aisle configuration. For more detailed information
about each of the following configurations, refer to Chapter 3,
System Configurations.
Capacity-On-Demand Configuration
In a COD configuration, you receive a fully-populated library
but do not use all storage slots. This gives you room to expand
in the future. To enable the unused storage slots, contact
Quantum to obtain a software key.
The COD configuration can be configured for 700 to 5,403 tape
slots. For more information on the COD configuration, refer to
Capacity-on-Demand Configurations on page 3-4.
Customer-Specific Configuration
In a Customer-Specific configuration, the library is built to
your specifications. The Scalar 10K can be configured for
approximately 700 to 9,582 tape slots and from 1 to 324 tape
drives. For more information about the Customer-Specific
configuration, refer to Customer-Specific Configurations on
page 3-8.
Dual Aisle Configuration
The Dual Aisle configuration includes redundant controllers,
redundant accessors, redundant control paths, and
redundant shared tower storage, making the Dual Aisle
configuration a highly-available system. If one aisle goes
down, the other aisle remains available.
The Dual Aisle configuration can be configured for up to
13,884 tape slots and up to 324 tape drives. For more
information about the Dual Aisle configuration, refer to Dual
Aisle Configurations on page 3-14.

System Description
6-01337-04 Rev A
Modules
The Scalar 10K consists of five different modules. For an
example of the five different modules, see Figure 2-2 on page
2-8.
The Control Module (CM) and Accessor Module (AM) are the
fundamental building blocks and are required on every
library. See Figure 2-1 on page 2-3.
The Expansion Module (EM), Tower Module (TM), and Drive
Module (DM) are feature modules and are added as
requirements change. The optional EM extends the length of
the aisle. The optional DM and TM are added as storage and
drive requirements change.
The basic Scalar 10K Dual Aisle configuration consists of six
modules: Two CMs, two AMs, and two TMs. These six
modules are required in Dual Aisle configuration. Additional
EMs, TMs, and DMs are added if more storage is needed. The
optional EMs are added in pairs and extend the length of the
aisle. Each pair of EMs requires two inside TMs. The optional
DM and outside TM are added as storage and drive
requirements change.
These modules are designed for ease of installation,
configuration, and field upgradability.
Control Module
The CM is attached to the AM and is required in every Scalar
10K library. It contains an operator panel, AC and DC power
supplies, robot control electronics, and host interfaces.
Note
3592-J1A/TS1120
drives are not
supported in a
CM.
Each drive bay has the space equivalent of 60 LTO,
50 DLT/SDLT, or 50 1/2-inch cartridges. Each drive bay
accommodates 1–6 DLT/SDLT or LTO tape drives. See Figure
2-3 on page 2-10.
In a Dual Aisle configuration, a CM is required in the primary
aisle and secondary aisle. Refer to Dual Aisle Configurations on
page 3-14.
Accessor Module
The AM contains the robotics system and is required in every
Scalar 10K library. The AM has two doors: a service door on
one end and an access door on the other end. If one or more
EMs are attached to the AM, the access door is relocated to the
last EM. The AM requires an attached CM, a minimum of one
set of Insert/Eject (I/E) stations, and storage assemblies.

Modules
2-5
In a Dual Aisle configuration, a safety barrier is included,
which allows for concurrent maintenance by trained service
personnel. Refer to Dual Aisle Configurations on page 3-14.
Expansion Module
The EM extends the length of the aisle and allows the library
to be expanded to accommodate additional drive and
cartridge requirements. In a COD or Customer-Specific
configuration, the Scalar 10K can include a maximum of three
EMs. These modules extend the X-rails (top and bottom)
which allow the accessor to travel the length of the library.
Each EM has four attachment areas called racks that can be
used to attach feature modules or storage assemblies as
shown in Figure 2-2 on page 2-8.
When EMs are used in a Dual Aisle configuration, two inside
TMs attach to each EM, leaving two racks that can be used to
attach feature modules or storage assemblies. Refer to Dual
Aisle Configurations on page 3-14. A maximum Dual Aisle
configuration includes six EMs.
Drive Module
The DM is a feature module that is attached to an AM or EM.
See Figure 2-3 on page 2-10. The DM contains its own AC
power compartment and drive communication electronics. It
can be configured with one to four drive bays. Each drive bay
accommodates 1–6 DLT/SDLT or LTO tape drives or 1–4
3592-J1A/TS1120 tape drives. See Figure 2-3 on page 2-10.
Different types of drives can be intermixed in a DM with the
exception of 3592-J1A/TS1120 drives. 3592-J1A/TS1120
drives require a special DM that is only compatible with 3592J1A/TS1120 drives.
In a Dual Aisle configuration, DMs can be attached to the EMs
of the primary aisle and secondary aisle. Refer to Dual Aisle
Configurations on page 3-14.
Tower Module
The TM is a feature module that is attached to an AM or EM.
The TM contains a storage tower and control electronics and
is configured for only one media type. See Figure 2-3 on page
2-10. TMs can be bulk loaded or unloaded through the TM
service door.
Maximum TM capacity depends on the media type loaded.
See Table 2-1 on page 2-7.

Cartridge Accessor
The cartridge accessor (Figure 2-6 on page 2-13) identifies and
moves cartridges between the storage cells, tape drives, and
I/E stations. The cartridge accessor has:
•
A gripper assembly containing a cartridge gripper and the
barcode scanner. The gripper is designed to pivot
horizontally 180º, get and put cartridges in storage cells,
tape drives, or the I/E station. The gripper fingers are
designed to have full range control for open/close to
handle different media types. The barcode scanner reads
the external barcode labels on the cartridges. It is also
used during the inventory process to locate and
categorize all storage arrays, drive bays, and drives
installed in the library.
•
An X-axis drive for moving the gripper assembly the
length of the rails in the AM and EM(s).
•
A Y-axis drive for moving the gripper assembly vertically
in the CM, AM, and EM(s).
In a Dual Aisle configuration, the primary aisle and secondary
aisle each have their own cartridge accessor.

NOT supported.
Two characters are used to identify the cartridge type. For
LTO, SDLT, and 1/2-inch cartridges, the media identifier is
embedded at the end of the barcode label. All code 39 labels
are supported.
Refer to the Scalar 10K Operator Guide for more information on
label types supported by the Scalar 10K.
Insert/Eject Station
With the I/E station, you can add or remove cartridges to or
from the library without interrupting normal library
operation. The I/E Stations are installed on the AM as shown
in Figure 2-2 on page 2-8.
In the S10K COD configuration, one pair of I/E stations is
included.
In the S10K Customer-Specific configuration, one pair of I/E
stations is included and an additional pair is optional.
In a Dual Aisle configuration, each aisle includes one pair of
I/E stations and an additional pair is optional for each aisle.
Each I/E station has three removable cartridge magazines.
See Figure 2-7 on page 2-15.
Each I/E station also includes an area designated as the
Problem Box where the gripper can deposit a problem
cartridge to be retrieved by the operator. This is required for
continuous operation. The Problem Box is designed to
accommodate any cartridge size that Scalar 10K supports.

Connectivity
The Scalar 10K offers several different connectivity options,
allowing the library to support a wide range of backup
topologies and applications. Flexible library connectivity
delivers active support for loop and switched fabric Fibre
Channel protocols, network attachment, along with SCSI.
SAN Connectivity
The Scalar 10K can be connected to a Fibre Channel Storage
Area Network (SAN) via the Storage Network Controller
(SNC). See Figure 2-8 on page 2-17.
The SNC provides four SCSI bus connections, one ethernet,
and two Fibre Channel connections. The SNC allows native
SCSI devices (for example: library controller and tape drives)
to be seen by any hosts that are attached to the SAN.
The library controller and the tape drives access the SAN via
one of the eight SNCs that can be installed in a Scalar 10K CM
or a DM. LTO drives can also attach to the SAN via the Native
Fibre Channel interface available.
In the Dual Aisle configuration, the Scalar DLC controls the
cartridge accessor and the SNC controls the tape drives.

SCSI Connectivity
The Scalar 10K library can be directly connected to one or two
SCSI buses. See Figure 2-9. Because each SCSI bus is
independent, it can be Single Ended or Differential. Both ends
of each bus must be terminated. A terminator is shipped with
each SCSI adapter card ordered.
The minimum configuration of a Scalar 10K library requires
one SCSI adapter. The SCSI type (Single Ended or
Differential) must be specified at the time of order.
Although the Scalar 10K can be attached to a wide SCSI bus,
it is not a wide SCSI device and its SCSI ID must be in the
range of 0 to 7.

Direct SCSI Attachment
6-01337-04 Rev A
Scalar DLC
The Scalar 10K, through its Scalar Distributed Library Control
(Scalar DLC) interface, provides the industry’s most advanced
combination of management and diagnostics. It creates and
maintains the Scalar 10K configuration, the physical location
of the cartridge accessor, and the inventory of cartridges. The
database is kept in flash memory of the Library control
hardware.
The Scalar DLC attaches to the library SCSI bus. The host
continues to directly attach to the drives via a SCSI or an SNC
Interface.
Refer to the Scalar DLC documentation for a detailed
description of the interfaces supported.
Scalar DLC is available as a single server or as dual servers
(redundant servers) to provide failover.
In COD and Customer-Specific configurations, Scalar DLC is
optional with the single server being the typical Scalar DLC
option. See Single Server.
In a Dual Aisle configuration, Scalar DLC is required with the
redundant servers being the typical Scalar DLC option. Refer
to Redundant Servers on page 2-20.
Single Server
The Scalar DLC Integrated Controller for the Scalar 10K Dual
Aisle library consists of Scalar DLC 2.5 or later software
loaded on a rack mountable server. The server has dual SCSI
drives connected to an embedded RAID controller, a LVD
SCSI card for library connection, and redundant AC power
supplies. The system also ships with a rack mountable flat
panel LCD monitor/keyboard/mouse.
See Figure 2-10 on page 2-20.

Redundant Servers
The redundant Scalar DLC Integrated Controller for the
Scalar 10K Dual Aisle library consists of Scalar DLC 2.5 or
later software loaded on two rack-mountable servers.
Each Server has Dual SCSI drives that are connected to an
embedded RAID controller, 512MB memory, an LVD SCSI
card for library connection, and redundant AC power
supplies. In addition, each server operates with Windows
Advanced Server with Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS). With
MSCS, a cluster is a configuration of two nodes, each of which
is an independent computer system.
2-20
System Description
6-01337-04 Rev A
Together, these independent servers create a "server cluster."
The cluster appears to users as a single server. Should the
primary server fail, the secondary (passive) server
automatically takes over all Scalar DLC functions. The
systems also ships with a rack-mountable flat panel LCD
monitor/keyboard/mouse, a rack-mountable KVM switch, a
rack-mountable external RAID subsystem, and required
system cabling.
See Figure 2-11.

Remote Library Management
The factory installed Remote Management Unit (RMU) in
each system uses a standard web browser for remote library
access.
The supported browsers are:
•
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 and above
•
Netscape Navigator version 4.01 for Unix and 4.7X for
other environments
With an RMU, you are able to do the following:
•
Update RMU firmware
•
Access the library status
•
Make configuration changes
•
Access the library Operator Panel
•
Update the library controller firmware
•
Retrieve library command and error logs
•
Use the Quantum website to access Scalar 10K
documentation
The RMU supports Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP) version 2.0 and acts as an SNMP-server. The RMU
acquires Tape Alert 3.0 compatibility information from the
library over the serial interface port and sends that
information to a SNMP server. The RMU also detects a power
loss and generates a SNMP trap for notification. For
additional information, refer to the Scalar 10K Operator Guide.

System Configuration Overview
The Scalar 10K can be configured as a Capacity-On-Demand
(COD) configuration, Customer-Specific configuration, or a
Dual Aisle configuration.
The COD configuration allows you to expand the number of
used tape cartridge locations in the future. For more
information, refer to Capacity-on-Demand Configurations on
page 3-4.
The Customer-Specific configuration (also known as the
Component configuration) is built to your specifications. The
minimum configuration is one Control Module (CM) and one
Accessor Module (AM). For more information, refer to
Customer-Specific Configurations on page 3-8.
The minimum Dual Aisle configuration includes two CMs, two
AMs, and two inside Tower Modules (TMs). The library can be
expanded if more storage capacity is desired. For more
information, refer to Dual Aisle Configurations on page 3-14.

Capacity-on-Demand Configurations
The COD configuration is a self contained library that can be
configured with one of four media types; however, you
cannot mix media types in any COD system. The COD can be
expanded from a basic library configuration to a basic library
with three EMs. COD systems do not include TMs.
The COD configurations are based on a minimum purchase
of 700 cartridge slots. Additional storage can be enabled with
an authorization string.
For drive types and capacities, see Table 3-1.

With the COD configuration, you purchase a minimum
number of storage slots. As your storage needs increase,
Quantum enables the additional storage slots in blocks of 100
or 500 using a security key. This is done without needing to
buy additional hardware.
When all the storage slots are enabled, you can purchase
additional EMs that contain more storage slots.
When you grow beyond the maximum capacity offered by
COD configuration, you can purchase additional modules.
Three COD configurations are available: a basic
configuration, a basic configuration with two EMs, and a
basic configuration with three EMs.

Dual Aisle Configurations
The Scalar 10K Dual Aisle configuration is a self contained
library that can be configured with one to four media types.
Note
Quantum not
support upgrading a
COD or CustomerSpecific (single aisle)
configuration to a
Dual Aisle
configuration.
In a Dual Aisle configuration, two CMs, two AMs, and two
inside TMs are required in every library. The two AMs are
positioned back to back with shared TMs in the middle to
hold/transfer the data media. Each aisle has its own cartridge
accessor. Maintenance can be performed on one AM while
the other continues to perform.
The basic, required configuration can be expanded to a
configuration with six EMs. the optional EMs are added in
pairs and extend the length of the aisle. Each pair of EMs
requires two inside TMs. An optional DM and outside TM are
added as storage and drive requirements change.
Scalar Distributed Library Control (DLC) is required in this
configuration. There are two types of Scalar DLC
configuration options: single server or dual (redundant)
servers. For more information about Scalar DLC, refer to
Scalar DLC on page 2-19.
The Distributed AML Server (DAS) is also required for a Dual
Aisle configuration. For more information about DAS, refer
to DAS product documentation.

Electrical Specifications
Both the Control Module (CM) and the Drive Module (DM)
require two AC power sources.
Caution
You must install your library with two different power
sources to have redundant power. You will NOT have
redundant power if you use only one AC power source. If a
power failure occurs, your library will fail.
The power cable length for each of these inputs is 14 feet
(4.26 m). Other electrical specifications for these modules are
shown in Table 4-2.

Physical Specifications
For physical specifications for each library module, see Table
4-5.
If the Scalar 10K is installed on a raised floor, the raised floor
should be stabilized to prevent a horizontal shift of the raised
floor structure. The minimum overall floor load rating should
be 201 lb/ft2. Quantum recommends a floor load rating of
250 lb/ft2. These ratings do not include additional loading by
people and equipment traffic. The floor must support point
loads exerted by the leveling pads of up to 94 lb/in2.
The Scalar 10K has four point loads on the DM, CM, and TM
and six point loads on the AM and EM.

Overview
This section gives installation recommendations and
packaging dimensions. It solicits information about the
delivery site. Record all requested general information.
Installation Recommendation
Quantum recommends that you install the Scalar 10K away
from a wall, per the specified clearances. However, if the
system does not have feature modules located across from the
Control Module (CM), you may be able to install the
Scalar 10K against a wall.
Due to the unique challenges that wall-installs present (for
leveling and future expansions), wall-installs are not
recommended unless there are no other alternatives.
Talk with the Customer Engineer for more detailed
installation information.
Pallet Packaging Dimensions
The Scalar 10K pallet packaging dimensions for each
individual module are as follows:
September 2007
•
Length 80 inches (203.2 cm)
•
Width 40 inches (101.6 cm)
•
Height 86 inches (218.44 cm).
