QUALSTAR AIT TAPE
LIBRARY SYSTEM
AUTOMATED TAPE LIBRARIES
FEATURING AIT TECHNOLOGY
The Qualstar TLS-4000 Series is the
most comprehensive tape library family
available for enterprise class backup
and near-online data storage. Incorporating AITTM technology tape drives,
they are true automated tape libraries
that allow users to store, archive
and retrieve data without operator
intervention, around the clock.
SEAMLESS, TRANSPARENT INTEGRATION
Concurrent data transfer combining up
to 12 drives provides the high throughput necessary to backup large networks.
Simultaneous reading and writing
means procedures can be scheduled
anytime, independent of any operator
and with no interference with other
operations. SANSmart technology and
multiple SCSI busses increase throughput to meet narrowing backup windows.
The TLS-4000 family is supported by
all leading data protection, archive
and storage management applications
for easy integration and very low cost
per terabyte.
RELIABLE, INTELLIGENT ROBOTICS
THE RIGHT SYSTEM FOR YOU NOW...
POWERFUL USER INTERFACE
Offering unbeatable reliability, performance and value, our TLS-4000 AIT
Tape Library family includes 10 models
spanning capacities from 1.2 terabytes
to over 312 terabytes. Individual models
house two, four, six, or up to twelve
drives, delivering data transfer rates
exceeding 2 terabytes per hour.
An intuitive menu-driven control system
provides easy-to-use installation, configuration, and operational information via
the large LCD panel. Critical operating
messages are displayed, and an audible
alarm signals conditions requiring
immediate action.
...AND THE EXPANDABLE
SYSTEM FOR YOUR FUTURE
Field upgrade kits are available for
several models that double the number
of tapes, and additional drives are readily
installed to increase throughput. Tape
drives can be user-installed in less than
one minute. Capacity expansion kits take
less than an hour to install.
Our unique robotic mechanism is
simply better, by design. Leadscrewbased robotics using brushless
motors and closed-loop servo control
systems provide precise positioning
and flawless media handling for
years of dependable operation. All
electrical and mechanical adjustments
have been completely eliminated by
sophisticated, adaptive “smart” logic
design. Filtered positive air pressure
within each unit eliminates airborne
contamination for extended tape
and head life.
Q-Link, our web browser-based
remote library manager, is optional on
all models. Q-Link allows any TLS-4000
Series Tape Library to be configured,
monitored and managed from anywhere
in the world. Using Q-Link, companies
can deploy enterprise-class data
protection without increasing staff or
degrading data security. Even firmware
updates can be installed remotely.
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 moved when the door
is opened. If they haven’t, operation
is resumed without causing a time
consuming reinventory.
SANSMART AND LOGICAL LIBRARY
The SANSmart Fibre Channel Options
support the latest SAN and serverlessbackup applications.
Logical Library is built into all TLS-4000
SCSI models and allows up to four
SCSI-connected servers to share a
library, even if each server is running
a separate application. Systems that
you couldn’t afford to upgrade can
now be protected automatically.
