STORAGETEK’S
OFFERINGS
In an information-driven world, data is your business.
It’s that simple. Without it, your organization simply can’t
function. And to that end, data needs to be available and
protected as your business changes and grows and
continuously prepares itself for highly available operation.
Enter the StorageTek® L180 automated tape library. It provides enterprise-class reliability and
performance for midsize, distributed implementations in UNIX and Windows environments. Based upon
our industry-proven, tape automation technologies, the L180 tape library features high-speed native two
KEY BUSINESS BENEFITS
> Scalability and flexibility
Talk about an investment that grows in value – the flexible
L180 tape library lets you store up to 34.8 TB. As your
needs grow, you can add drives. It couldn’t be easier!
> SAN-readiness
2 Gb Fibre Channel connectivity lets you deploy a scalable
SAN and benefit immediately from its shared resources,
high availability, serverless backups and remote
management. Dynamic world wide naming (dWWN) for
the L180 tape library as well as the Fibre Channel tape
drives eases SAN management. The standard, integrated
six-unit rack space is ideal for mounting auxiliary systems
like routers, switches and hubs.
> Easy to install, manage and maintain
Intelligent software automatically monitors, manages,
collects, retains and accesses information remotely
using a standard web browser. Streamlined
management optimizes space, increases availability
and boosts e-business performance. No routine
maintenance is required. And that can eliminate
administrative overhead while freeing your IT staff to
think more strategically.
> 7 x 24 x forever reliability
Tape drives, fans and power supplies are hot
swappable. Uninterruptible and redundant power
supplies are available to help eliminate downtime.
> Enterprise-class performance
The L180 tape library was designed using the same
proven technology as our ultra reliable, highperformance, enterprise-class libraries. And that
means you can count on them for your most
demanding applications.
gigabit Fibre Channel interfaces ideal for attachment to scalable storage area networks (SANs).
GROW AT YOUR OWN SPEED. WITHOUT LIMITS.
The L180 tape library allows you to store and retrieve up to 34.8 TB rapidly and economically with today’s
leading drive technologies. As your needs grow, simply add drives for higher performance and slots for
more capacity, or upgrade your existing L180 tape library by taking advantage of our flexible upgrade
program. True scalability and seamless integration lets your tape library grow as your needs grow.
NOW MIDSIZE ENTERPRISES CAN MULTI-TASK IN A MULTIPLATFORM WORLD
Our Adaptive Media Technology (AMT) lets the L180 tape library provide support for multiple tape
technologies, including up to six StorageTek T9840 tape drives or ten DLT, SDLT and LTO Ultrium
Generation 1 and Generation 2 tape drives in different combinations. Open Systems compatibility
meets both the short- and long-term needs of your business.
PERFORMANCE IN OVERDRIVE
> High drive-to-cartridge ratio is ideal for high bandwidth applications such as imaging.
> Reduce backup windows and restore data quickly.
> StorageTek 4D Robotics and Digital Vision System keep information moving by allowing
applications to read and write simultaneously, with over 450 cartridge exchanges per hour.
THE RIGHT ACCESS. THE RIGHT APPLICATION. THE RIGHT COST
Your applications and environment – not storage limitations – should dictate access to information.
> Native Fibre Channel and Ultra SCSI interfaces provide the right access regardless of the
job or application.
> Combine the L180 library with StorageTek’s native Fibre Channel T9840 or T9940B tape
drives, or with the LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel tape drive, for an excellent all-Fibre Channel
solution certain to increase productivity.
THINK AHEAD. THINK STORAGETEK
A unique combination of performance, reliability and connectivity coupled with superior robotics
make the L180 a leading choice for forward-thinking businesses like yours.
