TL881 Base Library Unit
MiniLibrary Expansion Unit
MiniLibrary Data Unit
Each library installation will
require, (1) library system, (1)
geography specific localization
kit, (1) differential SCSI cable for
each DLT drive pair, and up to
10 pieces of DLT media with bar
code labels for each TL881
module. Multiple configurations
will require additional passthrough kits.
The minimum orderable
configuration consists of a single
library system (for instances
where customer already has the
necessary SCSI cables, power
cord, and media).
Installation services may also be
ordered for customers who wish
to have a certified Compaq
Engineer perform an on-site
library installation.

TL881 Automated DLT Tape
Library Solution
High-Capacity Unattended Backup and Restore
The TL881 can provide years of fully automated operation for backup, save & restore and hierarchical storage
management of critical data when coupled with a wide array of qualified industry-standard backup applications.
The TL881 is offered as a standalone tabletop unit or as a scalable / stackable rack mount unit, with a
removable 10 cartridge magazine, and integral bar code reader and either one or two Compaq DLT 20/40 drives.
Capacity, Performance and Scalability at an aggressive price point
The TL881 is built on a modular concept, offering unparalleled scalability and the ability to custom configure a
rack mount solution to meet specific performance and capacity requirements. The TL881 product solution is
based on three distinct modules; the TL881 MiniLibrary Base Unit, the MiniLibrary Expansion Unit, and the
MiniLibrary Data Unit. The TL881 solution can be configured as a single device or a multi-module device using
up to (6) six modules in a single rack configuration.
Note: The MiniLibrary Expansion Unit and MiniLibrary Data Unit is compatible with both the TL881 and TL891
configurations.
TL881 MiniLibrary Base Unit
The TL881 base unit can support up to two DLT 20/40 drives, offering up to 10 MB/s of performance. With 10
data cartridges, the TL881 base unit offers 400 GB of compressed storage capacity in a small 4U height.
MiniLibrary Expansion Unit
The MiniLibrary Expansion Unit assumes control over all attached TL881 modules, allowing for the creation of a
multi-module virtual library in a single rack mount configuration. It also provides an additional 640 GB of
capacity (no drives). The Expansion Unit supports up to (5) five connected additional TL881 modules in a single
rack mount configuration. With the use of a special pass-through mechanism, all tapes within this multi-module
configuration are available to all DLT drives, for added performance and redundancy of operation.
This true scalability of performance and capacity allows the end user the opportunity to configure the device to
meet their specific requirements as well as offers a "pay as you grow" solution for easy capital management.
The multi-unit configuration can also be disassembled at any time and each module can be redeployed to meet
changing corporate backup strategies.
MiniLibrary Data Unit
The MiniLibrary Data Unit is a 16 cartridge rack mount module which provides for additional capacity (up to 640
GB of compressed storage) in a TL881 multi-module configuration.
Proven Reliability
Using DLT tape drives, and proven robotics with a rating of 500,000 load/unload cycles, the TL881 is one of the
most reliable mini-libraries in the industry.
Proven DLT Technology
Digital Linear Tape uses a proven linear recording technology, a highly accurate tape guide system, and a read
after write LZ correction system to provide high-capacity, high reliability data back up and restore. DLT has fast
become the industry-standard secondary storage tape format for departmental and enterprise backup.
Manageability
The TL881 library configurations are fully supported through Compaq Insight Manager 4.30, providing
information to administrators for both robotic and tape status changes. Other data and automation
manageability features are provided via specific third party applications software packages.
