Easy Installation
The MSL Tape Libraries are shipped as a rack-ready unit. The rack mount hardware included with the
library allows installation in a variety of HPE racks. For more information on the HPE rack offerings,
please see the following URL:
http:/www.hpe.com/info/rackandpower.html
Partitioning
The MSL Tape Libraries now include the ability to be configured as a partitioned library. MSL Libraries
may be configured with up to one partition per drive; four partitions if four drives are installed.
Partitioning allows each partitioned library to be presented to the host as an independent library,
separate from other partitions in the library. Hosts for each partition own independent sets of media
and can use ISV software that is different from the other partitions allowing maximum flexibility and
utilization of the MSL library.
Proven Reliability
With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the MSL Tape Libraries provides necessary high
reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HPE Ultrium
products feature Data Rate Matching (DRM). This allows the tape drive to dynamically and
continuously adjust the speed of the drive, to match the speed of the host or network. This increases
performance, reduces mechanical wear on the tape drive and extends tape life.
Disaster Recovery and
Security
Removable media also has the advantage that data is held 'offline' which means that archive data on
tape has the additional level of protection from the threats to on-line data from viruses, hackers and
cyber-attacks. LTO-6 Ultrium tape drives include hardware based data encryption to prevent
unauthorized access to data at rest and cartridges are available with write-once-read-many (WORM)
capability to prevent accidental overwriting of data archived on the tape. Both WORM and hardware
data encryption features help organizations to comply with increased data security regulations

Product Highlights
Data Encryption
The HPE MSL Tape Libraries offers multiple options for data encryption, depending on the
requirements for policy, regulation, compliance, and centralized key management.
Protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data:
The HPE 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit provides a library-enabled encryption solution that greatly
enhances data privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of your critical business data while supporting
compliance requirements. While there are a wide range of encryption solutions available, the HPE 1/8
G2 & MSL Encryption Kit is intended to be an easy and affordable library-enabled solution for small
businesses.
The encryption kit includes two USB key server tokens, product documentation, and firmware
support. One encryption kit is needed per library or autoloader and it must be physically accessible
so that the USB token can be inserted into the automation device. One of the two tokens will plug
into the USB port in the autoloader or library and will generate and maintain encryption keys for the
LTO-7, LTO-6, LTO-5 and LTO-4 drives/libraries. The USB key server token uses a hardware random
number generator, password authentication, and digital envelopes for strong encryption keys and
security operations. The encryption kit provides a self-contained solution for autoloaders and MSL
libraries with no additional software, PCs, or servers required or involved.
Protect critical data across an enterprise:
To meet requirements for larger scale encryption key managers, the HPE MSL Tape Libraries
supports KMIP 1.2 compliant key managers. With the purchase of the KMIP Encryption License, the
1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader and MSL libraries will be able to request encryption keys from KMIP 1.2
compliant key managers, for data encryption and key management.

Serviceability
Modular in design, the MSL Tape Libraries has easily replaceable components minimizing the MeanTime-to-Repair on the unit. Replaceable components include the tape drive, the magazines, the power
supply and the controller board. HPE Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) provides easy access to the MSL
error log, generates support tickets, and enables firmware downloads. L&TT can be downloaded for
free at: http://www.hpe.com/support/tapetools.
LTO Ultrium Technology HPE LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium Tape Drives use best of breed technology. By taking the best
features from other tape technologies and combining them into a single new technology, Ultrium tape
drives are in a league of their own. Inclusion of innovative features such as Adaptive Tape Speed (ATS)
ensure that Ultrium drives can meet the performance and reliability demands of a library environment.
LTO technology is an open industry standard format; thus data written on HPE Ultrium Tape Drives
can be interchanged directly with Ultrium Tape Drives from other vendors.
HPE LTO tape drives and automation products are founded on the LTO open standard and adhere to
the published LTO format roadmap to generation 8 at 32TB of compressed capacity per cartridge by
Generation 8. With in-built two generation backwards compatibility, LTO customers can be assured of
investment protection.
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with variable tape drive motor speeds
to match the tape drive transfer rate to the host output. . This feature ensures that the tape drive
continues to stream data regardless of the environment, and brings three big advantages:
•
It optimizes performance and maximizes overall efficiency, allowing the drive to respond

Critical to the success of data retention policies in highly regulated environments is the ability to store
and manage data in an unalterable state. Following stringent guidelines set forth by regulatory
agencies such as the SEC and HIPPA, IT organizations must now integrate new solutions and policies
that can verify the integrity of stored data for periods that can extend well beyond seven years.
Every generation of LTO Ultrium since LTO-3 tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data
in a read-only, non-rewriteable format that meets the most stringent regulatory guidelines. Using a
combination of integrated fail-safe features in the drive firmware, cartridge memory, and tape
formatting, LTO Ultrium provides the ability to archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30
years in a secure, untampered state. Ultrium tape drives include support for both rewritable and WORM
media providing for a secure, long-term archiving solution into any data protection strategy. LTO
Ultrium WORM provides the following advantages:
•
•
•
•
•
•
A single drive to support all backup and archiving needs
Two distinctive tape cartridges to easily distinguish and manage both rewriteable and WORM
data cartridges
A specially designed WORM data cartridge with multiple integrated fail-safe features to
prevent accidental or intentional overwriting of data
High-capacity, low-cost HPE WORM media that can store up to 6.25 TB (2.5:1 compression) of
data on a single data cartridge
Support from many backup and archiving software vendors, providing the most
comprehensive and mainstream support in the industry
The LTO open standard that offers greater choice and compatibility across all third- and
fourth-generation Ultrium products
NOTE: While all HPE LTO-7, LTO-6, LTO-5, LTO-4, and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives support LTO
Ultrium WORM media, some LTO Ultrium tape drives from other manufacturers may not include
read and write support for LTO Ultrium WORM media. For non-HPE LTO Ultrium tape drives,
please check the manufacturers' specifications to ensure this support is provided if you are using
your WORM media. If WORM support is not provided, the drive will eject the WORM tape
cartridge immediately upon insertion into to the tape drive

WARNING: This product can ONLY be used with an HPE approved power cord for your specific
geographic region. Use of a non-HPE approved power cord may result in: 1) not meeting
individual country specific safety requirements; 2) insufficient conductor ampacity that could
result in overheating with potential personal injury and/or property damage; and 3) an
unapproved power cord could fracture resulting in the internal contacts being exposed, which
potentially could subject the user to a shock hazard. Hewlett Packard Enterprise disclaims all
liability in the event a non-HPE approved power cord is used.For a complete list of power cord
