HP StorageWorks MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family
Product Highlights
Multi-unit Modular
Scalability
The MSL5060 has the capability for multi-unit scalability; up to four libraries can be scaled together in a
virtual library. The first module houses the pass-through mechanism, which has the elevator mechanism
for tape movement. Each additional module requires the 10U pass-through extender.
The HP StorageWorks MSL5030 Tape Library has the capability for multi-unit scalability; up to eight
libraries can be scaled together into a single library. The first two modules are linked using the passthrough mechanism, which has the elevator mechanism for tape movement. Additions of subsequent
modules require the 5U pass-through extender (one for each additional module).
Remote Management
Interface
Web-based management is included to allow monitoring and managing the library from across the
room or across the globe. Many of the functions that are available on the front panel are included in the
remote management interface. These include, but are not limited to, library and drive status, moving
media, load/unload tape drives, access to diagnostics, library configuration, library statistics, inventory
check, and security settings.
HP StorageWorks Library The MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family configurations are supported on HP's industry-leading
and Tape Tools (L&TT)
diagnostic tool - HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT). L&TT is a single, convenient program
that's a snap to install and simple to operate. L&TT's intuitive user interface eliminates the need for
training and deploys in less than five minutes. This robust diagnostic tool is designed for both the
experienced professional and the untrained administrator. It ensures product integrity through selfdiagnostics and fast resolution to device concerns. Additional information on L&TT plus download
information can be found at: http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools.
Manageability
The HP StorageWorks MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family configurations are fully supported through
Insight Manager 7.0, providing information to administrators for robotic status, tape status changes and
fault status. HP TSMC (tape storage management console) provides diagnostics and easy firmware
upgrade capabilities.
NOTE: Additional information on Insight Manager can be found at:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/cim7-description.html

Using LTO Ultrium tape drives, and proven library robotics with a rating of 2,000,000 robot
load/unload cycles, the MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family provides the necessary high reliability for
today's demanding environment.
Investment Protection
The MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family can be upgraded to Ultrium 460 or Ultrium 960 tape drives
in 3 easy steps:
1. Remove the existing tape drives and replace them with the new tape drives
2. Upgrade the library firmware
3. Load Ultrium media into the library
NOTE: When doing this, the library MUST be configured with one (1) drive per SCSI bus and for Fibre
Channel configurations must be configured with the e1200-160..
NOTE: Ultrium 460 drives can read and write Ultrium 1 media providing backward compatibility.
NOTE: Ultrium 960 drives can read and write Ultrium 2 media providing backward compatibility.

HP StorageWorks MSL5000 Ultrium Tape Library Family
Product Highlights
LTO Ultrium Technology The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 960 Tape Drive represents HP's third-generation of LTO tape drive
technology. Positioned as the highest capacity drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 960 features
an 800 GB compressed (2:1) storage capacity using new LTO 3 media. By doubling the capacity of
current Ultrium drives, HP customers now require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs,
significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI. The Ultrium 960 also features a
compressed (2:1) data transfer rate of 160 MB/s. Using a new 16-channel recording head, an Ultra320
SCSI interface, and increases in media tracks and bit density, the HP Ultrium 960 sets a new
performance benchmark as the world's fastest tape drive.
HP's Ultrium tape technology uses a "best of breed" technology approach, taking the best features from
other tape technologies and combining them into a single "superdrive" without the need for design
compromises. Ultrium 2 builds on the strengths and success of Ultrium 1 to deliver even better resilience
than before. The Ultrium 460 tape drive has a mean time between failures (MTBF) rating of 250,000
hours at a 100 percent duty cycle, making it a truly enterprise class tape drive.
Additionally, Ultrium 460 tape drives are fully backwards compatible with all Ultrium Generation 1
products from all licensed manufacturers, and can both read and write Ultrium 1 tapes.
NOTE: For additional information regarding the HP StorageWorks Ultrium Tape Drives, please see the
following QuickSpecs at:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11739_div/11739_div.html (Worldwide)
Data Rate Matching
An exclusive feature of HP Ultrium tape drives, data rate matching allows the tape drive to adjust its
transfer rate to the speed of the host dynamically and continuously. This feature, coupled with the
Ultrium buffer management technology within the data path, ensures that the tape drive continues to
stream data, reducing the need to rewind the tape back and forth to wait for the host. This feature brings
two big advantages:
It optimizes performance, getting the best performance possible for the environment, regardless of
the speed of the host or the network.
It reduces wear and tear on drive and media, thus increasing reliability
HP Ultrium Storage
Media
HP recommends that you use HP-branded cartridges in your MSL Tape Libraries to assure the highest
level of protection for your valuable data.
The HP specification for storage media is the most thorough and comprehensive in the industry. All HP
cartridges must satisfy an exhaustive battery of additional tests that relate directly to real life situations,
where real data and real businesses are at stake.
HP cartridges are optimised for use in HP tape devices. This means your best choice for ease of support
and maximum dependability is to use HP-storage media at all times
NOTE: For additional information regarding the HP Ultrium Storage Media, please see the following

* Support Plus covers Hardware support only.
Hewlett Packard also offers 1-year options for the services quoted above.
Due to the complexities involved with the initial installation of an enterprise Library into a SAN
environment, Hewlett Packard recommends that customers take advantage of the SAN Implementation
Service (HA114A1). This service covers pre-installation preparation activities, installation and
configuration of the library and router, configuration of hosts and switches, verification testing and
customer orientation.
In order to maximize ROI and product uptime, and minimize the cost of ownership, Hewlett-Packard
recommends the 3-year, 24 x 7 service options. These offerings will ensure that any product issue can be
tackled when they occur (most back up issues will occur outside standard business hours) and that the
service coverage regarding period, covers the minimum expected life of the host system.

Configuration Information
(for rack-mount units only)
Step 1 - Select a Configuration
NOTE: The list below is not intended to show all possible configurations, but to show some of the most common. In some cases, it is
advantageous to utilize MSL5030 and MSL5060 libraries in the scaled stack. Please refer to the MSL5000 library QuickSpecs for
more details. The Ultrium MSL5000 series of libraries is scalable to 40U resulting in 16 drives and 240 slots.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Each library unit comes with a rack kit specially designed for HP 9000 & 10000 racks. If the unit is going to
be installed into a HP Surestore System\E rack or an Alpha rack, then 1 rack-mount kit per library unit must be purchased. Please
utilize "STEP 2" of the configuration information.
