HP StorageWorks MSL2024 Tape Library
Product Highlights
Manageability
The MSL2024 Tape Library allows web-based remote manageability; the unit can be monitored and
managed from across the room or across the globe. Functions included in the management tool include:
Status information on the drive and system
System configuration operations and reporting
System error and status logs
Library and drive firmware upgrade capabilities
Diagnostic tests and information
Cartridge movement for maintenance and management purposes
Cleaning cartridge support
Security and access control
SNMP support for IP communications
Partitioning and Encryption management
Easy Installation
The MSL2024 Tape Library is shipped as a rack-ready unit. The rack mount hardware included with the
library allows installation in a variety of HP racks which include the 10000 series, 9000 series, 5000
series and System/E racks.
Partitioning
The MSL2024 now includes the ability to be configured as a partitioned library. The MSL2024 may be
configured as up to one partition per drive; two partitions if two 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 MSL2024.
Proven Reliability
With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the MSL2024 Tape Library provides necessary
high reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HP 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.
Data Privacy
To greatly enhance data privacy, HP StorageWorks MSL2024 Tape Libraries are now available with
LTO-4 Ultrium hardware encrypting tape drives for secure high performance backups meeting
consortium specifications for LTO-4. HP Data Protector Software can enable the drive encryption and
provide basic key management capabilities. Additional ISV supporting hardware encryption information
is available on the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Backup Solution website at www.hp.com/go/ebs. The
encryption on LTO-4 media occurs with or without compression, and without speed or capacity
penalties. You can read LTO-2 and LTO-3 tapes, and write LTO-3 tapes, but hardware encryption is not
supported in these formats.
LTO-4 uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with the longest and most secure keys -- 256 bits.
AES-256 is implemented within Galois Counter Mode (GCM). This is a method of increasing AES
security by efficiently adding Message Authentication Codes to ensure the integrity of the backup data
stored on tape. The HP LTO-4 Ultrium Tape Drives are designed to be compliant with the emerging
standard for tape drive security (IEEE 1619.1).

Product Highlights
Encryption
The HP Secure Advantage portfolio is expanding to include a new offering intended for data protection
in small to medium businesses. The HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL LTO-4 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 HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL LTO-4 Encryption Kit is intended to
be an easy and affordable library-enabled solution for small businesses.
Protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data:
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-4
drives/libraries. The USB key server token uses a hardware random number generator, a cryptographic
module running on FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated hardware, password authentication, and digital
envelopes for strong encryption keys and security operations. The second USB token is intended to
provide a backup to the first. The keys are transferred securely token-to-token for backup or export, with
no exposure to insecure PCs, servers, or networks. The encryption kit provides a self-contained solution
for MSL libraries with no additional software, PCs, or servers required or involved.
Protect IT resources and meet compliance requirements:
With the HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL LTO-4 Encryption Kit, users can enable or disable encryption,
configure the USB key server tokens, restore encrypted data, as well as a variety of other tasks. In
addition, the LTO-4 tape drives use the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with the longest and most
secure keys -- 256 bits. AES-256 encryption is implemented using the Galois Counter Mode (GCM).
This method adds Message Authentication Codes to ensure the integrity as well as privacy of the backup
data stored on tape. The HP LTO-4 Ultrium Tape Drives are designed to be compliant with the emerging
standard for tape media security (IEEE 1619.1).
Serviceability
Modular in construction, the MSL2024 Tape Library has easily replaceable components minimizing the
Mean-Time-to-Repair on the unit. Replaceable components include the tape drive, the magazines, and
the chassis (includes robotics, power supply, and controller board). HP StorageWorks Library and Tape
Tools (L&TT) provides easy access to the MSL2024 error log, generates support tickets, and enables
firmware downloads. L&TT can be downloaded for free at: http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools.
LTO Ultrium Technology HP StorageWorks 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 HP
StorageWorks Ultrium Tape Drives can be interchanged directly with Ultrium Tape Drives from other
vendors.

Product Highlights
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with The HP exclusive variable Adaptive
Tape Speed technology, to allow the tape drive to match its transfer rate to the host speed dynamically
and continuously across the wide range of transfer rates. 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
immediately to any speed changes from the host
It minimizes rewinding and repositioning of the tape, significantly reducing physical wear and
increasing reliability
It minimizes the power requirements for the drive by reducing the number of repositions needed

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.
The LTO-4 Ultrium and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data in a nonrewriteable 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, the tape drives can
archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30 years in a secure, untampered state. Since all
LTO-4 Ultrium and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives include support for both rewritable and WORM media, IT
organizations can now easily integrate a secure, long-term archiving solution into their current data
protection strategy. As compared to other technologies that feature support for WORM storage, the tape
drives offers the advantages of:
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 HP WORM media that can store 1.6 TB (2:1 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 fourthgeneration Ultrium products
NOTE: While all HP LTO-4 Ultrium and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives support LTO Ultrium WORM media,
some third- and fourth-generation LTO Ultrium tape drives from other manufacturers may not include
read and write support for LTO Ultrium WORM media. For non-HP third- and fourth-generation 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.
