This is why tape autoloaders
and libraries remain a compelling alternative to disk storage.
With the breakthrough in price performance offered by the Benchmark DLT1 tape drive, it is now possible to place this drive in an autoloader
that delivers over 500GB of storage capacity for a price lower than some high-end standalone tape drives such as the upcoming LTO products.
provides manufacturers with a wide array of benefits including the following: reduced labor to load, sort and handle cores; non-stop, uninterrupted production; reduced injury liability; increased, reliable productivity; and improved operating efficiencies with less staff.
Tandberg Data announced an addition to their StorageLoader product line, an LTO-2 tape autoloader
that fits in a 1U rackspace.
The Magnum 1x7 LTO Autoloader
is a 2u, rack-mountable, automated backup and restore product built with LTO (Ultrium) Technology and ExaBotics--Exabyte's world-renowned robotics.
The groundbreaking Iomega REV Autoloader
1000 is a 2U single-drive desktop device featuring 10-slots for a native capacity of 350GB (700GB with 2:1 software compression), all managed with the bundled enterprise-strength BrightStor ARCserve Backup Standard Edition r11.
The new Magnum 1x7 LTO Tape Autoloader
offers one LTO-2 drive and seven cartridge slots, claims the company.
The biggest advantage the autoloader
has over other types of shotguns is its ability to make recoil seem lighter than it actually is.
