Tape Libraries For Backup & Archive Storage

Automated tape handling became widespread in mainframe computer centers beginning over 40 years. The benefits of this technology are now widely available to all data storage users in tape libraries that leverage contemporary low cost, high density cartridge tape formats. Qualstar has been a pioneer in tape-based backup and archive storage for over 20 years, producing solutions that consistently deliver high quality, unmatched reliability and real value.

Tape Libraries vs. Tape Autoloaders
Autoloaders are limited in both capacity and throughput. Autoloaders hold one tape drive and a limited number of cartridges, typically 8 to 16. They are primarily intended to support small department or single application backups. These products are usually designed for low cost, and are not intended for high duty cycle operations.

Tape libraries invariably house two or more drives and from 20 to over tens of thousands of tapes. Libraries are designed for continuous, unattended operation and support simultaneous reading and writing to multiple drives. Libraries also offer key features such as barcode readers to scan labels on cartridges, and I/O ports for importing and exporting tapes under application control.

LTO Tape Drives
Qualstar designs and manufactures over twenty tape libraries based on the Ultrium LTO tape format. These libraries house 2 to 128 drives and over 11,780 cartridges, providing combinations of capacity and data throughput to match any data protection and archive requirement.

Eco-friendly Solutions
Qualstar's N2Power subsidiary has pioneered and patented hi-efficiency power technology for years. Storing data in our tape libraries uses much less power than disk, saving money by substantially reducing electrical and cooling requirements. See our case study Green vs Green for more.

Partnerships World-wide
Qualstar tape library families are sold worldwide through Systems Integrators and Value Added Resellers who share our commitment to quality and deliver complete storage solutions to their customers.

 

Tape Libraries For Backup & Archive Storage

Qualstar has been creating reliable, cost effective and easy to use automated tape libraries for over fifteen years. Our libraries house multiple tape drives and span capacities from 75 terabytes to more than 35 petabytes. With low cost, high density Ultrium Linear Tape Open (LTO), tape libraries are clearly the most efficient and cost effective storage for backup, data protection and archiving.

Over twenty tape library models provide combinations of capacity and throughput to match any storage management requirement. At the enterprise level, our libraries house up to 128 tape drives and 11,780 cartridges, and store more that 17.6 PetaBytes (native) of data.

Qualstar tape libraries are designed for continuous, unattended operation and allow simultaneous reading and writing to multiple drives. They also offer key features such as barcode readers to scan labels on cartridges, and an I/O Port for importing and exporting individual tapes under application control.

Full Remote Tape & Data Management
All RLS tape libraries contain Q-Link Remote Library Manager, and our XLS series contain our X-Link Remote Library Manager. These web browser based remote library managers enable administrators to configure, upgrade, and monitor any of our libraries via a company intranet or over the Internet from anywhere in the world. Q-Link and X-Link extend the library's comprehensive front panel menu system and adds additional functionality such as automatic e-mail notification based on rules set by the administrator, and remotely implemented firmware updates.
