Tape Libraries by Qualstar
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.
Qualstar Innovations Improving
Reliability & Performance
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.
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 the Green vs Green case study for more information.
Qualstar tape libraries are sold worldwide through Systems Integrators and Value Added Resellers who share our commitment to quality and deliver complete storage solutions to their customers.
