Q24 Compact Tape Library | Huge Capacity, Small Form Factor

From simple installation to easy maintenance, the Q24 Compact LTO tape library is designed with reliability and the customer experience in mind. Feature-rich and compact in a rackmountable 2U enclosure, the Q24 offers capacities up to 288 terabytes (native) and 720 terabytes (compressed). The unit’s built-in menu-driven operator control panel is intuitive, and the integrated browser-based remote management interface (RMI) offers all the same functionality. This enables IT administrators to remotely configure, manage and diagnose the library from anywhere in the world via the Internet. All field-replaceable components—such as the tape drive, power supply, and controller board—are removable with standard tools.
