COMPACT LTO-6/LTO-7 TAPE LIBRARY

Easy installation and easy maintenance are two important features of the Q48 compact LTO tape library, which is designed to be Simply Reliable™. Housed in a rackmountable 4U enclosure, the Q48 offers capacities up to 288 terabytes (native) and 720 terabytes (compressed). The menu-driven graphical built-in operator control panel is easy to use, and the identical functionality may also be accessed via the integrated browser-based remote management interface (RMI). 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 drives, power supply and controller board are removable with standard tools.
