Why the StorStation LIB81?
AIT tape drives have proven incredible popular with users, with more than 600,000 drives shipped since the first release in 1996. These drives underpin the security of IT systems around the world.
Optimum Rack System
Many offices that are packed with proliferating PCs can be streamlined by introducing the rack-mountable AIT tape library LIB81. The compact AIT format frees up office space with its high-density data storage and offers great investment returns as the storage volume increases. There is a growing demand for efficient stacking of servers, storage, and network equipment in 19 inch racks to reduce TCO by maximising system expandability, use of space, and ease of maintenance.
Simple Operation from Web Browser or Front Panel System set-up and monitoring can be carried out easily from a web browser on a client PC, or from the front panel. The tape cartridge is controlled at high speed with supreme reliability thanks to the R-MIC reader installed by default in the AIT-4 tape drives, facilitating recovery in the event of a system crash.
Suitable for?
Local and remote sites with no IT staff.
Businesses that have outgrown standalone tape drives and need to upgrade to an automated device.
Companies that need to perform rotation backups each day.
Migrating from DDS to AIT.
