StorageTek intros high-end DLT library
Last quarter, StorageTek extended its reach into high-end NT and UNIX markets with the announcement of the 9740 scalable DLT library. Part of the company`s OPENstorage product line, the 9740 supports up to six DLT cartridges--a new standard for the number of cartridges that can be linked to a DLT library. By linking the drives together, job requests can be spread among connected libraries, allowing for faster data access rates.
A fully configured 9740 DLT holds up to 60 DLT drives and 3,000 cartridges with any mix of DLT4000 or DLT7000 cartridges. The library has a native capacity of 6.5TB to 105TB and supports either ACSLS or SCSI. Starting price: $73,000. www.storagetek.com.
