Supplying LTO tape autoloader backup devices
For the past 23 years, we have been supplying LTO tape autoloaders to a large and varied number of customers worldwide. We started out initially selling DLT based tape autoloaders and all other types of tape technologies including 4mm DAT, 8mm Exabyte, SLR finally settling on the defacto standard of LTO tape autoloaders. We are able to supply an LTO tape autoloaders from all the major tape vendors, all we require is how many LTO tape drives, host interface connection, warranty/support options and we’ll quote based on this, typically within 8 hours or less!
The LTO tape autoloaders scale from 8 to 24 slots and many support multiple tape drive types and have options that allow business users to add slot capacity on demand by a simple license upgrade.
The definition of a tape autoloader is that it has one or two tape drives and multiple tape media slots with robotics controlled by backup software to move tape around within the tape autoloader. They were designed to automate the mundane task of manually inserting tapes into standalone tape drives. As disk capacities increased and network speeds improved organisations could then backup to a central LTO tape autoloader using a single copy of backup software unload the backup agents on the servers to be backed up, rather than multiple tape drives each with a copy of backup software.
If for any reason you cannot see or need to discuss your LTO tape autoloader requirement, are interested in trading up an existing autoloader or require support renewal, we are happy to discuss your requirements in more detail over the phone or have a meeting and provide a quotation.
In addition to the LTO tape autoloaders we can also supply LTO tape media in small quantities or in bulk.
