Tape Consolidation With the Sun Storagetek L1400 Tape Library - Achieving Midrange Storage Efficiencies: An Overview and Comparison With the Quantum Scalar i2000
Source: Sun Microsystems
This paper introduces general tape consolidation concepts and describes the Sun StorageTek L1400 tape library features that support consolidation. Consolidation benefits fall into three key areas: improved IT productivity, the ability to respond quickly to changing business priorities, and lowered TCO through increased asset utilization. In support of these areas, the StorageTek L1400 tape library delivers superior growth capability, simple library sharing, high performance, excellent TCO, and high reliability - all supported by world-class service. By way of illustration, the paper provides a general comparison of the StorageTek L1400 consolidation support to Quantum's Scalar i2000.
