T120+ takes StorageLibrary series up to 114 slots and 91TB native capacity

Oslo Norway, (20 April, 2009): Tandberg Data, the global supplier of backup and archiving solutions, today introduced the StorageLibrary T120+, a scalable tape library, offering from 24 to 114 slots, with capacities ranging from 9.6TB to 91TB (native). The StorageLibrary T40+ Series, comprising of the StorageLibrary T40+, T80+ and T120+, offers a choice of Full Height and Half Height LTO-3 and LTO-4 drives and a host of management features.

The Tandberg StorageLibrary™ T40+ Series combines high capacity and performance in scalable 4U form factor, scaling up to 12U and 91TB with the T120+. The libraries offer outstanding value for IT departments that need to perform large, unattended backups, and who require flexibility, reliability and a future proof technology. With flexible capacity, performance and support for LVD SCSI, Native Fibre Channel and SAS connectivity, the StorageLibrary is suited to fit in most midrange and enterprise storage environments.

“Exponential data growth, regulatory compliance and data availability requirements have fuelled the need for high capacity, high performance, enterprise-level data protection solutions for large enterprises as well as for medium-sized businesses,” says Kjell Øyvind Aasene, Business unit manager for tape at Tandberg Data. “Many companies are facing budget constraints and with the StorageLibrary Series, they can limit the initial backup and archiving investment, and build on that investment by expanding the unit in future. Scalable solutions such as the StorageLibrary allow customers to extend their backup solution as requirements grow.”

Flexible Scalability

The Tandberg StorageLibrary T120+ offers compressed capacities up to 182TB and performance up to 10.5TB/hr (compressed). The Capacity on Demand (COD) feature allows users to easily increase usable capacity as their backup requirements grow. The Performance on Demand (POD) feature allows users to add up to 6 full height or 12 half height LTO drives. Users can add additional drives or upgrade to the next generation LTO drive to increase their library’s performance and capacity when they need it.

Ease of management

The StorageLibrary T40+ Series has a host of management and maintenance features, ensuring minimized down-time and ease of management. Redundant power supplies with load-balancing and fail-over enhance the library’s reliability. Using the browser based remote management interface, administrators can remotely monitor, control, configure and diagnose the libraries via the Internet from anywhere in the world. The StorageLibrary can automatically send an email notification if something is wrong with the library, and it supports SNMP – which will immediately send information on any error situation that occurs, to the host.

The libraries offer WORM (write once read many) and Encryption (LTO-4 only) for enhanced data protection and regulatory compliance.

Pricing and Availability

The StorageLibrary T40+ and T80+ are available now and the StorageLibrary T120+ will be available in April 2009, through Tandberg Data’s established channel of distribution and reseller partners. The manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of the T40+ starts at $5 710 (24 slots), and includes 1 year Advanced Replacement Service (on component level only) and a 3 year factory warranty. The MSRP of the T120+ with 114 slots starts at $22 386. To secure maximum data protection, additional on-site Service and Support options are available.
