HP M8501 / M8502 LTO 3 FC ACL

The M8501/ M8502 15-cartridge ACL, available on HP NonStop™ servers, is designed to address today's midrange data storage challenges: short backup windows, tight budgets, expanding data, limited IT resources, costly downtime, the need to consolidate storage and potentially complex networking environments.

Each ACL unit has 15 LTO cartridge slots and supports one LTO 3 FC drive, providing up to 6 TB of native capacity and a native transfer rate of 80 MB/second. This ACL is available in tabletop and rack-mount configurations.

The M8501/M8502's size provides superior density, minimizing the use of costly data center space. It combines ease-of-use features and reliable trouble-free operation.

With the integration of the M8501/M8502 into the HP NonStop platform, Tributary Systems, Inc. has provided an affordable solution designed for the diversity of departmental networks and SANs.
