Tributary SL3000 Tape Library

The Tributary SL3000 tape library, integrated into the NonStop™ environment by Tributary, features an open design, which offers true mixed media, logical and physical partitioning capabilities, advanced management, and high availability features, so you can consolidate mainframe and open systems environments while minimizing power, space, and operating costs.

The modular design scales from 200 to 3000 cartridge slots and from one to 56 drives, all in a footprint that grows linearly in a rack environment.

The SL3000’s mix and match tape drive technology lets you design your storage environment. Which means you can use the drive types that best meet your access and storage needs: the 9840 tape drives, or LTO 5 and LTO 4 drives.

The SL3000 tape library offers a fresh, eco-efficient approach to midrange storage, enabling you to reduce costs, simplify management, and minimize risk.
