Oracle StorageTek SL3000 Modular Library System delivers unprecedented value through reliability, consolidation, and flexible scalability. It’s the eco-friendly choice for your data protection, disaster recovery, archive, or cloud deployment needs.

  • Non-disruptive scalability from 200 to just under 6,000 cartridge slots
  • Supports mixed environments, including LTO Ultrium and T10000 tape drives
  • High availability options to support 24x7 operations
  • Flexibility to scale at your own pace while paying only for the capacity you need
  • Reduce costs by consolidating storage onto an eco-efficient library that can save space and power
  • Simplify storage management with the industry’s most flexible solution for partitioning, sharing, and managing data
  • Minimize risk with innovative technologies that have been proven in the most-demanding enterprise environments

Finally, a midrange library that offers uncompromising scalability, connectivity, and choice - key contributors to affordable growth.

The StorageTek SL3000 modular library system enables you to scale from 200 to just under 6,000 cartridge slots and from 1 to 56 tape drives in a footprint that grows linearly in a rack environment. The RealTime Growth capability enables you to install physical capacity in advance and tap into it incrementally, with Capacity on Demand. You can grow at your own pace and pay only for the capacity you need. This approach delivers seamless, non-disruptive scalability with no physical parts to install.

Because the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system doesn’t dictate your choices, you’re free to design storage the way you really want it. With Any Cartridge Any Slot technology, you can use the drive types that make sense for your access and storage needs. Choose capacity-centric Oracle’s StorageTek T10000 tape drives; access-centric Oracle’s StorageTek T9840 tape drives; or Linear Tape Open (LTO) tape drives from HP and IBM. The choice of Fibre Channel or FICON interfaces gives you adaptability in mainframe and open systems environments.

To help your storage budgetgo further, the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system simplifies consolidation to help you save space, power, and money. Unmatched support for mixed and multiple operating environments enables you to consolidate within mainframe, open systems environments, or both. Designed to cost effectively see your business through unpredictable growth and change, the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system is a smart storage investment. You don’t need to spend time on complicated, mind-boggling capacity planning. The StorageTek SL3000 modular library system offers time- and cost saving features that utilize your existing equipment and seamlessly integrate with newer equipment. Features such as Any Cartridge Any Slot technology, true mixed media support, no restriction sharing, flexible partitioning, capacity on demand, and Real Time Growth help you effectively operate and manage your storage environment.

Boost efficiency with the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system’s unique centerline architecture, which alleviates robot contention. Robots travel one-third to one-half the distance required by competitive libraries, improving cartridge-to-drive performance by as much as 50 per cent. And compared to competitive libraries, the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system can reduce your storage footprint by as much as 50 percent and consume at little as one-tenth the library power.

Lower your administrative burden with an intelligent approach to storage management. The StorageTek SL3000 modular library system offers the most flexible solution for partitioning, sharing, and managing. Native physical partitioning requires no extra hardware or software. You can create up to eight partitions; assign them for mainframe and/or open systems use; and address resources down to the slot in any configuration including non-contiguous resource assignments. Any Cartridge Any Slot technology further simplifies storage management by allowing any mix of supported drives and media spread throughout the library.

Oracle’s StorageTek Library Console software, which comes with the StorageTek SL3000 modular library system, enables your staff to easily monitor and manage your library via a remote, network based operator panel or an optional local touch screen operator panel. Either way, you maintain convenient, consistent control through software that lets you do the following:

  • Manage capacity and configure library partitions
  • Display library logs and status alerts
  • Run reports on drive and media statistics
  • Perform audits, self-tests, and diagnostics on the library and its components
  • Monitor library energy usage

The StorageTek SL3000 modular library system can be shared across heterogeneous environments, such as Oracle’s Solaris, Linux, AS/400, mainframe, UNIX, and Windows NT environments, so you can easily match the library configuration to your backup requirements.

What’s more, with Oracle’s StorageTek Virtual Storage Manager, you can use your library in a virtual enterprise mainframe environment.
