High scalability

  • Pay as you grow with the fast, non-disruptive addition of Expansion Modules for expansion of tape slots.

  • Start with 40-slot 3U form-factor Base Library Module, and add up to 6 Expansion Library Modules for a total of 280 slots in a 21U rack form factor.

  • 12.6PB of total maximum capacity with 280 slots and LTO-9 drives.

  • Performance scaling from 1 to 21 LTO HH Tape Drives and transfer rates of up to 300 MB/s per LTO-9 Tape Drive native.

Cost Effective tape solution

  • Existing customers of MSL 1/8 Autoloaders, MSL2024 and MSL6480 Tape Libraries can repurpose their existing LTO-9, LTO-8, LTO-7 and LTO-6 drives in the new MSL3040 to leverage their investment.

  • Industry leading storage density to save rack space, floor space, power, cooling and management costs –13 cartridge slots (585 TB) per 1U of rack space.

  • Great flexibility with up to 21 logical library partitions.
