Features 01
Multi-unit Scalability: The MSL6000 Tape Library has the capability for multi-unit scalability; up to four 10U libraries or eight 5U libraries can be scaled together into a single library. For the MSL6030/6026, the first two modules are linked using the MSL Universal Pass-Through Mechanism base unit kit, which has a shuttle mechanism for tape movement between units.
Manageability: The MSL6000 Tape Library includes web-based management to allow monitoring and managing of the library from across the room or across the globe. Many of the functions that are available on the front panel are included in the remote management interface. These include, but are not limited to: library and drive status, moving media, load/unload tape drives, access to diagnostics, library configuration, library statistics, inventory check, and security settings.
Proven Reliability: With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the MSL6000 Tape Library provides necessary high reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HP Ultrium products feature Data Rate Matching (DRM). This allows the tape drive to dynamically and continuously adjust the speed of the drive, from 27 MB/s to 80 MB/s, to match the speed of the host or network.
Factory Express Portfolio for Servers and Storage: HP Factory Express offers configuration, customization, integration and deployment services for HP servers and storage products. Customers can choose how their factory solutions are built, tested, integrated, shipped and deployed. Customization must comply with all relevant product specifications and factory supported configurations.
HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT): The MSL6000 Tape Library configurations are supported on HP's industry-leading diagnostic tool - HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT). L&TT is a single, convenient program that's a snap to install and simple to operate. L&TT's intuitive user interface eliminates the need for training and deploys in less than five minutes. This robust diagnostic tool is designed for both the experienced professional and the untrained administrator.
LTO Ultrium Technology: The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 960 Tape Drive represents HP's third-generation of LTO tape drive technology. Positioned as the highest capacity drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 960 features an 800 GB compressed (2:1) storage capacity using new LTO 3 media. By doubling the capacity of current Ultrium drives, HP customers now require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI.
Data Rate Matching: An exclusive feature of HP Ultrium tape drives, data rate matching allows the tape drive to adjust its transfer rate to the speed of the host dynamically and continuously. This feature, coupled with the Ultrium buffer management technology within the data path, ensures that the tape drive continues to stream data, reducing the need to rewind the tape back and forth to wait for the host.
HP Ultrium WORM: Critical to the success of data retention policies in highly regulated environments is the ability to store and manage data in an unalterable state. Following stringent guidelines set forth by regulatory agencies such as the SEC and HIPPA, IT organizations must now integrate new solutions and policies that can verify the integrity of stored data for periods that can extend well beyond seven years.
SDLT Technology: DLT (digital linear tape) uses a proven linear recording technology, a highly accurate tape guide system, and a read after write correction system to provide high-capacity, high reliability data backup and restoration. DLT has fast become the industry-standard secondary storage tape format for departmental and enterprise backup.
HP SDLT WORM: The HP StorageWorks SDLT600 Tape Drive includes support for WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) functionality. WORM technology provides an enhanced level of security against accidental or malicious alteration of data on tape cartridges. WORM can be important when implementing data retention policies to be compliant with regulations regarding the storage of data on non-rewritable, non-erasable media.

Multi-unit Scalability: The MSL6000 Tape Library has the capability for multi-unit scalability; up to four 10U libraries or eight 5U libraries can be scaled together into a single library. For the MSL6030/6026, the first two modules are linked using the MSL Universal Pass-Through Mechanism base unit kit, which has a shuttle mechanism for tape movement between units.
Manageability: The MSL6000 Tape Library includes web-based management to allow monitoring and managing of the library from across the room or across the globe. Many of the functions that are available on the front panel are included in the remote management interface. These include, but are not limited to: library and drive status, moving media, load/unload tape drives, access to diagnostics, library configuration, library statistics, inventory check, and security settings.
Proven Reliability: With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the MSL6000 Tape Library provides necessary high reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HP Ultrium products feature Data Rate Matching (DRM). This allows the tape drive to dynamically and continuously adjust the speed of the drive, from 27 MB/s to 80 MB/s, to match the speed of the host or network.
Factory Express Portfolio for Servers and Storage: HP Factory Express offers configuration, customization, integration and deployment services for HP servers and storage products. Customers can choose how their factory solutions are built, tested, integrated, shipped and deployed. Customization must comply with all relevant product specifications and factory supported configurations.
HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT): The MSL6000 Tape Library configurations are supported on HP's industry-leading diagnostic tool - HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT). L&TT is a single, convenient program that's a snap to install and simple to operate. L&TT's intuitive user interface eliminates the need for training and deploys in less than five minutes. This robust diagnostic tool is designed for both the experienced professional and the untrained administrator.
LTO Ultrium Technology: The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 960 Tape Drive represents HP's third-generation of LTO tape drive technology. Positioned as the highest capacity drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 960 features an 800 GB compressed (2:1) storage capacity using new LTO 3 media. By doubling the capacity of current Ultrium drives, HP customers now require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI.
Data Rate Matching: An exclusive feature of HP Ultrium tape drives, data rate matching allows the tape drive to adjust its transfer rate to the speed of the host dynamically and continuously. This feature, coupled with the Ultrium buffer management technology within the data path, ensures that the tape drive continues to stream data, reducing the need to rewind the tape back and forth to wait for the host.
HP Ultrium WORM: Critical to the success of data retention policies in highly regulated environments is the ability to store and manage data in an unalterable state. Following stringent guidelines set forth by regulatory agencies such as the SEC and HIPPA, IT organizations must now integrate new solutions and policies that can verify the integrity of stored data for periods that can extend well beyond seven years.
SDLT Technology: DLT (digital linear tape) uses a proven linear recording technology, a highly accurate tape guide system, and a read after write correction system to provide high-capacity, high reliability data backup and restoration. DLT has fast become the industry-standard secondary storage tape format for departmental and enterprise backup.
HP SDLT WORM: The HP StorageWorks SDLT600 Tape Drive includes support for WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) functionality. WORM technology provides an enhanced level of security against accidental or malicious alteration of data on tape cartridges. WORM can be important when implementing data retention policies to be compliant with regulations regarding the storage of data on non-rewritable, non-erasable media.
