Dell's PowerVault TL2000 tape library offers simple and affordable tape automation for organizations whose data-protection needs have outgrown autoloader technology. It is the solution of choice for small and medium businesses that require affordable, easy-to-use, automated tape backup.
Regular, disciplined backup is a vital part of a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy. The PowerVault TL2000 is a powerful tape library that helps organizations automate their backup processes to reduce the need for manual intervention and the risk of human error. The PowerVault TL2000 uses the optical cartridge location technology for precision cartridge handling and inventory, which helps improve the overall reliability of backups.
With its ultra-compact form-factor, the PowerVault TL2000 packs an impressive amount of information in a small amount of space. Occupying only two units (2U) of rack space, the library can hold up to 24 tapes providing up to 19.2TB (with Ultrium LTO-4 800GB tapes) of native capacity-ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.
The PowerVault TL2000 supports Ultrium LTO-4 drives - a high-speed tape technology that can natively back up an impressive 432GB of data per hour. LTO technology is based on a tape industry standard that specifies backward read-and-write compatibility with LTO-4 and LTO-3 generation media (n, n-1) and read compatibility with LTO-2 (n-2) media.
