Product Description: 

Qualstar's TLS-8111 offers superior performance and value for LTO Ultrium tape users. With capacities from 1.1 TB to 4.4 TB, the TLS-8111 Tape Library economically and reliably automates tape-based applications, whether backing up a single server or as an integral part of an enterprise-wide storage management solution.

The TLS-8000 family comprises 7 models, providing a broad range of cost-effective solutions. Housing one to eight IBM LTO Ultrium technology tape drives and up to 264 tapes, TLS-8000 multi-drive library models readily support concurrent reading and writing to meet the throughput needs of today's rapidly-growing servers and networks. Support for multiple SCSI busses is built-in to maximize throughput. A Fibre Channel interface option brings TLS and Ultrium technologies to the latest SAN and serverless backup applications.

The TLS-8000 Series also offers advanced features such as Logical LibraryTM barcode scanning of tape cartridges, and an I/O Port is included in several models for importing and exporting individual tapes under application control. Qualstar is known worldwide for quality and reliability. All electrical and mechanical adjustments have been eliminated for easy installation and enhanced reliability. Tape drive reliability is improved by providing individual fans for each Ultrium drive to insure proper cooling. Filtered, positive air pressure is maintained throughout the library to reduce contamination.

Providing built-in capacity and performance growth is a hallmark of all Qualstar TLS-Series automation families. All drive bays are pre-wired: users can easily install additional tape drives for increased throughput. Field upgrade kits are also available to double the tape capacity of some models. Offering 25 models for DLT, AIT, Mammoth/Eliant VXA and LTO Ultrium formats, our TLS-Series families consistently set industry standards for quality, performance and value.
