StorageTek SL150 Tape Library


StorageTek SL3000 Tape library partsSTK SL3000

The storageTek SL150 is the first scalable tape library for entry level users. What makes this library so special, is that it actually replaces three previous libraries. Perfect for small to medium sized companies, this library is an LTO5 / LTO6 library that scales from 45TB to 900TB of capacity by using it’s onboard data compression

The three previous models we were talking about that this new library replaces are the SL24, SL48 and perhaps the most surprising, the StorageTek SL500. You may be asking what makes the StorageTek SL150 so special that it can completely replace these three libraries? The answer is simple. The SL150 can scale anywhere from 30 tape cartridge slots to 300 slots and from one to 20 tape drives.

This new tape library is an LTO5/ LTO6 library that is a half height machine, which means it uses LTO5 and LTO6 half height tape cartridges.
