Tandberg has added to its tape automation suite with the release of the DLTVS160 1U StorageLoader. It supports one DLTVS160 tape drive and up to eight data cartridges stored in two removable four cartridge magazines and fits into a 1U rack-mount space. Assuming a 2:1 data compression rate, the autoloader can also handle up to 1.28TB of compressed storage capacity at a transfer rate of up to 57.6Gbph. Through the use of a multiple language, Web-based, remote management system, maintenance, system monitoring and system commands can be conducted remotely. A built-in LCD panel allows the same functions to be done locally and an optional bar code reader is also available. The Tanberg DLTVS160 StorageLoader will be available mid-September through T Data.
