1 Overview

The tape library provides a compact, high-capacity, low-cost solution for simple, unattended data
backup. This unique design houses up to 12 tape cartridges for each U of height, with easy
access to tape cartridges via removable magazines and a mailslot. Each magazine can hold up
to 12 tape cartridges. The library is customer expandable with exchangeable LTO Ultrium
full-height and half height tape drives. To see the tape drives currently available, see the MSL
QuickSpecs at:
The library is compatible with most operating systems. However, it requires either direct support
from the operating system or a compatible backup application to take advantage of its many
features. To verify compatibility, see the Data Agile BURA Compatibility Matrix at:
