Overview
HP StorageWorks MSL6000 Tape Libraries provide centralized backup in a single automated device, freeing valuable IT resources
for more strategic work. These libraries are ideal for medium to large IT networks, with or without a storage area network (SAN),
experiencing uncertain data growth. The MSL6000 Tape Libraries offer best-in-class tape technology including the HP StorageWorks
Ultrium 960, SDLT600 and Ultrium 460 tape drives. This portfolio of tape libraries offers a scalable, flexible, and manageable
centralized tape backup solution that can grow with ever-changing backup and recovery needs, while reducing IT staff involvement.
The MSL6000 Tape Libraries will scale to larger configurations by enabling a single library to grow and change with capacity and
technology as needs require. Not only will the MSL6000 Tape Library scale within the family, but it can also be scaled with MSL5000
Tape Libraries using a pass-through mechanism, for up to 16 drives and 240 slots. Ultrium 960, SDLT600 and Ultrium 460 tape
drives are available as upgrades to currently installed MSL5000 and MSL6000 Tape Libraries. With the MSL controller-based
architecture, a direct-attach configuration can easily move to a SAN-based storage environment with only an interface card upgrade.
The MSL6000 Tape Libraries are easily managed through an intuitive GUI-control panel and integrated remote web management,
allowing simple management capabilities from any remote or on-site location.

    Multi-unit Scalability Multi-unit Scalability The MSL6000 Tape Library has the capability for multi-unit scalability; up to four 10U libraries or eight 5U libraries can be scaled together into a single library. For the MSL6030/6026, the first two modules are linked using the MSL Universal Pass-Through Mechanism base unit kit, which has a shuttle mechanism for tape movement between units.
  • Page 4 Data Rate Matching Data Rate Matching An exclusive feature of HP Ultrium tape drives, data rate matching allows the tape drive to adjust its transfer rate to the speed of the host dynamically and continuously. This feature, coupled with the Ultrium buffer management technology within the data path, ensures that the tape drive continues to stream data, reducing the need to rewind the tape back and forth to wait for the host.
