StorageTek SL500 Tape Library

SL500(1) SL500

 

The StorageTek SL500 scales from 30 to 575 LTO slots (or 24 to 494 mixed media slots), with a maximum capacity of more than 460 TB of uncompressed data, providing more than 30% greater capacity than other libraries in its class.

If capacity is your most important issue, you can scale the StorageTek SL500 using Drive Expansion Modules (DEM) or Cartridge Expansion Modules (CEM), which give you the flexibility to scale using only cartridges.

In addition, Any Cartridge Any Slot technology lets you use the drive types that best meet your needs, including StorageTek LTO, SDLT, and DLT-S4 tape drives.
