The New Reliability Requirements: Tape Libraries

White Paper Overview (PDF)

Spectra tape libraries extend the notion of reliability beyond an expected feature set. Users can expect the highest-end tape libraries to provide at least an option of dual robotics, dual power, call-home features, and some path redundancy. Spectra tape libraries have new features that are very important to reliable library/tape automation: a method of checking library health, drive health, media health, the integrity of data stored on tape, and methods to increase availability through parts on-site.
