Compatibility of HP MSL2024

The AK379A HP Tape Library is compatible with the HP MSL2024 tape library. The MSL2024 is a tape library that provides automated data backup and archiving solutions. It offers high-capacity storage and easy scalability, making it a popular choice for organizations with large amounts of data to store.

When the AK379A is used in combination with the HP MSL2024, it can provide additional storage capacity and flexibility. The AK379A can be used as an expansion unit for the MSL2024, allowing organizations to easily expand their storage capacity as their data storage needs grow. Additionally, the AK379A can be used as a secondary storage location for the MSL2024, providing an additional layer of data protection and redundancy.

The compatibility between the two libraries allows for easy integration and management of the tape libraries, as they can be managed through a single management interface. This can help to reduce complexity and improve efficiency in data storage and archiving operations.

The combination of AK379A and MSL2024 can also provide cost-effective long-term storage options, as tape storage is generally less expensive than other storage media such as hard drives or cloud storage, especially for archival data.

Number of Drives and Slots

The AK379A HP Tape Library comes with 0 drives and 24 slots.

A tape drive is a device that reads and writes data to and from tape media. In this case, the AK379A does not come with any tape drives, meaning that you will need to purchase and install them separately.

Slots, on the other hand, refer to the places where the tapes are inserted and stored within the tape library. The AK379A has 24 slots, which means it can hold up to 24 tapes at a time. This allows for a large capacity and flexibility in terms of data storage and archiving.

Having 0 drives and 24 slots means that AK379A is a tape library without tape drive, it is called as a "Library without drive" or "Library-only" which can be used in combination with other tape library which has tape drive, this can be beneficial in case of tape drive failure or if you have multiple locations where you want to store your tapes.

LTO Tape Technology

The AK379A HP Tape Library uses Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology to provide high-capacity data storage and reliable data protection. LTO is a widely-used tape format that offers large storage capacities and fast data transfer rates, making it an ideal solution for long-term archiving and backup.

The AK379A is compatible with LTO Ultrium tapes, which are the latest generation of LTO technology. LTO Ultrium tapes can store up to 15TB of uncompressed data per tape and have a data transfer rate of up to 750MB/s. This means that the AK379A can store up to 72TB of data in total, when 24 slots are used.

LTO Ultrium tapes also have a long lifespan, with a 30-year archival life and a 15-year data retention life, which means that organizations can store their data on these tapes for long periods of time without worrying about data loss or degradation.

LTO Ultrium tapes also have built-in data encryption and hardware-based data compression which makes it more suitable for long-term data storage and archiving. This feature ensures that the data stored on the tapes is secure and protected from unauthorized access and data loss.
