Imation tape libraries

Imation introduced 2U and 4U tape libraries using LTO technology.


L1200 LTO® 2U TAPE LIBRARY

When equipped with LTO-5 tape drives, the Imation L1200 LTO 2U Tape Library delivers the highest LTO storage capacity (up to 1.5 TB natively on each Imation LTO-5 tape cartridge, or up to 3.0 TB with 2:1 software compression) and data transfer rates (up to 140 MB/sec) to date; this gives a total capacity of up to 36 TB native (72 TB with 2:1 compression). This combination of performance and capacity enables SMBs to keep pace with growing demands for data storage while helping to shrink archive windows.

In addition to its 24 data cartridge slots (contained in two removable cartridge magazines), the Imation L1200 LTO 2U Tape Library includes a single mail slot to help support continuous library operation while importing and exporting media. A bar-code reader is also standard, supporting the library’s operation in sequential or random access mode.

And these comprehensive capabilities and features don’t come at the cost of complexity; the Imation L1200 LTO 2U Tape Library is designed for easy, intuitive installation and configuration, as well as more flexible operation. With Imation, your information works harder and rests easier.


L1400 LTO® 4U TAPE LIBRARY

When equipped with LTO-5 tape drives, the Imation L1400 LTO 4U Tape Library delivers the highest LTO storage capacity (up to 1.5 TB natively on each Imation LTO-5 tape cartridge, or up to 3.0 TB with 2:1 software compression) and data transfer rates (up to 140 MB/sec) to date; this gives a total capacity of up to 72 TB native (144 TB with 2:1 compression). This combination of performance and capacity enables SMBs to keep pace with growing demands for data storage while helping to shrink archive windows.

In addition to its 48 data cartridge slots (contained in four removable cartridge magazines), the Imation L1400 LTO 4U Tape Library includes a three-slot I/O station to help support continuous library operation while importing and exporting media. A bar-code reader is also standard, supporting the library’s operation in sequential or random access mode.

And these comprehensive capabilities and features don’t come at the cost of complexity; the Imation L1400 LTO 4U Tape Library is designed for easy, intuitive installation and configuration, as well as more flexible operation. With Imation, your information works harder and rests easier.
