StorageTel SL500 in HP SAN

StorageTel SL500 in HP SAN

I am currently investigating purchasing a Storagetek SL500 tape library that will be fibre attached to my HP (OEM Brocade switches) SAN.

Is there a HP compatability matrix that I can refer to, to see if this is supported?

This is the OmniBack matrix. but if it's support with omniback on on the system you have, then it is supported on the system.

You should be fine with this configuration.

Why not to use the HP branded one, with more management and features, and sure compatibility and support ;)

The SL500 library is half of the price of the similar HP library.
