Re: tape library

Hi Shiv,

you are a real power-poster!

There is a wide range of libraries, so the question can't be answered with: it's model AxxxxA.

Current tape library families are MSL, ESL, ESL-e and EML-e.

Re: tape library

Shiv,

See www.hp.com/go/storagge for all kind of libraries.

The sizing depends on your needs of course. The most common used is the MSL6030 or 6060 with either Ultrium-2 or Ultrium-3 drives.

best regards,
Kurt
