Re: tape library

Fibre Channel - requires a SAN-switch at the back of the c7000. An MSL2024 fibre channel. fc-cable and SFPs. You will also need a fibre channel mezzanine HBA in the c-class blade server(s).

Or look in the quickspecs:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13258_div/13258_div.html

"HP BladeSystem c-Class customers who have a c3000 or c7000 blade enclosure but don't have fibre infrastructure have the option to connect an MSL SAS Tape Library to the enclosure utilizing a PCI Expansion Blade. Configuration requires an HP SC44Ge HBA (416096-B21) installed inside the PCI Expansion Blade which resides next to the partner server blade (backup server) in the blade enclosure."
