Exabyte announces 30 Terabyte LTO Library

A new LTO automation product, the Magnum20 LTO Tape Library, is now available from Exabyte Corp.

The Magnum20 packs up to eight IBM Corp. LTO tape drives and 148 Exabyte LTO cartridges into a 20u rackmount space. Special features and options include eight-way partitioning, remote management and direct Fibre Channel attachment. It has a manufacturers suggested retail price of US$16,499; the Magnum20 library delivers a cost per terabyte of less than $550, according to Tom Ward, president and CEO of Exabyte.

A library partitioning feature lets you create as many as eight mini-libraries within a single Magnum20. You can configure and expand storage capacity from 100GB to 29.6TB and performance from 54GB per hour to 864GB per hour without rearranging rack space and components or installing additional library modules.

Redundant power supplies, IBM LTO tape drives, and Magnum20 interface cards are installable by the user, and provide simultaneous support for multiple servers in a mixed SCSI and Fibre Channel environment.
