Oracle has announced high availability and capacity enhancements to its StorageTek tape libraries and drives.
New features of the StorageTek SL8500 Modular Library System include an increase in scalable capacity from 70,000 to 100,000 tape slots and redundant electronics to help customers manage growth, increase availability and reduce risk.
Oracle’s StorageTek LTO-5 tape drives, with 1.5 TB of native capacity, are now available, and supported, on StorageTek tape libraries. The StorageTek LTO-5 drive coupled with the StorageTek SL8500 Modular Library System means Oracle offers up to 150 petabytes of native storage capacity managed in a single tape library.
StorageTek tape libraries are designed to help customers with heterogeneous data protection, consolidation and long-term data preservation.
“Over the past 40 years, Oracle StorageTek tape and library solutions have incorporated innovative technology to improve scalability, performance and reliability while continuing to lower the total cost of ownership,” says Jim Cates, vice president, Tape Development, Oracle. “With today’s announcement, large tape users now have the capacity to accommodate the explosion of data in their organizations.”
