Nov 19, 2004, Yorktown, Virginia – Cybernetics has announced the immediate availability of affordable new ultra slim LTO-2 tape libraries. Each tape library supports eight tapes for a capacity of up to 4.8 TB in a small, compact tape library that is just 3.5" high, requiring just 2U vertical space in a standard 19" equipment rack.
The Ultrium tape format is extremely popular for its excellent performance and reliability. And now, Cybernetics' new CY-TLL-0108 tape library multiplies the exceptional capacity benefits of LTO-2 Ultrium by a factor of eight. And with a blazing fast transfer rate of 108 to 216 GB per hour, Cybernetics' CY-TLL-0108 can easily shrink the burgeoning backup window down to size. The new tape library is available with all of Cybernetics' innovative features. As part of an iSAN® solution, the CY-TLL-0108 becomes a network attached tape backup appliance, with shared access for multiple hosts across LAN, WAN, or MAN, without the distance and location limitations of direct attached storage. The iTape feature makes it possible to establish remote, offsite archival to tape. The HSTC™ is a powerful and flexible D2D2T solution to enhance the speed and security of disk-based backup with tape virtualization and automated archive to removable tape.
According to a spokesman for Cybernetics, "These incredibly compact little tape libraries are very big on value. Improving capacity eight-fold costs less than the price of a single additional tape drive. With this library, the S MB can leverage a single tape drive to perform automated, unattended backup for days or weeks at a time."
