Why LIB162?
AIT tape drives have proven incredibly popular with
users, with more than 650,000 drives shipped since the
first release in 1996. These drives underpin the security
of IT systems around the world.
Optimum Rack System
Many offices that are packed with proliferating PCs can
be streamlined by introducing the rack-mountable AIT
tape library LIB162.
The compact AIT format frees up office space with its
high-density data storage and offers great investment
returns as the storage volume increases.
There is a growing demand for efficient stacking of
servers, storage, and network equipment in 19 inch
racks to reduce TCO by maximising system
expandability, use of space, and ease of maintenance.
Simple Operation from Web Browser or Front Panel
System set-up and monitoring can be carried out easily
from a web browser on a client PC, or from the front
panel. The tape cartridge is controlled at high speed
with supreme reliability thanks to the R-MIC reader
installed by default in the AIT-4 tape drives, facilitating
recovery in the event of a system crash.
The tape drive can be hot-swapped from the front
The LIB162 comes equipped with a hot swap function,
which enables the built-in tape drive to be installed and
removed without stopping the system, thus realising
high availability as the tape drive can be replaced while
the power to the server remains on.
The tape drive can be replaced easily from the front
without having to go around to the back of the device,
facilitating upgrading for maintenance or system expansion.
