Exabyte Ships New Tape Library Family

Exabyte Corp. has begun shipping its M2 automated tape library line. The M2 line consists of the EZ17 autoloader, X80 library, and X200 library. The M2 libraries combine M2's half-high form factor and high transfer rate with Exabyte's automation expertise.

The EZ17 autoloader offers seven-day, unattended backup capability with 108 GB/hour (43.2 GB/hour uncompressed) transfer rate. The Exabyte 220 automated library is a multi-drive midrange tape library that offers 3 TB (1.2 TB uncompressed) capacity and 216 GB/hour (86.4 GB/hour uncompressed) transfer rate. The Exabyte SAN-ready X80 automated library offers 12 TB (4.8 TB uncompressed) capacity and 864 GB/hour (345.6 GB/hour uncompressed) transfer rate. The Exabyte SAN-ready X200 automated library offers 30 TB (12 TB uncompressed) of capacity and 1 TB/hour (400 GB/hour uncompressed).

The X80 and X200 M2 libraries come with Web-enabled, Java-based out-of-band management capabilities. These features, along with Fibre Channel options, enable the SAN-ready tape libraries to work with independent software vendor (ISV) applications for providing remote manageability in a network-attached environment for storage area networks (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS) architectures.
