Overview

1

This chapter provides an overview of the L25 and L100 libraries and their features.

Library Capacity

L25 Library

The L25 library can contain up to two tape drives and up to 21

 

DLT/SDLT cartridges or 25 LTO cartridges. The cartridges are

 

stored in two independently removable cartridge magazines and

 

one fixed cartridge slot.

 

The L100 library can contain:

L100 Library

 

• Up to five tape drives and up to 84 DLT/SDLT cartridges or

 

100 LTO cartridges

 

• Six tape drives and up to 73 DLT/SDLT cartridges or 87 LTO

 

cartridges

Sun StorEdge™ L25 Tape Library and Sun StorEdge™ L100 Tape Library User’s Guide

Chapter 1 Overview

SCSI Configuration

The cartridges are stored in up to eight independently removable cartridge magazines and up to four fixed cartridge slots.

SCSI Configuration

The L25 and L100 library modules come configured for HVD SCSI. One SCSI bus is provided for the library robotics and for each tape drive installed. These SCSI buses are SCSI-2fast/wide (8/16 bit).

Library Scalability

The L25 and L100 library modules can be used as stand-alonelibraries, or can be combined with other L25 and L100 library modules and a StackLink mechanism in a standard19-inchrack to form a larger library system (called a multiple library stack). The multiple library stack appears as a single large capacity library to the host.

The StackLink mechanism connects the library modules in the multiple library stack and transports cartridges from module to module. Each tape drive has access to all the tape cartridges in the stack.

Once the StackLink mechanism is installed in the rack, you can add library modules simply by sliding them into place and making the necessary electrical connections.

Table 1 lists the capacities of all the sizes of multiple library stack you can create using L25 library modules.Table 2 lists the capacities of all the sizes of multiple library stack you can create using L100 library modules. You can obtain different capacities by combining L25 and L100 library modules in a multiple library stack.
