NEC T30A Tape Library

The T60A tape library is a midrange data solution, offering both high data storage capacity and highly reliable robotics in a compact form factor. The T30A may be equipped with either one or two LTO Ultrium 6 tape drives and two removable magazines, and can accommodate up to a total of 30 tape cartridges.

Using LTO Ultrium 6 tape cartridges, this equates to 75 TB of native storage capacity(187.5 TB compressed).

The T30A is available in 2 U rack-mountable models. It also includes a remote management system to facilitate offsite data management.

NEC has over forty years of experience developing and manufacturing a wide range of tape products for our mainframe systems. Based upon our extensive background in magnetic tape, the T30A is a highly reliable subsystem which can address your most unique and mission critical requirements.
