Model Details

The RLS-8000 Series delivers Qualstar's Simply Reliable Automated Tape Library technology to users requiring rackmountable solutions.

The RLS-8000 Series supports LTO cartridge tape formats in compact 5U-high modules. Offering superior performance and value, the RLS-Series Tape Library family includes eight models yielding capacities over 66 terabytes (native). Using typical data compression ratios, capacity can exceed 132 terabytes.

Individual models house up to four drives. Data transfer rates can exceed 4 terabytes per hour. Each drive is on a self-connecting mount that eliminates cable handling, the drives easily slide in or out.

High Availability plus Q-Link
RLS-8000 Series High Availability options include hot-swappable redundant power supplies, true hot-swappable drives, and Q-Link, the web browser based remote library manager. Q-Link allows any RLS-Series library to be configured, monitored, diagnosed and managed from anywhere in the world. Using Q-Link, companies can deploy enterprise-class data protection without increasing staffs or degrading data security. Even firmware updates can be implemented remotely.

Capacity on Demand
Five RLS-8000 models feature Capacity on Demand and offer an unbeatable combination of low cost and easy capacity upgrades when needed. Starting with twelve data slots, up to three or four, 8-slot expansion modules can be installed. A simple software key and a pair of
magazines is all it takes to add capacity.

Fibre Channel, SAS and LVD Drives Supported
The RLS-8000 Series supports LTO 5 SAS and Fibre Channel drives, and LTO 4 LVD and Fibre Channel drives. See the Specifications tab for details about which RLS models support individual drive types.

RLS Models House Up To Four Drives
RLS-8444 and 8404 models house up to four LTO 5 SAS or FC drives, doubling the number of target devices capable of simultaneous operation. Data transfer rates can exceed 4 terabytes per hour using LTO 5 drives.

Reliable, Intelligent Robotics
The RLS-8000 Series unique robotic mechanism is Simply Reliable by design. Leadscrew-based robotics using brushless DC motors and closed-loop servo control systems provide precise positioning and flawless media handling for years of dependable operation. All FRUs, options and tape drives are auto-discovering, and all electrical and mechanical adjustments have been completely eliminated by sophisticated, adaptive 'smart' logic design.

Easy Operation
An intuitive menu-driven control system provides easy-to-use installation, configuration, and operational information via the onboard LCD panel. Critical operating functions are displayed and an audible alarm signals conditions requiring immediate action. All of the information, functions and controls built into the front panel display are replicated in Q-Link, the powerful, browser-based remote library manager. Tapes are housed in convenient magazines that simply snap in and out of the library. Removing and organizing tapes for off-site storage has never been easier.

Advanced Cartridge Management and Security
VIOP, a unique variable I/O port design, allows users to determine how many slots to commit to importing and exporting tapes. Our exclusive 'Inventory Sentry' senses whether the tapes or magazines have actually been removed when the door is opened. If they haven't, operation is resumed without causing a time consuming re-inventory.

Logical Library
Logical Library partioning is built into every RLS-8000 Series library. It allows up to four servers to share a single library, even if each server is running a separate application. Systems that you couldn't afford to upgrade can now be protected automatically.
