Capacity on Demand Planning for future storage capacity today can help save your organization time and money when you take advantage of the capacity on demand feature. For example, the ML6030 Library is pre-configured with 87 cartridge slots enabled. When the need arises, additional cartridge slots can be activated in 46 slot increments via the software License Key, allowing for non-disruptive scalability to even greater capacity, up to an instantaneously available 225 tape cartridge slots providing 337TB of initial native capacity. As your enterprise grows, so does your library, each additional 9U Expansion Module is also License Key scalable in 46 slot increments, that will eventually support up to 409 slots in a 41U library configuration! Activating a new License Key code and increasing your capacity is a simple, straightforward process that does not require any extra hardware or re-initialization of the library.
The ML6000's intelligence proactively monitors the status of all components and operations in the library. Relational diagnostics maintains a history of events occurring in the library over time, and correlates them to provide failure prediction capabilities. The ML6000 will select, gather and analyse logs and provide proactive notification to your designated administrator of potential issues before an issue actually occurs. You can take advantage of the email notification feature to provide remote notification of events occurring in the backup environment. Finally, the integrated Data Path Verification Tool proactively checks the data-path to help ensure connectivity before running your backup, helping to dramatically reduce instances of failed jobs.
Versatile Management The integrated Operator Panel's touch screen is a simple and intuitive GUI interface that allows you one-touch access through menu items, and provides quick-glance information on the library's health. Set-up, installation, maintenance, partitioning and troubleshooting are all handled through Wizards that guide you through each process step-by-step in plain English. A full-featured, HTML-based remote management utility allows administrators to perform all library management functions from any remote location. The self-awareness and ease of management of the ML6000 PowerVault Library helps ensure that the safety of your back-up execution is always worry free.
Reliable TechnologyEffective data protection requires reliability. The entire PowerVault ML6000 stack is governed by a single, continuous robotic system, meaning fewer moving parts and less chance of failure, further helping to ensure your key files are safe and secure. WORM (Write Once Read Many) is integrated with the LTO-3, LTO-4 and LTO-5 drives and media to help prevent data from being overwritten or digitally altered. The ML6000 has a Redundant Power Supply designed to ensure that your storage is active and available, at all times.For additional security, Library Managed Encryption is available when configured with LTO-4 and LTO-5 drives.
