Data Protection

Automated Data Protection

Regular, disciplined backup is a vital part of a complete disaster recovery strategy. The PowerVault™ TL4000 is a powerful tape library that helps organizations automate their backup processes to reduce the need for manual intervention and the risk of human error. The PowerVault TL4000 uses optical cartridge location technology for precision cartridge handling and inventory, which helps improve the overall reliability of backups.
Support for your Dell iSCSI SAN

Support for Your Dell iSCSI SAN

To supplement the growth in Internet SCSI (iSCSI) storage area networks (SANs), Dell employs an iSCSI-to-SAS bridge card for the TL-series tape libraries (Dell™ PowerVault TL2000 and TL4000). This solution enables users to add in a tape backup target into an iSCSI Ethernet SAN with a typical transfer rate of ~50MB/s in most cases. Additionally, the iSCSI-to-SAS bridge card is fully compatible with Dell PowerVault M3000i and Dell EqualLogic™ PS iSCSI array series.
Simplified Operations

Simplified Operations

Tapes can be imported and exported individually using a mail slot or twelve at a time using one of two magazines. The library utilizes barcode-scanning technology to record the location of tape media, so you can be assured that your critical data is properly stored and ready in case disaster strikes.
Intuitive Management

Intuitive Management

An on-board, user-friendly LCD interface allows you to easily monitor, control, configure and service the library. While you are away, the tape library enables you to remotely administer all functions, including system status and logs, diagnostics and drive operations, as well as configuration and inventory management features.
Tape Versatility

Tape Versatility

The comparative low cost for tape — combined with its long history of proven reliability — helps ensure its continued use for both backup and archiving. The portability of tape enables it to be taken off-site and stored in a vault. In addition, LTO-4, LTO-5 and LTO-6 tape technology supports write-once, read-many (WORM) capability, which enables permanent data storage that cannot be overwritten — a requirement of many compliance regulations.

Big Capacity, Small Space

With its compact form factor, the PowerVault TL4000 packs an impressive amount of information in a small amount of space. Occupying only four units (4U) of rack space, the library can hold up to 48 tapes providing up to 120TB (with Ultrium LTO-6 2.5TB* tapes) of native capacity — ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.

LTO Performance

Ultrium Linear Tape-Open Performance

The PowerVault TL4000 supports Linear Tape-Open Ultrium 6 (LTO-6) drives — a high-speed tape technology that can natively back up an impressive 576GB of data per hour. LTO technology is based on a tape industry standard that specifies backward read-and-write compatibility with LTO-6 and LTO-5 generation media (n,n-1) and read compatibility with LTO-4 (n-2) media.
Be Green with Tape

Be Green With Tape

When factoring in the features and benefits of tape storage — such as reliability, portability, encryption LTO-4, LTO-5 and LTO-6 and the shelf life (over 20 years) of tape cartridges — it is the perfect solution for your long-term or short-term backup or archiving needs. In addition, when tape media is stored, it does not require energy until it needs to be accessed. By using zero energy when stored, tape is "naturally" Green.
