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).
Simplified Operations

Simplified Operations

Tapes can be imported and exported individually using the mail slot or twelve at a time using one of four 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.
Simplified Operations

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

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 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 — ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.
Be Green With Tape

Be Green With Tape

When factoring in the features and benefits of tape storage — such as reliability, portability, encryption and the shelf life (30 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.
