The PowerVault™ TL2000 tape library offers simple and affordable tape automation for organisations whose data-protection needs have outgrown autoloader technology.

- 2U solution that can be rack mounted or easily converted into a desktop solution

- Library-managed encryption (optional with LTO4 only)
Automated Data ProtectionRegular, disciplined backup is a vital part of a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy. The PowerVault™ TL2000 is a powerful tape library that helps organisations automate their backup processes to reduce the need for manual intervention and the risk of human error. The PowerVault™ TL2000 uses the optical cartridge location technology for precision cartridge handling and inventory, which helps improve the overall reliability of backups.
Support for your Dell iSCSI SANTo supplement the growth in iSCSI SANs, Dell has introduced an iSCSI-to-SAS bridge card for the TL-series tape libraries (Dell PowerVault TL2000 & TL4000). This solution allows users to directly attach a tape backup target to an iSCSI 1Gb Ethernet SAN utilizing little to no degradation in transfer speed, 90 MB/s in most cases. Additionally, the iSCSI - to- SAS bridge card is fully compatible with Dell PowerVault M3000i and Dell EquaLogic PS iSCSI array series.
Simplified OperationsTapes can be imported and exported individually via a mail-slot or twelve-at-a-time using one of two magazines. The library utilises 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 ManagementAn 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 VersatilityThe 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 allows it to be taken off-site and stored in a vault. In addition, LTO-5, LTO-4 and LTO-3 tape technology supports WORM (Write-Once-Read-Many) capability which allows permanent data storage that cannot be overwritten to help meet compliance regulations.
Big Capacity—Small SpaceWith its ultra-compact form-factor, the PowerVault TL2000 packs an impressive amount of information in a small amount of space. Occupying only two units (2U) of rack space, the library can hold up to 24 tapes providing up to 36TB( with Ultrium LTO-5 1.5TB tapes) of native capacity—ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.
Ultrium LTO PerformanceThe PowerVault TL2000 supports Ultrium LTO-5 drives—a high-speed tape technology that can natively back up an impressive 504GB of data per hour. LTO technology is based on a tape industry standard that specifies backward read-and-write compatibility with LTO-5 & LTO-4 generation media(n,n-1) and read compatibility with LTO-3(n-2) media.
