The all new Richmond range of Tape libraries from M5 Data with Ultra-D technology sets exceptional levels of performance and capacity in the mid range tape library (50 to 200 cartridges) market.
The richmond library concept consits of base libaries with a ranges of expansion modules, including a 5U Capacity Module (CM) to add up to 64 cartridges.
A 5U performace Module (PM) adding both cartridges and tape drives, also an Additional Slot Module (ASM) which enables tape drives to be substituted for extra storage slots.
This range of modules enables M5 Data to offer the most versatile tape library technology on the market that can be tailored to meet your exact needs.
- The Product Range -
The R6 is the foundation building block of the M5 data Richmond data library range. Despite its small physical size the R6 packs up to 64 LTO-3 tape cartridges into just 6U of rack space, that's over 50TB of compressed data. This astonishing data density is achieved using innovative third generation packaging and robotics technology.
The R6 is a "no nonsense" library providing an easy to use, high performance, affordable data storage solution.
The M5 data Richmond R10 is the mid-range stepping stone to enterprise class storage densities. Targeted at mid-sized to large companies that need in excess of 50TB of data storage in the minimum rack space.
The R10 requires just 10U of rack space yet it can store up to 120 LTO-3 cartridges, that's over 90 TB of compressed data. This astonishing data density is achieved using innovative, third generation packaging and robotics technology.
The Richmond R11 has been designed to meet the archive needs of growing organisations. This flexible middle range product can be equipped with up to 3 LTO drives and 129 cartridges in an amazing 11U of rack space. That's over 50TB of uncompressed data (using LTO-3). The library can be installed with 64 slots on line initially, and 64 more slots are available to be enabled by a software key. True capacity on demand. The third generation robotics delivers fast and accurate tape access without the need for any pass through port complications. One robot works for both the 64 and 128 slot capacities. The R11 combines easily with the various data management software products currently used in organisations. It also comes complete with powerful web based management and support tools enabling administrators, users and engineers to install, manage and support the R11 if this is required.
The R15 is the largest library in the M5 data Richmond range. Targeted at mid-sized to large companies that need in excess of 100 TB of data storage in the minimum rack space.
The R15 requires just 15U of rack space yet it can store up to 184 LTO-3 tape cartridges, that's almost 200 TB of compressed data. This astonishing data density is achieved using innovative, third generation packaging and robotics technology.
