StorageTek T10000B Tape Drive

The T10000B Tape Drive combines the highest native data capacity on tape with the highest native throughput of 120 MB per second. It is able to reuse existing StorageTek T10000 media and simplify deployment with broad compatibility with StorageTek libraries and third party applications. Limit your exposure to potentially costly litigation while you support regulatory and compliance policies. Pair the StorageTek T10000B tape drive with the StorageTek L8500 or SL3000 modular library system to accelerate data consolidation efforts. As data center storage needs increase, you manage growth cost effectively when you combine the highest tape capacity on the market with media reusability and ecoefficiencies.

The StorageTek T10000B Tape Drive delivers a potent combination: native capacity of 1 terabyte and performance of 120 MB/sec. You can double capacity in the same footprint while you simplify media management because you manage ewer tapes. Tape-based storage also minimizes power, cooling, and acquisition cost. Compared to disk, tape is much more energy efficient. As a key component of eco-efficient data centers, tape excels in applications as diverse as production, data management, backup/restore, disaster recovery, and archive.

Encryption The cryptoready StorageTek T10000B tape drive works in conjunction with the Sun
Crypto Key Management System (KMS). The KMS delivers a simple, secure,
centralized solution for managing the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data written by
the StorageTek T10000B tape drive. Developed on open security standards, the KMS
consists of the Key Management Appliance, a security-hardened Sun Fire x2100 M2
rackmounted server, and the KMS Manager graphical user interface (GUI) that is
executed on a workstation. The KMS runs without regard to application, operating
platform, or primary storage device. It complies with Federal Information Processing
Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification. Requirements and specifications may change, so
