1 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 031 The Simply Reliable Enterprise Library System Pro Technology

2 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 032 Small Medium Business Small Enterprise Regional Data Centers Enterprise National Data Centers Large Enterprise Global Data Centers Multiple Departmental Servers Qualstar Market Coverage Expands Library Capacity XLS TLS AIT TLS SDLT TLS LTO TLS SAIT RLS AIT RLS SDLT RLS LTO RLS SAIT XLS XLS TB2 PB

3 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 033 XLS Library System Patent-pending COMPASS ARCHITECTURE TM Shorter Travel, Lower Power, Higher Reliability Very scalable drives, I/O ports, and slots High storage density: over 100 tapes per square foot X-Link TM : Single-view worldwide interface

4 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 034 XLS True Scalability Scaleable capacity Starts at 355 slots, scales to over 6,000 slots In cabinet capacity expansion options Balance tape drives and storage slots Very economical 1,075 slot MEM expansion module Scaleable performance Two sizes of base LRM Module available 8 logical library partitions standard Start at 4 drives Scales to 96 drives Up to 120 I/O slots Intermix SCSI and FC drives

5 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 035 XLS Building Blocks Mix and Match to Create the Right Solution LRM (Library Resource Module)MEM (Media Expansion Module) Standalone library Contains drives, I/O ports, storage slots, robotics, control, and power Acts as nucleus of larger systems Rotating carousel holds 1,075 cartridges Consumes less than 9 sq. ft. floor space Attaches to either side of an LRM

6 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 036 XLS Compass Architecture Very high density per square foot Low power consumption Simple expansion! LRM robot reaches into MEM- never leaves the LRM Access 2,800 tapes in 21 of horizontal robot travel System expands by alternating LRMs and MEMs LRM MEM

7 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 037 XLS LRM - Two Models Description StdMax Slots Drive Bays 15 Drives 120 I/O ports 14 I/O slots 1040 N+1 Power Opt- Description StdMax Slots Drive Bays 28 Drives 132 I/O ports 24 I/O slots 2040 N+1 Power Std Deep

8 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 038 XLS Configurations High storage density coupled with flexibility during growth Less linear movement to access large volumes of cartridges, over 2,800 cartridges can be accessed with an average 21 X axis motion Low Speed robotics motion profile is more reliable and requires less power and cooling Cartridge access performance does not degrade when expanding I need to expand my XLS library system My raw storage needs are outpacing my access needs, I will add another MEM I need to add more tape drives to increase my access capability, I will add another LRM 1 LRM, 1 MEM1 LRM, 2 MEMs2 LRMs, 1 MEM 32 drives, 1,550 slots32 drives, 2,625 slots64 drives, 2,025 slots = OR

9 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 039 LRM Features Linux based library controller Linux based library controller SCSI and FibreSCSI and Fibre 8 logical libraries8 logical libraries Contains all robotics Contains all robotics Touch screen operator control panel Touch screen operator control panel One to four I/O ports ( slots) One to four I/O ports ( slots) 34.8 Deep Deep

10 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0310 LRM Front Panel Front serviceable filtered air intake area Five LED status/activity indicators Four I/O port bays Each with 10 slot removable canister 15 Color TFT operator display with touch screen interface Two lockable operator access doors with windows

11 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0311 LRM Front View XY Robot with integrated bar code reader capable of 330 o of rotary motion and Z axis insertion Bar code reader on picker Tape drives are added in four drive per bay increments (each bay tier may be configured as SCSI or Fibre Channel)

12 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0312 Status LEDs At a glance operator information Five LEDs on front panel Attention Network activity Library activity (power on) Robot activity (movement) Fault

13 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0313 I/O Ports Up to 4 ports per LRM 10 slots per port 1 I/O port standard in I/O ports standard in Removable 10 slot magazine Software controlled latching/security

14 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0314 Expansion Door Slots Each door can hold 110 additional tape storage slots The can accommodate one additional door expansion The can accommodate two additional door expansions The door slots block the view into the interior of the library

15 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0315 Robot XYZ + rotational theta axis = Compass Architecture Short travel means low power and increased reliability Uses closed loop servo motors for precise positioning Bar code reader also used as absolute position sensor during mechanical calibration

16 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0316 LRM Module Rear View N+1 hot swap power system Drive bays with four drives per level. Drive bays may be exchanged with storage bays 19 auxiliary equipment rack (optional) 6U in form-factor or 8U extended. Linux based controller with four library interface slots Storage bays (30 tapes per bay)

17 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0317 Auxiliary Equipment Rack Optional for either or LRM 6U in form factor or 8U Equipment mounts on its side Unique latching scheme provides easy access to front and rear of equipment mounted in rack Independent AC power provided for equipment mounted in rack

18 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0318 Drive Bays Four LTO tape drives per drive bay has one drive bay standard, supports a maximum of five drive bays for a total of 20 tape drives has two drive bays standard, supports a maximum of eight drive bays for a total of 32 tape drives Any mix of SCSI or Fibre channel drives Each drive bay displaces 30 tape storage slots

19 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0319 Drive Carriers XLS drive carriers slide into the back of the drive bay No tools are required to remove/exchange individual drives Each drive bay location is individually controlled, drives may be brought offline independently Blank carriers are used to block off empty drive positions, interlock prevents robot motion with empty drive bay positions Rear view of XLS LRM Drive Carriers Blank Carrier Drive Carrier

20 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0320 Drive Carrier Indicators Each carrier has an individual drive status LED to easily identify the failed drive The LED indicates if the drive is online/offline Fibre drives have additional Link and Activity indicators Drive Status LED

21 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0321 Library Controller Linux core running custom XLS control and X-Link interface software Has four slots reserved for library interfaces Dual-port HBAs available in either 2xSCSI or 2xFibre Up to eight independent logical library partitions Uses journaling file system combined with software heart beat to provide comprehensive error recovery

22 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0322 Data-Guard Feature Built into every XLS Insures orderly library shutdown in event of accidental power loss Protects media in transition from damage Assures problem free restarts when power is restored

23 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0323 Application Flexibility 8 partitions connect to the host via SCSI or Fibre Individual Fibre ports can also support medium changer addressing via LUN number allowing for multiple control Host 3 16 drives 1240 cartridges Fibre Attached Host 2 4 drives 80 cartridges Fibre Attached Host 1 12 drives 1300 cartridges SCSI Attached

24 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0324 N+1 Power System Distributed power bus using hot swap supplies Some configurations can be powered off of a single 110 VAC outlet Simply add one additional supply to achieve N+1 protection (N+1 standard on LRM)

25 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0325 Memory Expansion Module cartridges = 430 TB (Native LTO 3) One or two per LRM Efficient carousel design Easy field upgrade Dual access doors for bulk load/servicing Power, control and cartridge handling supplied by LRM(s) Only 8.4 square feet

26 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0326 X-Link Management Interface Single-view interface: local and remote users see the same interface Browser based access Multiple level password protection and administration capability established for each logical library Ability to create custom access control for individual users/groups Integrated online help system

27 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0327 X-Link Management Interface (contd) Online system manuals Wizards to aid initial set-up and common operations Software and firmware revision management Integrated event logging and diagnostics Ability to back user configuration for restore of user environment, even with a system controller change or failure

28 XLS PRESENTATION Rev 0328 X-Link: View Hardware Current status of hardware Base unit Expansion unit Tape drives Drill down to specific components Drive status, serial number, firmware level, etc.
