10 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 10 Manageability Features Overview Quantum iLayer/Vision iLayer used on Quantum’s tape libraries. Only manages one library at a time. Cannot display all Quantum libraries from a single view. Vision is used for monitoring, reporting & analytics of Quantum’s Scalar Tape Libraries. Features: Quantum Vision is available via web and mobile devices iLayer and Vision function independently. Can add one library at a time Alerts set up based on customer defined rules (not entire library system) HP Command View for Tape Libraries Integrated Manageability tools CVTL for managing entire portfolio of StoreEver Tape Libraries from a single pane of glass. TapeAssure for monitoring, reporting and analytics of tape libraries and is tightly integrated with CVTL. Features: CVTL/TapeAssure available via web CVTL & TapeAssure are integrated for single window view of entire library system. Simple interface for adding multiple libraries TapeAssure will provide alerts for the entire library system TapeAssure is supported across the HP StoreEver portfolio managing HP standalone drives, autoloaders, and tape libraries.

11 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 11 Quantum: Vision Analytics Software Benefits Runs on Linux or Windows Supports Scalar tape libraries and DXi disk-based backup devices Vision has a defined alert mechanism Rules are defined per library Generates & delivers scheduled reports Mobile Access / LDAP authentication supported Deficiencies: Basic functionality is licensed Results derived from standard drive notifications such as Tape Alerts rather than in depth analysis of low level drive performance metrics Customized graphs on only a few parameters System Login to users based on group access privilege Quantum Vision software

12 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 12 In Depth Analysis The HP in depth analysis is built from knowledge generated during the design, development, and testing of HP tape drives. HP uses internal parameters that are only accessible to the HP drive development team for better analytics. This is far superior to any analysis that can be done using only externally visible parameters. Event based data gathering TapeAssure Advanced is better at providing flexibility for gathering system events Quantum’s Vision predefined frequency is inversely proportional to the number of devices being monitored & users TapeAssure Advanced provides an exhaustive list of information on the tape drive’s health, performance and utilization Quantum Vision provides very limited information: drive location, serial number & status only. Health & Life Graphs TapeAssure Advanced provides built in monitoring of tape library, drive and media wear for estimating remaining life (think - gas gauge) TapeAssure Advanced provides health graphs from consolidated data on tape library/tape drive/media parameters Quantum Vision doesn’t provide this level of data Performance Advisor Graphs TapeAssure provides compound analysis. TAA is recording data from every operation in a local database then comparing the historical data to the most recent operation to differentiate between transient conditions. By detecting issues that are building over time, TAA can provide the administrator what is needed to address issues not available in any other single form of measurement. TapeAssure Advanced provides a consolidated view of performance and utilization and plots data indicating both high and low performance and utilization information. Quantum Vision doesn’t provide this level of data HP StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced Beats the competition

Flexible - License 100 cartridges at a time. Allows user to scan licensed cartridges at central data center or in a library located at a remote site. Validates data quality to ensure a successful read Receive proactive notification of questionable media in the archive. Monitors cartridge health over the life of the data. Know that the data is high quality and only migrate if issues are detected Overview: Supported on HP ESL G3 Tape Libraries One partition must be created specifically for Data Verification & can be created with CVTL or with the ESL G3 Partitioning License. At least one dedicated ESL G3 LTO-6 or LTO-5 tape drive must be assigned to the Data Verification partition for scanning Once media has been placed into the Data Verification partition, scanning will begin without interruption to host application Know when media was last scanned Know what media is licensed by barcode for verification Know results of the media scan

19 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 19 Quantum: Extended Data Lifecycle Management (EDLM) Benefits & Deficiencies Benefits: Complementary to Advanced Reporting. Supports scanning of inactive cartridges Checks completed in a library managed partition No impacts to operations - Managed completely in background Policies automate process Supports LTO-2 thru LTO-5 media Can automatically clone bad media, but only if using StorNext Software. Deficiencies: Requires a unique, higher cost drive and that is duplicated for every drive desired for EDLM. Customer is purchasing a bundle including the specific drive, the partition license and an I/O blade Validates that the data can be read but does not perform deep inspection to determine the actual quality of the data
