1 Introducing the TLS Series Libraries

2 Qualstar TLS Library Systems  Full range of tape libraries –AIT –SAIT –SDLT –LTO  Intra-family scalability  Proven robotics design  Advanced features  Flexible options  Full range of tape libraries –AIT –SAIT –SDLT –LTO  Intra-family scalability  Proven robotics design  Advanced features  Flexible options

3 The TLS Library System Menu driven control panel with LCD display I/O port Drives in removable carrier assembly Key lock door-bulk load/unload/drive servicing Large window allows observation Cooling air filter intake Universal 120/220 VAC connection Drives access hatch (connections) Flexible interface cabling options

4 Qualstar Robotic Design The cornerstone of a Simply Reliable library  Rated for >1 Million MEBF’s  Very high resolution positioning  No maintenance required  Qualstar designed and built brushless motors  Proven design used in all Qualstar libraries, improved and perfected over 8 years of manufacturing  Rated for >1 Million MEBF’s  Very high resolution positioning  No maintenance required  Qualstar designed and built brushless motors  Proven design used in all Qualstar libraries, improved and perfected over 8 years of manufacturing Oversize linear bearings Fixed lead screw with aerospace low friction coating Patented “Rotating Nut” servo motor design

5 Qualstar Robot The cornerstone of a Simply Reliable library  Lead screws used for both vertical robot movement in Y axis and in/out movement in Z axis (cartridge insertion/removal from drives/magazines)  Rotating carousel indexes removable magazines in front of robot  Simple controlled motion in each axis contributes to high mechanical reliability  Lead screws used for both vertical robot movement in Y axis and in/out movement in Z axis (cartridge insertion/removal from drives/magazines)  Rotating carousel indexes removable magazines in front of robot  Simple controlled motion in each axis contributes to high mechanical reliability Carousel Y axis Z axis

6 Qualstar Standard Features Positive pressure filtered air cooling eliminates airborne contaminants Inventory Sentry prevents time consuming re- inventories VIOP allows the user to configure Import/Export resources to match requirements Logical Library allows the user to partition the library into separate logical units each assigned its own set of library resources

7 VIOP Means More Control  Standard in all TLS and RLS libraries  Allows reassignment of any range of media storage slots to the I/O port function  Boundaries can be set at magazine or slot increments  Supports bulk load/unload and “group backup” strategies  Standard in all TLS and RLS libraries  Allows reassignment of any range of media storage slots to the I/O port function  Boundaries can be set at magazine or slot increments  Supports bulk load/unload and “group backup” strategies A B C D E F I/O A B C D E F I/O Without VIOP I/O port resources are fixed With VIOP I/O port resources are variable

8 Logical Library  Standard feature in all models of Qualstar libraries allowing the Library to be partitioned into multiple smaller “logical libraries”  Allows support of concurrent hosts (I/O port must be dedicated to one only)  The same slots and drives cannot be shared between hosts in logical mode (no overlap of resources)  Standard feature in all models of Qualstar libraries allowing the Library to be partitioned into multiple smaller “logical libraries”  Allows support of concurrent hosts (I/O port must be dedicated to one only)  The same slots and drives cannot be shared between hosts in logical mode (no overlap of resources) With Logical Library A B C D E F Without Logical Library Single Host Tape Drives Media Storage Slots A B C D E F Multiple Hosts (Max 4) Tape Drives Media Storage Slots Logical library The software on Each host is configured For the same medium Changer ID, the tape Drive ID’s are different For each host Robot Library Control Host 1 Drives A-F Slots 1-28 Robot Host 1 Drives A-C Slots 1-14 Library Control Host 2 Drive D Slots Host 3 Drives E-F Slots 18-28
