Teardown video of HP SureStore DLT 818 tape backup station

The HP SureStore E DLT Autoloader 818 is a cost-effective high-performance tape storage solution. This system comes equipped with a DLT8000 drive, which transfers data at up to 12 MB per second (compressed), allowing servers to be backed up or restored in a matter of hours. HP libraries feature automated operation through software to eliminate the possibility of missed backups. Simply schedule backups for a convenient time and let the HP DLT8000 library do the rest, using best-in-class storage management software to support unattended “lights-out” operation. HP DLT autoloaders are designed for simplicity, both for users and system integrators. They feature a front-panel display for diagnostics and status reporting, and they use removable six-slot cartridge magazines for quick, easy media loading. The autoloaders include proven HP mechanisms and HP-tested DLTtape media for high uptime levels and reliable operation. Choose either the standalone deskside configuration, or mount up to two libraries side-by-side in a 19-inch rack.
