Product Description

HPE MSL4048 0-Drive Tape Library

The HPE StorageWorks MSL4048 Tape Library will meet a broad range of demanding data storage needs including unattended backup, archive and disaster recovery for small to medium businesses, workgroups, or remote offices. The HPE MSL4048 Tape Library offers up to 76.8TB of compressed storage capacity in only a 4U form factor.

The MSL4048 enables you to easily manage your media both in and out of the library with a standard bar code reader, a configurable three-slot mail slot and four 12-slot removable magazines. As your data protection needs increase, simply add additional performance or capacity to your MSL4048 Tape Library with tool-free drive upgrade kits. All MSL4048 Tape Library units arrive rack-ready for quick installation in a standard 19" rack, but can be converted into a tabletop configuration for use outside of a rack. With unique HPE web-based remote management, the MSL4048 is easily managed from across the room, or across the globe, reducing dependencies on your IT staff.
