The MSL Libraries offer a broad choice of storage capacity and technology including LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 Ultrium tape drives. Web-based remote management makes the MSL Libraries easily managed from across the
room or across the globe, eliminating the need for remote office IT staff. Quickly and simply manage the tape media both in and out of the library with the standard bar code reader, configurable mail slots, and multiple 12-slot removable magazines. MSL library investment
