M1800 Specifications


     For more information :


The new ATL M1800 is an attractive buy for budget-conscious tape library consumers looking for the next-step in capacity and performance.

Available with all of the same ATL M-Series tape drives and options, this library provides 42 DLTtapeTM or 50 LTOTM tape cartridge slots, and up to four tape drives delivering the backup capacity and drive performance you expect in larger libraries, but at a bargain price.

The ATL M1800 keeps with the ATL M-Series motto of "complete investment protection" by allowing you to increase your libraries' capacity as needed. With the ATL M1500, the ATL M1800, or the ATL M2500, you have a flexible tape library system that can change as your budget and needs change without requiring a "forklift upgrade" or an "offline" install. The ATL M1800 can be easily redeployed when backup requirements change that offer the user true investment protection.
