New backup server to begin testing
Our new Legato Networker server and LTO-3 tape library has been set up and has begun early testing!
The new server specs are: one Sun T1000 with 4GB of RAM and a fibre channel interface to connect it to four LTO-3 drives in a new Qualstar TLS-88264 tape library. This tape library has 131 data tapes in it with 400GB of native capacity each. In the future, this tape library can be expanded to a total of 264 tapes and eight LTO-3 or LTO-4 drives.
This new system will replace two existing and administratively-separate backup systems and AIT-based libraries operated by BSG and OIT.
