Dell PowerVault 160T Tape Library

Technical Support, Maintenance and Repair Services

Housed within a standard 19-inch footprint, the Dell PowerVault 160T Tape Library fits in line with Dell racks to help you make the most of storage resources. The Dell 160T is comprised of a Control Module that can house up to 264 tape cartridges and up to 12 Ultrium 2 Linear Tape Open (LTO-2) drives. An Expansion Module allows an additional 360 pieces of tape media and up to twelve more tape drives. Up to three Expansion Modules can be added to a single Control Module, allowing a total of 48 tape drives and 1,344 tapes. Native partitioning allows multiple tape drives and slots to be combined to create up to four virtual tape libraries. Configured with Fibre Channel tape drives, the Dell PowerVault 160T Tape Library allows tape drives to be directly connected to a Fibre Channel switch.

The PowerVault 160T includes reliability features such as redundant power supplies to keep the library operating at full performance even if one power supply fails. A Library Management Console provides a single view of all components, such as robotics, drives and network connectivity. It can be operated both locally and remotely through a simple graphical user interface and it communicates with Dell/EMC® VisualSAN® Management software.
