Memorex Telex NV’s Peripherals Group in Milpitas, California has made good on its promise to offer a version of its 5100 Automated Tape Library for IBM Corp AS/400 9406 processors, and claims that it is the first such library in the AS/400 market. The 5100 Automated Tape Library is designed to provide complete half-inch cartridge tape automation; cartridges are housed in the robotic unit and accessed via software control in an average of nine seconds. It consists of a 315-cartridge carousel, robotics, two 3490 equivalent tape transports and library management control software to automate the data management support. It offers from 63Gb to 283Gb of unattended capacity, and up to 756Gb with the 36-track upgrade and ECart support, using the Memorex Telex 5450 cartridge tape drive and controller. It is out now, but no price was given. Memorex promises to offer its higher capacity libraries to AS/400 users soon.
