Like all Q Series models, the Q8 Entry-Level LTO tape library is designed with reliability and the customer experience in mind, offering simple installation and easy maintenance. Its 1U high enclosure is rackmountable and the Q8 offers capacities up to 144 terabytes (native) or 360 terabytes (compressed). The unit’s built-in menu-driven operator control panel is intuitively laid out and easy to use. The same functionality is also available via the integrated browser-based Remote Management Interface (RMI), which enabes IT administrators to remotely configure, manage, and diagnose the library from anywhere in the world. All field-replaceable components—such as the tape drive, power supply, and controller board—are removable with standard tools.
