Toys for boys (Part I)

Sony StorStation LIB-81

I just had the new Sony StorStation LIB-81 tape library delivered. It can load up to eight 200 GB AIT-4 tapes and (as I figured out during the “look inside”) has a barcode scanner that might significantly speed up the tape detection process.

Now I only need to make some space in the 19-inch rack as I do also want to install the XServe RAID at the same time.

  1. Interesting, so you backup on tapes. We are doing all ours on harddrives, which also works quite well due to RAIDing and quite cheap replacement costs.
