StorageTek has introduced the L700e tape library. The company said L700e will double library capacity with the addition of a Pass Through Port (PTP).
Customers will gain increased capacity because of the ability to connect two libraries with the PTP. The product also allows for mixed media such as StorageTek T9940, StorageTek 9840, DLT, SDLT and LTO tape drives to be used within a single library environment. The L700e tape library is available immediately, and StorageTek will begin shipping the PTP for the library in the first quarter of 2002.
