A tape library is a storage device which contains:

  • One or more tape drives
  • A number of slots to hold tape cartridges
  • A method to identify tape cartridges
  • An automated method for loading tapes

The system supports the manual creation of tape libraries and can store information relating to:

  • Manufacturer
  • Model
  • Serial Number
  • Asset Tag
  • Location
  • Support and Maintenance

Hardware items can be automatically detected and a representative image displayed by configuring a hardware definition for the tape libraries in the system.
