DELL/EMC ML3 Tape Compatibility

Post by splumhoff »

Dear all,

for those who thought about which tape library to buy;
We use our DELL EMC ML3 Tape Library with 2 LTO7-Drives (ULT3580-HH7) without any problems since 3 years.
Encryption, Hardware-compression, Tapechanger, everything works like a charm with B&R 11.

The library seems to be a DELL-customized version of an IBM product (IBM 3573-TL), which seems to be the IBM TS4300.

Hope this helps someone of you.

Thanks for sharing. Both systems are a Quantum OEM in the end.

I think it's most likely IBM OEM like DELL TL1000, TL2000 etc...

IBM only makes the actual Drives now (and they may be the only company to actually manufacture LTO drives?), the TS4300 is an IBM re-branded library manufactured by a German company.
