Automated Storage Library
The AML/J automated storage library offers a unique combination of solutions for your large system midrange data storage needs.
The AML/J automated storage library offers a unique combination of solutions for your large system midrange data storage needs.

AML libraries support more than a dozen media types, including all leading tape formats (3590, 9840, DLTtape, AIT, DTF, etc), non-digital recorders (Betacam, for example), even audio CDs and optical disks.

The AML/J grows economically with your data using a unique barrier-free expansion system that eliminates pass-through ports. It provides a wide choice of storage technologies, including simultaneous use of different media, and it offers an easy migration path to new technologies.
It offers an integrated multi-host architecture that makes it easy to share the library between different applications and operating systems.

The AML/J system of expansion modules offers a fundamentally different approach. It grows easily and economically in direct response to your data growth-from as few as 2 drives and 400 cartridges up to as many as 226 drives and 7500 cartridges. With the AML/J's unique barrier-free expansion, the entire library is served by a continuous, integrated robotics system that completely eliminates the delays and reliability penalties caused by pass-through ports.

The AML/J grows with your data through a barrier-free expansion system that never uses pass-through ports. The Base Module houses drives, media, an import/export unit, and the library controller. The library can be expanded with up to nine Expansion Modules, each housing media alone (Storage Expansion Module) or a combination of media and drives (Drive Expansion Module). Additional two-magazine import/export units may be added to any module to provide automated media transfer or dedicated storage. The single robot and media picker supports concurrent operation of multiple media types and can be easily upgraded in the field to support new drive and media technology.
