The Dell PowerVault TL1000 tape autoloader brings high density and remote management backup capabilities to small and medium businesses in a compact, affordable 1U form factor.

Automated backup delivers true value

The Dell™ PowerVault TL1000 tape autoloader is designed to maximize the storage capacity available in a space-saving 1U rack-mount chassis, making it ideal for consolidating multiple or remote application servers for unattended, automated backup. The affordable PowerVault TL1000 delivers features found previously only in high-end libraries. A simple design allows you to manage up to nine total cartridges. Plus, you have a choice of equipping the autoloader with one LTO-7, LTO-6, LTO-5 or LTO-4 tape drive.

Administrative ease can save time and money

The PowerVault TL1000 is designed to automate backup tasks so that administrators can focus on other efforts. Remote management through a web-based browser provides the ability to oversee backup operations from a remote device. Plus, automatic cartridge swapping helps reduce the risk for human error sometimes caused by manually switching cartridges. The PowerVault TL1000 can also simplify large or frequent backup or archive scenarios.

Crafted for easy installation and use, the PowerVault TL1000 can quickly be implemented into existing infrastructures. The removable ninedata-slot magazine enables fast bulk tape loading, while the standard barcode reader helps save time allowing administrators to randomly or sequentially access their cartridges. Library-managed encryption is available with LTO-6 and later generation technology for added security at point-of-sale only.

A validated backup solution designed to ensure peace of mind

The PowerVault TL1000 offers seamless integration with customer infrastructures. It works with different operating systems such as Microsoft Windows and Linux. To help ensure compatibility and easy implementation, the PowerVault TL1000 is Dell certified, tested and validated for use on Dell hardware including PowerEdge servers and select storage devices. It is also backed by Dell technical support for the length of your limited warranty.1 The PowerVault TL1000 is a premier tape autoloader for busy administrators, delivering dense storage capacity in a 1U form factor at an affordable price.
