The Oracle StorageTek SL8500 Modular Tape Library has a  highly scalable environment with up to more than 3,200,000 tape cartridge slots under a single pane of management allowing customers to store 57.6 EB of uncompressed data for high-performance computing, big data, and cloud environments. The StorageTek SL8500’s centerline design reduces access latency to customers’ backups and archives because robots travel one-third to one-half the distance of those on competitive libraries.
