Versatile and scalable, DSI’s LibraryManager sets the standard for MCP-based robotic library management. LibraryManager easily accommodates your increasing data storage requirements, with a flexible design that supports everything from simple, direct-attached storage configurations to managing multiple libraries from multiple hosts. LibraryManager also provides an interface between various tape management software programs and automated virtual or physical library systems. Library Controller - The library controller is a hardware component connected to the MCP-based host system via TCP/IP. It receives translate commands from the host to the virtual or physical tape library. Responses from the library are then received by the library controller, translated, and returned to the host. The controller appears to the host as an IP address, simplifying configuration changes.
