This architecture delivers tape libraries that are self-aware – self-managed, automatically maintained, continuously available – and network-aware – resilient, secure, and adaptable. HP's high-end tape libraries provide the reliability, interoperability, and advanced functionality required for your enterprise SAN environment. As a key component of the HP StorageWorks Extended Tape Library Architecture, the HP StorageWorks E2400-160 FC Interface Controller is a key component in a complete data protection solution. It is an embedded Fibre Channel-to-SCSI controller with two, user configurable, 1Gb or 2 Gb Fibre Channel ports and four SCSI (LVD) ports and allows multiple host servers to communicate with a SCSI tape device over a Fibre Channel link. It is targeted towards customers whose backup window is impacting mission critical business operations and who need to reduce or remove the impact of the backup window. To install the HP StorageWorks E2400-160 FC Interface Controller a card cage is required which is installed into the back of the library.
