Oracle's StorageTek SL150 Modular Tape Library Perfect for Entry-level, Mid-level Markets [29980]
Cost Effective, Scalable, Partner Friendly Solution Drives Adoptions

Maureen Slavin, Senior Manager, Storage Product Enablement, Oracle, discusses the StorageTek SL150 Modular Tape Library in an OPN PartnerCast video. The growth and diversity of data is chiefly responsible for the need driving this product, according to Slavin. The SL 150 has great appeal for the entry level and mid-level markets, she says. Expansion by the customer of up to 450 Terabytes (TB) in 21U rackspace accounts for much of this appeal, she asserts. Oracle Fusion Middleware makes management of all this storage extremely easy to use and very cost effective. Suport for the SL150 is very partner friendly, further adding to the product's appeal.
