mLogic has partnered with Qualstar to offer the popular Q80 tape library

The Q80 features 80 tape cartridge slots and up to six SAS LTO drives. 

The Qualstar Q80 Enterprise LTO tape library is designed for simplicity and reliability, providing superior performance and scalability for expanding data storage and long-term archiving requirements. The Q80 system offers capacity scaling from 80 to 560 cartridge slots, and throughput scaling from one to 42 tape drives. The Q80 utilizes LTO-7, or LTO-8 tape drives, with each 6U high Q80 library module delivering up to 960 terabytes (LTO-8, uncompressed) or up to 2.4 petabytes (LTO-8, compressed) of storage capacity. The Q80 base unit may be expanded with up to six additional modules, creating a single library system with as much as 16.8 petabytes (compressed) storage capacity in a single 42U rack. The Q80 uses a single robot to service all drives and media, maximizing cost effectiveness.

The operator control panel uses an intuitive GUI and incorporates wizards making the system easy to configure and use. The same functionality may also be accessed remotely via the browser-based remote management interface (RMI). This enables IT administrators to remotely configure, manage and diagnose the library from anywhere in the world via the Internet. The Q80 system is also easy to service and repair, with field replaceable tape drives, power supplies, and controller board units.
