Mailslot Mechanism enables simple real-time cartridge tape insertion and ejection

A slot (cell) on the front of each magazine can be setup as a mailslot. This allows a tape cartridge to be inserted or ejected from the library while the library is online.

Mailslot is useful in the following situations:

  • When inserting/ejecting specific volume cartridge tapes
  • When inserting/ejecting the cleaning cartridge tapes
  • When ejecting defective cartridge tapes

Using mailslot shortens response time compared to replacing whole magazines.

  • Eliminates a bar code scan of all slots
  • Eliminates need to update media mapping of backup software
