Both HP MSL and HP ESL are tape libraries. This is a facility that allows data storage on a magnetic tape. It contains a tape reader and writer, a storage space for the data storage devices, and a robotic arm that transports each tape to its storage location or feeds it to the reading and writing device. The magnetic tapes can correspond to different standards – for example, DAT or LTO. This form of data storage has a major drawback: it is extremely slow. Their key advantage, however, is that they are very cheap if you calculate the cost per byte. For this reason, it is usually used when large amounts of data are required and access time plays only a minor role. The tape library is therefore one of the most commonly used storage media to create backups. This requires a very high capacity. The temporal aspect is of little importance, since the process takes place in the background, often overnight. Yet another feature of this data store has a very positive effect. The high durability of the tapes ensures that the backup data is still available even after many years. HP MSL and HP ESL are characterized by high scalability. Both the number of tapes and the number of drives can be individually adapted so that these systems are suitable for small and medium-sized companies as well as for large corporations. It is also possible to upgrade an existing system after some time as demand grows.
If you have problems with your tape library, you can contact the manufacturer for maintenance. As long as the warranty of the device is still valid, this is certainly a sensible course of action. After the warranty process, however, there are many more options open to you. As a third party maintenance provider, we are fully specialized in hardware maintenance.

Since spare parts are often necessary for ESL and MSL maintenance, we have come up with a good solution for this as well. We have our own warehouse where all components of these systems are in stock. This means that we are not dependent on suppliers. They often take a long time to deliver the corresponding components. Sometimes they are even not available at all. Our warehouse holds all spare parts for MSL and ESL and is open 24 hours a day. Our own logistics ensure that the required articles arrive quickly at the place of use. This excellent infrastructure pays off especially when servicing older equipment.
