5.3 Tapes 3000




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

5.3 Tapes 3000

    Tapes3000 is a UNISON/TYMLABS product that puts a label on a reel
tape, DDS, any kind of media storage and adds it to a "tapes database"
so you do not have to manually log and label backup tapes or special
request tapes, and possibally make a mistake. You can also use this
for unlabeled media, but then you would have to manually log the
media. You are able to set a "dataset" for differrent retentions
(Generations, weekly, monthly, daily etc). Then when those criteria
are met the program will automatically scratch those tapes, then you
run a report and it will give you a list of what scratched for that
day, week, or whatever time you want to run the job.

Tapes3000 is part of a package that you can receive called MAESTRO
which is a job scheduler program. Not an autochanger control package,
just tape management software. (R Johnson
