m2800 sales scenario
M2800 Sales Scenario
  • Problem: 10 TB (compressed) to back up on a rack mounted SAN in 8 hours
      • Truth Assumptions:
        • All speeds are theoretical maximum’s that the SAN architecture is capable of
        • SAN backbone is either 1 GB, 2 GB, or 4 GB
  • Solution: M2800 w/ 5 LTO-2 FC Drives, 1 PSU, & Rack Mount Hardware Kit
      • 1 LTO-2 drive compressed can write 252 GB/Hr
      • 252 GB/Hr x 8 hours = 2,016 GB/Hr (~2 TB)
      • 10,000 GB (10 TB) / 2,016 GB (~2 TB) = ~5 drives (4.96)
      • Remember: IF this was SCSI, a 160 MB/sec SCSI bus is required for every two LTO-1 or -2 drives on the SCSI card

what is partitioning
What is Partitioning?
  • Partitioning is a method of dividing the library’s physical resources into separate, independent entities
  • The process of creating “Virtual Libraries” that are assigned exclusive use of a consecutive block of cartridge slots & one or more tape drives
  • Partitions operate independently, sharing only the E/E port and the robot
  • Partitioning can mix LTO drive generations, and drive & library interfaces all at the same time
partitioning vs san
Partitioning allows sharing of the library and its resources

Servers connected to partitions have access to the library, but only the drives and tape slots assigned to that partition

SCSI partitioning (1-4) requires an additional Tandberg library SCSI interface card(s) to implement

Each SCSI partition requires its own SCSI interface card, 1:1 ratio, 4 SCSI cards maximum

SAN allows sharing of the library and its resources

All servers on the SAN can have access to the same library and all of its contents, through the use of a SAN storage software agent

SAN requires a larger financial commitment to implement

SAN partitioning (1-8) only requires a single Tandberg library FC interface card

1:1-8 ratio, 1 FC card maximum

Partitioning vs. SAN
partition implementation
Partition Implementation
  • Each partition requires a consecutive block of cartridge slots and at least one drive to use
  • The M2800 library features options for supporting up to 4 SCSI partitions and 8 fibre channel partitions
    • This is not a simultaneous feature with 4 SCSI libraries & 8 FC libraries
scsi partitioning setup 2 partitions
SCSI Partitioning Setup, 2 Partitions
  • Partition 1 (shown in blue) consists of SCSI interface card 1 and drives 7 & 8.
  • Partition 2 (shown in red) consists of SCSI card 2 and drives 1 through 6.
  • Even though partitioning is in effect, two drives per 160 MB/sec SCSI LVD bus is required.
  • 1 SCSI Library interface for each Partition, this example requires 2 SCSI Interface Cards
partitioning example with e e port installed 4 partitions
Partitioning Example with E/E Port installed, 4 Partitions
  • 4 Partitions, 4 Virtual libraries
    • Lib1: Slots 1 - 20 & Drives 1 & 2
    • Lib2: Slots 21 - 64 - Drives 3 - 5
    • Lib3: Slots 65 - 122 - Drives 6 & 7
    • Lib4: - Slot 123 - 143 - Drive 8
  • The parts shared by all libraries are colored in red:
    • Calibration block
    • Entry/Exit Port (E/E Port)
    • Robot
fibre partitioning setup
Fibre Partitioning Setup

Point to point or Switched Fabric example:

  • With a fibre interface card installed in the library, cable the interface card directly to the Fibre HBA or switch
  • With fibre drives installed cable directly to the HBA(s) or switch
  • Specify the partitions through the library “partition” menu selecting different logical units (LUN’s) for each partition
  • A maximum of 8 logical fibre partitions are available using 8 drives and 1 fibre channel interface card
m2800 partitioning faq

M2800 Partitioning FAQ

Frequently asked questions regarding partitioning of the M2800 library

why would i need partitioning
Why would I need partitioning?
  • Need for backing up separate servers or workstations where network backups are not sufficient or possible
  • Need for separation of “House” data within the same library
    • Operations
    • Accounting
    • Engineering
    • IT
    • Human Resources
  • Need to use different backup applications
  • Need to backup SCSI servers and Fibre Channel SAN
  • Any other reason that would require the purchase of two separate libraries that would be used in close proximity to each other
m2800 partitioning faq1
M2800 Partitioning FAQ
  • Can I use the E/E port with all partitions?
      • The E/E port is a common part for all libraries, & virtual libraries will have access to it:
  • What happens if more than one library is trying to access the E/E port at the same time ?
      • If one partition is using the E/E port, other requests to use the E/E port will return a SCSI busy status; depending upon the specific backup application program the command may be re-tried
  • Can each partition have a different emulation mode?
      • Yes. Each partition is independent from another and can either run in X80 or X200 emulation mode, or native mode
  • Does the library have to be partitioned equally?
      • No, it is not necessary to partition the library equally. As long as the partitions consist of a consecutive block of cartridge slots and at least one drive or consecutive block of drives, the partition is valid. For example, one partition can consist of slots 1-142 & drives 1-7, while the other partition is slot 143 and drive 8
m2800 partitioning faq2
M2800 Partitioning FAQ
  • What happens if multiple software applications send move requests to their partitions at roughly the same time?
      • The robot manages move requests in a FIFO (First in First out) mode. The First SCSI move request will be the first to complete
      • Simple commands such as moving tapes, loading drives, etc. are quickly completed and will not cause a software application to time-out, even if they are fourth in the queue:
      • However depending on the specific software, commands that take longer to complete such as scans and inventories can possibly cause a time-out in the software and should be spaced out accordingly:
partitioning and cleaning
Partitioning and Cleaning
  • There are two ways of cleaning the LTO tape drives in the M2800 library – Autoclean and Software Controlled cleaning:
      • If Autoclean is enabled on the library, a cleaning cartridge (installed in slot 143) will be used to clean all drives across all partitions automatically when the drives display “drive needs cleaning” status
      • If the backup application (Software Controlled) is to control the cleaning, a cleaning cartridge must be placed within the slots of each partition and defined in each software installation
