Looking for any information on the Qualstar Q24 LTO-8 Tape Library. Considering a purchase of this system, but was wondering if anyone had real world experience with this tape library. I'm looking for Pros & Cons concerning the hardware reliability and ease of operation. Any info, good or bad will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

khudson,

Almost all the Forums posts for Qualstar have to do with AIT drives, and are quite old.  How about telling Qualstar "put your money where your mouth is", meaning guarantee in writing to refund what you paid for the Q24—and at least a couple of LTO-8 tapes—if it doesn't work with Retrospect for a 90-day trial period?

BTW, you haven't stated either your version of Retrospect Windows or your version of Windows.  You also haven't stated whether you want to connect your Q24 with SAS or FC.

However thanks for copying your OP to this sub-Forum.  Maybe you originally thought "Product Suggestions-Windows" was for suggestions about hardware products to be used with the Retrospect Windows software?

khudson,

Here's the one post on the Forums that mentions a Qualstar LTO library, although an older one than the Q24.  That post was about slowness of Retrospect Windows Server in backing up two drives simultaneously,  but never mentioned any problem with the Qualstar RLS - 8350 LTO 6 library itself.   rafi went on to immediately make other posts, which were related to using Retrospect Mac Clients with a Retrospect Windows "backup server".  Unfortunately rafi was allergic to supplying further information by making any second post in the same thread.
