Library Layout and Location requirements
Information for planning the installation and layout of your library, including various specifications for optimal performance.
For tabletop installation - Tabletop installations (one Base Module) require no additional hardware.
For rackmount installation - If possible, install the Base Module in the middle of the rack to provide space for the allowed three Expansion Modules above it and three Expansion Modules below it. See Structure and supported library configurations for details.
- Library location
- You’re responsible for the security of this library, the cartridges that are contained within the library, and shelf-resident cartridges. To prevent unauthorized access to data, IBM recommends locating the library and all shelf-resident cartridges in an area where access is controlled.
- Onsite security measures
- You’re also responsible for evaluating, selecting, and implementing security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
- Data security
- Data security is accomplished through the Management GUI. See Locating Management functions.
