Notes
  • Spectra Logic supports major FC switch vendors with FC drives attached to Spectra Logic Libraries. This page reflects a general support position from Spectra Logic, and not all equipment has been through a TapeSAN Certification process.
  • The libraries above are also supported in direct connect configurations (no switch); however, in that case the library must be set to hard addressing and loop mode.
  • The FAS250 platform is supported only with Data ONTAP 6.4.1 and later and supports only a copper connection—direct connect or through the 24/2800 family of switches only.
