SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - Qualstar Corporation (NASDAQ: QBAK), a manufacturer of data security and archive storage solutions and high efficiency power supplies under the N2Power brand, today announced that it has ended production of the TLS-8000 and RLS-8000 tape library families. Warranties, technical support and service programs are unaffected by this announcement. Both product lines have been superseded by the recently introduced RLS-8350 and RLS-8500 Expandable Tape Libraries.
Using Qualstar's exclusive FastPass™ elevator assembly, the new RLS-8350 and RLS-8500 libraries are customer-expandable from 50 slots and three LTO 5 tape drives to over 470 slots, 1.4 Petabytes or over 53,000 hours of SD video, and 20 drives in a single 19" rack.
The RLS-8350 and RLS-8500 libraries also include built-in encryption key management to protect against data loss while tapes are in transit to external disaster protection sites or other remote locations. The user-specified keys unlock the powerful AES 256-bit encryption capability built into every LTO 5 tape drive.
RLS-8350 and RLS-8500 Expandable Tape Libraries are available exclusively through Qualstar's worldwide network of Authorized Resellers. Contact Qualstar, an Authorized Reseller or visit www.qualstar.com for more information.
