Backup with Ease

Easy to order, easy to use and easy to service with a 3U form factor, expandable to up to 272 slots


Automated Data Protection
Regular, disciplined backup is a vital part of a complete disaster recovery strategy. The Dell EMC ML3 is a powerful tape library that helps organizations automate their backup processes to reduce the need for manual intervention and the risk of human error. The Dell EMC ML3 uses optical cartridge location technology for precision cartridge handling and inventory, which helps improve the overall reliability of backups.

Simplified Operations
Tapes can be imported and exported individually using the mail slot or twenty at a time using one of two magazines. The library utilizes barcode-scanning technology to record the location of tape media, so you can be assured that your critical data is properly stored and ready in case disaster strikes.

Intuitive Management
An on-board, user-friendly LCD interface allows you to easily monitor, control, configure, and service the library. While you are away, the tape library enables you to remotely administer all functions, including system status and logs, diagnostics and drive operations, as well as configuration and inventory management features.

Tape Versatility
The comparative low cost for tape — combined with its long history of proven reliability — helps ensure its continued use for both backup and archiving. The portability of tape enables it to be taken off-site and stored in a vault. In addition, LTO tape technology supports write-once, read-many (WORM) capability, which enables permanent data storage that cannot be overwritten — a requirement of many compliance regulations.

Big Capacity, Small Space
With its compact form factor, the Dell EMC ML3 packs an impressive amount of information in a small amount of space. Occupying only three units (3U) of rack space, the library can hold up to 40 tapes, and each ML3E expansion can hold up to 40 tapes — ideal for small office environments managing explosive data growth.

Be Green With Tape
When factoring in the features and benefits of tape storage — such as reliability, portability, encryption and the shelf life (30 years) of tape cartridges — it is the perfect solution for your long-term or short-term backup or archiving needs. In addition, when tape media is stored, it does not require energy until it needs to be accessed. By using zero energy when stored, tape is "naturally" green.
