I’ve been a contributor to the Bacula project since 2004 (about 10 years). My contributions have mostly in the PostgreSQL backend, regression testing, maintainer of the FreeBSD ports, and how-to guides and blog entries. My current tape library is a donated SDLT 220 unit and I am looking to upgrade it.

Can I have your LTO-4/5/6 tape library please?

I’m asking for a donation but I’m also being choosy.

  1. Space and power considerations are important as the tape library will be sitting in my spare bedroom. Therefore, it has to be a relatively small unit (say 4-6U).
  2. It has to take a standard power cable (i.e 15A, not 20+A) because that’s what my apartment has.

I’ll be using the donation for my backups and ongoing testing of open source projects.

  1. Too bad about the size. I have a Overland Neo8000 with 7 LTO5 drives in it coming free in a few days (and a Neo 4000 LTO2 sitting on a shelf.)

  2. I now have a Dell LT4000, as shown in these photos.
