Based on Tandberg Data's award-winning VXA Packet Technology, the StorageLoader VXA-320 sets a new standard for ease-of-use, reliability, capacity, and price for this class of automation product. The StorageLoader VXA has 10 cartridge slots for a capacity of up to 3.2 TB of compressed data (320 GB per cartridge, compressed), all in a slim 1U form factor. The PacketLoader also offers a barcode reader standard, remote management and a field-replaceable drive, allowing for easy upgrades without the cost of buying a whole new autoloader.

Over three successive generations, VXA products have been disaster-tested by Tandberg Data and independent labs under the most severe conditions – including violent vibration, immersion in volcanic dust, boiling water and hot coffee, and even freezing cartridges in ice – to assure reliable and complete data restores.
