The software driver for the Sun SuperLoader allows for the deployment of a tape autoloader, providing solutions for high performance and high capacity storage devices under a scalable infrastructure. The software driver makes it possible to either swap or upgrade the storage facilities directly from the host computer system's worksite to protect the data integrity. Likewise, the proper installation of the device driver makes the process of future storage expansion simpler. This is mainly due to the backward compatibility that provides ample support for both older and newer versions of the Sun SuperLoader product line. Although primarily developed for enterprise environments, the Sun SuperLoader hardware device can also be deployed in a small office environment for the purpose of maximizing data storage as well as security. In many instances, the Sun SuperLoader is a preferred backup system to secure important business related data.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Once the driver has been properly installed into the host computer system, it is possible for the computer user to swap any cartridge without negatively impacting or interrupting the operation of the host system. The driver for the Sun SuperLoader also supports the optional deployment of a bar code reading system which allows for the implementation of a tape management technique. The device driver makes it possible for software applications and the underlying operating system to support the maximum transfer rate for the hardware which is rated at 16 MB per second for storage capacities between 320 GB to 2.56 TB. For lower storage capacities, the maximum transfer rates that can be achieved with the driver support are 3 MB per second. The Sun SuperLoader requires the presence of the accompanying driver to be identified by the host operating system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Sun SuperLoader errors before installing any driver updates.
