Space Efficiency

xp-stack-rainbow.jpgData vault space has never been more valuable, making the space-efficiency of tape storage containers more critical.  To compare the amount of valuable space consumed by containers, let's look at the math:

A)  Standard 20-tape container:

  • External dimensions of XpresspaX Single-tray container, capacity up to 20 tapes: 
  • 14.75" x 11.25" x 5.9" = 979 cubic inches.
  • External dimensions of Perm-a-store Turtle-20 container, capacity 20 tapes:
  • 18" x 14.25" x 6.25" = 1,603 cubic inches.

Turtle consumes 63% more critical operatonal space compared to XpresspaX.

B)  40-tape container:

  • External dimensions of XpresspaX Dual-tray container, capacity up to 40 tapes:
  • 27" x 11.25" x 5.9" = 1792 cubic inches.
  • TWO Turtle-20's, capacity 40 tapes (Perm-a-store does not offer a 40-pack container):
  • 1,603 x 2 = 3,206 cubic inches.

Turtle consumes nearly 80% more critical operational space compared to XpresspaX.

XpresspaX is the most space-efficient and cost-effective case in the industry!
