On a different topic.
256 tape drives sounds an awful lot for a VTL.

Normally I would imagine that you would have only 2-4 tape drives in
the VTL,    but then have hundreds/thousands/tens-of-thousands
storage element slots for the tapes,   and a robot to shuffle the
tens-of-thousands of tapes between the slots and the 2-4 tape drives.

You really want >256 tape drives ?   not tapes,   tape drives ?
