mean-swap-between-failure (MSBF)

Contributor(s): Chiou-Shann Fuh

Mean-swap-between-failure (MSBF) is a measure used by at least one company to express the reliability of an automated tape library system in which a robot is used to automatically swap tape cartridge s when needed. The Quantum ATL IntelliGrip feature for its tape system controls the gripping force of the robot allowing it to firmly grasp the tape cartridge and gently swap it with another. According to Quantum ATL, its automatic tape cartridge system has an MSBF of 2,000,000 (that is, two million swaps between any two failures).
