License is for use only with third-party key management products, do not use with other SKM or mix with SKM licensing. Enables communication with a third-party key manager for four tape drives. Supported tape drives include IBM LTO-6 or later. Not needed if application managed encryption is used, e.g., NetBackup key management. The Compatibility Guide on Quantum.com should be checked for specific drive manufacturer, LTO generation, and encryption key manager support. At the time of this publication, SafeNet KeySecure (KMIP), Thales keyAuthority (KMIP) and IBM TKLM/SKLM (non-KMIP) key managers are supported. The number of encryption licenses quoted/ordered should equal the number of drives installed in encryption enabled partitions. Mixing with non-encrypted drives is allowed, but only in separate partitions (partitioning is included in the base library). Requires the drive encryption warranty uplift to be added for each tape drive license used (SSC33-RLM1-xL10). Warranty/service level of key-enabled drives must match the service length and level of the system. This is a library-based license that cannot be transferred to another library.
