Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

StorageTek Tape Analytics 2.3

Product Description:

Oracle's StorageTek Tape Analytics (STA) is a product which helps customers assess performance, utilization, issues, and other aspects of automated tape libraries, tape drives, media, and other tape-library-related components.  It is an intelligent monitoring application available exclusively for Oracle's StorageTek Modular Tape Libraries. It simplifies tape storage management and allows you to make informed decisions about future tape storage investments based on the current health of your environment.  STA allows you to monitor globally dispersed libraries from a single, browser-based user interface. You can manage open systems and mainframe mixed-media, and mixed-drive environments across multiple library platforms.

There are three user-visible interfaces covered by this VPAT: The STA Installation process, The STA Utilities, and the STA Browser-based User Interface (BUI). This VPAT also covers the following product user interfaces (UIs) to the extent those UIs are seen in this product:
  • Oracle Weblogic Server 11g Release 1 10.3.6
  • ADF Faces Rich Client Components (output of JDeveloper), 11g R1 PS5 11.1.1.6
