IBM’s Versatile TS3200 Tape Library Supports the Firmly-Established LTO Ultrium Tape Technology

As the volume of corporate databases is growing exponentially, the data-rich organizations prefer tape libraries to secure their data assets. Automated operations of tape libraries improve the performance level, while reducing the operational expenses and error rate.

IBM has set new standards and initiated significant technological innovations in tape industry since 1952. IBM tape solutions are extremely efficient and cater the specific customer needs at the best price. IBM has designed a new multi-functional TS3200 tape library, which better serves the storage demands of mid-sized organizations. It supports the high-capacity versions of the firmly-established LTO format including the latest LTO 5 tape. Other LTO generations are LTO ultrium 3 and LTO ultrium 4.

IBM TS3200 library features a 4-U form factor, and within this compact architecture it can accommodate 48 LTO tapes. The number of drive slots also has been increased. Now you can seamlessly attach to the library 2 full-height or 4 half-height drives. With such an increased number of tape resources, the data storage capacity of IBM TS3200 library reaches up to 72/144 terabytes. So the I.T managers can efficiently overcome the stiff challenges around data protection, cost effectiveness and consolidation.

The IBM’s fifth generation LTO5 ultrium devices feature significant improvement in data security, performance and capacity. A single LTO5 media cartridge can pack higher amount of information (almost 88%) in comparison to LTO4 backup tape. Like its predecessors, LTO5 tape brands can also be flexibly used with any branded LTO-5 hardware. LTO5 ultrium tapes that are enjoying high market share are 27672 (Imation), MR-L5MQN-01 (Quantum), LTX1500G (Sony), 229323 (Maxell) and the industry-leading C7975A (HP).

IBM TS3200 library is energy-efficient and features the robust technologies to help meet the high-performance demands. IBM has employed a breakthrough “remote management tool” that provides you the advantage of monitoring and operating the library through web interface. So you can run setups and update the firmware from remote sites with supreme reliability. This exceptional feature save more time and further elevates the storage performance.

The data throughput speed of IBM TS3200 library depends upon the LTO drives, which you have attached to the library. The LTO 5 drives operate at 280Mbps, whereas the speed of LTO4 and LTO 3 drive is 240Mbps and 160 Mbps. These are the compressed data transfer rates. For fast data access, the library must keep detailed information of all the media tapes. That is why IBM has incorporated a special bar-code reader. To further improve its functionality, IBM has intelligently engineered the bar-code reader to perform seamlessly in random and sequential mode. The addition of new drive interfaces including fiber channel (3 GB, 6 GB) and SAS (4 GB, 8 GB) provide exceptional compatibility, thus facilitating the I.T managers to efficiently manage the backup tape resources. Another compelling benefit of installing this space-efficient IBM TS3200 library is that you can encrypt the data files. This feature is available with LTO4 and LTO 5 tape resources. The 256-bit encryption algorithm will secure your valuable data ass

ets against malicious data access, thus providing a smart and efficient solution to your rigorous demands.
