IBM 3584 LTO Ultrium Tape Library
The IBM TotalStorage UltraScalable Tape Library 3584 now supports the IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 2 Tape Drive. It more than doubles tape drive performance over the first generation LTO Ultrium Tape Drive and is designed to support up to 35MB/sec native data transfer rates (70MB/sec with 2:1 compression). In addition, with the use of the new IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 200GB Data Cartridge, the IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 2 Tape Drive doubles the tape cartridge capacity up to 200GB native capacity (400GB with 2:1 compression).IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 2 Tape Drives can read and write original LTO Ultrium data cartridges at first generation Ultrium 1 capacities with improved performance. The Ultrium 2 tape drives and cartridges can be resident in the same 3584 Library frame with first generation original Ultrium tape drives and cartridges. The UltraScalable Tape Library is designed with a variety of advanced features. The multi-path architecture is designed to simultaneously attach heterogeneous servers and applications to LTO logical library partitions, including mixed Ultrium drives and media.|n||n|Remote management capabilities using a Web browser provides library control and configuration.
