The IBM® TS1140 tape drive features storage capabilities to help you establish rapid access to data, improve security, provide long-term retention, and maintain data governance and regulatory compliance. TS1140 offers high-performance, flexible data storage with support for data encryption and can help protect your investments in tape automation through compatibility with existing automation. To further protect your investment, an upgrade model is available for existing IBM TS1130 tape drives. For flexible storage in heterogeneous server infrastructures, TS1140 offers multiplatform support and scales from midrange to enterprise environments.
IBM® TS3500 Tape Library is designed to provide a highly-scalable, automated tape library for mainframe and open-systems backup and archive that can scale from midsized to large enterprise environments. With features such as persistent worldwide name, multipath architecture, drive and media exception reporting, remote drive and media management, and host-based path failover, the TS3500 continues to lead the industry in tape drive integration. It also includes data encryption capabilities within the drives, helping to avoid the need for host-based data encryption—reducing drain on host performance.
The IBM® TS2900 Tape Autoloader is an entry-level automated backup for rack systems and small to midsize businesses. With a low-profile, high-density storage capacity, the TS2900 is ideally suited for backup and archival operations.
