There are 3, data tracks in Ultrium 7 versus 2, data tracks in Ultrium 6. Pre-labeling, with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and color-coding Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk Cartridge memory, built into every cartridge, which helps to enhance functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed Half-inch particle tape with a GB WORM native capacity in a single cartridge Larger Internal Data Buffer: Further, data path failover is designed to provide autonomic self-healing capabilities similar to control path failover, and is designed to failover to an alternate data path if a failure in the primary host-side path occurs. No Maximum number of features: Customer replacement units CRUs: The installation of a Ultrium 6 tape drive with encryption may require code updates for System p and supported open systems device drivers or storage management software.

Family +01 IBM System Storage TS Tape Library Express Model L2U

Fibre channel cable lengths are limited to meters ft. This is designed to optimize readback signals for linear readback response from MR read head transducers Separate writing of multiple filemarks: Robust drive components optimized for automation environments: The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation.

There are wineows tracks in Ultrium 5 versus data tracks in Iwndows 4. Yes, Plant Only Limitations: The library physical capacity is Designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response.


Drives, power supply, cartridge magazines are customer replacement parts. Actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed. Additional magazines may be ordered as an option. All media and cleaner cartridges are warranted separately from the TS Tape Library. Although the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved.

Capacity and performance requirements Data protection, reliability, and availability Storage usage and application requirements Affordability Loyalty to legacy or existing tape formats Work environment – limited space The TS Tape Library and storage windowx applications help address these requirements and constitute a functionally rich tape storage solution incorporating LTO Ultrium tape technology. The Ultrium 8 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel attachments for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers.

All media and cleaner cartridges are warranted separately from the TS Tape Library.

The TS Tape Library comes with raven black covers. Only the following features are allowed on the initial machine order: With LTO Generation 6 media specification of up to 6.

From the Select from Tape drivers and software menu, select Tape device drivers. Verify tape drive compression.

The TS is designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage. This change helps prevent having to rewrite datasets containing customer data and the first filemark if such an append occurs.


Only available on feature A remote management unit and a barcode reader are standard in the library, allowing the library to run in sequential or random access mode. Cables, wndows separately, are required to attach the tape library in the TS to host a SAS adapter.

The TS Tape Library is external, stand-alone or rack-mountable units that contain LTO Ultrium tape drives designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage.

The library can be a cost-effective solution for backup, save-and-restore, and archiving functions as the entry point for the family of IBM Ultrium tape products. If the Encryption Key Manager is run on a server with Windows: 35773 Maximum number of features: Refer to the Supplies section, for additional information.

Cables, ordered separately, are required to attach the tape drive in the TS to host Fibre Channel adapters, Fibre Channel switches, or other Fibre Channel components. Data cartridges are sold separately and subject to availability.

The high- bandwidth servo system features a low-mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments. None of the above, continue with my search.

It includes a SCSI terminator. The tape cartridge physical capacity is up to GB native physical capacity 1, GB with 2:
