IBM Storage Systems
IBM Tape Storage Overview
Tape storage means better data economics. Long a preferred technology for data backup, tape is proving to be the ideal choice for cost-effective long term storage of unstructured data generated by big data and cloud computing.
Scalability, durability, security, energy efficiency and a compellingly lower cost than disk make tape the “secret weapon” for effective long term data retention.
IBM is the worldwide tape market share leader offering a full range of tape storage solutions including drives, autoloaders, libraries, virtual tape systems and Spectrum Archive software which can make tape as easy to use as disk.

IBM Entry Level Tape Drives
Incorporating the latest generation of industry-leading LTO technology, the TS2270 tape drive is suited for handling backup, save and restore, and archival data storage needs with higher capacity and higher data transfer rates than the previous generation.
In addition, the LTO Ultrium 7 technology is designed to support media partitioning and IBM Spectrum Archive technology. It also continues to support encryption of data and write-once-read-many (WORM) media.
The IBM TS2270 tape drive is an excellent tape storage solution for organizations requiring backup and low-cost, long term archival storage of data. TS2270, with a half-height form-factor, offers more capacity than the full-height LTO Ultrium 6 tape drive in less space. TS2270 provides a physical storage capacity of up to 15 TB (with 2.5:1 compression).
The data transfer performance has increased significantly over the previous LTO Ultrium half-height generation with a transfer rate of up to 300 MBps with 6 Gbps SAS interface connectivity.
