The IBM System Storage™ TS1120 Tape Drive (TS1120 tape drive) offers a solution to address applications that need high-capacity, fast access to data or long-term data retention. It is supported in IBM tape libraries, IBM frames that support stand-alone installation, and in an IBM 3592 Tape Frame Model C20 (3592 C20 frame) attached to a Sun StorageTek™ 9310 library.
The tape drive uses IBM 3592 Cartridges, which are available in limited capacity (100GB) for fast access to data, and standard capacity (500 GB) or extended capacity (700 GB) that help to reduce resources to lower total cost. All three cartridges are available in re-writable or Write Once Read Many (WORM) format.
TS1120 tape drives can be shared among supported open system hosts on a Storage Area Network (SAN) or between IBM FICON® and ESCON® mainframe hosts when attached to an IBM System Storage TS1120 Tape Controller (TS1120 tape controller). Sharing drives optimizes drive utilization and helps reduce infrastructure requirements.
The TS1120 tape drive supports a native data transfer rate of up to 104 MBps. In open system environments where data typically compresses at 2:1, the TS1120 tape drive can transfer data up to 200 MBps. In a mainframe environment where data typically compresses at 3:1, a single tape drive can transfer data up to 260 MBps. This can help reduce backup and recovery times or require fewer resources to support the environment.
