The IBM® System Storage® TS1140 Tape Drive (TS1140 tape drive) features storage capabilities to help you establish easy, rapid access to data, improve security, provide long-term retention, and help maintain data governance and regulatory compliance. The TS1140 tape drive offers high-performance flexible data storage with support for data encryption. The drive can help you protect your investments in tape automation by offering compatibility with existing automation. To further protect your investment, an upgrade model is available for your existing System Storage TS1130 Tape Drives. For support of heterogeneous server environment, the TS1140 offers multiplatform support and can scale from midrange to enterprise environments.

    The TS1140 tape drive supports the System Storage TS3500 Tape Library and IBM racks that enable stand-alone installation. The TS1140 features three options for Type C media.
