Description

3584 Tape Library Overview

The IBM TotalStorage 3584 Tape Library is part of a family of tape library storage solutions designed for the large, unattended storage requirements from today's midrange systems to high-end open systems. Each aspect of the subsystem is designed to optimize access to data and reliability. The 3584 Tape Library supports the IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 1, 2, and 3 Tape Drives and the IBM TotalStorage 3592 Enterprise Tape Drive. IBM LTO Ultrium tape drives are compact storage devices designed to support the highly intensive read and write operations required by today's open system servers.

The IBM Ultrium 3 Tape Drive is the third generation of LTO Ultrium tape drives in the IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium family of products. Ultrium 3 Tape Drives and data cartridges can be resident in same 3584 Tape Library frame with Ultrium 2 or Ultrium 1 Tape Drives and data cartridges, and adjacent frames can have 3592 Tape Drives and data cartridges. The 3592 Tape Drives are designed to provide high levels of performance, functionality, and cartridge capacity supporting the 3592 tape format, including Write Once Read Many (WORM) media support.

The 3584 Library Models L32 and D32 can be equipped with IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 1, 2, or 3 Tape Drives, the Models L52 and D52 with IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives, and the Models L22 and D22 with the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Tape Drive 3592. The 3584 Models D22, D52, L22, and L52 have a smaller footprint than the Models D32 or L32, so they take up less floor space. The Ultrium 3 Tape Drives and data cartridges can be resident in the same 3584 Tape Library frame with Ultrium 1 or 2 Tape Drives and data cartridges, and adjacent frames can have 3592 Tape Drives and data cartridges. The 3584 supports mixed media in the same library by supporting the intermix of the Models D22, D32, and D52 within a 3584 library. Input/Output (I/O) stations are located on the Models L22, L32, or L52 to facilitate tape loading and unloading. The 3584 High Availability Model HA1 may be added to the 3584 Tape Library Base Frame Models L22, L32, or L52. In conjunction with a service bay feature on the 3584 Model D22 or D52, the Model HA1 provides for the installation and operation of a second library accessor in a 3584 Tape Library to help improve availability and performance.

The 3584 Tape Library is designed to provide an excellent network data backup/archive solution. With the granularity and scalability to follow your requirements from a few servers to hundreds of clients, from gigabytes to terabytes, this powerful pairing can grow with you, helping protect your investment.

3584 Tape Library means high performance

The IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives and 3592 Tape Drives are designed for high performance in a streaming mode of operation. Automatic data caching, using an expanded cache memory and read/write buffering, enhances performance even further. Aggregate library data rates for a fully configured 3584 Tape Library supports extremely high data transfer performance.

Cartridge move time within the 3584 Tape Library is typically less than 3.0 seconds in a single-frame library. The dual-gripper accessor can retrieve the next cartridge to be mounted, unload the current cartridge, and load the next cartridge, providing the following potential benefits as compared to a single gripper:

  • Save complete move operations
  • Improve overall library performance
  • Offer increased redundancy and higher reliability

3584 Tape Library defines high reliability

Leading-edge technology positions the 3592 and IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives as industry leaders. Highly accurate recording is supported by an exclusive thin-film write module designed by IBM with read-after-write data verification. Data read is managed by IBM's industry-leading Magneto Resistive (MR) heads, designed for accuracy, high reliability, and durability. The 3584 drives and library robotics are TapeAlert-compatible, providing tape drive, and library error and diagnostic reporting. Drive cleaning is an automatic function that can be performed by the library when required by the drive, without requiring operator intervention.

High granularity in library configurations

Features and capacities are designed to match a wide variety of customer requirements. You can attach up to 15 Model D22, D32, or D52 Expansion Frames to a Model L22, L32, or L52 Base Frame to tailor the library to match your system capacity and performance needs. This provides a cartridge capacity with Ultrium data cartridges of up to 6,887 cartridges, or with 3592 data cartridges of up to 6,260 cartridges You can intermix cartridges and drive types in different frames and have up to 192 tape drives in up to 16 total 3584 library frames.

Model D52 (Expansion Frame)

The 3584 Model D52 Expansion Frame is designed for IBM LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives and LTO data cartridges. Up to 15 Model D52 Expansion Frames may be added to the 3584 Model L22, L32, or L52 Base Frame to increase LTO cartridge storage or drive capacity. Each Model D52 supports up to 440 LTO cartridge slots and up to 12 IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives, with an incremental reduction of storage slots for each set of four tape drives installed. Each frame can have up to 12 logical libraries or 12 control paths (one per tape drive).

Designed for availability

If you are looking to maximize availability with minimum downtime for service-related activities, you will appreciate that the library preserves tape drive configuration settings, such as Fibre Channel World Wide Node Names (WWNN), when a tape drive is replaced. This helps to ensure that the replacement drive has the same WWNN as the original drive and may help avoid the need to re-IPL or reconfigure host systems. Fibre Channel drives require only a quiesce of the individual drive. Redundant hot-swap library and drive power supplies can also be replaced without any impact to host sytems.

ALMS is designed to eliminate outages when adding Capacity On Demand (COD) storage, adding or removing logical libraries, or when changing logical library storage allocation. The use of ALMS may also reduce outages when adding expansion frames, adding or removing tape drives, or changing logical drive allocation.

A Dual AC Power feature, supporting either 110 Volt ac or 220 Volt ac, provides a power switch to allow connection of two line cords to two independent customer branch circuits. This can enhance library availability by having an alternative power source in case of planned or unplanned power grid outages.

3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1

The 3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1 is designed to improve the performance and availability of the 3584 Tape Library. The Model HA1, in conjunction with service bay features on the 3584 Models D22 and D52, provide for the installation of a second library accessor that is designed to operate simultaneously with the first accessor and service mount requests in the 3584 Tape Library at the same time. It is designed to non-disruptively failover to a redundant accessor when any component of either accessor fails, which helps maintain availability and relibility. Additionally, this design includes the ability to add one or more Model D52 or D22 Frames to a 3584 Tape Library that has an attached Model HA1 with minimal disruption.

Dual active accessor support is provided in a mixed media library. This includes any combination of 3592 and LTO Ultrium media types. Advanced Library Management Systems (ALMS) will be required for support of dual accessors and two or more 3584 frames are required in a high availability configuration.

A dual accessor library will have two garage areas called service bays. Service Bay A (the 3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1) is to left of and adjacent to the L-frame, when facing the front door. Service Bay B (a modified 3584 Model D22 or D52) is to the right of the last active frame in the library. The service bays will be regular library frames but they will not have any drives, power supplies, or node cards. Storage slots within the service bays will only be used to test service actions.

The actual performance of the 3584 Tape Library is determined by a number of factors, such as: accessor capacity, number of library frames, number of tape drives, location of tape drives and tape cartridges, and tape cartridge residency.

Multi-Path support

The Multi-Path Architecture of the 3584 Tape Library provides the capability for sharing of the library robotics. This is accomplished by partitioning the library into up to 192 multiple logical libraries (up to the number of drives installed), and providing each logical library its own separate and distinct drive(s), storage slots, and control path(s). I/O slots are shared on a first-come-first-served basis. This type of partitioning allows heterogeneous applications to share the library robotics independent of each other. Cartridges under library control are not shared between logical libraries, nor allowed to be moved between logical libraries. An example of heterogeneous sharing is a Microsoft Windows 2000 application using the drive and storage slots of one logical library, while a UNIX application uses the drive and slots of another logical library.

Logical libraries can also be used for separating different generations of Ultrium Tape Drives and cartridges, or 3592 Tape Drives and cartridges, for applications which do not support mixing the drives in the same logical library.

Advanced Library Management System

The Advanced Library Management System (ALMS) is the next generation of patented IBM Multi-Path Architecture. ALMS provides a license key to enable dynamic management of cartridges, cartridge storage slots, tape drives, and logical libraries. Tape drives can be assigned to any logical library using a Web user interface. Logical libraries can be added, deleted, or easily changed non-disruptively. Storage capacity can typically be changed without any impact to host applications. ALMS is required when a 3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1 is installed in the 3584 Tape Library.

Control Path Failover

Two types of path failover capabilities exist: Control Path Failover (CPF) and Data Path Failover (DPF). Control refers to the command set that controls the library (the SCSI Medium Changer command set on LUN 1 of the tape drives). Data refers to the command set that carries the customer data to and from the tape drives (the SCSI-3 Stream Commands (SSC) device on LUN 0 of the tape drives). Path failover means the same thing in both: that is, where there is redundancy in the path from the application to the intended target (the library accessor or the drive mechanism), the device driver transparently fails over to another path in response to a break in the active path.

Both types of failover include host-side failover when configured with multiple host bust adapter (HBA) ports into a switch, but CPF includes target-side failover through the control paths that are enabled on more than one tape drive. DPF includes target-side failover for 3592 Tape Drives only by using the dual-ported interface of the drive.

For enhanced availability you may use CPF. This optional feature is designed to provide automatic control path failover to a preconfigured redundant control path in the event of a loss of a host adapter or control path drive, without aborting the current job in progress. Support is currently provided under AIX, Solaris, and Linux when the IBM device driver is used. Additional operating systems support will be provided in the future for installed CPF users.

Data Path Failover and Load Balancing

Data Path Failover (DPF) and Load Balancing exclusively supports native Fibre Channel Ultrium Tape Drives and 3592 Tape Drives in the 3584 Tape Library using the IBM device driver. Support is currently provided for AIX, Linux, and Solaris. Additional operating systems support will be provided in the future for installed DPF users. DPF is designed to provide a failover mechanism in the IBM device driver, which enables you to configure multiple redundant paths in a SAN environment. In the event of a path or component failure, the failover mechanism is designed to automatically provide error recovery to retry the current operation using an alternate, preconfigured path without aborting the current job in progress. This allows you flexibility in SAN configuration, availability, and management.

When accessing a tape drive device that has been configured with alternate pathing across multiple host ports, the IBM device driver automatically selects a path through the HBA that has the fewest open tape devices, and assigns that path to the application. This autonomic self-optimizing capability is called Load Balancing. The dynamic load balancing support is designed to optimize resources for devices that have physical connections to multiple HBAs in the same machine. The device driver is designed to dynamically track the usage on each HBA as applications open and close devices, and balance the number of applications using each HBA in the machine. This may help optimize HBA resources and improve overall performance. Further, DPF provides autonomic self-healing capabilities similar to CPF, with transparent failover to an alternate data path in the event of a failure in the primary host-side path.

Note: DPF and Load Balancing for Ultrium 3 Tape Drives, or Ultrium 2 Tape Drives attached to operating systems other than AIX, requires an optional feature. Load Balancing is not currently supported for Solaris.

Fibre Channel connectivity

Tape drives in the 3584 Tape Library Models D22, D52, L22, and L52 are designed to connect to host systems using Fibre Channel interfaces. An LTO Ultrium Tape Drive with a Fibre Channel interface or 3592 Tape Drive can be selected for attachment to host systems and servers utilizing Fibre Channel adapters. Fibre Channel connection distances up to 300 meters (at 2-Gbps) are possible. By utilizing selected Fibre Channel Switches, distances exceeding 300 meters are possible.

Ultrium 3 Tape Drive

The IBM TotalStorage 3588 Tape Drive Model F3A is an IBM Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 3 Tape Drive designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage. The 3588 Tape Drive Model F3A is designed to mount in an IBM TotalStorage 3584 Tape Library and has a 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for attachment to IBM eServer p5 or pSeries, IBM eServer i5 or iSeries, IBM eServer xSeries, AS/400, RS/6000, HP, Sun, UNIX, and Intel servers.

The Ultrium 3 Tape Drive incorporates third-generation IBM LTO Ultrium technology. It offers the following significant improvements over the Ultrium 2 Tape Drive:

  • Maximum tape drive throughput data rate performance is more than doubled, up to 80 MB/sec native data transfer rate. Data tracks are now written 16 at a time. IBM Ultrium 3 Tape Drives can read and write, at eight data tracks at a time, LTO Ultrium 2 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 2 rates, and read LTO Ultrium 1 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 1 rates.

    Note: Although the 3588 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Also, although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.

  • The tape cartridge capacity is doubled over the Ultrium 2 Data Cartridge up to 400 GB native physical capacity (800 GB with 2:1 compression), with the use of the new IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 400 GB Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, the number of tape tracks, and the media length. The tape itself is an advanced metal particle tape developed to help provide durability and capacity.

  • Ultrium 2 cartridge compatibility - The Ultrium 3 Tape Drive can read and write on LTO Ultrium 2 Data Cartridges and can read LTO Ultrium 1 Data Cartridges.

  • 2-Gbps Fibre Channel attachment - The 3588 Model F3A comes with a 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. They are supported on AIX, OS/400, i5/OS, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Linux, and other open systems.

  • New dual stage 16 channel head actuator - designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity.

  • New independent tape loader and threader motors and positive pin retention - designed to help improve the reliability of loading and unloading a cartridge, and to retain the pin even if tension is dropped. With an independent loader motor coupled with the positive pin retention, the tape threads with a higher level of reliability.

  • Larger internal data buffer - There is a 128 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 3 Tape Drive as compared to a 64 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 2 Tape Drive or a 32 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 1 Tape Drive.

  • Highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology - designed to reduce the total number of components in the drive, lower chip temperatures, and reduce power requirements, helping to provide for a more reliable drive. The generation 3 drive electronics are also designed to provide "on-the-fly" error correction capability for soft errors in the memory arrays in data and control paths.

  • Graceful dynamic braking - In the event of power failure, reel motors are designed to maintain tension and gradually decelerate instead of stopping abruptly, helping reduce tape breakage, stretching, or loose tape wraps during a sudden power-down.

Proven IBM LTO Ultrium features enhanced in IBM LTO Ultrium 3 Tape Drive include:

  • Servo and track layout technology - There are 704 data tracks in Ultrium 3 verses 512 data tracks in Ultrium 2 and 384 data tracks in Ultrium 1. 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 vibe environments.

  • Surface Control Guiding Mechanism - IBM's patented Surface Control Guiding Mechanism is designed to guide the tape along the tape path in the IBM Ultrium Tape Drive. This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This helps reduce tape damage (especially to the edges of the tape) and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and can accumulate in the head area.

  • Magneto Resistive (MR) head design - Use of flat lap head technology in MR heads helps minimize contact, debris accumulation, and wear on the tape as it moves over the read/write heads.

  • Digital speed matching - The Ultrium 3 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching (at one of five speeds, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 MB/sec) to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching on Ultrium 3 ranges from 40 to 80 MB/sec versus 17.5 to 35 MB/sec on Ultrium 2.

  • Robust drive components optimized for automation environments - Drive designed using some of the most robust components available, such as: 1) all metal clutch, 2) steel ball bearings in loader, 3) robust leader block design, 4) single circuit card, to help enhance reliability and prolong the life of the drive.

  • Power management - The power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or to be in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation.

  • Channel calibration: The channel calibration feature allows for customization of each read/write data channel to support optimum performance. The customization enables compensation for variations in the recording channel transfer function, media characteristics, and read/write head characteristics.

  • Adaptive read equalization - designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response.

  • Dynamic amplitude asymmetry compensation - designed to dynamically optimize readback signals for linear readback response from magneto resistive read head transducers.

  • Separate writing of multiple filemarks - Separate writing of multiple filemarks is designed to cause any write command of two or more filemarks to cause a separate data set to be written containing all filemarks after the first. This feature has two advantages. First, it helps improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark. Second, the write of multiple filemarks typically indicates a point where an append operation might occur after the first of these filemarks. This change helps prevent having to rewrite datasets containing customer data and the first filemark in cases if such an append occurs.

  • LTO Data Compression (LTO-DC) - The IBM Ultrium Tape Drives use LTO-DC which is an implementation of a Lempel-Ziv class 1 (LZ-1) data compression algorithm. LTO-DC is an extension of Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) and an improvement over previous IBM lossless compression algorithms. IBM's patented "Scheme-Swapping" compression is designed to look ahead at incoming data, and determine the most efficient storage method (either ALDC or pass-thru mode) to help provide optimal data compression and increased data throughput.

  • LTO Cartridge Memory (LTO-CM) - Contained within the LTO Ultrium data cartridge is the LTO-CM, which is a passive, contactless silicon storage device that is physically a part of the cartridge. The LTO-CM is used to hold information about that specific cartridge, the media in the cartridge, and the data on the media. The storage capacity of the LTO-CM is 4,096 bytes. Communication between the drive and the LTO-CM is via a low-level RF field transmitted by the drive to the cartridge.

  • Statistical Analysis and Reporting System (SARS) - The IBM Ultrium Tape Drives use SARS to help isolate failures between media and hardware. The SARS use the cartridge performance history saved in the CM module and the drive performance history kept in the drive flash EEPROM to help determine the more likely cause of failure. SARS can cause the drive to request a cleaner tape, to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded.

With support for LTO Ultrium-format tape data cartridges, the 3588 Tape Drive with the 3584 Tape Library can be a cost-effective solution for backup, save-and-restore, and archiving functions.

Ultrium 2 Tape Drive

The Ultrium 2 Tape Drive offers the following significant improvements over the Ultrium 1 Tape Drive:

  • Maximum tape drive performance is more than doubled, up to 35 MB/sec native data transfer rate (70 MB/sec with 2:1 compression) when using the Ultrium 200 GB Data Cartridge. IBM Ultrium 2 Tape Drives can read and write original LTO Ultrium Data Cartridges at original Ultrium 1 capacities and with improved performance up to 20 MB/sec native data transfer rate (40 MB/sec with 2:1 compression).

  • The tape cartridge capacity is doubled up to 200 GB native capacity (400 GB with 2:1 compression), with the use of the Ultrium 200 GB Data Cartridge.

High-performance LTO Ultrium Tape Cartridge

The tape cartridge capacity of the IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 400 GB Data Cartridge has doubled over the IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 2 Data Cartridge to 400 GB native capacity (800 GB with 2:1 compression). The Ultrium 2 Data Cartridge has a 200 GB native capacity (400 GB with 2:1 compression) and the Ultrium 1 Data Cartridge has a 100 GB native capacity (200 GB with 2:1 compression). IBM LTO Ultrium 3 Tape Drives can read and write Ultrium 2 data cartridges, and read Ultrium 1 data cartridges. IBM LTO Ultrium 2 Tape Drives can read and write original Ultrium 1 data cartridges. Ultrium 3 Tape Drives and cartridges can be resident in the same 3584 Tape Library frame with Ultrium 1 or 2 Tape Drives and data cartridges.

LTO Ultrium data cartridges have been designed to provide several enhancements over previous tape technologies. They are designed to work with tape drives that have increased tape speeds and high-density data recording. The case is specially designed for use in automated libraries and is designed for repeated, unattended, trouble-free handling. The tape itself is an advanced metal particle tape developed for durability and capacity. The 3584 Tape Library supports the use of Ultrium 1, Ultrium 2, Ultrium 3, and 3592 data cartridges within the same library.

The IBM 3584 Tape Library is a high-performance, reliable, linear scalable tape library subsystem, designed for tape automation. Tape drives in the 3584 Tape Library can be attached to i5, iSeries, AS/400, p5, pSeries, RS/6000, xSeries, Netfinity, Sun, Hewlett-Packard, and other open systems servers.

The Model D52 uses IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives with Fibre Channel interfaces for fast data transfer and reliability in automated library service. Each aspect of the library subsystem has been optimized for repeated, dependable unattended tape handling. The optimized dual gripper accessor moves cartridges within the library and the tape drives. The IBM LTO Ultrium tape drives have been refined using the many years of IBM tape experience to provide extremely fast data transfer and reliable automated handling.

The IBM LTO Ultrium 3 Tape Drives in the 3584 Model D52 have sustained data rates of up to 80 MB/sec native (up to 160 MB/sec at 2:1 compression). The tape capacity of the LTO Ultrium 3 cartridge is 400 GB per cartridge in native format, and using LTO-DC (LTO Data Compression) (2:1) compression is 800 GB. Tape capacity of the LTO Ultrium 2 cartridge is 200 GB per cartridge in native format, and using LTO-DC (LTO Data Compression) (2:1) compression is 400 GB. Tape capacity of the LTO Ultrium 1 cartridge is 100 GB per cartridge in native format, and using LTO-DC (LTO Data Compression) (2:1) compression is 200 GB.

The Model D52 can contain 396 to 440 cartridge slots, with an incremental reduction of capacity for each set of four tape drives installed. Data capacity with Ultrium 3 data cartridges is 158 to 176 TB in native mode and 316 to 352 TB in compressed (2:1) mode. The Model D52 supports plant or field installation of up to twelve Fibre Channel attached IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives.

The IBM 3584 Tape Library can have up to 192 tape drives and can be configured to have up to 192 control paths and up to 192 logical libraries. The library contains the electronics and logic for autochanger operations. Each IBM LTO Ultrium tape drive contains the electronics and logic for reading and writing data, control of the tape drive, management of the data buffer, and error recovery procedures. The IBM 3584 Tape Library has its own power and cooling components.

Limitations

Although the compression technology can increase the amount of data stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.

Fibre Channel cable lengths are limited to 500 m (1640 ft.) at 1-Gbps and 300 m (990 ft.) at 2-Gbps.

LTO Ultrium data cartridges cannot reside in the same library frame with 3592 data cartridges.

Hardware Requirements

The 3584 Tape Library can be attached to i5, iSeries, p5, pSeries, xSeries, AS/400, RS/6000, RS/6000 SP systems, Netfinity, and non-IBM servers, workstations, and personal computers. The 3584 Tape Library Expansion Frame Model D52 takes less floor space than the Models D32. It comes with raven black covers, and has a look and feel consistent with other IBM TotalStorage products. The Model D52 can contain up to 12 IBM LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives per frame and each tape drive has a single-port Fibre Channel interface.

A current list of supported open system configurations for the IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drive is available from the following Web site:

http://www.ibm.com/servers/storage/tape/lto

  1. Select "Product details",

  2. Then select "LTO compatibility", and under the "Compatibility information" you can view the supported servers and operating system information for the product.

The cartridge storage capacity of the Model L22 or L52 can be expanded by enabling the Capacity On Demand (COD) features in that frame. The Full Capacity Storage feature (#1642 or #1644) is required on a 3584 Model L22 or L52 to attach the optional Expansion Frame Model D52.

When the 3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1 is attached to a 3584 Tape Library, the following feature must be ordered on the 3584 Model D22 or D52 Frame to provide the second accessor:

  • 1440 - Service Bay B Configuration and Dual Accessor

When this feature is ordered on Model D22 or D52, that Model D22 or D52 Frame will now be reserved and function as Service Bay B for the second accessor. It will not be available for customer tape drives or cartridges. This feature should initially be ordered on a new Model D22 or D52 Frame that is added to the 3584 Tape Library with the order of the Model HA1. As subsequent frames are added to the 3584 Tape Library the last frame in the library will function as the actual Service Bay B. The feature number 1440 does not need to be moved to the last frame in the library, but needs to be on one frame in the library with a Model HA1. If you order a second accessor (by ordering #1440 on a Model D22 or D52), you must also order a 3584 High Availability Frame Model HA1 (as the Service Bay A). If a Model HA1 is present in a 3584 Tape Library, there must also be a minimum of two Model Dxx Frames attached to the library (one of which will function as the Service Bay B).

When a 3584 Model HA1 is installed in a 3584 Tape Library, the following feature numbers must be present on one 3584 Model Dxx in that library (other that the one used as a Service Bay B):

  • 1453 - Frame Control Assembly (or feature number 1452 if the frame is a Model D32)

  • 1902 - Additional Power Supply (one is required, but it is recommended that two of these be present for redundancy)

It is also recommended that the Dual AC Power feature (#1901) be installed on the Model Lxx and Dxx Frames in a 3584 Tape Library containing a Model HA1.

Each 3584 Tape Library configuration containing a Model HA1 requires a different set of X-Track cables for the dual accessors in the library, depending on the total number of frames in that 3584 Tape Library. The following feature number must be ordered on the Model Lxx every time the number of attached frames is changed (either added or removed) in a 3584 Tape Library that has a Model HA1:

  • 1840 - Change HA X-Track Cable

This feature number will enable the proper X-Track cables to be shipped based on the presence of feature number 9040 and the quantity of feature number 9003 on the Model Lxx Frame.

Note: Feature number 1840 is not required with the first installation of a Model HA1. It is only required when the number of attached frames is changed after the installation of the Model HA1.

In a 3584 Tape Library without an attached Model HA1 and the total number of frames in the 3584 library coming from the plant is going to number 8 to 14 frames (7 to 13 Expansion Frames), the 7-14 Frame X-Track Cable will be shipped with the library unless the 8-16 Frame X-Track Cable feature (#9316) is specified on the Model L22 or L52. The 8-16 Frame X-Track Cable feature (#9316) must be specified on the Model L22 or L52 if there will be a total of 15 or 16 frames (14 or 15 Expansion Frames) in the 3584 library without a Model HA1.

When frames are added to a 3584 Tape Library without an attached Model HA1 as a field upgrade, a new X-Track Cable may be required according to the following table of total installed frames:

Installed       New       X-Track Cable
Frame Qty    Frame Qty    feature number required
---------    ---------    ----------------------------
 1 - 2         3 - 6      1806
 1 - 6           7        1814
 1 - 6         8 - 14     1814 or 1816
 1 - 14       15 - 16     1816 (if 9316 not installed)
 

When frames are removed from a 3584 Tape Library without an attached Model HA1 as a field upgrade, a new X-Track is required according to the following:

Installed       New       X-Track Cable
Frame Qty    Frame Qty    feature number required
---------    ---------    -----------------------------
 8 - 16          7        1814 (if 9316/1816 installed)
 7 - 16        3 - 6      1806
 3 - 16        1 - 2      1802
 

3584 Model D52

The 3584 Tape Library Model D52 can contain a maximum of 12 IBM LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives per frame (for a total of up to 192 Ultrium Tape Drives in a 16 frame library). The IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drives in the Model D52 have a Fibre Channel interface for either point-to-point or Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop attachment. An LTO Fibre Drive Mounting Kit feature (#1504) is required for installing a Fibre IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Drive in a drive slot.

IBM LTO Ultrium 3 drive integration is accomplished with the 3588 Ultrium Tape Drive Model F3A. For detailed information on the 3588 Tape Drive, refer to the 3588 sales manual. The 3588 Tape Drives can be installed and intermixed within the same frame with other IBM LTO Ultrium 1 or 2 Tape Drives.

The 3588 Tape Drives have a 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for either point-to-point or Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop attachment. The 3588 Tape Drive Model F3A must be ordered separately, and is designed for customer setup in the 3584 Tape Library. One of the following features should be ordered on the 3584 Frame into which a 3588 Model F3A Tape Drive will be installed:

  • 9678 - 3588 Drive Plant Install - one feature should be specified on both the 3588 Tape Drive and the 3584 Frame coming from the plant for each tape drive that will be installed in the 3584 Frame by the plant

  • 9679 - 3588 Drive Field Install - one feature should be specified on the 3584 Frame coming from the plant or ordered for an installed 3584 Frame for each tape drive that will be field installed in that 3584 Frame

The 3588 Model F3A is designed for customer setup. However, if the customer desires assistance with the field installation, the following feature can be ordered on the 3584 Frame (one feature for each drive that is needed):

  • 1678 - 3588 Field Install Assist

Customer-owned 3588 Tape Drives or 3588 Tape Drives removed from a 3584 library frame can be installed in another 3584 Frame. If assistance is desired to remove the 3588 Tape Drive, order the Drive Removal feature (#1663).

The Fibre Channel IBM LTO Ultrium 2 Tape Drive is chosen with the following feature number:

  • 1479 - LTO Ultrium 2 Fibre Drive Canister - which includes one IBM LTO Ultrium 2 Tape Drive with a Fibre Channel interface

If support for an IBM LTO Ultrium 2 LVD SCSI Drive is required, then an RPQ request should be submitted.

The LTO Ultrium 2 Fibre Drive Canister feature (#1479) can be removed by ordering the Drive Removal feature (#1663), and reinstalled in another frame with the LTO Ultrium Drive Reinstall feature (#1665). An LTO Fibre Drive Mounting Kit feature (#1504) is required for installing an IBM LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drive in a drive slot in a Model D52 or L52. An LTO Fibre Drive Move Kit feature (#1501) is required for moving an IBM LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drive Canister feature (#1479) to a drive slot in a Model D32 or L32.

If a drive feature is not ordered on the Model D52 or L52, then the following feature number must be specified on that Model D52 or L52:

  • 9001 - Driveless Frame

A power cord feature number, if applicable, should also be specified. A power cord cannot be ordered or supplied on a Model D52 unless the Frame Control Assembly feature (#1453) is present.

Labeled or bulk quantities of LTO cartridges can be ordered using machine type 3589 or purchased through distributors. Refer to the Supplies section for additional information.

Note: The 3584 requires that cartridges have appropriate bar code labels.

Cables

Cables are required to attach tape drives in the 3584 Tape Library to each server connection (up to the number of tape drive attachments installed). An interposer may also be required for attachment to various server adapters. If no host attachment cables are required to be shipped with 3584 frame from the plant, then the No Host Cables From Plant feature (#9700) should be specified on the frame. Otherwise, one or more of the following Fibre Channel cables should be specified on the frame.

Fibre Channel cables

A Fibre Channel cable is required to attach a LTO Ultrium 3 Fibre Channel Tape Drive (3588 Model F3A), LTO Ultrium 2 Fibre Drive Canister (#1479), or 3592 Tape Drive, in the 3584 Tape Library 3584 via the Fibre Channel patch panel feature (#1462), to host Fibre Channel adapters, the IBM 2109 SAN Fibre Switch, or other Fibre Channel components. The cable can be customer supplied, or ordered with the 3584 Tape Library in the lengths shown. The attaching Fibre Channel cable must be a 50.0/125 micrometer short wavelength fiber-optic cable. These tape drives come with LC Duplex connectors. One LC-LC Fibre Channel drive-to-patch panel cable is included with each Fibre Mounting Kit (#1503 or #1504).
