Description

The Ultrium tape format is the implementation of the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology that is designed to provide high capacity and performance with exceptional reliability in either a stand-alone or an automated environment. It uses a single-reel cartridge and is ideally suited for large volume backup, restore, and archive applications.

These models of the 3589 are available to be ordered with the IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge. The Ultrium 6 2.5 TB format, based on LTO technology, provides a tape cartridge capacity up to 2.5 TB native physical capacity (6.25 TB with 2.5:1 compression). These cartridges can be used in IBM Ultrium 6 Tape Drives, the sixth generation LTO Ultrium Tape Drive in the IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium family of products. You can choose from the following models:

  • Model 550 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge, labeled with starting volume serial information and optionally packed in individual jewel cases
  • Model 650 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge, packed in individual jewel cases with two nonattached blank labels
  • Model 570 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge, labeled with starting volume serial information and optionally packed in jewel cases, are designed to provide WORM storage on a 2.5 TB capacity cartridge
  • Model 670 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge, packed in jewel cases with two nonattached blank labels, are also designed to provide WORM storage on a 2.5 TB capacity cartridge

RFID labeled Ultrium 6 media is available as optional feature codes.

The 3589 Ultrium Tape Cartridge provides the ability to order prelabeled or bulk-packaged IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridges, IBM Ultrium Cleaning Cartridges, and IBM Ultrium 2.5 TB Tape Cartridges.

The 3589 models (550 and 650) and WORM Cartridges models (570 and 670) nearly double the tape cartridge capacity with up to 2.5 TB native capacity (6.25 TB with 2.5:1 compression). These cartridges can be used in IBM System Storage Ultrium 6 Tape Drives, the sixth generation LTO Ultrium Tape Drive in the IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium family of products:

  • Model 550 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridges in a 20-pack are labeled with starting volume serial information and optionally packed in individual jewel cases
  • Model 650 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridges in a 20-pack are optionally packed in individual jewel cases with two nonattached blank labels
  • Model 570 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB WORM Tape Cartridges in a 20-pack are labeled with starting volume serial information and optionally packed in individual jewel cases
  • Model 670 - IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB WORM Tape Cartridges in a 20-pack are optionally packed in individual jewel cases with two non-attached blank labels

Features of the IBM Ultrium 6 2.5 TB Data Cartridge include:

  • 2.5 TB native capacity in a single compact cartridge
  • Cartridge memory built into every data cartridge enhances functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed
  • Prelabeling with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and color-coding saves time and labor when adding new cartridges into your existing inventory
  • Shipping without jewel cases unless otherwise specified, when prelabeled cartridges are ordered

Note: For optimum reliability, use IBM 3589 Ultrium Tape Cartridges which conform to IBM specifications.

Technical description
TOC Link Physical specifications TOC Link Operating environment TOC Link Limitations
TOC Link Hardware requirements TOC Link Software requirements


  • Approximate cartridge dimensions: 4.1 x 4.0 x 0.8 in. (105 x 102 x 21 mm) (smaller than most existing single-reel tape cartridges). The total length of the media is 846 meters (2775.5 feet).
  • The single-hub design allows for the cartridge to be optimally packed with media. High capacity is further enhanced by the use of an LTO Technology data compression algorithm with two control modes to maximize compression efficiency.
  • LTO-CM is a noncontacting passive RF interface embedded in the cartridge which contains 16,320 bytes of non-volatile memory. Calibration information, manufacturers data, and information about initialization may stored in this memory area.
  • Dedicated Dual Servo Bands are pre-written on the tape during the tape cartridge manufacture process. If one servo element becomes defective, or if a portion of the servo code on the tape becomes corrupt, the head will continue to track as a result of the second "redundant" servo system.
  • Longitudinal Position words encoded within the servo frames allow efficient access to absolute locations down the length of the tape.
  • Data Integrity features include two levels of error correction that can provide recovery from longitudinal media scratches. Read-While-Write (RWW) capability allows real-time verification of written data.

Physical specifications

  • Width: 105 mm (4.1 in)
  • Depth: 102 mm (4.0 in)
  • Height: 21 mm (0.8 in)

To assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM industry-standard racks, review the installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment

  • Operating:
    • Temperature: 10 to 45 degrees C
    • Relative humidity: 10% to 80% non-condensing
    • Maximum wet bulb temperature : 26 deg C
  • Short Term Storage:
    • Temperature: 16 to 35 degrees C
    • Relative humidity: 20% to 80% non-condensing
    • Maximum wet bulb temperature : 26 deg C
  • Archival Storage:
    • Temperature: 16 to 25 degrees C
    • Relative humidity: 20% to 50% non-condensing
    • Maximum wet bulb temperature : 26 deg C
  • Shipping:
    • Temperature: -23 to 49 degrees C
    • Relative humidity: 5% to 80% non-condensing
    • Maximum wet bulb temperature : 26 deg C

The data recorded on the cartridge has an archive storage life of 30 years minimum with less than 5% loss in demagnetization, when the cartridge is stored at 16 degrees C to 25 degrees C, 20% to 50% non-condensing humidity and wet bulb temperature of 26 degrees C maximum.
