Model abstract 3592-C07

The IBM 3592 Tape Controller Model C07 can be ordered with integrated library management functionality. This replaces the need for a separate 3953-L05 Library Manager. For high availability, the first two Model C07 controllers that are connected to a common TS3500 logical library will both have the library management feature. This will allow library activity to continue during code loads and outages on any single controller. To reduce the need for software updates, the library management interface to the System z server will remain unchanged for this functionality.

Description

Top rule

The Tape Controller Model C07 has many of the reliability and availability characteristics that the prior TS1120 Tape Controller Model C06 offered, such as redundant power supplies with automatic failover and hot swap capabilities, redundant cooling, and support for the IBM TS3000 System Console (TSSC) mandatory attachment, previously known as the IBM TotalStorage Service Console (TSSC). The Tape Controller Model C07 also includes application performance and capacity enhancements that are available with the TS1120 Tape Controller Model C06, such as capacity scaling commands. The effect of capacity scaling is to potentially reduce the average locate time to a random record (from load point) to as little as 30% of the normal locate time.

IBM System Storage Tape Controller Model C07 is a follow-on to the highly successful IBM TS1120 Tape Controller Model C06. It is designed for System z environments that require a high-performance tape solution. These environments include:

  • High-speed data save operations where backup windows are critical and large amounts of data are archived to tape
  • Large-scale automated tape environments where performance and reliability are required. These are primarily half-inch tape drive environments
  • Large-scale mass data archive applications where massive amounts of data need to be quickly saved to tape for storage and later recalled. Examples include the seismic industry, data warehousing, and record management applications

Tape Controller Model C07 helps address the growing needs of both new and existing IBM tape customers across a wide range of environments. Advantages of the Ts1140 Tape Drive Model E07 and TS1130 Tape Drive Model E06 with Tape Controller Model C07 compared to previous IBM tape offerings include:

  • Higher performance to reduce the number of tape drives required
  • Larger capacity to reduce the number of cartridges required and floor space needed
  • High reliability to help improve operations

FICON attachment

The Tape Controller Model C07 supports up to four 4-Gbps FICON attachments. Tape Controller Model C07 is designed to be directly attached to host systems up to 10 kilometers away, or up to 100 kilometers with a FICON/FC switch with appropriate repeaters.

In order to exploit the improved performance of the Tape Controller Model C07 and TS1140 Tape Drive Model E07, there must be a 4-Gbps or 8-Gbps Fibre Channel infrastructure. This includes drive attachment via the 8-Gbps Fibre Channel Switch feature, and 4-Gbps or 8-Gbps capability on the System z server or Fibre Channel Director.

Drive attachment

The Tape Controller Model C07 must be ordered with two dual-ported Fibre Channel adapters. Up to four 3592 Tape Drives may be directly attached to Tape Controller Model C07. Attaching more than four 3592 Tape Drives to Tape Controller Model C07 requires the use of a Fibre Channel switch. Refer to Technical information for more specific switch requirements.

Capacity scaling

The 3592 Tape Drive attached to a Tape Controller Model C07 is designed to allow an application to issue a command to scale an individual tape cartridge to 20% of its possible capacity. The effect of capacity scaling is to potentially reduce the average locate time to a random record (from load point) to as little as 30% of the normal locate time.

For details on the application performance and capacity enhancements, including capacity scaling, refer to the IBM System Storage 3592 Model E07 Tape Drive Information Center:

http:/publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/jagdrive/cust /index.jsp

Note: The actual throughput achieved is a function of many components, such as system processor, disk data rate, data block size, data compressibility, I/O attachments, SAN, and the system or application software being used. Although the TS1140 Tape Drive is capable of up to a 250 MB/sec native data rate, other components may limit the actual effective data rate.

TS3000 System Console

The TS3000 System Console provides enhanced remote support to improve availability and is required to support Tape Controller Model C07. The TS3000 System Console can remotely monitor each attached device to determine if it is working properly and report any error alerts for early detection of problems. Use of the TS3000 may expedite microcode updates, reduce service times, and enhance local service. Feature number 2732, is the TS3000 System Console and replaces feature number 2720, Master Console for Service. The TS3000 System Console (feature number 2732) replaces the Master Console for Service (feature number 2720). Console Expansion (feature number 2714) and Console Attachment (feature number 2715) provide the same functions with the TS3000 System Console that were provided with the Master Console for Service.
