Description:

The IBM 3584 TS3500 Tape Library is part of a family of tape library storage solutions designed for the large, unattended storage requirements from today's midrange to high-end systems.

Model abstract 3584-L23

The IBM 3584 TS3500 Tape Library Model L23 is a base frame designed for TS1120 or 3592 Tape Drives and 3592 data cartridges. The Model L23 base frame has 58 to 260 cartridge slots and support for up to 12 tape drives with an incremental reduction of storage slots for more than four drives or with the additional I/O station installed. This model has a smaller footprint than the Model L32. The TS3500 Tape Library Model L23 is designed with an optimized gripper for use with LTO or 3592 tape cartridges. Up to 12 logical libraries (one per tape drive) can be configured for each frame.

Each Model L23 library has a standard 16-slot cartridge I/O station for importing or exporting 3592 tape cartridges from the library without requiring a re-inventory. An additional 16-slot cartridge I/O is optionally available for either LTO or 3592 data cartridges. Libraries containing a mixture of LTO and 3592 drive technologies must have one LTO I/O station and one 3592 I/O station. For bulk loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. Each time the library door is closed, a bar code reader mounted on the autochanger is designed to scan the cartridge labels enabling a re-inventory of the cartridges in the library frame in as little as 60 seconds. A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library.

Highlights:

The TS3500 Tape Library combines IBM tape and automation reliability at open systems prices. These models expand capacity and function and are designed to provide the following enhancements:

  • Support for both IBM LTO Tape Drives and TS1120 Tape Drives (in separate frames)

  • Enhanced power architecture and frame control assembly

  • Expansion of the available physical storage capacity up to 9,390 TB (with 3:1 compression)

  • Intermix of the new models with installed TS3500 or 3584 libraries

  • Enhanced automation functionality with ALMS (feature code 1690 or 1692 is required with the TS3500 Tape Library Model L53 or L23 frames)

  • Lower-entry capacity configurations with capacity on demand (COD) level additions
