IBM® System Storage® Linear Tape File System (LTFS) Library Edition V2.1 enables read, write, search, and indexing of user metadata, as well as access to the user data.

Metadata is the descriptive information about user data stored on a cartridge, and it enables searching and accessing of files via the graphical user interface of the operating system. With graphic search, read, and write, it can be easier to write and read files using LTFS Library Edition as compared to using traditional tape management software.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: YE001).

Overview
Bottom rule

IBM LTFS Library Edition extends the capability of the IBM LTFS File Manager Single Drive Edition to the IBM System Storage TS2900 and TS3310 systems. LTFS Library Edition enables mounting of the library as a file system and indexing of LTO data, while the file manager manages the automation and provides operating system level access to all the content in the library. LTFS Library Edition is based on the LTFS format specification, enabling tape library cartridges to be 100% interchangeable with cartridges written with the open source, single drive versions of LTFS.

IBM LTFS Library Edition supports selected IBM tape library systems. This LTFS Library Edition software is required to be installed on customer server supporting RedHat Enterprise Linux® R5.5 with connection and support of selected IBM tape libraries.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM LTFS Library Edition extends the capability of the IBM LTFS file manager Single Drive edition to the TS2900 and TS3310 systems. With LTFS Library Edition, LTO data stored in these tape libraries can be indexed for ease of use. LTFS Library Edition enables mounting of the library as a file system, while the file manager manages the automation and provides operating system-level access to all the content in the library. LTFS Library Edition is based on the LTFS format specification, so tape library cartridges are 100% interchangeable with cartridges written with the open source, single drive versions of LTFS.

Product positioning
Bottom rule

With LTFS, accessing data stored on an IBM tape cartridge is as easy and intuitive as using a USB flash drive. With LTFS and the operating system's graphical file manager, reading data on a tape cartridge is as easy as dragging and dropping. Any application designed for disk files can be treated as tape data without concern for the fact that the data is physically stored on tape.

IBM LTFS Library Edition adds support for IBM tape automation in addition to the single drive-use LTFS. Library Edition provides the ability to create a single file system mount point for a logical library managed by a single instance of LTFS, running on a single computer system. In addition, it provides for caching of tape indices in memory and for searching, querying, and displaying tape contents within an IBM tape Library without the requirement to mount tape cartridges.

Since the invention of disk storage, tape has been viewed as complex and difficult to use since it has required tape device specific software to read, write, and manage data stored on tape cartridges in tape libraries. Even with tape management software, file access was not intuitive since it required knowledge of what cartridge volume contained the file you needed. The standard disk interfaces of operating systems did not enable direct reading and writing to tape cartridges stored in tape libraries. Operating systems were not typically shipped with 'built-in' tape library support.

IBM recognizes that in order to be an attractive, more widely usable storage medium, tape must be as easy to use as other storage media, such as disk and removable flash media. This requires a file system interface that behaves like disk with the flash drive-like ability to share data without regard to platform. Designed to meet these needs, LTFS Library Edition offers:

  • The ability to manage scheduling and accessing tape cartridges in multiple drives
  • The ability to recognize the cartridges in a library at library mount time and create a file system directory (under the Library) for each cartridge in the library
  • The ability to pre-populate the file system directories for the cartridge with information from the cached index at library mount time, allowing for listing and searching of the contents of all known tape cartridges without having to physically load each cartridge into a tape drive

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.
