Description

The TS3310 Tape Library is an excellent choice, if you are:

  • Experiencing growth in online storage requirements
  • Considering a tape automation solution for your data storage needs
  • Considering an Ultrium tape solution

The IBM System Storage TS3310 Tape Library is designed to offer high performance, capacity, and technology to help address the heavy demands of tape storage. The TS3310 Tape Library is highly modular with scalability varying from the base library 5U control module to additional expansion units of 9U height each. This automated tape library incorporates high-performance IBM LTO Ultrium 4 or Ultrium 3 Tape Drives for the midrange to enterprise open systems environment. Tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 800 GB native physical capacity (1,600 GB with 2:1 compression) with the new IBM LTO Ultrium 800 GB Data Cartridge (for use only with Ultrium 4 format drives), and drive performance is up to 120 MB/second native data transfer rate with the new IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drives. IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 3 data cartridges, and read LTO Ultrium 2 data cartridges. The LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drives in the TS3310 Tape Library also support LTO Ultrium 4 WORM cartridges.

IBM System Storage TS3310 Tape Library Model  L5B (3576 Model L5B)

The IBM System Storage Tape Library Model  L5B is the 5U base library unit, which contains the library control module, fixed tape cartridge storage of 30 slots, a configurable I/O station of 6 slots, a touchscreen display, cartridge handling robotics, and up to two LTO Ultrium 4 or Ultrium 3 Tape Drives.

IBM System Storage TS3310 Tape Library Model  E9U (3576 Model E9U)

The IBM System Storage Tape Library Model  E9U is an optional 9U expansion module that can be stacked on top of or below a base TS3310 L5B Tape Library. Each E9U expansion module can accommodate up to four LTO Ultrium 4 or Ultrium 3 drives, additional tape cartridge slots, and a configurable I/O station of 12 slots. Feature #1640, ordered against the Model L5B Tape Library, is a license key that enables the Model E9U Expansion Library to access the remaining (approximately) half of the cartridge slots and enables approximately half of the cartridge slots in the next Model E9U Expansion Library.

You can tailor the TS3310 Tape Library to match system physical capacity and performance needs of up to 24 TB (48 TB with 2:1 compression) in the base TS3310 L5B and up to 73.6 TB (147.2 TB with 2:1 compression) with each TS3310 E9U expansion module, using up to two IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drives in the TS3310 L5B Base Library and up to four Ultrium 4 Tape Drives in each TS3310 E9U tape module. Total library native physical capacity, with one L5B base library and four E9U expansion modules in a 41U form factor, is now up to 321.6 TB (643.2 TB with 2:1 compression) with Ultrium 4 drives and media. This is designed to provide enhanced functions such as fast transfer of data, simultaneous backup, concurrent read/write operations, and high fault tolerance.

The TS3310 Tape Library models support LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drives with 3 Gbps SAS or 4 Gbps switched fabric Fibre Channel for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. The TS3310 Tape Libraries attach to IBM System p, IBM System i, IBM System z, IBM System x, HP-UX, Sun, UNIX, Linux, and Windows servers.

In addition to LTO Ultrium 4 drive features, the TS3310 is designed to provide:

  • Support for Ultrium 4 media as well as Ultrium 4 WORM media
  • IBM's Multi-Path Architecture for single or multiserver attachment of homogeneous or heterogeneous systems or applications
  • Optional path failover function for both control paths and data paths
  • Standard bar code reader and remote management unit
  • Capacity on Demand expansion units
  • Support for a local user interface (UI) consisting of a color touchscreen
  • Free-standing library or with optional rack mounting in an industry-standard 19-inch rack
  • Support for encryption management methods: Application Managed, System Managed, and Library Managed (System Managed and Library Managed Encryption is available through the Transparent LTO Encryption feature.)

The TS3310 Tape Library is suitable for use in network attached storage implementations, such as backups and mass storage archives where multiterabyte capacities are required. Storage and tape management for the TS3310 is provided by software such as Tivoli® Storage Manager and other compatible software offerings.

Each TS3310 Tape Library has an operator control panel with a touchscreen display on the front of the machine, providing status information and menu options. From this panel, the operator can initiate actions, such as moving and loading tape cartridges or invoking diagnostics. A key lock provides front door locking.

The TS3310 is designed for standalone operation, but an optional rack-mounting kit allows installation into an ANSI/EIA standard 19-inch rack. If you require extra redundancy in your storage operations, an additional DC power supply option is available. A Remote Manager Unit is designed to allow network control of the TS3310 Tape Library operations.

The IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drive supports the Ultrium 800 GB Data Cartridge, designed for increased tape speeds and high-density data recording.

Ultrium 4 Tape Drives

The TS3310 Tape Library supports the IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drive. The IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drive is the fourth-generation LTO Ultrium tape drive in the IBM TotalStorage® LTO Ultrium family of products. The Ultrium 4 Tape Drives and Ultrium 4 cartridges can be resident in the same TS3310 Tape Library with Ultrium 3 tape drives, and with Ultrium 3 and Ultrium 2 data cartridges. The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive offers the following significant improvements over the Ultrium 3 Tape Drive:

  • Increased performance — Maximum tape drive throughput native data rate performance is up to 120 MB/sec. Data tracks are written 16 at a time. IBM Ultrium 4 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 3 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 3 capacities and rates, and read LTO Ultrium 2 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 2 capacities with improved rates.

    Note: Although the Ultrium 4 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.

  • Larger capacity — The tape cartridge physical capacity is doubled over the Ultrium 3 Data Cartridge, up to 800 GB native physical capacity (1,600 GB with 2:1 compression), with the use of the new IBM LTO Ultrium 800 GB Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density and the media length. The tape itself is an advanced metal particle tape developed to help provide durability and capacity.

  • Ultrium 3 cartridge compatibility — The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive can read and write Ultrium 3 cartridges.

  • Encryption supported on Ultrium 4 Fibre Channel and SAS tape drives — The IBM System Storage TS3310 Tape Library will support data encryption on the base drive with Ultrium 4 media meeting LTO consortium specifications and Application Managed Encryption. System Managed and Library Managed Encryption are supported with the Transparent LTO Encryption feature (feature #5900).

  • WORM media support — The IBM 3589 Ultrium 4 800 GB WORM Tape Cartridges are designed for applications such as archiving and data retention as well as those applications requiring an audit trail. These cartridges work with the IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drive to help prevent the alteration or deletion of user data. IBM Ultrium 800 GB WORM Tape Cartridges can be ordered as unique 3589 models with the following features:
    • Pre-labeling, with the ability to specify a starting volume serial number and color coding
    • Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk
    • Cartridge memory, built into every cartridge, which helps to enhance functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed
    • Half-inch particle tape with a 800 GB WORM native capacity in a single cartridge

  • Attachment options — The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive comes with 3 Gbps SAS, or native switched fabric 4 Gbps Fibre Channel attachments, for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. The dual-ported IBM LTO Ultrium 4 SAS Tape Drive comes with two Mini-SAS (SFF-8088) connectors. They are supported on IBM System p, IBM System i, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Linux, and other open systems.

  • Larger internal data buffer — There is a 256 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 4 Tape Drive as compared to a 128 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 3 Tape Drive.

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

Proven IBM LTO Ultrium features enhanced in the IBM LTO Ultrium 4 Tape Drive include:

  • Dual-stage 16-channel head actuator — The actuator is designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity.
  • Independent tape loader and threader motors and positive pin retention — These are designed to help improve the reliability of loading and unloading a cartridge, and to retain the pin even if tension is dropped. An independent loader motor, coupled with the positive pin retention, is designed to cause the tape to thread with a higher level of reliability.
  • 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 outage.
  • Servo and track layout technology — There are 704 data tracks in Ultrium 3 and Ultrium 4 versus 512 data tracks in Ultrium 2. The 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 vibration environments.
  • Surface Control Guiding Mechanism — IBM's patented Surface Control Guiding Mechanism is designed to guide the tape along the tape path in the Ultrium 4 Tape Drive. This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This results in less 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 for Ultrium 4 helps minimize contact, debris accumulation, and wear on the tape as it moves over the read/write heads.
  • Digital speed matching — The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching (at one of six speeds: 30, 48, 66, 84, 103, or 120 MB/sec) to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compression has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching on Ultrium 4 ranges from 30 to 120 MB/sec versus 30 to 80 MB/sec on Ultrium 3.
  • Robust drive components optimized for automation environments — 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 drives.
  • Power management — The Ultrium 4 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or go to a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation.
  • Adaptive read equalization — Designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response.
  • Dynamic amplitude asymmetry compensation — This is designed to optimize readback signals for linear readback response from MR 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 and second, 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 if such an append occurs.
  • LTO Data Compression (LTO-DC) — The Ultrium 4 uses 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 increase 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 8 KB. 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 Ultrium 4 Tape Drive uses SARS to help isolate failures between media and hardware. SARS uses the cartridge performance history, saved in the CM module, and the drive performance history, kept in the drive flash EEPROM, to help determine the most likely cause of failure. SARS is designed to cause the drive to request a cleaner tape, to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded.

Multi-Path support

The optional Multi-Path feature of the TS3310 Tape Library supports sharing of the library robotics. This is accomplished by partitioning the library into multiple logical libraries, and providing each logical library its own separate and distinct drives, storage slots, and control paths. You can partition the library into as many logical libraries as there are drives in the library. Each logical library must contain at least one drive.

Note: This type of partitioning is designed to allow 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.

Path failover

The TS3310 Tape Library may use the optional path failover feature to help enhance availability. 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 provided under various operating systems such as IBM System p, Linux, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and Windows for Fibre Channel attachments when the IBM tape device driver is used.

Data path failover and load balancing supports native Fibre Channel Ultrium 3 and 4 Tape Drives in the TS3310 Tape Library using the IBM tape device driver for IBM System p, Linux, Solaris, and Windows. Data path failover is designed to provide a failover mechanism in the IBM device driver, which is designed to enable 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 helps allow 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 is designed to automatically select a path through the host bus adapter (HBA) that has the fewest open tape devices, and assign 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, data path failover is designed to provide autonomic self-healing capabilities similar to control path failover, and is designed to failover to an alternate data path in the event of a failure in the primary host-side path. Data path failover and load balancing for Ultrium Tape Drives requires the optional path failover feature.

Capacity on Demand

The Capacity Expansion feature (#1640), ordered against the TS3310 Model L5B base library, allows a user to enable the unused storage slots within an expansion library via a firmware license key.

I/O station features

The I/O station can be defined as I/O slots or data storage, and the definition affects the number of cartridges available for data storage. Refer to the table below for the various combinations and resulting data capacities:
