Abstract

The IBM TS2270 Tape Drive (machine type 3580 model H7S) is the newest external, stand-alone or rack mountable unit, designed to offer high capacity and performance for the midrange systems environment. The TS2270 incorporates the IBM Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 7 Half-High SAS Tape Drive and is designed to support LTO Generation 7 media specification native data rate performance of up to 300 MB/sec compared to the IBM TS2260 LTO Half-High tape drive (Ultrium 6) of up to 160 MB/sec native data transfer rate. The TS2270 tape drive supports the LTO Generation 7 specifications for LTO tape drive technology, and LTO Generation 7 media to a compressed capacity of up to 15 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression (up to 6 TB native capacity) compared to previous LTO 6 compressed capacity of up to 6.25 TB with 2.5:1 compression (up to 2.5 TB native capacity) per tape cartridge. The TS2270 can read and write to Ultrium 7 and Ultrium 6 cartridges, and is read compatible with Ultrium 5 data cartridges. The Ultrium 7 tape drive is encryption-capable and designed to support application-managed encryption.

The TS2270 tape drive uses a 6 Gbps dual-port SAS interface for connection to a wide spectrum of system servers, including select IBM Power Systems models, IBM Pureflex systems, and IBM BladeCenters. The TS2270 also supports Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, and UNIX operating systems.

The following IBM TS2270 Half-High LTO Ultrium 7 tape drive enhancements are designed to help improve performance, capacity, and reliability:

  • Native LTO Generation 7 media specification data transfer rate of up to 300 MB/sec
  • LTO Generation 7 media specification tape cartridge native capacity support of 6 TB and compressed capacity of up to 15 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression
  • 6 Gbps SAS attachment support
  • A 1 GB internal buffer
  • Application-managed encryption support for half-high LTO Generation 7 SAS tape drive
  • 16 KB cartridge memory with Ultrium 7 media
  • Half-high drive form factor
  • Two SAS ports per drive for improved availability and attachability

The enclosure width enables two TS2270 storage units to be mounted side by side in a 19-inch IBM server rack mount shelf kit, requiring 2U of rack space.

The TS2270 tape drive provides an excellent migration path from digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT), 1/4 in (QIC), 4 mm (DAT), 8 mm, or older LTO generation tape drives.

Other media forms like disk have never really replaced tape in most data centers. Instead, tape has continued to be number one for storage archival, and thanks to continued improvement in tape technology, tape is taking a more prominent role in a data center for both backup and archive. LTO tape is high capacity and performance, very reliable, and still the lowest priced save/restore solution on the market today.
