The IBM® TS3100 Tape Library and its storage management applications are designed to exceed your capacity, performance, data protection, reliability, affordability and application requirements. The TS3100 is an excellent solution for large-capacity or high-performance tape backup with or without random access, as well as an excellent tape automation option for Lenovo System x servers and other open systems.
With the use of one LTO full-height tape drive or up to two LTO half-height tape drives and with a 24-tape cartridge capacity, the TS3100 leverages LTO technology to cost-effectively handle growing storage requirements. The TS3100 is configured with two removable cartridge magazines and the left magazine includes a single mail slot to help support continuous library operation while importing and exporting media. A bar code reader is standard in the library, supporting the library’s operation in sequential or random-access mode. The TS3100 also comes standard with remote management capabilities to allow for remote administration of the tape library through a web interface. Path Failover is an optional feature for this library designed to provide automatic control path failover to a preconfigured redundant control path in the event that a host adapter or control path drive is lost, without aborting the current job in process.
