    Outstanding solution


    The IBM TS2900 Tape Autoloader is designed for entry-level automated backup for rack system and small to midsize business environments. With a low-profile, high-density storage capacity, the TS2900 is ideally suited for backup and archival operations. The TS2900 is available with half-height LTO Ultrium 8, 7, 6 or 5 tape technology for a high-capacity, entry-priced tape storage solution.

    Advance features


    The TS2900 is equipped with standard features designed to provide ease-of-use and secured data backup. Web-based remote management, a bar code reader and a removable tape magazine help provide ease of use. The TS2900 can be used in a rack system or on a desktop next to a server in an office. These types of features help reduce the amount of required IT personnel, as well as help centralize backups in the data center. The TS2900 is also designed to support the encryption of sensitive user data in combination with half-height LTO Ultrium 8, 7, 6 or 5 tape technology. With a 6 Gbps serial-attached SCSI (SAS) interface, the TS2900 is supported on IBM System x®, Intel and other competitor open-system server platforms.

    The TS2900 Tape Autoloader has a nine-data-slot cartridge capacity for a total storage capacity of up to 270 TB with 2.5:1 compression, as well as a single I/O station designed to provide undisturbed library operation when extracting or inserting data cartridges. The TS2900 utilizes one half-height LTO Ultrium drive—generation 8, 7, 6, or 5. The TS2900 is shipped as a rack-mount unit with the option of a desktop conversion kit.

    Half-height LTO Ultrium 8 tape drives are designed to read and write data at a transfer rate of up to 300 MBps and store up to 12TB native on a single LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridge (30 TB with 2.5:1 compression). LTO Ultrium 8 technology is designed with the ability to read and write data to LTO Ultrium 7 data cartridges, thus helping to protect current investments in LTO Ultrium cartridges.
