IBM 3592-E07 TS 1140 Tape Drive

Condition : Refurbished

With its higher performance and greater capacity as compared to TS1130 Tape Drive Model E06, the use of the TS1140 Tape Drive can help save costs as the number of tape drives, cartridges, and associated floor space are all reduced. Enhancements of the TS1140 Tape Drive include:

  • Native data rate performance of up to 250 MB/sec (up to 650 MB/sec compressed) versus the 160 MB/sec native data rate of TS1130 Tape Drive Model E06
  • Uncompressed cartridge formatting of up to 4.0 TB (12.0 TB with 3:1 compression) with the use of IBM Tape Cartridge 3592 Advanced Data (Type C)
  • Dual Fibre Channel interface at 8 Gbps designed to enhance attachment flexibility
  • Effective media reuse with capacity to read and write up to N-1 generation media
  • Encryption capabilities designed to work with the IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager
  • Small form factor to help improve space efficiency of tape infrastructure
  • High availability design

The high reliability of the 3592 tape drive and media is maintained and improved with these features:

  • Giant Magneto Resistive (GMR) 32-channel head technology
  • Media partitioning capability setting the grounds for improved data management on tape
  • Virtual backhitch improvements for increased performance avoids the backhitch of the tape

The IBM 3592 System Storage TS1140 Tape Drive Model E07 is the fourth generation of the highly successful IBM 3592 Enterprise Tape Drive. It is supported for integration in the IBM System Storage TS3500 Tape Library or racks that enable stand-alone installations.

The TS1140 Tape Drive is designed to provide higher levels of performance, reliability, and cartridge capacity than the TS1130 Model E06 Tape Drive. It has a high-technology 32-channel GMR head design and provides a native data rate performance of up to 250 MB/sec versus the 160 MB/sec data rate of the TS1130 Tape Drive Model E06. The TS1140 E07 Tape Drive has a dual-port 8-Gbps Fibre Channel interface for Fibre Channel attachment to host systems or a switched fabric environment.

With the use of the IBM Tape Cartridge 3592 Advanced Data (Type C), TS1140 Model E07 can format a cartridge uncompressed up to 4.0 TB (12.0 TB with 3:1 compression). TS1140 E07 is designed for automation and uses a tape cartridge with a form factor similar to other 3592 tape cartridges, allowing it to be used in the IBM TS3500 Tape Library.

The TS1140 Tape Drive also supports drive-based data encryption to help protect your data. The TS1140-based encryption and associated IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager component are supported in a wide variety of operating system environments, including IBM Power, IBM System i, IBM System x, IBM System p, HP-UX, Oracle, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. Application, System, or Library Managed encryption management methods are supported. The encryption capability is supported when the TS1140 Tape Drive is integrated or attaches to selected IBM supported tape libraries, subsystems, or controllers.
