Today, data is a key corporate asset in all types of businesses. The ability to access data quickly and reliably is critical to your success. Whether your business utilizes a high-performance network server or individual workstations, archiving and retrieving data in a dependable and consistent manner is mission critical.

The IBM System Storage™ TS2230 Tape Drive Express LTO3 HH Model—the entry-level IBM System Storage tape product family offering—is the answer to growing storage requirements and shrinking backup windows. By leveraging advanced Linear Tape-Open technology and the half-high format, the TS2230 Tape Drive is suited for handling the backup, save and restore, and archival data storage needs of a wide range of small systems.

The System Storage TS2230 Tape Drive Express LTO3 HH Model is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup or low-cost, real-time archival of their data within a small window of time. The TS2230 has a storage capacity of up to 800 GB (with 2:1 compression) in conjunction with the IBM TotalStorage® LTO Ultrium 400 GB data cartridge, which is double the capacity of the Ultrium 2™ technology. Along with its higher capacity, the performance of the TS2230 Tape Drive has more than doubled over the previous generation of half-high LTO drives in the market for a native data transfer rate of up to 60 MBps. The TS2230 Tape Drive provides an excellent alternative to slower and smaller capacity 1/4-inch, 4 mm and 8 mm DLT/SDLT tape drives.

Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
