System Storage TS2230 Tape Drive
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.
