IBM System Storage TS2240 Tape Drive Express Model

Highlights

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 utilises 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® TS2240 Tape Drive Express Model H4V—one of the entry-level IBM System Storage tape product family offerings—is the answer to growing storage requirements and shrinking backup windows. Incorporating the fourth generation of advanced Linear Tape-Open® (LTO®) technology, the TS2240 Tape Drive is suited for handling the backup, save and restore, and archival data storage needs of a wide range of small systems. In addition, the TS2240 provides up to 6 Gbps Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) connectivity and the security of LTO-based data encryption.

The System Storage TS2240 Tape Drive is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup or low-cost, real-time archival storage of their data. The TS2240, with a half-height form factor, offers the same high capacity of full-height LTO-4 tape drives. The TS2240 has a physical storage capacity of up to 1.6 TB (with 2:1 compression) in conjunction with the IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium® 800 GB data cartridge, which provides up to twice the capacity of Ultrium 3 cartridges. The native data transfer performance of the TS2240 Tape Drive has increased over the previous LTO half-height generation to up to 120 MB/sec. The TS2240 Tape Drive continues to provide an excellent alternative to slower and smaller capacity 1/4-inch, 4 mm and 8 mm digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT) drives.
