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. The main challenge for midmarket CIOs is how to cost-effectively store, archive and retrieve an explosion of new information, how to protect and secure that information, meet compliance requirements and make information accessible for business insight, where and when it’s needed.
The IBM System Storage™ TS2250 Tape Drive Express—the entry-level IBM System Storage tape product family offering—is the answer to growing storage requirements. Incorporating the latest generation of the industry-leading Linear Tape-Open™ (LTO™) technology, the TS2250 Tape Drive is suited for handling backup, save and restore, and archival data storage needs with higher capacity and higher data transfer rate than previous generation. In addition, the IBM Ultrium™ 5 technology is designed to support media partitioning, and the new IBM Long Term File System technology. It also continues to support encryption of data and WORM media.
