Today’s enterprise data centers face unprecedented data protection challenges. They must satisfy increasing demands for data retention, security and availability while contending with reduced budgets. IBM® 3592 tape cartridges were developed to help enterprise data centers address these challenges.
With enterprise tape libraries holding thousands of cartridges, the affordability of keeping the technology current can be significantly impacted by the cost of upgrading the tape media. IBM 3592 tape cartridges support media reuse, which can help enterprise users mitigate the impact of a tape subsystem upgrade by enabling the drive to reformat prior generation media cartridges so they take on both the performance and capacity characteristics of the latest generation tape technology.
