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™ TS2340 Tape Drive—the entry-level IBM System Storage tape product family offering—is the answer to growing storage requirements and shrinking backup windows. Incorporating the fourth generation of advanced Linear Tape-Open™ (LTO) technology, the TS2340 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 TS2340 provides added security features by supporting encryption of data with 3 Gbps SAS connectivity.

The IBM System Storage TS2340 Tape Drive is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup or low-cost, real-time archival storage of their data within a small window of time—it offers high capacity and performance to help address the most demanding requirements. The TS2340 has a physical storage capacity of up to 1.6 TB (with 2:1 compression) in conjunction with the IBM Ultrium™ 800 GB data cartridge, which provides up to double the capacity of previous Ultrium 3 technology. Along with its higher capacity, the data transfer performance of the TS2340 Tape Drive has increased over the previous generation for a native data transfer rate of up to 120 MBps. The TS2340 Tape Drive continues to provide an excellent alternative to slower and smaller capacity 1/4-inch, 4 mm and 8 mm DLT/SDLT tape drives
