Abstract: This paper provides performance information for the IBM TS7720, TS7740, and TS7720T, which are the three current products in the TS7700 family of products. This paper is intended for use by IBM field personnel and their customers in designing virtual tape solutions for their applications. This is an update to the previous TS7700 paper dated March 12, 2014 and reflects changes for release 3.2, which introduces the TS7720T. TS7720T supports the ability to connect a TS3500 library to a TS7720. TS7720T can do the function of a TS7720 or TS7740 depending on the target partition specified in the customer’s workload. Up to 8 partitions could be defined in a TS7720T, namely CP0 through CP7. When workload targets CP0, the TS7720T behaves as a TS7720. When workload targets CPn (n = 1 through 7), the TS7720T behaves as a TS7740.
