What IBM TS7700 can do for your business

IBM® TS7700 is a mainframe virtual tape solution that optimizes data protection and business continuance for IBM Z® data. TS7700 operates at disk speeds while maintaining compatibility with existing tape operations. IBM TS7700's grid communication facility provides access from any host to all data in the grid, supporting superior business continuance. The seventh generation, IBM TS7770 is built on IBM platforms, POWER9 processors, IBM FlashSystem 5030 disk cache, providing increased performance, denser disk capacity, as well as improving storage economics and data security in mission-critical hybrid multicloud environments.
