Description

Top rule

The TS4500 delivers the density needed for current and future business data growth with the cost efficiency and manageability to preserve existing investments in IBM tape library products. Now organizations can achieve both low cost per terabyte (TB) and a high TB density per square foot. The TS4500 can support up to 2.2 PB of native storage capacity in a single 10 square foot library frame, up to 3.4 times more capacity than the IBM TS3500.

The TS4500 offers deeper integration of tape drive and media management for a seamless, single pane of glass user experience. The TS4500 GUI is based on the IBM Storage Unified UI. The GUI is designed to lead the user directly to task completion and includes persistent, at-a-glance library utilization and health status indicators.

TS4500 features such as capacity on demand, automatic control-path and data-path failover, and support for tape drive encryption and WORM media are carried over from previous generations of industry-leading IBM tape libraries.

Automates solutions for open environments

TS4500 is an industry leader in tape drive integration with features such as a persistent worldwide name, multipath architecture, drive and media exception reporting, remote drive/media management, and host-based path failover. TS4500 L25, D25, and S25 frames support the TS1140 tape drive, and L55, D55, and S55 frames support LTO Ultrium 6 and 5 tape drives. L-frame and D-frame models support improved hot-swappable drive packaging. All of the frames include high-density (HD) slot technology that can significantly increase a library's total capacity.

Delivering more flexibility in the use of data centre floor space than previous versions, the new frame models can be placed in any active position so that the library can grow from both the right and the left side of the first L frame. The previous library allowed the addition of frames only to the right.

Available with top rack (Model TR1) option

The optional top rack offering can reduce the storage footprint and simplify cabling by providing 10U of rack space on top of the library for Fibre Channel switches, tape data movers, or LTFS nodes.

Delivers capacity on demand

The TS4500 library frame provides a more flexible upgrade path for users wanting to expand their tape storage as their needs grow. Capacity-on-demand configurations for TS4500 L-frame models include an entry-level configuration, an intermediate configuration, and a base-capacity configuration. All models also support HD capacity-on-demand configurations.

Includes advanced features

TS4500 is designed with a number of advanced features to deliver cutting-edge performance and long-term value. The ALMS feature supports dynamic storage management, enabling users to dynamically create and change logical libraries and configure any drive into any logical library. The TS4500 also offers automatic control-path and data-path failover to support improved business continuity and disaster recovery.

Centralizes management of tape resources

IBM offers a wide range of management software options for TS4500.

IBM TS4500 command line interface (CLI): Enables users to interact with the TS4500 with automated scripts to perform specific tasks.

IBM Tape System Library Manager: Enables clients to manage large tape environments that span multiple libraries as a single system.

IBM TS4500 is a highly scalable, stand-alone device that delivers high-density tape storage and high-performance, automated tape handling for open systems environments. IBM TS4500 tape library consists of a high-density base frame with up to three high-density expansion frames.

The TS4500 tape library is built from a single frame model, called the base frame. The scalability of the library allows an increase in capacity by adding up to three additional frames, called expansion frames. The frames join side by side and can grow to the left or to the right of the base frame. All frames are supported by a single cartridge accessor.

The TS4500 tape library supports second-generation HD (HD2) frames, which like the first generation HD frames, offer increased capacity without increasing frame size or required floor space by using high- density storage slots for tape cartridges. In addition, HD2 frames provide the following enhancements:

  • HD2 expansion frames can be installed in the leftmost position of the library (frame number 1)
  • Drive-capable HD2 frames support up to 16 HD2-compatible tape drives when positioned at frame number 2 or higher

Note: Non-HD2 frames cannot be upgraded to HD2 frames.

The L25 and L55 (Lx5) frames and D25 and D55 (Dx5) frames are HD2, drive-capable frames, meaning they contain HD cartridge storage slots, as well as slots to house up to sixteen tape drives. The S25 and S55 (Sx5) frames are HD2, storage-only frames, meaning they contain HD cartridge storage slots, but no tape drives. All HD frames provide internal LED lighting.
Note: The LED lighting in the HD frames is specifically designed for use only in the TS4500 tape library and is not suitable for other applications.

The TS4500 tape library supports IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium 6, TS1050 LTO Ultrium 5, and IBM TS1140 Tape Drives. I/O stations are located on Model L25 or L55 to facilitate tape loading and unloading.

The TS4500 tape library is designed to deliver an excellent network data backup/archive solution. With the granularity and scalability to follow your requirements from a few servers to hundreds of clients, from gigabytes to terabytes, this powerful pairing can grow with you, helping to protect your investment.

HD technology

The TS4500 tape library offers HD, drive-capable, and storage-only frame models that are designed to greatly increase storage capacity without increasing frame size or required floor space.

HD slots contain tape cartridges in a tiered architecture. The cartridge immediately accessible in the HD slot is a Tier 1 cartridge. Behind that is Tier 2, and so on. The maximum tier in an LTO HD slot is Tier 5. The maximum tier in a 3592 HD slot is Tier 4 because the 3592 tape cartridge is slightly longer than the LTO cartridge. The single-deep slots on the door side of HD frames are referred to as Tier 0 slots.

HD2 frames can be installed in the leftmost library position (frame position 1) and offer drive-capable models that support up to 16 HD2-compatible tape drives when in frame position 2 or higher.
Note: Non-HD2 frames cannot be upgraded to HD2 frames.

TS4500 tape library delivers high performance

The IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium, IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium Tape Drives, and TS1140 Tape Drives are designed for high performance in a streaming mode of operation. Automatic data caching, using an expanded cache memory and read/write buffering, helps enhance performance even further. The TS4500 tape library is designed for high data transfer performance.

Cartridge move time within the TS4500 tape library can be as fast as 3.0 seconds or less in a single-frame library. The dual-gripper accessor is designed to retrieve the next cartridge to be mounted, unload the current cartridge, and load the next cartridge, helping provide the following potential benefits as compared to a single gripper:

  • Save complete move operations
  • Improve overall library performance
  • Increase redundancy and reliability

TS4500 tape library defines high reliability

Leading-edge technology positions the TS1140, TS1060 LTO Ultrium, and TS1050 LTO Ultrium Tape Drives among the top leaders of the industry. Highly accurate recording is supported by an exclusive thin-film write module designed by IBM with read-after-write data verification. Data read is managed by IBM Magneto Resistive (MR) heads, designed for accuracy, high reliability, and durability. The TS4500 drives and library robotics are TapeAlert-compatible, and are designed to provide tape drive and library errors, and diagnostic reporting. Drive cleaning is an automatic function that can be performed by the library when required by the drive, without requiring operator intervention.

High granularity in library configurations

Features and capacities are designed to address a wide variety of customer requirements. You can attach up to three Model D25 or D55 expansion frames to a Model L25 or L55 base frame to tailor the library to match your system capacity and performance needs. This provides a cartridge capacity with Ultrium 6 data cartridges of up to 4,690 cartridges with up to 11.7 PB of physical capacity per library (up to 29.3 PB with 2.5:1 compression), or with 3592 data cartridges of up to 3,550 cartridges with up to 14.2 PB of physical capacity per library (up to 42.6 PB with 3:1 compression).

Up to three Model D55 expansion frames may be added to the TS4500 tape library Model L55 base frame to increase LTO cartridge storage or drive capacity. Each Model D55 supports up to 970 LTO cartridge slots (up to 774 in frame 1) and up to 16 IBM LTO Ultrium 6 or 5 Tape Drives (up to 12 in frame 1). Each frame can have up to 16 logical libraries or 16 control paths (one per tape drive).

Designed for availability

If you are looking to maximise availability with minimum downtime for service-related activities, you will appreciate that the library is designed to preserve tape drive configuration settings, such as Fibre Channel World Wide Node Names (WWNN), when a tape drive is replaced. This helps to ensure that the replacement drive has the same WWNN as the original drive and may help avoid the need to re-IPL or reconfigure host systems. Fibre Channel drives require only a quiesce of the individual drive. Redundant hot-swap library and drive power supplies can also be replaced while avoiding impact to host systems.

The TS4500 tape library includes an enhanced power architecture and frame control assembly. This enhanced power architecture has fewer parts and is designed with hot-swappable 2N power supplies and line cords. The enhanced frame control assembly includes features that were previously ordered separately from the 3584 frame control assembly, including dual ac power, a Fibre Channel patch panel, additional redundant power supplies, and additional 10/100 Ethernet support.

Multi-Path support

The Multi-Path Architecture of the TS4500 tape library is designed to provide the capability for sharing of the library robotics. This is accomplished by partitioning the library into up to 60 multiple logical libraries (up to the number of drives installed), and providing each logical library its own separate and distinct drives, storage slots, and control paths. I/O slots are shared on a first- come, first-served basis. This type of partitioning is designed to allow heterogeneous applications to share the library robotics independent of each other. Cartridges under library control are not shared between logical libraries, nor allowed to be moved between logical libraries. An example of heterogeneous sharing is a Microsoft Windows 2003 application using the drive and storage slots of one logical library, while a UNIX application uses the drive and slots of another logical library.

Logical libraries can also be used for separating Ultrium 6 Tape Drives and cartridges from Ultrium 5 Tape Drives and cartridges, or TS1140 or 3592 Tape Drives and cartridges, for applications which do not support mixing the drives in the same logical library.

Advanced Library Management System (ALMS)

ALMS virtualizes the locations of cartridges in the TS4500 tape library and is an extension of patented IBM Multi-Path Architecture. With ALMS, the TS4500 tape library is able to virtualize the locations of cartridges (called SCSI element addresses) while maintaining native SAN attachment for the tape drives. ALMS enables logical libraries to consist of unique drives and ranges of volume serial (VOLSER) numbers instead of fixed locations.

The TS4500 tape library comes with ALMS so that you can immediately start assigning tape drives to any logical library by using the TS4500 management GUI. Logical libraries can also be added, deleted, or easily changed without disruption. Storage capacity can be changed without impact to host applications.

ALMS offers dynamic management of cartridges, cartridge storage slots, tape drives, and logical libraries. It enables the TS4500 tape library to achieve unprecedented levels of integration for functionality through dynamic partitioning, storage slot pooling, and flexible drive assignment. ALMS eliminates downtime when you add Capacity On Demand (CoD) or High Density Capacity on Demand (HD CoD) storage, add or remove logical libraries, or change logical library storage allocation. ALMS also reduces downtime when you add expansion frames, add or remove tape drives, or change logical drive allocation.

ALMS provides the following capabilities:

  • Dynamic partitioning through storage slot pooling and flexible drive assignment
  • The transparent ability to add or remove storage capacity to any host application
  • The ability to configure drives or to configure storage capacity without taking the library offline
  • Continuously enabled virtual I/O slots to automatically manage the movement of cartridges between I/O slots and storage slots

Control path failover, data path failover, and load balancing

The path failover feature of the TS4500 tape library ensures the use of a redundant path in the event that communication over the primary path fails.

Command failures and time-outs are costly. You want your library to run smoothly and efficiently. To ensure continued processing, libraries that are equipped with Fibre Channel LTO and 3592 tape drives offer path failover and load balancing capabilities that enable the IBM device driver to resend a command to an alternate path. The alternate path can include another host bus adapter (HBA), Storage Area Network (SAN), or library control path drive. The device driver initiates error recovery and continues the operation on the alternate path without interrupting the application. Path failover and load balancing are built-in features that are enabled by using a purchased license key.

There are two types of path failover capabilities exist: control path failover (CPF) and data path failover (DPF). Control refers to the command set that controls the library (the SCSI Medium Changer command set on LUN 1 of the tape drives). Data refers to the command set that carries the customer data to and from the tape drives (the SCSI-3 Stream Commands (SSC) device on LUN 0 of the tape drives). Path failover refers to when there is redundancy in the path from the application to the intended target (the library accessor or the drive mechanism, respectively), the device driver transparently fails over to another path in response to a break in the active path.

Both types of failover include host-side failover when configured with multiple HBA ports into a switch, but CPF includes target-side failover through the control paths that are enabled on more than one tape drive. DPF includes target-side failover for the dual-ported tape drives that are supported by the TS4500 tape library.

DPF includes load balancing of the HBAs because the channel is a data-intensive path. This means that the control path carries very little data and load balancing is not an issue. Dynamic load balancing support optimizes resources for devices that have physical connections to multiple HBAs in the same machine. When an application opens a device that has multiple HBA paths configured, the device driver determines which path has the HBA with the lowest usage and assigns that path to the application. When another application opens a different device with multiple HBA paths, the device driver again determines the path with the lowest HBA usage and assigns that path to the second application. The device driver updates the usage on the HBA assigned to the application when the device is closed. Dynamic load balancing uses all HBAs whenever possible and balances the load between them to optimize the resources in the machine.

Fibre Channel connectivity

Tape drives in TS4500 tape library Models D25, D55, L25, and L55 are designed to connect to host systems using Fibre Channel interfaces. An LTO Ultrium Tape Drive with a Fibre Channel interface or 3592 Tape Drive can be selected for attachment to host systems and servers utilizing Fibre Channel adapters. Fibre Channel connection distances up to 500 meters are possible. By utilizing selected Fibre Channel switches, it is possible to exceed 500 metre distances.

Storage-only expansion frame

TS4500 tape library Models S55 and S25 are driveless, storage-only expansion frames, with Model S55 designed to contain up to 1,320 Ultrium (LTO) tape cartridges and Model S25 designed to contain up to 1,000 3592 tape cartridges. Model S55 offers a 3 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D55, and Model S25 delivers a 2.5 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D25.

The TS4500 Model S55 can be attached to installed Model D55 and L55 with IBM TS1060, TS1050, or LTO Ultrium Tape Drives. The TS4500 Model S25 can be attached to Model D25 and L25 with Enterprise or 3592 Tape Drives.

The TS4500 Models S25 and S55 incorporate patented IBM HD slot technology, which allows multiple cartridges to be stored in a tiered architecture. The depth of a cartridge location in a high-density slot is known as a tier. Previous model frames supported only one cartridge per storage slot. HD slots are designed to contain multiple cartridges in Tiers 1 through 4 (Model S25) or Tiers 1 through 5 (Model S55).

The TS4500 tape library frames support HD CoD features (#1645 or #1646) that provide a license key to nondisruptively increase licensed capacity in the library. These advancements reduce automation floor space requirements, enhance library management, and provide flexibility, growth, and a foundation for automation across an enterprise or business installation.

The TS4500 tape library (machine type 3584) is part of the family of tape library storage solutions designed for the large, unattended storage requirements in today's midrange to high-end systems. Each aspect of the subsystem is designed to optimize access to data and reliability. The TS4500 tape library supports the IBM LTO Ultrium and Enterprise Tape Drives.

The TS4500 tape library includes support for HD2 expansion frames, Models S55 and S25, which are compatible with current TS4500 library frames. Models S55 and S25, are driveless, storage-only expansion frames, with Model S55 designed to contain up to 1,320 Ultrium (LTO) tape cartridges and Model S25 designed to contain up to 1,000 3592 tape cartridges. Model S55 offers a 3 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D55, and Model S25 delivers a 2.5 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D25.

The TS4500 tape library is designed to provide an excellent network data backup/archive solution. With the granularity and scalability to follow your requirements from a few servers to hundreds of clients, from gigabytes to petabytes, this powerful pairing can grow with you, helping to protect your investment.

IBM LTO6 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 5 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 5 capacities and rates, and read LTO Ultrium 4 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 4 capacities and rates.
    Note: Although the Ultrium 6 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.
  • Increased tape cartridge capacity: The LTO Generation 6 media specification tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 6.25 TB compressed physical capacity, more than double that of the Ultrium 4 and 5 Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, track density, and media length. The IBM Ultrium 6 tape itself is an advanced Barium Ferrite tape developed to help provide durability and increased capacity.
  • Encryption: The IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive supports data encryption on the base drive with Ultrium 6 or Ultrium 5 media. System Managed and Library Managed Encryption and associated IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager access are all available as a chargeable licensed key (feature 1604, LTO Library Managed Encryption) under the TS4500 Tape Library L-frames. IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager is required with this feature.
  • Attachment options: The TS1060 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported attachment models for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. They are supported on a wide range of environments including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.
  • WORM media support: LTO Generation 6 with media specification provides up to 2.5 TB native capacity, up to 6.25 TB in compressed mode, and up to 160 Mbps native data rate. IBM 3589 Ultrium 6 WORM Tape Cartridges are designed for archiving and data retention applications, as well as those applications requiring an audit trail. These cartridges work with the IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive to help prevent the alteration or deletion of user data. IBM LTO 6 WORM Tape Cartridges can be ordered as unique 3589 models with the following features:
    • Prelabeling with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and colour coding
    • Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk
    • Cartridge memory, built into every cartridge, enhances functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed
    • Half-inch particle tape with up to 6.25 TB WORM compressed capacity in a single cartridge
  • Larger internal data buffer: There is a 1 GB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 6 Tape Drive.
  • Digital speed matching: The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching (at one of fourteen speeds: 160.0, 150.8, 141.5, 132.3, 123.1, 113.8, 104.6, 95.4, 86.2, 76.9, 67.7, 58.5, 49.2 or 40.0 MB/s) to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching on Ultrium 6 ranges from 40 to 160 MB/sec versus 40 to 140 MB/sec on Ultrium 5.
  • Giant Magneto Resistive (GMR) head design: Use of flat lap head technology in GMR heads from our Enterprise Tape Drives for Ultrium 6 helps minimise contact, edge damage, debris accumulation, and wear on the tape as it moves over the read/write heads.
  • Dual-stage 16-channel head skew actuator: The actuator is designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity. Track following skew actuator supports flangeless tape guide rollers and dynamic skew to enable the head to follow skew tape motion and improve linear actuation.
  • Power management: The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation. Improvements specifically in idle mode are improved over Ultrium 5.
  • IBM LTFS partitioning support: The principal function of the media partitioning is to allow for faster data access by splitting the cartridge into two media partitions. LTFS media partitioning is supported in the TS1060 Tape Drive, and LTFS LE, LTFS EE, and LTFS Storage Manager will be supported in the TS4500 Tape Library. WORM media cannot be partitioned.

IBM LTFS software leverages LTO6 tape partitioning. It is designed to enable a self-describing tape file format and to deliver an easy tape storage and distribution solution without the use of additional database applications. Customers of IBM LTFS software are those who require a standard tape cartridge format at a low cost and will use stand-alone IBM LTO6 tape drives. IBM LTFS is the perfect solution for those in the media and entertainment industry, and other fields that need massive data storage on tape for long retention periods, such as banking, scientific research, and government sectors.

IBM LTO Ultrium features enhanced in the IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive include:

  • Independent tape loader and threader motors and positive pin retention: These are designed to help improve the reliability of loading and unloading a cartridge, and to retain the pin even if tension is dropped. An independent loader motor, coupled with positive pin retention, is designed to thread the tape with a higher level of reliability.
  • Graceful dynamic braking: In the event of power failure, reel motors are designed to maintain tension and gradually decelerate instead of stopping abruptly, helping reduce tape breakage, stretching, or loose tape wraps during a sudden power outage.
  • Servo and track layout technology: There are 2,176 data tracks in Ultrium 6 versus 1,280 data tracks in Ultrium 5. The high- bandwidth servo system features a low-mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments.
  • Surface Control Guiding Mechanism: The patented Surface Control Guiding Mechanism from IBM is designed to guide the tape along the tape path in the Ultrium 6, 5, and 4 Tape Drives. This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This helps reduce tape damage (especially to the edges of the tape) and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and can accumulate in the head area.
  • Robust drive components optimised for automation environments: Using some of the most robust components available, such as an all metal clutch, steel ball bearings in loader, robust leader block design, and a single circuit card, helps to enhance reliability and prolong the life of drives.
  • Adaptive read equalization: This feature is designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response.
  • Dynamic amplitude asymmetry compensation: This feature optimizes readback signals for linear readback response from MR read head transducers.
  • Separate writing of multiple filemarks: Separate writing of multiple filemarks is designed to cause any write command of two or more filemarks to cause a separate data set to be written containing all filemarks after the first. This feature helps improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark. A write of multiple filemarks typically indicates a point where an append operation might occur after the first of these filemarks, and this change helps prevent having to rewrite datasets containing customer data and the first filemark, if such an append occurs.
  • LTO Data Compression (LTO-DC): The Ultrium 6 uses LTO-DC, which is an implementation of a Lempel-Ziv class 1 (LZ-1) data compression algorithm. LTO-DC is an extension of Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) and an improvement over previous IBM lossless compression algorithms. Scheme-Swapping compression, patented by IBM, is designed to look ahead at incoming data and determine the most efficient storage method (either ALDC or pass-thru mode) to help provide optimal data compression and increase data throughput. The compression ratio for LTO Ultrium 6 is 2.5 to 1.
  • LTO Cartridge Memory (LTO-CM): Contained within the LTO Ultrium data cartridge is the LTO-CM, which is a passive, contactless silicon storage device that is a physical part of the cartridge. The LTO-CM is designed to hold information about that specific cartridge, the media in the cartridge, and the data on the media. The storage capacity of the Generation 6 LTO-CM is 16320 bytes, double the capacity of Generation 5 and 4 LTO-CM 8160 bytes. Communication between the drive and the LTO-CM is through a low-level RF field transmitted by the drive to the cartridge.
  • Statistical Analysis and Reporting System (SARS): The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive uses SARS to help isolate failures between media and hardware. SARS uses the cartridge performance history saved in the CM module and the drive performance history kept in the drive flash EEPROM to help determine the most likely cause of failure. SARS is designed to cause the drive to request a cleaner tape, to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded.
  • Highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology: This technology is designed to reduce the total number of components in the drive, help lower chip temperatures, and reduce power requirements to deliver a more reliable drive. The sixth-generation drive electronics are designed to provide error correction of soft errors in the memory arrays in data and control paths.

With support for LTO Ultrium-format tape data cartridges, TS1060 Model F6C with the TS4500 Tape Library can be a cost-effective solution for backup, save-and-restore, and archiving functions.

Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge

The LTO Generation 6 media specification tape cartridge physical compressed capacity of the LTO 6 Data Cartridge has more than doubled the capacity of the IBM Ultrium 5 Data Cartridge with a capacity of up to 6.25 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression. IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drives can read and write Ultrium 5 data cartridges, and read Ultrium 4 data cartridges. IBM LTO 6 cartridges can be resident in the same TS4500 Tape Library with the Ultrium 5 and Ultrium 4 data cartridges. IBM LTO 6 data cartridges can be ordered using IBM machine type 3589, IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Cartridges.

These cartridges have been designed to provide several enhancements over previous tape technologies. They are designed to work with tape drives that have increased tape speeds and high-density data recording. The case is specially designed for use in automated libraries and is designed for repeated, unattended handling.

TS1050 Model F5C Ultrium 5 Tape drive

IBM TS1050 Model F5C is an IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive designed for the heavy demands of backup and archive tape storage. The TS1050 Model F5C is designed to mount in a TS4500 Tape Library and has an 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported interface for attachment to a wide range of environments, including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.

TS1050 Model F5C incorporates fifth-generation IBM LTO Ultrium technology. It offers the following significant improvements over prior generations:

IBM LTO5 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 4 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 4 capacities and rates, and read LTO Ultrium 3 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 3 capacities and rates.
    Note: Although the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.
  • Increased tape cartridge capacity: The LTO Generation 5 media specification tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 3.0 TB compressed physical capacity, more than double that of the Ultrium 4 and 5 Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, track density, and media length. The IBM Ultrium 5 tape itself is an advanced Barium Ferrite tape developed to help provide durability and increased capacity.
  • Encryption: The IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive supports data encryption on the base drive with Ultrium 5 media.

    • Half-inch particle tape with up to 3.0 TB WORM compressed capacity in a single cartridge
  • Larger internal data buffer: There is a 512 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive.
  • Digital speed matching: The Ultrium 5 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching is 40 to 140 MB/sec on Ultrium 5.

TS4500 features and functions

LTO tape drives

The TS4500 tape library supports LTO 5 and later LTO tape drives.

The LTO 5 and LTO 6 tape drives are dual-ported drives that facilitate 8 Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity. These drives are differentiated from other LTO drives by their machine type and model numbers. You can identify the LTO tape drives by the label at the rear of the drive's canister. The following two generations of HD2-compatible LTO drives are supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library:

  • IBM TS1060 Tape Drive (Model 3588 F6C)
  • IBM TS1050 Tape Drive (Model 3588 F5C)

Note: Drive models 3588 F6A and 3588 F5A are not supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.

The LTO tape drives communicate with the TS4500 tape library through an internal Ethernet interface and use SARS to isolate failures between media and hardware.

LTO tape drives read and write non-WORM media, so you can load WORM-capable firmware on your tape drives and use any media that is supported by these drives. In this case, only the data that is written on WORM media is treated as WORM data. Data that is written on other types of media can be overwritten.

LTO tape drives do not read from or write to 3592 tape cartridges, and 3592 tape drives do not read or write to LTO tape cartridges.

The LTO tape drives can read tapes that were written by non-IBM LTO drives. They also write to tapes that can be read by non-IBM LTO drives.

All supported generations of LTO tape drives and cartridges can reside in the same frame.

When a cartridge is labeled according to IBM bar code label specifications, the last character of its VOLSER number indicates the generation of the medium. For example, a cartridge with a VOLSER of 000764L6 is an LTO 6 cartridge and a cartridge with a VOLSER of 000764L5 is an LTO 5 cartridge.

To enhance library performance, the LTO tape drives include speed matching, channel calibration, and power management. Speed matching dynamically adjusts the drive's native (uncompressed) data rate to the slower data rate of a server. Channel calibration customizes each read and write data channel for optimum performance. The customization enables compensation for variations in the recording channel transfer function, media characteristics, and read/write head characteristics. Power management reduces the drive's power consumption during idle power periods.

To ensure that your tape drive conforms to IBM specifications for reliability, use only IBM LTO tape cartridges.

Encryption

The LTO 5 and later LTO tape drives are encryption capable, which means they can convert data into a cipher for data security. To perform encryption, the drive must be encryption enabled by your selection of one of three methods of encryption management. Two of these methods, system-managed and library-managed encryption, require the purchase of feature number 1604 (LTO Library Managed Encryption). A key is required to encrypt and decrypt the data. How a key is generated, maintained, controlled, and transmitted depends on the operating environment where the tape drive is installed. Some data management applications are capable of performing key management. For an alternative solution, IBM provides a key manager that works in conjunction with the keystore of your choice to perform all necessary key management tasks. There is no recovery for lost encryption keys. Also refer to the IBM Encryption Key Manager and IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (formerly Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager) publications.

3592 tape drives

The TS4500 tape library supports the TS1140 tape drive.

The TS1140 tape drive offers a dual-port Fibre Channel host attachment interface. This feature provides flexibility in open systems environments because the drives can directly attach to Open Systems servers with Fibre Channel attachments. All TS1140 tape drives are encryption capable. The IBM TS1140 (Model 3592 EH7) HD2-compatible 3592 tape drive is supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.
Note: Drive model 3592 E07 is not supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.

The 3592 tape drive communicates with the TS4500 tape library through an internal Ethernet interface and uses the SARS to isolate failures between media and hardware.

The 3592 tape drives provide the following performance, capacity, and availability features:

  • N+1 power supplies
  • Speed matching
  • High-resolution tape directory
  • Channel calibration and dynamic adaptive equalization
  • Recursive accumulating backhitchless flush
  • Backhitchless backspace
  • Capacity scaling
  • WORM
  • Capacity-based and position-based LEOT reporting
  • Enhanced format for recording error-correction codes
  • Drive mechanical and electrical reliability
  • Data compression
  • Data buffer with read ahead feature
  • Offboard data string searching
  • Encryption

Limitations Limitations


IBM TS4500 is a highly scalable, stand-alone device that delivers high-density tape storage and high-performance, automated tape handling for open systems environments. IBM TS4500 tape library consists of a high-density base frame with up to three high-density expansion frames.

The TS4500 tape library is built from a single frame model, called the base frame. The scalability of the library allows an increase in capacity by adding up to three additional frames, called expansion frames. The frames join side by side and can grow to the left or to the right of the base frame. All frames are supported by a single cartridge accessor.

The TS4500 tape library supports second-generation HD (HD2) frames, which like the first generation HD frames, offer increased capacity without increasing frame size or required floor space by using high- density storage slots for tape cartridges. In addition, HD2 frames provide the following enhancements:

  • HD2 expansion frames can be installed in the leftmost position of the library (frame number 1)
  • Drive-capable HD2 frames support up to 16 HD2-compatible tape drives when positioned at frame number 2 or higher

Note: Non-HD2 frames cannot be upgraded to HD2 frames.

The L25 and L55 (Lx5) frames and D25 and D55 (Dx5) frames are HD2, drive-capable frames, meaning they contain HD cartridge storage slots, as well as slots to house up to sixteen tape drives. The S25 and S55 (Sx5) frames are HD2, storage-only frames, meaning they contain HD cartridge storage slots, but no tape drives. All HD frames provide internal LED lighting.
Note: The LED lighting in the HD frames is specifically designed for use only in the TS4500 tape library and is not suitable for other applications.

The TS4500 tape library supports IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium 6, TS1050 LTO Ultrium 5, and IBM TS1140 Tape Drives. I/O stations are located on Model L25 or L55 to facilitate tape loading and unloading.

The TS4500 tape library is designed to deliver an excellent network data backup/archive solution. With the granularity and scalability to follow your requirements from a few servers to hundreds of clients, from gigabytes to terabytes, this powerful pairing can grow with you, helping to protect your investment.

HD technology

The TS4500 tape library offers HD, drive-capable, and storage-only frame models that are designed to greatly increase storage capacity without increasing frame size or required floor space.

HD slots contain tape cartridges in a tiered architecture. The cartridge immediately accessible in the HD slot is a Tier 1 cartridge. Behind that is Tier 2, and so on. The maximum tier in an LTO HD slot is Tier 5. The maximum tier in a 3592 HD slot is Tier 4 because the 3592 tape cartridge is slightly longer than the LTO cartridge. The single-deep slots on the door side of HD frames are referred to as Tier 0 slots.

HD2 frames can be installed in the leftmost library position (frame position 1) and offer drive-capable models that support up to 16 HD2-compatible tape drives when in frame position 2 or higher.
Note: Non-HD2 frames cannot be upgraded to HD2 frames.

TS4500 tape library delivers high performance

The IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium, IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium Tape Drives, and TS1140 Tape Drives are designed for high performance in a streaming mode of operation. Automatic data caching, using an expanded cache memory and read/write buffering, helps enhance performance even further. The TS4500 tape library is designed for high data transfer performance.

Cartridge move time within the TS4500 tape library can be as fast as 3.0 seconds or less in a single-frame library. The dual-gripper accessor is designed to retrieve the next cartridge to be mounted, unload the current cartridge, and load the next cartridge, helping provide the following potential benefits as compared to a single gripper:

  • Save complete move operations
  • Improve overall library performance
  • Increase redundancy and reliability

TS4500 tape library defines high reliability

Leading-edge technology positions the TS1140, TS1060 LTO Ultrium, and TS1050 LTO Ultrium Tape Drives among the top leaders of the industry. Highly accurate recording is supported by an exclusive thin-film write module designed by IBM with read-after-write data verification. Data read is managed by IBM Magneto Resistive (MR) heads, designed for accuracy, high reliability, and durability. The TS4500 drives and library robotics are TapeAlert-compatible, and are designed to provide tape drive and library errors, and diagnostic reporting. Drive cleaning is an automatic function that can be performed by the library when required by the drive, without requiring operator intervention.

High granularity in library configurations

Features and capacities are designed to address a wide variety of customer requirements. You can attach up to three Model D25 or D55 expansion frames to a Model L25 or L55 base frame to tailor the library to match your system capacity and performance needs. This provides a cartridge capacity with Ultrium 6 data cartridges of up to 4,690 cartridges with up to 11.7 PB of physical capacity per library (up to 29.3 PB with 2.5:1 compression), or with 3592 data cartridges of up to 3,550 cartridges with up to 14.2 PB of physical capacity per library (up to 42.6 PB with 3:1 compression).

Model L25 (base frame)

TS4500 tape library Model L25 is a base frame designed for TS1140 or 3592 Tape Drives and 3592 data cartridges. The Model L25 base frame has up to 660 cartridge slots (up to 550 in frame 1) and support for up to 16 tape drives (up to 12 in frame 1). Up to 16 logical libraries (one per tape drive) can be configured for each frame.

Each Model L25 library has two standard 16-slot cartridge I/O stations for importing or exporting 3592 tape cartridges from the library without requiring a re-inventory. For bulk loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. Each time the library door is closed, a bar code reader mounted on the autochanger is designed to scan the cartridge labels enabling a re-inventory of the cartridges in the library frame in as little as 60 seconds. A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library.

Model L55 (base frame)

TS4500 tape library Model L55 is a base frame designed for IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel, IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives, and LTO data cartridges. The Model L55 base frame has up to 882 cartridge slots (up to 730 in frame 1) and support for up to 16 tape drives (up to 12 in frame 1). Up to 16 logical libraries (one per tape drive) can be configured for each frame.

Each Model L55 library has two standard 18-slot cartridge I/O stations for importing or exporting LTO tape cartridges from the library without requiring a re-inventory. For bulk loading of tape cartridges, the library door can be opened. Each time the library door is closed, a bar code reader mounted on the autochanger is designed to scan the cartridge labels enabling a re-inventory of the cartridges in the library frame in as little as 60 seconds. A door lock is included to restrict physical access to cartridges in the library.

Model D25 (expansion frame)

The TS4500 tape library Model D25 expansion frame is designed for TS1140 or 3592 Tape Drives and 3592 data cartridges. Up to three Model D25 expansion frames may be added to the TS4500 Model L25 base frame to increase 3592 cartridge storage or drive capacity. Each Model D25 supports up to 740 3592 cartridge slots (up to 590 in frame 1) and up to 16 3592 Tape Drives (up to 12 in frame 1). Each frame can have up to 16 logical libraries or 16 control paths (one per tape drive).

Model D55 (expansion frame)

The TS4500 tape library Model D55 expansion frame is designed for IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel, IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium Fibre Channel Tape Drives, and LTO data cartridges. Up to three Model D55 expansion frames may be added to the TS4500 tape library Model L55 base frame to increase LTO cartridge storage or drive capacity. Each Model D55 supports up to 970 LTO cartridge slots (up to 774 in frame 1) and up to 16 IBM LTO Ultrium 6 or 5 Tape Drives (up to 12 in frame 1). Each frame can have up to 16 logical libraries or 16 control paths (one per tape drive).

Designed for availability

If you are looking to maximise availability with minimum downtime for service-related activities, you will appreciate that the library is designed to preserve tape drive configuration settings, such as Fibre Channel World Wide Node Names (WWNN), when a tape drive is replaced. This helps to ensure that the replacement drive has the same WWNN as the original drive and may help avoid the need to re-IPL or reconfigure host systems. Fibre Channel drives require only a quiesce of the individual drive. Redundant hot-swap library and drive power supplies can also be replaced while avoiding impact to host systems.

The TS4500 tape library includes an enhanced power architecture and frame control assembly. This enhanced power architecture has fewer parts and is designed with hot-swappable 2N power supplies and line cords. The enhanced frame control assembly includes features that were previously ordered separately from the 3584 frame control assembly, including dual ac power, a Fibre Channel patch panel, additional redundant power supplies, and additional 10/100 Ethernet support.

Multi-Path support

The Multi-Path Architecture of the TS4500 tape library is designed to provide the capability for sharing of the library robotics. This is accomplished by partitioning the library into up to 60 multiple logical libraries (up to the number of drives installed), and providing each logical library its own separate and distinct drives, storage slots, and control paths. I/O slots are shared on a first- come, first-served basis. This type of partitioning is designed to allow heterogeneous applications to share the library robotics independent of each other. Cartridges under library control are not shared between logical libraries, nor allowed to be moved between logical libraries. An example of heterogeneous sharing is a Microsoft Windows 2003 application using the drive and storage slots of one logical library, while a UNIX application uses the drive and slots of another logical library.

Logical libraries can also be used for separating Ultrium 6 Tape Drives and cartridges from Ultrium 5 Tape Drives and cartridges, or TS1140 or 3592 Tape Drives and cartridges, for applications which do not support mixing the drives in the same logical library.

Advanced Library Management System (ALMS)

ALMS virtualizes the locations of cartridges in the TS4500 tape library and is an extension of patented IBM Multi-Path Architecture. With ALMS, the TS4500 tape library is able to virtualize the locations of cartridges (called SCSI element addresses) while maintaining native SAN attachment for the tape drives. ALMS enables logical libraries to consist of unique drives and ranges of volume serial (VOLSER) numbers instead of fixed locations.

The TS4500 tape library comes with ALMS so that you can immediately start assigning tape drives to any logical library by using the TS4500 management GUI. Logical libraries can also be added, deleted, or easily changed without disruption. Storage capacity can be changed without impact to host applications.

ALMS offers dynamic management of cartridges, cartridge storage slots, tape drives, and logical libraries. It enables the TS4500 tape library to achieve unprecedented levels of integration for functionality through dynamic partitioning, storage slot pooling, and flexible drive assignment. ALMS eliminates downtime when you add Capacity On Demand (CoD) or High Density Capacity on Demand (HD CoD) storage, add or remove logical libraries, or change logical library storage allocation. ALMS also reduces downtime when you add expansion frames, add or remove tape drives, or change logical drive allocation.

ALMS provides the following capabilities:

  • Dynamic partitioning through storage slot pooling and flexible drive assignment
  • The transparent ability to add or remove storage capacity to any host application
  • The ability to configure drives or to configure storage capacity without taking the library offline
  • Continuously enabled virtual I/O slots to automatically manage the movement of cartridges between I/O slots and storage slots

Control path failover, data path failover, and load balancing

The path failover feature of the TS4500 tape library ensures the use of a redundant path in the event that communication over the primary path fails.

Command failures and time-outs are costly. You want your library to run smoothly and efficiently. To ensure continued processing, libraries that are equipped with Fibre Channel LTO and 3592 tape drives offer path failover and load balancing capabilities that enable the IBM device driver to resend a command to an alternate path. The alternate path can include another host bus adapter (HBA), Storage Area Network (SAN), or library control path drive. The device driver initiates error recovery and continues the operation on the alternate path without interrupting the application. Path failover and load balancing are built-in features that are enabled by using a purchased license key.

There are two types of path failover capabilities; control path failover (CPF) and data path failover (DPF). Control refers to the command set that controls the library (the SCSI Medium Changer command set on LUN 1 of the tape drives). Data refers to the command set that carries the customer data to and from the tape drives (the SCSI-3 Stream Commands (SSC) device on LUN 0 of the tape drives). Path failover refers to when there is redundancy in the path from the application to the intended target (the library accessor or the drive mechanism, respectively), the device driver transparently fails over to another path in response to a break in the active path.

Both types of failover include host-side failover when configured with multiple HBA ports into a switch, but CPF includes target-side failover through the control paths that are enabled on more than one tape drive. DPF includes target-side failover for the dual-ported tape drives that are supported by the TS4500 tape library.

DPF includes load balancing of the HBAs because the channel is a data-intensive path. This means that the control path carries very little data and load balancing is not an issue. Dynamic load balancing support optimizes resources for devices that have physical connections to multiple HBAs in the same machine. When an application opens a device that has multiple HBA paths configured, the device driver determines which path has the HBA with the lowest usage and assigns that path to the application. When another application opens a different device with multiple HBA paths, the device driver again determines the path with the lowest HBA usage and assigns that path to the second application. The device driver updates the usage on the HBA assigned to the application when the device is closed. Dynamic load balancing uses all HBAs whenever possible and balances the load between them to optimize the resources in the machine.

Fibre Channel connectivity

Tape drives in TS4500 tape library Models D25, D55, L25, and L55 are designed to connect to host systems using Fibre Channel interfaces. An LTO Ultrium Tape Drive with a Fibre Channel interface or 3592 Tape Drive can be selected for attachment to host systems and servers utilizing Fibre Channel adapters. Fibre Channel connection distances up to 500 meters are possible. By utilizing selected Fibre Channel switches, it is possible to exceed 500 metre distances.

Storage-only expansion frame

TS4500 tape library Models S55 and S25 are driveless, storage-only expansion frames, with Model S55 designed to contain up to 1,320 Ultrium (LTO) tape cartridges and Model S25 designed to contain up to 1,000 3592 tape cartridges. Model S55 offers a 3 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D55, and Model S25 delivers a 2.5 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D25.

The TS4500 Model S55 can be attached to installed Model D55 and L55 with IBM TS1060, TS1050, or LTO Ultrium Tape Drives. The TS4500 Model S25 can be attached to Model D25 and L25 with Enterprise or 3592 Tape Drives.

The TS4500 Models S25 and S55 incorporate patented IBM HD slot technology, which allows multiple cartridges to be stored in a tiered architecture. The depth of a cartridge location in a high-density slot is known as a tier. Previous model frames supported only one cartridge per storage slot. HD slots are designed to contain multiple cartridges in Tiers 1 through 4 (Model S25) or Tiers 1 through 5 (Model S55).

The TS4500 tape library frames support HD CoD features (#1645 or #1646) that provide a license key to nondisruptively increase licensed capacity in the library. These advancements reduce automation floor space requirements, enhance library management, and provide flexibility, growth, and a foundation for automation across an enterprise or business installation.

The TS4500 tape library (machine type 3584) is part of the family of tape library storage solutions designed for the large, unattended storage requirements in today's midrange to high-end systems. Each aspect of the subsystem is designed to optimize access to data and reliability. The TS4500 tape library supports the IBM LTO Ultrium and Enterprise Tape Drives.

The TS4500 tape library includes support for HD2 expansion frames, Models S55 and S25, which are compatible with current TS4500 library frames. Models S55 and S25, are driveless, storage-only expansion frames, with Model S55 designed to contain up to 1,320 Ultrium (LTO) tape cartridges and Model S25 designed to contain up to 1,000 3592 tape cartridges. Model S55 offers a 3 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D55, and Model S25 delivers a 2.5 to 1 increase in slot capacity over Model D25.

The TS4500 tape library is designed to provide an excellent network data backup/archive solution. With the granularity and scalability to follow your requirements from a few servers to hundreds of clients, from gigabytes to petabytes, this powerful pairing can grow with you, helping to protect your investment.

Model S25

TS4500 tape library Model S25 is a high-density, storage-only expansion frame that can contain up to 1,000 3592 tape cartridges, compared to 740 3592 cartridges in Model D25. The base capacity for a Model S25 frame consists of up to 600 storage slots available in Tiers 0, 1, and 2. In order to use the additional high-density capacity of up to 400 storage slots in Tiers 3 and 4, the CoD feature #1645 for Model S25 is required. ALMS and an enhanced gripper assembly are required for any library with a Model S25 frame.

Model S55

TS4500 tape library Model S55 is a high-density, storage-only expansion frame that can contain up to 1,320 LTO Ultrium cartridges, compared to 970 LTO cartridges in the Model D55. The base capacity for a Model S55 frame consists of up to 660 storage slots available in Tiers 0, 1, and 2. In order to use the additional high-density capacity of up to 660 storage slots in Tiers 3, 4, and 5, the CoD feature #1646 for Model S55. ALMS and an enhanced gripper assembly are required for any library with a Model S55 frame.

Top Rack Option Model 3584-TR1

The 3584 TS4500 tape library also offers an optional top rack to provide an additional 10U of rack space on any frame in a library without requiring any additional floor space. A top rack is installed by an IBM service representative on one or more frames in a TS4500 tape library. Top rack end covers, feature number 1750, are required for both ends of one or more adjacent top racks. A power distribution unit, feature number 1751, can optionally be ordered for any top rack.

TS1060 Model F6C Ultrium 6 Tape drive

IBM TS1060 Model F6C is an IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive designed for the heavy demands of backup and archive tape storage. The TS1060 Model F6C is designed to mount in a TS4500 tape library and has an 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported interface for attachment to a wide range of environments, including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.

TS1060 Model F6C incorporates sixth-generation IBM LTO Ultrium technology. It offers the following significant improvements over prior generations:

  • Increased performance: Maximum tape drive throughput native data rate performance is up to 160 MB/sec. Data tracks are written 16 at a time. IBM LTO6 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 5 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 5 capacities and rates, and read LTO Ultrium 4 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 4 capacities and rates.
    Note: Although the Ultrium 6 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.
  • Increased tape cartridge capacity: The LTO Generation 6 media specification tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 6.25 TB compressed physical capacity, more than double that of the Ultrium 4 and 5 Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, track density, and media length. The IBM Ultrium 6 tape itself is an advanced Barium Ferrite tape developed to help provide durability and increased capacity.
  • Encryption: The IBM TS1060 LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive supports data encryption on the base drive with Ultrium 6 or Ultrium 5 media. System Managed and Library Managed Encryption and associated IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager access are all available as a chargeable licensed key (feature 1604, LTO Library Managed Encryption) under the TS4500 Tape Library L-frames. IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager is required with this feature.
  • Attachment options: The TS1060 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported attachment models for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. They are supported on a wide range of environments including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.
  • WORM media support: LTO Generation 6 with media specification provides up to 2.5 TB native capacity, up to 6.25 TB in compressed mode, and up to 160 Mbps native data rate. IBM 3589 Ultrium 6 WORM Tape Cartridges are designed for archiving and data retention applications, as well as those applications requiring an audit trail. These cartridges work with the IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive to help prevent the alteration or deletion of user data. IBM LTO 6 WORM Tape Cartridges can be ordered as unique 3589 models with the following features:
    • Prelabeling with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and colour coding
    • Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk
    • Cartridge memory, built into every cartridge, enhances functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed
    • Half-inch particle tape with up to 6.25 TB WORM compressed capacity in a single cartridge
  • Larger internal data buffer: There is a 1 GB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 6 Tape Drive.
  • Digital speed matching: The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching (at one of fourteen speeds: 160.0, 150.8, 141.5, 132.3, 123.1, 113.8, 104.6, 95.4, 86.2, 76.9, 67.7, 58.5, 49.2 or 40.0 MB/s) to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching on Ultrium 6 ranges from 40 to 160 MB/sec versus 40 to 140 MB/sec on Ultrium 5.
  • Giant Magneto Resistive (GMR) head design: Use of flat lap head technology in GMR heads from our Enterprise Tape Drives for Ultrium 6 helps minimise contact, edge damage, debris accumulation, and wear on the tape as it moves over the read/write heads.
  • Dual-stage 16-channel head skew actuator: The actuator is designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity. Track following skew actuator supports flangeless tape guide rollers and dynamic skew to enable the head to follow skew tape motion and improve linear actuation.
  • Power management: The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation. Improvements specifically in idle mode are improved over Ultrium 5.
  • IBM LTFS partitioning support: The principal function of the media partitioning is to allow for faster data access by splitting the cartridge into two media partitions. LTFS media partitioning is supported in the TS1060 Tape Drive, and LTFS LE, LTFS EE, and LTFS Storage Manager will be supported in the TS4500 Tape Library. WORM media cannot be partitioned.

IBM LTFS software leverages LTO6 tape partitioning. It is designed to enable a self-describing tape file format and to deliver an easy tape storage and distribution solution without the use of additional database applications. Customers of IBM LTFS software are those who require a standard tape cartridge format at a low cost and will use stand-alone IBM LTO6 tape drives. IBM LTFS is the perfect solution for those in the media and entertainment industry, and other fields that need massive data storage on tape for long retention periods, such as banking, scientific research, and government sectors.

IBM LTO Ultrium features enhanced in the IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive include:

  • Independent tape loader and threader motors and positive pin retention: These are designed to help improve the reliability of loading and unloading a cartridge, and to retain the pin even if tension is dropped. An independent loader motor, coupled with positive pin retention, is designed to thread the tape with a higher level of reliability.
  • Graceful dynamic braking: In the event of power failure, reel motors are designed to maintain tension and gradually decelerate instead of stopping abruptly, helping reduce tape breakage, stretching, or loose tape wraps during a sudden power outage.
  • Servo and track layout technology: There are 2,176 data tracks in Ultrium 6 versus 1,280 data tracks in Ultrium 5. The high- bandwidth servo system features a low-mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments.
  • Surface Control Guiding Mechanism: The patented Surface Control Guiding Mechanism from IBM is designed to guide the tape along the tape path in the Ultrium 6, 5, and 4 Tape Drives. This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This helps reduce tape damage (especially to the edges of the tape) and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and can accumulate in the head area.
  • Robust drive components optimised for automation environments: Using some of the most robust components available, such as an all metal clutch, steel ball bearings in loader, robust leader block design, and a single circuit card, helps to enhance reliability and prolong the life of drives.
  • Adaptive read equalization: This feature is designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response.
  • Dynamic amplitude asymmetry compensation: This feature optimizes readback signals for linear readback response from MR read head transducers.
  • Separate writing of multiple filemarks: Separate writing of multiple filemarks is designed to cause any write command of two or more filemarks to cause a separate data set to be written containing all filemarks after the first. This feature helps improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark. A write of multiple filemarks typically indicates a point where an append operation might occur after the first of these filemarks, and this change helps prevent having to rewrite datasets containing customer data and the first filemark, if such an append occurs.
  • LTO Data Compression (LTO-DC): The Ultrium 6 uses LTO-DC, which is an implementation of a Lempel-Ziv class 1 (LZ-1) data compression algorithm. LTO-DC is an extension of Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) and an improvement over previous IBM lossless compression algorithms. Scheme-Swapping compression, patented by IBM, is designed to look ahead at incoming data and determine the most efficient storage method (either ALDC or pass-thru mode) to help provide optimal data compression and increase data throughput. The compression ratio for LTO Ultrium 6 is 2.5 to 1.
  • LTO Cartridge Memory (LTO-CM): Contained within the LTO Ultrium data cartridge is the LTO-CM, which is a passive, contactless silicon storage device that is a physical part of the cartridge. The LTO-CM is designed to hold information about that specific cartridge, the media in the cartridge, and the data on the media. The storage capacity of the Generation 6 LTO-CM is 16320 bytes, double the capacity of Generation 5 and 4 LTO-CM 8160 bytes. Communication between the drive and the LTO-CM is through a low-level RF field transmitted by the drive to the cartridge.
  • Statistical Analysis and Reporting System (SARS): The Ultrium 6 Tape Drive uses SARS to help isolate failures between media and hardware. SARS uses the cartridge performance history saved in the CM module and the drive performance history kept in the drive flash EEPROM to help determine the most likely cause of failure. SARS is designed to cause the drive to request a cleaner tape, to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded.
  • Highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology: This technology is designed to reduce the total number of components in the drive, help lower chip temperatures, and reduce power requirements to deliver a more reliable drive. The sixth-generation drive electronics are designed to provide error correction of soft errors in the memory arrays in data and control paths.

With support for LTO Ultrium-format tape data cartridges, TS1060 Model F6C with the TS4500 Tape Library can be a cost-effective solution for backup, save-and-restore, and archiving functions.

Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge

The LTO Generation 6 media specification tape cartridge physical compressed capacity of the LTO 6 Data Cartridge has more than doubled the capacity of the IBM Ultrium 5 Data Cartridge with a capacity of up to 6.25 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression. IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drives can read and write Ultrium 5 data cartridges, and read Ultrium 4 data cartridges. IBM LTO 6 cartridges can be resident in the same TS4500 Tape Library with the Ultrium 5 and Ultrium 4 data cartridges. IBM LTO 6 data cartridges can be ordered using IBM machine type 3589, IBM LTO Ultrium Tape Cartridges.

These cartridges have been designed to provide several enhancements over previous tape technologies. They are designed to work with tape drives that have increased tape speeds and high-density data recording. The case is specially designed for use in automated libraries and is designed for repeated, unattended handling.

TS1050 Model F5C Ultrium 5 Tape drive

IBM TS1050 Model F5C is an IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive designed for the heavy demands of backup and archive tape storage. The TS1050 Model F5C is designed to mount in a TS4500 Tape Library and has an 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported interface for attachment to a wide range of environments, including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.

TS1050 Model F5C incorporates fifth-generation IBM LTO Ultrium technology. It offers the following significant improvements over prior generations:

  • Increased performance: Maximum tape drive throughput native data rate performance is up to 140 MB/sec. Data tracks are written 16 at a time. IBM LTO5 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 4 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 4 capacities and rates, and read LTO Ultrium 3 Data Cartridges at Ultrium 3 capacities and rates.
    Note: Although the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.
  • Increased tape cartridge capacity: The LTO Generation 5 media specification tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 3.0 TB compressed physical capacity, more than double that of the Ultrium 4 and 5 Data Cartridge. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, track density, and media length. The IBM Ultrium 5 tape itself is an advanced Barium Ferrite tape developed to help provide durability and increased capacity.
  • Encryption: The IBM TS1050 LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive supports data encryption on the base drive with Ultrium 5 media. System Managed and Library Managed Encryption and associated IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager access are all available as a chargeable licensed key (feature 1604, LTO Library Managed Encryption) under the TS4500 Tape Library L-frames. IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager is required with this feature.
  • Attachment options: The TS1050 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel dual-ported attachment models for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. They are supported on a wide range of environments including select IBM Power Systems, IBM System i, IBM System p, IBM System x, IBM System z (zLinux), other servers running Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.
  • WORM media support: LTO Generation 5 with media specification provides up to 1.5 TB native capacity, up to 3.0 TB in compressed mode, and up to 140 Mbps native data rate. IBM 3589 Ultrium 5 WORM Tape Cartridges are designed for archiving and data retention applications, as well as those applications requiring an audit trail. These cartridges work with the IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive to help prevent the alteration or deletion of user data. IBM LTO 5 WORM Tape Cartridges can be ordered as unique 3589 models with the following features:
    • Prelabeling with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and colour coding
    • Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk
    • Cartridge memory, built into every cartridge, enhances functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed
    • Half-inch particle tape with up to 3.0 TB WORM compressed capacity in a single cartridge
  • Larger internal data buffer: There is a 512 MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive.
  • Digital speed matching: The Ultrium 5 Tape Drive is designed to perform dynamic speed matching to adjust the drive's native data rate as closely as possible to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out). This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance. Speed matching is 40 to 140 MB/sec on Ultrium 5.
  • IBM LTFS partitioning support: The principal function of the media partitioning is to allow for faster data access by splitting the cartridge into two media partitions. LTFS media partitioning is supported in the TS1050 Tape Drive, and LTFS LE, LTFS EE, and LTFS Storage Manager will be supported in the TS4500 Tape Library. WORM media cannot be partitioned.

The IBM LTFS software leverages LTO5 tape partitioning. It is designed to enable a self-describing tape file format and to deliver an easy tape storage and distribution solution without the use of additional database applications. Customers of IBM LTFS software are those who require a standard tape cartridge format at a low cost and will use stand-alone IBM LTO5 tape drives. IBM LTFS is the perfect solution for those in the media and entertainment industry, and other fields that need massive data storage on tape for long retention periods, such as banking, scientific research, and government sectors.

IBM LTO Ultrium features enhanced in the IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive include:

  • Independent tape loader and threader motors and positive pin retention: These are designed to help improve the reliability of loading and unloading a cartridge, and to retain the pin even if tension is dropped. An independent loader motor, coupled with the positive pin retention, is designed to thread the tape with a higher level of reliability.
  • Graceful dynamic braking: In the event of power failure, reel motors are designed to maintain tension and gradually decelerate instead of stopping abruptly, helping reduce tape breakage, stretching, or loose tape wraps during a sudden power outage.
  • Servo and track layout technology: There are 1,280 data tracks in Ultrium 5. The high-bandwidth servo system features a low- mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments.
  • Surface Control Guiding Mechanism: The patented Surface Control Guiding Mechanism from IBM is designed to guide the tape along the tape path in the Ultrium 5 and 4 Tape Drives. This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This helps reduce tape damage (especially to the edges of the tape) and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and can accumulate in the head area.
  • Robust drive components optimised for automation environments: Using some of the most robust components available, such as an all metal clutch, steel ball bearings in the loader, robust leader block design, and a single circuit card, helps to enhance reliability and prolong the life of drives.

Ultrium 5 Data Cartridge

The LTO Generation 5 media specification tape cartridge physical compressed capacity of the LTO 5 Data Cartridge has more than doubled the capacity of the IBM Ultrium 4 Data Cartridge with a capacity of up to 3.0 TB with 2 to 1 compression. IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drives can read and write Ultrium 4 data cartridges, and read Ultrium 3 data cartridges. IBM LTO 5 cartridges can be resident in the same TS4500 tape library with the Ultrium 4 and Ultrium 3 data cartridges.

TS1060 Model F6C and TS1050 Model F5C Tape Drive supports IBM LTFS partitioning which enables data to be written individually on media without affecting data on another partition.

TS4500 features and functions

LTO tape drives

The TS4500 tape library supports LTO 5 and later LTO tape drives.

The LTO 5 and LTO 6 tape drives are dual-ported drives that facilitate 8 Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity. These drives are differentiated from other LTO drives by their machine type and model numbers. You can identify the LTO tape drives by the label at the rear of the drive's canister. The following two generations of HD2-compatible LTO drives are supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library:

  • IBM TS1060 Tape Drive (Model 3588 F6C)
  • IBM TS1050 Tape Drive (Model 3588 F5C)

Note: Drive models 3588 F6A and 3588 F5A are not supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.

The LTO tape drives communicate with the TS4500 tape library through an internal Ethernet interface and use SARS to isolate failures between media and hardware.

LTO tape drives read and write non-WORM media, so you can load WORM-capable firmware on your tape drives and use any media that is supported by these drives. In this case, only the data that is written on WORM media is treated as WORM data. Data that is written on other types of media can be overwritten.

LTO tape drives do not read from or write to 3592 tape cartridges, and 3592 tape drives do not read or write to LTO tape cartridges.

The LTO tape drives can read tapes that were written by non-IBM LTO drives. They also write to tapes that can be read by non-IBM LTO drives.

All supported generations of LTO tape drives and cartridges can reside in the same frame.

When a cartridge is labeled according to IBM bar code label specifications, the last character of its VOLSER number indicates the generation of the medium. For example, a cartridge with a VOLSER of 000764L6 is an LTO 6 cartridge and a cartridge with a VOLSER of 000764L5 is an LTO 5 cartridge.

To enhance library performance, the LTO tape drives include speed matching, channel calibration, and power management. Speed matching dynamically adjusts the drive's native (uncompressed) data rate to the slower data rate of a server. Channel calibration customizes each read and write data channel for optimum performance. The customization enables compensation for variations in the recording channel transfer function, media characteristics, and read/write head characteristics. Power management reduces the drive's power consumption during idle power periods.

To ensure that your tape drive conforms to IBM specifications for reliability, use only IBM LTO tape cartridges.

Encryption

The LTO 5 and later LTO tape drives are encryption capable, which means they can convert data into a cipher for data security. To perform encryption, the drive must be encryption enabled by your selection of one of three methods of encryption management. Two of these methods, system-managed and library-managed encryption, require the purchase of feature number 1604 (LTO Library Managed Encryption). A key is required to encrypt and decrypt the data. How a key is generated, maintained, controlled, and transmitted depends on the operating environment where the tape drive is installed. Some data management applications are capable of performing key management. For an alternative solution, IBM provides a key manager that works in conjunction with the keystore of your choice to perform all necessary key management tasks. There is no recovery for lost encryption keys. Also refer to the IBM Encryption Key Manager and IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (formerly Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager) publications.

3592 tape drives

The TS4500 tape library supports the TS1140 tape drive.

The TS1140 tape drive offers a dual-port Fibre Channel host attachment interface. This feature provides flexibility in open systems environments because the drives can directly attach to Open Systems servers with Fibre Channel attachments. All TS1140 tape drives are encryption capable. The IBM TS1140 (Model 3592 EH7) HD2-compatible 3592 tape drive is supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.
Note: Drive model 3592 E07 is not supported by the HD2 frames of the TS4500 tape library.

The 3592 tape drive communicates with the TS4500 tape library through an internal Ethernet interface and uses the SARS to isolate failures between media and hardware.

The 3592 tape drives provide the following performance, capacity, and availability features:

  • N+1 power supplies
  • Speed matching
  • High-resolution tape directory
  • Channel calibration and dynamic adaptive equalization
  • Recursive accumulating backhitchless flush
  • Backhitchless backspace
  • Capacity scaling
  • WORM
  • Capacity-based and position-based LEOT reporting
  • Enhanced format for recording error-correction codes
  • Drive mechanical and electrical reliability
  • Data compression
  • Data buffer with read ahead feature
  • Offboard data string searching
  • Encryption

Physical specifications

Height and length of the frames of the library

This section provides the height of TS4500 tape library frames to help plan for shipment and installation.

Each frame of the TS4500 tape library has a set of casters and four leveling jackscrews. The casters and leveling jackscrews that attach to the TS4500 tape library affect its height.

  • The nominal height from the bottom of the jackscrews to the top of the frame is 1840 mm (72.4 in). This height can vary by plus or minus 40 mm (1.6 in).
  • The shipping height of the library (on its casters and with jackscrews raised and not including the pallet) is 1800 mm (70.9 in).
  • The height of a frame with a top rack is 2320 mm (91.34 in).

The physical specifications by frame model provide detailed information about the height and weight of frames in various configurations. Use this information when planning for TS4500 tape library in your data storage environment.

Limitations

  • The TS4500 tape library supports a mixture of LTO drive types in a logical library, but it does not support a mixture of LTO and 3592 tape drives in a logical library. Some ISVs support mixed drive types within logical libraries; others do not. Some ISVs that support mixed drive types do so with restrictions. For details, contact your ISV.
  • For situations where the ISV support does not exist or does not meet your requirements, the TS4500 tape library provides another option to protect your investment by partitioning the tape drives into separate logical libraries. You can customize the partition to any number of slots by using menus.
  • Although the compression technology can increase the amount of data stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.
  • Fibre Channel cable lengths are limited to 500 meters (1,650 ft).
  • Although multiple systems may be attached to a tape drive, the systems cannot use the drive simultaneously.
  • 3584-TR1 (Top Rack Option) cannot be ordered for frames with the shuttle Tape Library Connector Model SC1.
  • Under-floor power and data connections to the 3584-TR1 cannot be routed through a single-frame TS3500 or TS4500 tape library, and overhead cable trays are strongly recommended in this case. Under-floor power and data connections to the 3584-TR1 can be routed between frames in a multi-frame TS3500 or TS4500 tape library.
  • Feature #0983 is not available in India.

(#9071) Flex Track Guide Base

TS4500 base frames now ship with a Flex-Track guide feature #9071 replacing the X-Track cable trough used by TS3500 and initial TS4500 frames. All frames in a TS4500 library must match the base frame usage of Flex-Track guide or X-Track cable trough. TS4500 base frames that previously shipped without feature #9071 (and all attached expansion frames) will continue to use the X-Track cable trough as long as the library is not upgraded to HA (dual accessor). New TS4500 tape libraries or TS4500 tape libraries upgraded to HA require the Flex-Track guide. TS4500 base frames support Flex-Track guide feature #2071(field) or #9071 (plant). TS4500 expansion frames support Flex-Track guide feature #2072 (field) or #9072 (plant).

(#9080) Mixed Media Library

Note about limitation of use: Mixed media libraries represent <1% of installs in the field and therefore are the least field-proven. <1% of installs in the field and therefore are the least field-proven. For new installations, separate libraries with different type of media are the preferred configuration option as it adds a relatively small percentage to the cost of the solution compared to the risks of having a rare field configuration.

Customers are also provided higher system availability with multiple libraries by increasing the number of accessors (Robots). This is statistically an improvement in MTBF.

    Additional HD CoD licenses can be ordered as field MES's at a later time. For more details on how Elastic Capacity works, visit Elastic capacity at IBM Documentation website.

    Ordering of additional CoD licenses from plant require exception approval from the offering manager.
