Performance

TS1140 E07 uses a design that increases the native data rate up to 250 MB/sec (up to 650 MB/sec compressed) versus the 160 MB/sec data rate of TS1130 Tape Drive Model E06. It is designed to offer improved access characteristics in search velocity and rewind time versus the TS1130 E06, with other enhancements designed to help aid small file and Hierarchical Storage Manager performance.
Note: The actual throughput achieved is a function of many components, such as system processor, disk data rate, data block size, data compressibility, I/O attachments, SAN, and the system or application software used. Although the drive is capable of a 250 MB/sec native data rate, other components may limit the actual effective data rate.

Capacity scaling

TS1140 Model E07 is designed to support capacity scaling of an individual tape cartridge to 20% of maximum capacity (800 GB for advanced tape cartridges). Capacity scaling lets the utilized length of tape to be logically shortened, allowing improved data access times in trade off for reduced capacity. The tapes can subsequently be scaled back to full capacity as needed.

The TS1140 Model E07 Tape Drive allows an application to issue a command to scale the IBM Tape Data 3592 cartridge. This allows capacity scaling to be exploited by an application that permits media pools to be defined by VOLSER range. You can exploit the capacity scaling capability of the TS1140 E07. For more information on using capacity scaling, refer to IBM 3592 Model E07 Tape Drive Customer Information Center.

Media and cartridge capacity

The TS1140 E07 provides capacity leadership with media reuse and uses Type C tape cartridge with tape specifically optimised for the enterprise tape environment. This provides a native cartridge capacity of 4.0 TB (or up to 12.0 TB with 3:1 compression) and can be beneficial in space savings and economy of data storage since it can help lower the cost of storage per megabyte. For applications that fill current data cartridges, this can help reduce the number of tape cartridges required. The reduced number of cartridges may also help free up floor space for other requirements and reduce the number of automation slots used.

The robust cartridge shell is designed to sustain a 1 metre drop. IBM Tape Cartridge 3592 contains cartridge memory that is a passive, contactless silicon storage device. It is used to hold information about the specific cartridge, including the VOLSER, the media in the cartridge, and the drive.

Attachment options

The TS1140 E07 has dual-ported 8 Gbps native switched fabric Fibre Channel interfaces to offer attachment flexibility in an open systems environment. The drives can be directly attached to open systems servers with Fibre Channel.

The TS1140 is supported in a wide range of environments, including selected IBM Power, System i, System p, and System x systems, Oracle, and Hewlett Packard servers, as well as Intel compatible servers running Linux and Microsoft Windows operating system environments.

Statistical Analysis and Recording System

The TS1140 E07 uses Statistical Analysis and Recording System to assist in isolating failures between media and hardware. It is designed to use the cartridge performance history saved in the cartridge and drive performance history kept in the drive to determine the more likely cause of failure. It is designed to cause the drive to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded.

High-availability data path failover

High-availability data path failover is available with the AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Microsoft Windows IBM tape device drivers. The failover mechanism is designed to enable configuration of multiple redundant paths in a SAN environment that includes the TS1140. In the event of a path or component failure, the failover mechanism is designed to automatically enable error recovery to retry the current operation using an alternate, preconfigured path without aborting the current job in progress. This supports flexibility in SAN configuration, availability, and management. Dynamic load balancing

Dynamic load balancing is a function in the AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Microsoft Windows, and Oracle Solaris tape device drivers that is also available for TS1140 E07 Tape Drives used in a SAN environment. Dynamic load balancing support is designed to improve resources for devices that have physical connections to multiple Host Bus Adapters (HBA) 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. The device driver is designed to dynamically track the usage on each HBA as applications open and close devices, and balance the number of applications using each HBA in the machine. This can help optimize HBA resources and improve overall performance.

Additional enhancements

The TS1140 E07 incorporates the following tape enhancements that were introduced with the 3592 Tape Drive and are designed to help improve performance, capacity, and availability:

  • High reliability of the 3592 drive and media maintained and improved with added features:
    • GMR 32-channel head technology
    • Head overcoat technology into tape offers improved head protection and wear characteristics
    • Standby power management improvements that automatically reduce fan speed when idle to lower power dissipation and reduce the risk of unnecessary airborne debris contamination over extended idle periods
  • Enhanced performance: For functions such as Recursive Accumulating Backhitchless Flush (RABF), and the addition of a new Same Wrap Backhitchless Flush (SWBF) function that extends virtual backhitch effectiveness for large files.
  • N+1 power supplies: The TS1140 E07 supports n+1 power supplies when it is installed in an automation frame, designed to help increase drive availability in the event of a power supply failure.
  • Digital speed matching: The TS1140 E07 is designed to dynamically perform digital speed matching in 14 speeds to adjust the drive's native data rate to the net host data rate (after data compressibility has been factored out) to help allow slower hosts to stream the tape drive.
  • Channel calibration: The channel calibration feature is designed to allow for customization of each read/write data channel for optimum performance. The customization can enable compensation for variations in the recording channel transfer function, media characteristics, and read/write head characteristics. The TS1140 E07 is designed to automatically perform recalibration in the field if it detects degraded performance.
  • High resolution tape directory plus enhanced search speed: The TS1140 E07 Tape Drive maintains a tape directory structure with a high granularity of information about the physical position of data blocks on the media. This feature, plus the increased search speed, allows the TS1140 E07 to have improved nominal and average access times for locate operations versus previous IBM tape drives.
  • Streaming Lossless Data Compression (SLDC) algorithm: SLDC is an implementation of a Lempel-Ziv class 1 (LZ-1) data compression algorithm. It is an extension to Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) and is designed to offer an improvement over previous IBM lossless compression algorithms.

In addition, the TS1140 E07 offers the following enhancements over other 3592 Model Tape Drives:

  • Large internal data buffer: The TS1140 E07 Tape Drive has a 1 GB internal data buffer. Along with enabling higher performance characteristics, the data buffer is designed to use support read ahead of compressed data from tape and provide high performance random skip forward sequential (short hop) locates common in database search and tape software recycle operations.
  • Offboard data string searching: The TS1140 E07 Tape Drive can search the data content of host records for string matches offboard from the host server. The tape drive can perform this search at maximum data rate (250 MB/sec native) while it would take much longer for a host server to read the data, buffer the data to disk, and then parse the actual data stream with host software routines.
  • Enhanced logic to report logical end-of-tape (LEOT): LEOT is now reported based on a combination of capacity-based and position-based LEOT indicators. The TS1140 E07 monitors the total accumulated number of physical tape data sets written to the volume and will report LEOT based on this capacity-based LEOT value. This allows tape copies to complete without overflow a much higher percentage of the time.
