Abstract

Top rule

IBM TS2280 Tape Drive (machine type 3580 model H8S) is an external, stand-alone or rack mountable unit designed to offer high capacity and performance for the midrange systems environment. The TS2280 incorporates the IBM Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 8 Half-High SAS Tape Drive and is designed to support LTO Generation 8 media specification native data rate performance of up to 300 MBps, and up to 750 MBps with 2.5 to 1 compression. The TS2280 tape drive supports the LTO Generation 8 specifications for LTO tape drive technology, and LTO Generation 8 media to a compressed capacity of up to 30 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression (up to 12 TB native capacity) compared to previous LTO 7 compressed capacity of up to 15 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression (up to 6.0 TB native capacity) per tape cartridge. The TS2280 can read and write to Ultrium 8 and Ultrium 7 cartridges. The Ultrium 8 tape drive is encryption-capable and designed to support application-managed encryption.

The TS2280 tape drive uses a 6 Gbps dual-port SAS interface for connection to a wide spectrum of system servers, including select IBM Power Systems models, IBM Pureflex systems, and IBM BladeCenters. The TS2280 also supports Microsoft Windows and UNIX operating systems.

The following IBM TS2280 Half-High LTO Ultrium 8 tape drive enhancements are designed to help improve performance, capacity, and reliability:

  • Native LTO Generation 8 media specification data transfer rate of up to 300 MBps and up to 750 MBps with 2.5 to 1 compression
  • LTO Generation 8 media specification tape cartridge native capacity support of 12 TB and compressed capacity of up to 30 TB with 2.5 to 1 compression
  • 6 Gbps SAS attachment support
  • 1 GB internal buffer
  • Application-managed encryption support for half-high LTO Generation 8 SAS tape drive
  • 16 KB cartridge memory with Ultrium 8 media
  • Half-high drive form factor
  • Two SAS ports per drive for improved availability and attachability
  • IBM LTFS partitioning support

The enclosure width enables two TS2280 storage units to be mounted side by side in a 19-inch IBM server rack mount shelf kit, requiring 2U of rack space.

The TS2280 tape drive provides an excellent migration path from digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT), 1/4 in (QIC), 4 mm (DAT), 8 mm, or older LTO generation tape drives.

Other media forms like disk have never really replaced tape in most data centers. Instead, tape has continued to be number one for storage archiving, and with the continued improvements in tape technology, tape is taking a more prominent role in a data center for both backup and archive. LTO tape is high in capacity and performance, very reliable, and still the lowest priced save/restore solution on the market today.

Management software options

IBM Spectrum Archive: TS2280 leverages IBM Spectrum Archive for direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored in IBM tape drives and libraries by incorporating the IBM LTFS format standard. LTFS compatibility enables tape-stored data to be accessed as if it were on disk or flash storage.

IBM Spectrum Archive enables users of LTO Ultrium 8 tape library systems to inventory cartridges and read, write, and search data on any cartridge, enabling writing of metadata and tagging of individual files for easy and fast access to files stored on cartridges.

IBM Spectrum Protect: Spectrum Protect enables users to create, manage, and optimize archives, and provides management of concurrent copies of content, plus active, inactive, and off-site content.

Product positioning

Top rule

As you compare competitive tape solutions, consider:

  • Capacity and performance requirements
  • Data integrity, reliability, and availability
  • Data security and encryption
  • Storage usage and application requirements
  • Affordability
  • Loyalty to legacy or existing tape formats
  • Work environment where space is limited

IBM TS2280 tape drives and software applications are designed to address these requirements and deliver a functionally rich tape storage solution incorporating LTO Ultrium 7 tape drive technology.

TS2280 is an excellent choice if you use tape drives that require large-capacity or high-performance tape backup. The TS2280, an entry offering to the family of IBM Ultrium tape products, is the answer to growing storage requirements and shrinking backup windows.

The TS2280 tape drive is an excellent tape storage solution if you use digital linear tape drives or require high-performance tape backup. In addition to reading and writing on IBM LTO Ultrium 7 or 8 format tape cartridges, the TS2280 tape drive provides an excellent functional alternative to DLT/SDLT, 1/4 in, 4 mm, 8 mm, IBM Magstar MP 3570, or older LTO generation tape drives.

For capacity requirements greater than 30 TB (compressed) incorporating LTO Ultrium technology, consider the IBM TS2900 Tape Autoloader or TS4300 Entry/Mid-Range tape libraries, or the larger TS4500 Enterprise Tape Library.

For mission-critical data protection needs, optimized for enterprise multimode and host attachment, high-duty cycle and start/stop intensive tape applications, consider the IBM TS1155 or TS1150 Tape Drive with the IBM TS4500 Enterprise Tape Library.

Operating environment Operating environment Software requirements Software requirements
Limitations Limitations


The IBM TS2280 Tape Drive, an external stand-alone or rack-mountable unit, contains a Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 8 tape drive designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage. The TS2280 is supported for SAS attachment to IBM Power Systems, UNIX, and PC servers. Every TS2280 enclosure will feature dual SAS ports to improve availability and attachability. The TS2280 Tape Drive incorporates eighth-generation IBM LTO Ultrium technology and offer improvements over the Ultrium 7 tape drive. With read/write performance of up to 300 MB/sec native data rate (up to 750 MB/sec with 2.5:1 compression), the IBM Ultrium 8 tape drives can read and write Ultrium 8 and 7 data cartridges. With support for IBM LTO Ultrium-format tape data cartridges, the TS2280 tape drive provides an excellent migration path from digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT), 1/4 in, 4 mm, 8 mm, or older LTO generation tape drives. It can be a cost-effective solution for backup save-and-restore, and archiving functions as the entry point for the family of IBM Ultrium tape products.

Physical specifications

  • Width: 213 mm (8.4 in)
  • Depth: 332 mm (13.1 in)
  • Height: 58 mm (2.3 in)
  • Weight: 4.3 kg (9.4 lbs)

To assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM industry-standard racks, review the installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment

  • Temperature: 10°C to 38°C (50°F to 100°F)
  • Relative humidity: 20% - 80%
  • Wet bulb (caloric value): 26.0°C (78.8°F)
  • Electrical power: 0.21 kVA 1.0 amps at 100 V AC, 0.5 amps at 240 V AC

Limitations

SAS cable lengths are limited to 5.5 m (18 ft).

Installing more than one TS2280 tape drive on a SAS bus may impact tape drive or system performance. Intermixing of other SAS devices on the same bus as the TS2280 may also impact performance of those devices.

Although multiple systems may be attached to a tape drive, the systems cannot use the drive simultaneously.

While 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.

Hardware requirements

The TS2280 tape drive comes with raven black covers and uses a SAS interface. The TS2280 tape drive can be attached to IBM Power Systems and non-IBM servers that support those interface specifications. A current list of supported open system configurations is available from the IBM SSIC website.
