Nominal TS1130 read/write performance is 160 MB/sec (uncompressed) if you use long tape (JB). What about read/write performance with standard length tape (JA)? I've checked TS1130 Data Sheet, I cannot find anything about this. For me it seems that capacity is 640 GB (JA assumed), but what about performance?

Nils, I spoke to Randy Fleenor, who is my contact in Tape world, who confirmed that the 160MB/sec native data rate applies to any of the supported tape cartridge capacities.<div>&nbsp;</div> Also, the TS1130 can write or append TS1120-format tapes, but in this case you get slower performance. The TS1130 is not emulating a TS1120, but rather making the cartridge format compatible so that it can be read back in a TS1120 drive.<div>&nbsp;</div> -- Tony
