Looks like the spam filter may not be working as well as one might like. I guess Quantum isn't considered a major storage vendor but they've had LTO-4HH 3GB/s SAS and deduplication as well.

Josh,My apologies. Good catch!<div>&nbsp;</div> IBM is the first to deliver LTO4 HH drives in "entry level automation", these small TS3100 and TS3200 libraries. I have edited above post to make this more clear.<div>&nbsp;</div> From the press release: "IBM is the first company in the storage industry to offer Ultrium 4 Half-High SAS half-high tape drives in entry automation, enhancing tape performance over the previous generation."<div>&nbsp;</div> And yes, Quantum is a major tape vendor, and valuable partner in the LTO consortium.<div>&nbsp;</div>
