Accelerate with ATS: LTO5 SkipSync Webinar
Tuesday February 22nd 2011 at 11:00 ET
The IBM® System StorageTM TS1050 is an IBM LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Drive that combines
IBM tape reliability and performance at open systems prices.
This Customer Oriented Webinar will demo SkipSync which is an IBM exclusive feature on the IBM LTO 5 drive.
The 3592 family of tape drives has had the performance advantage of Virtual Backhitch for many years.
Now the LTO family has a similar performance enhancement. SkipSync is easy to implement; and for the
right workload can provide a significant performance improvement.
Jeff Ziehm from the Advanced Technical Skills Organization will present an overview of LTO5 SkipSync,
show how to implement it, and demonstrate its performance improvement.
Please Plan on attending this very informative 60 minute session.
