The TS4500, IBM delivers the density that today’s and tomorrow’s data growth requires—along with the cost efficiency and the manageability to grow with business data needs while preserving existing investments in IBM tape library products. Now, organizations can achieve both a low cost per terabyte (TB) and a high TB density per square foot. In fact, TS4500 can store up to 5.5 PBs of data in a single 10 square foot library frame, more than three times more capacity than the IBM TS3500 tape library. Here an image of the minimum and maximum TS4500 tape library configurations.
If your data center is running out space the TS4500 tape library with TS1150 tape drives can give you tremendous floor space savings to handle storing Big Data files, archives and backups.
LTFS EE supports the TS4500 tape library with TS1150 tape drives.
