Tens of thousands of cyberattacks occur around the globe every day, costing businesses and private individuals trillions of dollars. The “air gap” created when tape cartridges are secured offline provides one of the most effective defenses against a wide range of cyber threats. Re-discover the simple, inexpensive technology that is virtually impervious to cyberattacks and is already in your data center – tape drives.
The new IBM LTO 9 Tape Drive uses next-generation LTO Ultrium 9 cartridges to store up to 45 TB of compressed data per cartridge – better capacity than previous generations – with a ten-year TCO for data retention that is 86% lower than an all-disk solution and 66% lower than an all-cloud storage solution. Discover how to reduce your storage costs, simplify data management and enhance security and compliance.
Provides an easy way to deliver fast access to data, improve security and provide long-term retention at a lower cost than disk solutions. This tape drive is supported in IBM tape libraries as well as IBM racks that enable stand-alone installations.
The new Linear Tape-Open (LTO) 9 internal drive in a Full height form factor, 12 Gbps SAS and 8 Gbps FC interface connections. In addition, it can read and write LTO Ultrium 9 data cartridges and can read LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridges. It interoperates with IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Archive for data access that appears to users in user-friendly, searchable form, much like data stored on disk or flash.
A Linear Tape-Open (LTO) 6 external drive in a half-height form factor, 6 Gbps SAS interface connection. In addition, the TS2260 can read and write LTO Ultrium 5 data cartridges and can read LTO Ultrium 4 data cartridges.
A Linear Tape-Open (LTO) 7 external drive in a half-height form-factor, 6 Gbps SAS interface connection. In addition, TS2270 can read and write LTO Ultrium 6 data cartridges and can read LTO Ultrium 5 data cartridges.
A Linear Tape-Open (LTO) 8 external drive, it incorporates a single drive mechanism in a compact external chassis to enable reliable, economical high-capacity data backups, storing as much as 30 TB per LTO Ultrium 8 cartridge. IBM TS2280 Tape Drive can read and write to LTO Ultrium 7 cartridges and interoperates with IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Archive for data access that appears to users in user-friendly, searchable form, much like data stored on disk or flash.
