What IBM TS7760 can do for your business

IBM® TS7760 is a mainframe virtual tape solution that optimizes data protection and business continuance for IBM Z® data. Through the use of virtualization and disk cache, TS7760 operates at disk speeds while maintaining compatibility with existing tape operations. Its grid communication facility provides access to any host for all the data in the grid, supporting superior business continuance. Its fully integrated tiered storage hierarchy takes advantage of both disk and tape technologies to deliver performance for active data and best economics for inactive and archive data.
