Overview - IBM SDLT/LTO Modular Tape Library
The new SDLT/LTO Modular Tape Library, model 4560SLX expands the line of tape solutions available to protect your valuable stored data. These tape backup subsystems establish new standards in speed, capacity, scalability, and value to compliment IBM eServer xSeries servers.
The 4560SLX Series tape library is a reliable line of automated tape products that provide customer flexibility to meet growing back-up storage requirements in rack configuration. It supports 26 SDLT cartridges and 30 LTO cartridges(1). These automated tape backup devices support Ultra2 low-voltage differential (LVD) SCSI connections up to 80 MB/s data transfer rates. This depends on many factors and is often less than maximum possible(2).
These high-density, modular automated tape enclosures are available in rack version only. Each 5U high unit contains a power supply and electronics logic. SDLT or LTO drive upgrade and magazine options must be ordered to populate these modules.
This drive option contains a base drive mounted in a mechanical sled. These options will help increase performance and free up systems and IT resources when installed.
This card is supported in 4560 Series SDLT or LTO tape enclosure. It acts as a Fibre Channel (FC) router to provide direct attachment to supported FC host or as part of a SAN network.
(2) Based on using onboard hardware data compression feature and assuming a 2:1 compression ratio. Data compression is often less than stated.
