Both libraries are designed to support entry-level, unattended backup, open system attachment flexibility, and enhanced capacity and performance. Description Mixed LTO Ultrium generations and attachment tape drive types are supported where drive space is available.

A remote management unit and a barcode reader are standard in the library, allowing the library to run in sequential or random access mode. Optional features available include a rack mount kit, an additional power supply, additional removable cartridge magazines, transparent LTO encryption, path failover, additional drives, attachment cables, interposers, and power cords. The TS Tape Library is external, stand-alone or rack-mountable units that contain LTO Ultrium tape drives designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage.

Standard barcode reader: With the addition of the standard bar code reader, the TS can be operated as a random access tape library with labeled media. Refer to the Supplies section, for additional information. Removable cartridge magazines: The TS has four removable magazines to enable quick population of the tape library, as well as ease of storage for media. Additional magazines may be ordered as an option. Customer replacement units CRUs : Drives, power supply, and cartridge magazines are customer replacement parts.

Data tracks are written 32 at a time. Note: Although the Ultrium 8 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved.

Also, although the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.

This is achieved by increasing the linear density, and track density. Data cartridges are sold separately and subject to availability. Note: Actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed. Attachment options: The Ultrium 8 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel attachments for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. This helps reduce the number of backhitch repositions and improve throughput performance.

Dual-stage channel head actuator: The actuator is designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity. Track following skew actuator supports flangeless tape guide rollers and dynamic skew to enable the head to follow skew tape motion and improve linear actuation.

Power management: The Ultrium 8 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation. An independent loader motor, coupled with the positive pin retention, is designed to cause the tape to thread with a higher level of reliability.

Graceful dynamic braking: In the event of a power failure, reel motors are designed to maintain tension and gradually decelerate instead of stopping abruptly, helping reduce tape breakage, stretching, or loose tape wraps during a sudden power outage. Servo and track layout technology: There are 6, data tracks in Ultrium 8 versus 3, data tracks in Ultrium 7. The high- bandwidth servo system features a low-mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments.

This method uses the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. This helps reduce tape damage especially to the edges of the tape and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and can accumulate in the head area. Robust drive components optimized for automation environments: Using some of the most robust components available, steel ball bearings in loader, robust leader block design, and single circuit card, these Ultrium features help to enhance reliability and prolong the life of drives.

Adaptive read equalization: This feature is designed to automatically compensate for dynamic changes in readback signal response. Dynamic amplitude asymmetry compensation: This is designed to optimize readback signals for linear readback response from MR read head transducers. Separate writing of multiple filemarks: This is designed to cause any write command of two or more filemarks to cause a separate data set to be written containing all filemarks after the first.

This feature helps improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark. IBM patented "Scheme-Swapping" compression is designed to look ahead at incoming data and determine the most efficient storage method either ALDC or pass-thru mode to help provide optimal data compression and increase data throughput. The compression ratio for LTO Ultrium 8 is 2. The LTO-CM is designed to hold information about that specific cartridge, the media in the cartridge, and the data on the media.

Communication between the drive and the LTO-CM is via a low-level radio frequency field transmitted by the drive to the cartridge. SARS uses the cartridge performance history saved in the Cartridge Memory module and the drive performance history kept in the drive flash to help determine the most likely cause of failure.

SARS is designed to cause the drive to request a cleaner tape, to mark the media as degraded, and to indicate that the hardware has degraded. Highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology: This technology is designed to reduce the total number of components in the drive, help lower chip temperatures, and reduce power requirements, helping to provide for a more reliable drive. The sixth-generation drive electronics are designed to provide error correction of soft errors in the memory arrays in data and control paths.

Note: Although the Ultrium 7 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. This is achieved by increasing the linear density, track density, and the media length. System-managed and library-managed encryption are supported with the LTO Library Managed Encryption feature feature number Attachment options: The Ultrium 7 Tape Drive comes with 8 Gbps Fibre Channel attachments for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers.

Power management: The Ultrium 7 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation.

Improvements specifically in idle mode are improved over Ultrium 6. Servo and track layout technology: There are 3, data tracks in Ultrium 7 versus 2, data tracks in Ultrium 6. This feature help improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark.

The compression ratio for LTO Ultrium 7 is 2. Note: Although the Ultrium 6 tape drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved. Also, the compression technology used in the tape drive can typically double the amount of data that can be stored on the media, but the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.

Increased tape cartridge capacity: LTO Generation 6 media specification tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 6. This is achieved by increasing the linear density and the media length. The tape itself is a Barium Ferrite tape developed to help provide durability and increased capacity.

Ultrium 5 cartridge compatibility: The Ultrium 6 tape drive can read and write Ultrium 5 cartridges. IBM LTO-6 WORM tape cartridges can be ordered as unique models with the following features: Prelabeling with the ability to specify a starting volume serial and color-coding Packaging in individual jewel cases or in bulk Cartridge memory is built into every cartridge to enhance functionality and media reliability by storing access history and media performance information for use by the tape drive every time the cartridge is accessed Half-inch Barium Ferrite tape with up to 6.

Larger internal data buffer: There is a 1 GB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 6 full-high tape drive and a MB internal data buffer in the Ultrium 6 half-high tape drive. Dual-stage channel head skew actuator: The actuator is designed to provide precision head alignment to help support higher track density and improved data integrity. The track following skew actuator supports flangeless tape guide rollers and dynamic skew to enable the head to follow skew tape motion and improve linear actuation.

Power management: The Ultrium 6 tape drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation. Improvements specifically in idle mode are improved over Ultrium 5. The high-bandwidth servo system features a low-mass servo to help more effectively track servo bands and improve data throughput with damaged media in less-than-optimal shock and vibration environments.

This method is designed to use the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion to reduce tape damage especially to the edges of the tape and tape debris, which comes from the damaged edges and accumulation in the head area.

Robust drive components optimized for automation environments: With the most robust components available, such as all-metal clutch, steel ball bearings in loader, robust leader block design, and single circuit card, the drives offer enhanced reliability and prolonged life. Separate writing of multiple filemarks: Separate writing of multiple filemarks is designed to evoke any write command of two or more filemarks to cause a separate data set to be written containing all filemarks after the first.

This helps improve performance if a subsequent append overwrites somewhere after the first filemark, and helps prevent having to rewrite data sets containing customer data and the first filemark if such an append occurs. Patented "Scheme-Swapping" compression from IBM is designed to look ahead at incoming data and determine the most efficient storage method either ALDC or pass-through mode to help optimize data compression and increase data throughput.

The compressed ratio is up to 2. Highly integrated electronics using IBM-engineered copper technology: This technology is designed to reduce the total number of components in the drive, help lower chip temperatures, and reduce power requirements, resulting in a more reliable drive. The fourth-generation drive electronics are designed to provide error correction of soft errors in the memory arrays in data and control paths.

Ultrium 6. LTO data cartridges can be ordered using machine type , LTO Ultrium tape cartridges, or as a feature number at the time of purchase. These cartridges have been designed to provide several enhancements over previous tape technologies. They are designed to work with tape drives that have increased tape speeds and high-density data recording.

The case is specially designed for use in automated libraries and is designed for repeated, unattended handling. The tape itself is a Barium Ferrite tape developed for durability and capacity. Multi-Path support The Multi-Path feature of the libraries supports sharing of the library robotics. The library can be partitioned into up to four logical libraries, and can provide each logical library its own separate and distinct drives, storage slots, and control paths.

You can partition the library into as many logical libraries as there are drives in the library. Each logical library must contain at least one drive. Note: This type of partitioning is designed to allow heterogeneous applications to share the library robotics independent of each other.

Cartridges under library control are not shared between logical libraries, nor allowed to be moved between logical libraries. An example of heterogeneous sharing is a Microsoft Windows application using the drive and storage slots of one logical library while a UNIX application uses the drive and slots of another logical library. The TS is designed for the heavy demands of backup tape storage. Standard Barcode Reader: With the addition of the standard bar code reader, you will be able to operate the TS as a random access tape library with labeled media.

Refer to the Supplies section for additional information. Removable Cartridge Magazines: The TS has four removable magazines that house 48 data cartridges. This helps allow for quick population of the tape library, as well as ease of storage for media. You may order additional magazines as an option. Data tracks are written 16 at a time. Note: Although the Ultrium 5 Tape Drive provides the capability for excellent tape performance, other components of the system may limit the actual performance achieved.

Increased Tape Cartridge Capacity: The tape cartridge physical capacity is up to 1. The tape itself is an advanced metal particle tape developed to help provide durability and capacity. IBM Ultrium 5 1. Dual-Stage Channel Head Skew Actuator: The actuator for the LTO 5 Full-High drive is designed to provide precision head alignment to help skew to enable the head to follow skew tape motion and improve linear actuation. Power Management: The Ultrium 5 Tape Drive power management function is designed to control the drive electronics to be either completely turned off or in a low-power mode when the circuit functions are not needed for drive operation.

Improvements specifically in idle mode are improved over Ultrium 4. This method is designed to use the surface of the tape, rather than the edges, to control tape motion. Robust Drive Components Optimized for Automation Environments: Using some of the most robust components available, such as all-metal clutch, steel ball bearings in loader, robust leader block design, and single circuit card, to help enhance reliability and prolong the life of the drives.

If the problem still exists, perform an inventory of the entire library from the Tape Library Specialist web interface see Using the Web to perform an inventory of the library. Then try again to use the host application software to inventory the library. If the problem still exists, call your IBM service representative. The host application software indicates that a drive failed. Record the error message and any error codes. Try the job again if possible, use a different cartridge for the retry; many problems that are reported as drive failures are caused by media defects.
