Marketplace and customer demands require applications that rely on high capacity, fast access to data or long-term data retention. The IBM® System Storage® TS1130 Tape Drive (TS1130 tape drive) features storage capability to help you establish easy access to data, better security, long-term retention and data governance and regulatory compliance.
The TS1130 tape drive offers high-performance flexible data storage with support for data encryption. The TS1130 tape drive can help you protect your investments in tape automation by offering com-patibility with existing automation. To further protect your investment, an upgrade model is available for your existing IBM System Storage TS1120 Tape Drives. And to support a heterogeneous server environ-ment, the TS1130 offers multiplatform support.
The TS1130 Tape Drive supports IBM System Storage TS3400 and TS3500 Tape Libraries, IBM TotalStorage® 3494 Tape Libraries, IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700, IBM racks that enable stand-a lone installation, and IBM 3952 Tape Frames Model C20 (3952C20 frame) attached to a Sun 9310 library.
To help optimize drive utilization and reduce infrastructure requirements, the TS1130 tape drives can be shared among supported open system hosts on a Storage Area Network (SAN) or between IBM FICON® and ESCON® mainframe hosts when attached to an IBM System Storage TS1120 Tape Controller.
In addition to storing, accessing and managing your data, secu-rity is an important compliance issue. Encryption is a potent technology to help protect data against theft or accidental loss, particularly data that contain personal or sensitive information of a company’s customers.
