The IBM TS3310 Tape Library is a modular, scalable tape library designed to address the tape storage needs of rapidly growing companies that find themselves space- and resource-constrained with tape backup and other tape applications.

Built around a 5U-high modular base library unit, the TS3310 can scale vertically with expansion for LTO Ultrium cartridges, drives and redundant power supplies. The base library module, model L5B, is the entry point for the product family.

It contains all of the necessary robotics and intelligence to manage the 5U-high library system, which houses up to 41 cartridges—35 storage slots and six input/output (I/O) slots—and two LTO Ultrium 7, 6, or 5 tape drives.

Highlights

  • Provides a modular, scalable tape library designed to grow with your needs
     
  • Features desktop, desk-side and rack-mount configurations
     
  • Delivers optimal data storage efficiency with high cartridge density, using standard or write-once-read-many (WORM) Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium data cartridges
     
  • Can simplify user access to data stored on LTO Ultrium 7, 6 and 5 cartridges through the use of IBM® Spectrum Archive™ featuring IBM Linear Tape File System™ technology

Built around a 5U-high modular base library unit, the TS3310 can scale vertically with expansion for LTO Ultrium cartridges, drives and redundant power supplies.

For businesses challenged with rapidly growing data backup and long-term data retention needs and limited physical space for a tape library, the IBM TS3310 offers simple, rapid expansion as processing needs grow.

This tape library allows you to start small, with only a single 5U high library. Over time, as your need for tape backup expands, you can add additional 9U expansion modules, each of which contains space for additional cartridges, tape drives and a redundant power supply. The entire system grows vertically. Currently, available configurations include the 5U base library module and a 5U base, with up to four 9U expansion modules.
