  • Optimizes information retention with support for existing IBM tape automation
  • Supports Write Once Read Many (WORM) cartridges to help satisfy compliance requirements
  • Offers high performance and high capacity for storage consolidation

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.
