    Scalable tape library

    Requirements for secure, long-term data retention—especially in the financial services, healthcare and life sciences industries—are common and increasingly stringent, with data volumes growing massively as a result. Tape storage offers a less costly long-term storage option than disk drives or flash. And data stored on tape kept offline, or on write once media, is nearly invulnerable to hacking.

    IBM® TS4300 Tape Library is a high-density, highly scalable, easy-to-manage tape library designed to keep data securely stored long-term, while helping reduce the costs associated with data center space and utilities. Its modular design enables users to increase cartridge and drive capacity as needed.

    Built around a 3U-high modular base library, TS4300 can scale vertically with up to seven modules (including the base library), with expansion for Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium cartridges (LTO 6, 7, and 8) drives and redundant power supplies. A single robot manages all modules in the stack.

    In a seven-module configuration, TS4300 offers a capacity of more than 270 LTO cartridges. A wizard for installation and configuration enables users to install, expand and service the library without special training.

    Get automatic control

    To help meet security and compliance requirements, TS4300 supports write-once-read-many (WORM) cartridges to enhance data protection, and provides library-managed encryption with IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager. Also, improve business continuity with IBM TS4300 Tape Library-supported features like automatic control-path and datapath failover to provide automatic control in the event of a loss of a host adapter or control path.

    Start with a base

    The TS4300 base library contains all of the necessary robotics and intelligence to manage the base library system, with a maximum of 40 slots of LTO cartridge capacity per module, up to five input/output (I/O) slots, and support for three combinations of full- and/or half-height (FH or HH) LTO drives per module.

    The TS4300 base library is rack- or tabletop mountable. Module expansions are rack-mountable only.TS4300 leverages IBM Spectrum Archive™ for direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored in IBM tape drives and libraries by incorporating the IBM Linear Tape File System™ (LTFS) format standard. LTFS compatibility allows tape-stored data to be accessed as if it were on disk or flash storage.
