IBM LTO LTO-5 Introduces New Path Failover System in Backup Market

The more data you have, the more vulnerable. Hardware / software failure, malignant changes, viruses, and natural disasters are some of the main reasons that could affect the integrity of the data, and even lead to complete loss of information. This concern applies to all organizations ranging from small and larger companies. Growth in the volume of data exceeds the ability of the media, which has increased the demand for more cost-effective, efficient and high-performance backup solutions to manage this vast amount of data and extension.

LTO tape technology and media is the most preferred solution for data-intensive environments, and companies with limited space. LTO tapes are compatible and extremely well-suited for disaster recovery, long-term archiving, compliance, and secure data backup which is currently off-site. In order to meet the needs of modern data-rich environments, IBM has achieved progress to TS3100 tape library which is now fully compatible with the tape LTO – 5 generation. In addition, the TS3100 IBM tape library also supports LTO – 3 and LTO – 4 versions of the tape.

High-performance tape media LTO – 5, and automated libraries and tape drives to achieve efficiency gains and significant advantages over previous generations of LTO. And, organizations that used this in earlier versions of LTO tapes, features a more compelling and useful means for the development of their system backup recording. LTO – 5 tape devices provide the highest capacity of 3 terabytes (compressed). Tape library TS3100 IBM is designed to reduce maintenance and operating costs and provide consistent performance during heavy burdens.

TS3100 library supports up to 24 backup tapes and tape drives 1-2. IBM TS3100 library provides the economic recovery and backup solution in a random access / sequential with a barcode reader, and provides jobs for remote management TS3100 tape library which enables users to access the tape library from remote locations through the web interface. The new IBM introduced the very useful “path failover” system. In case you lost control of the path or host adapter, and path failover “control system automatically provides an alternative path without losing the current task in progress.

Engine designed specifically for IBM LTO – 5 and the ultrium tape storage is unmatched for reliability with support for data encryption. IBM tape library can take advantage of the TS3100 encryption capabilities drive IBM LTO – 5 tapes through the FC GB / s, 8 and 6 GB / sec SAS interfaces. Top LTO tape sales are:
