as stand-alone and autoloader models, the new drives are targeted
at the midrange/workstation back-up and data interchange sector,
as well as markets such as oil & gas exploration - where geographical
and seismic mapping applications require large amounts of storage
and high data transfer rates.
drive offers direct compatibility with the IBM 3590 in a very
compact and lightweight unit – with a front panel dimension of
127x217mm two of the drives will fit side by side into a 19” industry
standard rack! This drive is a development of our existing 3480/90/90E
series - and it incorporates much of the proven technology and
reliability which has made that device an industry leader.
rates are increased to 13.5MB/second, with tape running speed
of three metres per second – both substantially faster than the
comparable IBM 3590 device. Storage capacity per cartridge is
10GB and up to 35GB with compression.
versions are available that handle 5 and 10 cartridge magazines
in table top configuration. This enables the user to process up
to 100GB (350GB compressed) of data for unattended high quality
back-up. Interface options include SCSI single-ended and differential,
dual port differential and an option for AS400 connectivity.
