The IBM® TS4500 (TS4500) tape library is a next-generation tape solution that offers higher storage density and better integrated management than previous solutions.
This IBM Redbooks® publication gives you a close-up view of the new IBM TS4500 tape library. In the TS4500, IBM delivers the density that today's and tomorrow's data growth requires. It has the cost-effectiveness and the manageability to grow with business data needs, while you preserve investments in IBM tape library products.
Now, you can achieve a low per-terabyte cost and high density, with up to 13 PB of data (up to 39 PB compressed) in a single 10 square-foot library by using LTO Ultrium 9 cartridges or 11 PB with 3592 cartridges. The TS4500 offers the following benefits:
The TS1160 gives organizations an easy way to deliver fast access to data, improve security, and provide long-term retention, all at a lower cost than disk solutions. The TS1160 offers high-performance, flexible data storage with support for data encryption.
Also, this enhanced fifth-generation drive can help protect investments in tape automation by offering compatibility with existing automation. Store up to 1.05 EB 3:1 compressed per library with IBM 3592 cartridges
This book describes the TS4500 components, feature codes, specifications, supported tape drives, encryption, new integrated management console (IMC), command-line interface (CLI), and REST over SCSI (RoS) to obtain status information about library components.
