Overview TS3500 Tape Library


Designed for IBM System z™, IBM Virtualization Engine™ TS7700 and open systems environments

Utilizes the IBM System Storage™ TS1120 Tape Drive and IBM TotalStorage® 3592 Tape Drive Model J1A for System z, TS7700 Virtualization Engine and open systems environments

Utilizes the IBM System Storage TS1040 Tape Drive, using LTO™ Ultrium® 4 technology for increased capacity, throughput, fast access performance and WORM (Write Once Read Many) data cartridges in open systems environments

Optional dual library accessor, with the IBM System Storage TS3500 Model HA1, designed to increase library performance, availability and reliability

Supports TS1120 and TS1040 tape drive encryption for data protection

The IBM System Storage TS3500 Tape Library (TS3500 tape library) is designed to provide a highly scalable, automated tape library for mainframe and open systems backup and archive in midrange to enterprise environments.

The TS3500 tape library supports System z via the IBM 3953 Tape System (3953 tape system). The 3953 tape system enables System z hosts to access the TS3500 tape library cartridge inventory and allows connection to TS1120 and 3592 J1A tape drives. The TS3500 tape library can support up to four 3953 tape systems, allowing for up to eight IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 subsystems per physical library.
