The IBM TS2250 tape drive—the entry-level IBM tape product family offering—is the answer to growing storage requirements. Incorporating the industry-leading LTO Ultrium technology, the TS2250 tape drive is suited for handling backup, save and restore, and archival data storage needs with higher capacity and higher data transfer rate than previous generations.
In addition, IBM LTO Ultrium 5 technology is designed to support media partitioning and LTFS technology. It also continues to support the encryption of data and write-once-read-many (WORM) media.
The TS2250 tape drive is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup and low-cost, archival storage of their data. TS2250 provides a physical storage capacity of up to 3.0 TB (with 2:1 compression) in conjunction with the IBM LTO Ultrium 1.5 TB data cartridge, nearly double the capacity of LTO Ultrium 4 cartridges.
With the SuperSpeed USB-3 feature on the TS2250 tape drives, customers can benefit from native USB-3 for plug-and-play installation.
SuperSpeed USB will deliver up to 10 times the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, as well as improved power efficiency. The TS2250 (3580-H5S) also supports dual-port SAS attachment on IBM systems.
