TS1140 Technology tape drives have several advantages:
High Capacity. With 4.0 TB native (12.0 TB compressed @ 3:1) you can consolidate your critical storage, simplify media management, and confidently protect your data.
Fast Performance. Experience shorter backup windows and improved data access with the fastest tape drive on the market, delivering native data transfer rates of 250 MB/s and compressed data transfer rates of up to 650 MB/s.
Reliability. 237,000 hour MTBF to meet demanding uptime requirements and ensure data is available when it's needed.
Information Security. Supporting data encryption and key management practices.
- Larger Buffer
The main buffer size of 1 GB improves drive agility, file access, and small file handling. Furthermore, the buffer reduces backhitches for all workloads and improves the overall write and read performance.
12 read / write speed levels ranging from 30 MB/s to 250 MB/s allow the drive to stream data transfer to the tape from slower hosts. Coupled with the larger buffer, improved speed matching enables better throughput and reliability in environments where host data rates are less than optimal.
- Read Ahead
Buffer size capable of reading ahead and caching up to 1,000 MB of compressed data delivers better performance in short-hop file locate operations.
High Resolution Tape Directory and Virtual Backhitch
Improves performance for small file reads/writes while also reducing wear and tear on tape media.
