The Most Reliable Tape Technology Ever Developed — TS1150 Technology

BIG NEWS FOR BIG TAPE: TS1150 Technology

Click the watch link below for an in-depth look at TS tape technology

TS1150 Technology offers the most reliable tape technology ever developed. Designed to provide enterprise-class reliability with 24 x 7 usage.

In addition to robust reliability and data integrity, the TS1150 Technology offers the largest capacity per tape and the fastest data rate of any tape technology available. This translates into fewer tapes needed to store the same amount of data, less labor and time to manage the tape inventory, and reduced library, application and offsite slot costs. Superior performance provides customers with the ability to get the same amount of work done with fewer drives and reduced support costs.

Equally important is the investment protection offered by this technology. With significant gains in both capacity and data rate with every new generation; 300% increase in capacity and 56% increase in data rate from TS1130 Technology to TS1140 Technology and 150% increase in capacity and a 44% increase in data rate from TS1140 to TS1150 Technology.

High Capacity
With 10 TB native (25 TB compressed @ 2.5:1) you can consolidate your critical storage, simplify media management, and confidently protect your data. In fact, a FFinity EE can hold 1EB of TS1150 media in a single library.

Fast Performance
Experience shorter backup windows and improved data access with the fastest tape drive on the market, delivering native data transfer rates of 360 MB/s and compressed data transfer rates of 700 MB/s.

TS1150 Technology Tape Drive Features

Digital Speed Matching is a technique that adjusts the physical tape speed to match the actual effective data rate on the host interface as closely as possible. Speed matching enables better performance and reliability.

Large Data Buffer (2GB internal data buffer) minimizes speed mismatches between the tape drive and host application improving data throughput and reducing wear and tear on the drive and media.

High Resolution Tape Directory enables the drive to reach the target data block in a single high speed seek operation without redundant search operations thereby improving access performance to the data.

Backwards Compatibility
with TS1150 technology tape drives allows reformatting of the previous generation 3592 JC tape cartridge – improving capactiy from 4 TB to 7 TB and performance from 250 MB/sec to 300 MB/s data rate.

Linear Tape File System (LTFS)
allows users to organize and search the contents of a tape with the same methodology as a hard disk, improving access time to data. LTFS also makes it possible to drag and drop files in the same manner as disk.
