Marketing Information

The IBM Half High LTO Gen 3 SAS Tape Drive is the entry point into IBM's Linear Tape-Open (LTO) tape technology family and can be the answer to growing storage requirements and shrinking backup windows. By leveraging advanced LTO technology and a slender half-height form factor, this enterprise drive is suited for handling the backup, save and restore and archival data storage needs of a wide range of System x and BladeCenter environments.

The IBM Half High LTO Gen 3 SAS Tape Drive is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup or low-cost, real-time archiving of their data within a small window of time. This 3rd-generation LTO-3 drive provides up to twice the storage capacity, up to 800 GB (with 2:1 compression), and up to three times the performance, up to 160 Mbps (with 2:1 compression), of the preceding LTO-2 half-high technology.
