Preserve data cost-effectively with a comprehensive range of tape storage products including autoloaders, drives, libraries, virtual tape systems and IBM Spectrum Archive software. Flash and tape storage use intelligent SDS to combine the cost and performance advantages of flash, tape and SDS. After more than 60 years of tape innovation, IBM continues to push the limits of capacity and the boundaries of tape technology innovation.
IBM Spectrum Archive™, a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage™ family, gives you direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored in IBM tape drives and libraries by incorporating the Linear Tape File System™ (LTFS) format standard for reading, writing and exchanging descriptive metadata on formatted tape cartridges. Spectrum Archive eliminates the need for additional tape management and software to access data. Spectrum Archive offers three software solutions for managing your digital files with the LTFS format: Single Drive Edition, Library Edition and Enterprise Edition
IBM offers a range of Tape Libraries, Virtual Tape, Autoloaders and Enclosures that provide options for multiples drives and form factors. These range from larger enterprise class systems that deliver the highest levels of performance and security in the industry, to solutions that deliver tape automation for those on a tighter budget.
