IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive Performance
This white paper examines the performance benchmarks of the IBM® System Storage® LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Drive which uses technology specifically designed for the midrange open systems environment. It features hardware encryption of data, two interface options, and two form factors. The native data rate of up to 160 MB/s represents a 14% increase over the previous IBM LTO-5 tape drive. Offering a new generation of data cartridge, the LTO-6 tape drive provides a native capacity of 2500GB (6250GB with 2.5:1 compression) -- a 67% capacity increase from the previous generation.
