It describes both general LTO technology specifications and specific details of the unique design of IBM Ultrium tape drives and libraries. This seventh edition of the book includes information about the latest enhancements to the IBM Ultrium family of tape drives and tape libraries. In addition, we have included a brief description of the new IBM TS1130 Tape Drive, which can be installed in the IBM TS3500 Tape Library for Open Systems hosts. You will find technical information about each of the IBM tape products for Open Systems, including generalized sections about Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and Fibre Channel connections, Multi-Path Architecture configurations, and new IBM System Storage™ TS3500 features, such as the Advanced Library Management System (ALMS) and virtual I/O. The book also includes a detailed discussion of tools and techniques for library management. This book is intended for anyone who wants to understand more about the general LTO technology specification and how it came about, as well as the IBM implementation of that specification. It is suitable for IBM clients, IBM Business Partners, IBM specialist sales representatives, and technical specialists. If you do not have a background in computer tape storage products, you might need to reference other sources of information. In the interest of being concise, topics that are generally understood are not covered in detail.The team that wrote this book This book was produced by a team of specialists from around the world working at the International Technical Support Organization, San Jose Center.
