IBM® TS4300 Tape Library

ATTO has certified a solution that enables data centers to share  IBM® TS4300 Tape Libraries across an Ethernet network using an ATTO XstreamCORE® 8200 intelligent Bridge.

ATTO XstreamCORE 8200 is a 1U bridge that allows IBM tape libraries to connect to Ethernet networks. Each bridge will allow a maximum of 64 local or remote hosts to connect with up to 16 SAS tape drives using the iSCSI or iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA using RoCE V2) protocols.

When combined with IBM TS4300 tape libraries, users have a solution that provides Ethernet connected LTO tape for open-compute, cloud-based and hyperscale environments.

ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 allows IBM TS4300 tape library users:

  • Long distance backups/restores

  • Highly scalable architecture

  • Easily share across multiple hosts

  • Fewer fabric switch ports required

  • Added backup diagnostic capabilities

  • Simple setup & configuration

  • Negligible added latency
