    Marketing Information

    The IBM Ultrium 5 technology is designed to provide greater capacity with continued support for encryption of data. The hardware encryption and decryption core and control core resides in the IBM Ultrium 5 tape drive (available to the TS3200 with the 6 Gigabits per second (Gbps) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and 8 Gbps Fibre Channel (FC) interface). A larger internal data buffer in the Full Height drive helps improve data access rates and reduce cartridge fill and rewind times along with dynamic channel calibration to help increase data throughput. In addition to reading and writing to LTO 5 tape cartridges, the LTO 5 tape drive can read and write to LTO 4 cartridges and read LTO 3 cartridges with improved data rates. The IBM Ultrium 5 tape drive is designed to support up to 140 MegaBytes per second (MBps) native data-transfer rates and up to 1.5 TeraByte (TB) native physical capacity when using the IBM System Storage Ultrium 1.5 TB Data Cartridge (3.0 TB with 2:1 compression).
