Capacity and Performance

The IBM 3580-H5S is a LTO-5 Half-High SAS external tape drive. It has a capacity of 1.5TB (compressed) or 3TB (uncompressed). LTO (Linear Tape-Open) is a widely-used tape storage technology that offers high capacity and performance for archival and backup data. The LTO-5 generation of tapes offers a native data storage capacity of 1.5TB and a compressed data storage capacity of 3TB. SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) is a high-speed data transfer interface used to connect the tape drive to a host computer. The "Half-High" form factor refers to the physical size of the tape drive, which is smaller than a full-height drive, making it more suitable for use in space-constrained environments.

Data Encryption and Security Features

The 3580-H5S IBM 1.50TB/3TB LTO-5 HH SAS External Tape Drive is equipped with data encryption and security features that provide an added layer of protection for the data stored on the tape.

  • Encryption: The tape drive uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption to protect the data stored on the tape. This ensures that the data cannot be accessed or read without the correct encryption key.
  • Tape Drive Authentication: The tape drive uses a unique key to authenticate itself to the host server. This ensures that only authorized tape drives can access the data stored on the tape.
  • Media Authentication: The tape drive uses a unique media key to authenticate the tape itself. This ensures that only authorized tapes can be used with the tape drive.
  • Data Integrity: The tape drive uses cyclic redundancy check (CRC) algorithms to ensure the integrity of the data stored on the tape. This ensures that any data that is corrupted or tampered with will be detected and cannot be accessed.
  • Encryption Key Management: The tape drive uses a key management system to securely store and manage the encryption keys used to encrypt the data. This ensures that the keys cannot be accessed or stolen by unauthorized parties.

Tape Management and Backup Solutions

The IBM 3580-H5S is a high-performance external tape drive that uses LTO-5 (Linear Tape-Open) technology. It is available in two storage capacities: 1.50TB (uncompressed) or 3TB (compressed). The drive uses a SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface for connecting to a host system, and is designed for use in a variety of tape management and backup solutions.

One of the key features of the IBM 3580-H5S is its high-speed data transfer rate. The drive can read and write data at up to 280MB/s (uncompressed) or up to 140MB/s (compressed), making it ideal for large-scale data backup and archiving.

The drive also features an advanced tape management system that allows for easy organization and retrieval of data. This includes features such as automatic data compression, data encryption, and support for multiple tape formats. Additionally, the drive's design allows for easy integration into existing tape management and backup solutions, making it a versatile option for businesses of all sizes.

The IBM 3580-H5S also includes a variety of advanced features designed to improve the reliability and longevity of stored data. This includes support for hardware-based data encryption, which helps to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access, as well as advanced error correction and data recovery features that help to minimize the risk of data loss.
