The System Storage TS2240 Tape Drive is an excellent tape storage solution for businesses requiring backup or low-cost, real-time archival storage of their data. The TS2240, with a half-height form factor, offers the same high capacity of full-height LTO-4 tape drives. The TS2240 has a physical storage capacity of up to 1.6 TB (with 2:1 compression) in conjunction with the IBM System Storage LTO Ultrium 800 GB data cartridge, which provides up to twice the capacity of Ultrium 3 cartridges. The native data transfer performance of the TS2240 Tape Drive has increased over the previous LTO half-height generation to up to 120 MB/sec. The TS2240 Tape Drive continues to provide an excellent alternative to slower and smaller capacity 1/4-inch, 4 mm and 8 mm digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT) drives.
