IBM TS3500 Tape Library with System z Attachment: A Practical Guide to TS1120 Tape Drives and TS3500 Tape Automation

The IBM System Storage TS3500 Tape Library, formerly known as the IBM TotalStorage 3584 Tape Library, is designed for medium to large automated tape storage and backup solutions and is part of a whole family of tape libraries for small to large tape automation solutions. Originally designed for IBM Linear Tape Open Ultrium Technology drives, the library was enhanced to also support the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Tape Drive 3592 in preparation of System z server attachment. Together with the IBM System Storage 3953 Tape System, the TS3500 Tape Library now attaches to System z servers as well as to Open Systems hosts. This IBM Redbooks publication discusses the enhancements that allow attachment of the IBM System Storage TS3500 Tape Library to System z host systems through the IBM System Storage 3953 Tape System, which consists of the IBM System Storage 3953 Model L05 Library Manager and the Model F05 Frame. These enhancements significantly broaden the attachment options of the TS3500 Tape Library, which is well established in Open Systems environments, and they allow nearly all platforms to share a single tape library. Starting with a detailed description of the architecture and design of the System z attachment of the IBM 3584 Tape Library, we provide you with a detailed description of the planning, implementation, and migration tasks. We also provide guidance for tasks related to day-to-day operation and monitoring. This second version of this book has been updated with the IBM System Storage TS7700 Virtualization Engine, with TS1120 Tape Drive Model E05 and TS1120 Tape Controller Model C06, and with the IBM Tape Encryption solution provided through the latest TS1120 and TS3500 products.
