The IBM 3590 Magstar Tape Subsystem is part of a portfolio of integrated
storage solutions that deliver high capacity, high performance and
excellent dependability for stand alone and automated systems. The IBM
3590 delivers direct attachment to open systems supporting native FC
connections. The Magstar 3590 has a native drive data rate up to 14
MB/sec, and sustained data rates reach up to 34 MB/sec (with Ultra SCSI
attachment) using the LZ1 compression algorithm.
Using the native FC connection, the Magstar 3590 can reach a maximum
instantaneous data rate of 100 MB/sec and sustained data rates of 42
MB/sec. IBM Magstar models B11, E11 and H11 (loader) are rack-mounted
tape drives with an Automatic Cartridge Facility (ACF).
B11/E11/H11 can be converted to a B1A/E1A/H11 for use in a fully
automated library system. Models B11, E11, and H11 are for standalone
“mini” library configurations in racks and frames. Models B1A, E1A and
H1A are intended to be used in Enterprise Tape Library 3494 and IBM
TotalStorage Silo Compatible Tape Drive Frame.
Upgrading a Model B to a
Model E can double the capacity on existing cartridges and increase
performance potential by up to 50%. Upgrading a Model E to a Model H can
result in a 50% increase in capacity on existing cartridges with the
