    The IBM TS4500 Tape Library is a next-generation tape solution that offers higher storage density and better integrated management than previous solutions.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication gives you a close-up view of the new IBM TS4500 Tape Library. In the TS4500, IBM® delivers the density that today’s and tomorrow’s data growth requires. It has the cost-effectiveness and the manageability to grow with business data needs, while you preserve investments in IBM Tape Library products.

    Now, you can achieve a low per-terabyte cost and high density (HD), with up to 13 PB of data (up to 39 PB compressed) in a single 10 square-foot library by using Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 9 cartridges or 11 PB with IBM 3592 cartridges.

    This book describes the TS4500 components, feature codes, specifications, supported tape drives, encryption, new integrated management console (IMC), command-line interface (CLI), and REST over SCSI (RoS) to obtain status information about library components.

    This publication is for anyone who wants to understand more about the IBM TS4500 tape library. It is particularly suitable for IBM clients, IBM Business Partners, IBM specialist sales representatives, and technical specialists.
