With its launch, IBM's enterprise-class tape encryption functionality is now incorporated into several LTO 4 tape storage products for the mid-market.
IBM's new tape systems offer improved data rates of up to 240Mbytes per second, which is 50% faster than LTO Generation 3, and increased cartridge capacity up to 1.6Tbytes, double the capacity of LTO 3.
The IBM System Storage LTO 4 tape storage systems start at £2,720 for the IBM System Storage TS2340 Tape Drive LVD SCSI version.
