    Product Description

    The IBM 7208 Model 345 60 GB External 8mm Tape Drive is a stand-alone, SCSI, streaming tape drive that attaches to the pSeries and RS/6000 as well as the iSeries and AS/400 family of workstations and servers. It provides a media capacity of 60 GB (150 GB with 2.5:1 compression) data storage per cartridge and a sustained data rate of 12 MB per second (30 MB per second with 2.5:1 compression). This is three times the capacity and four times the data rate of the IBM 7208 Model 341. The Model 345 features data compression hardware using Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC), a state-of-the-art data compression technique developed by IBM. It also utilizes the IBM Mammoth-2 Advanced Metal Evaporated (AME) media data cartridge with SmartClean technology.

    In addition to reading and writing on IBM Mammoth-compatible 8mm advanced metal-evaporated (AME) data cartridges, the 7208 Model 345 also provides backward read compatibility with previous 20.0 GB 8mm AME tape cartridges. The 7208 Model 345 is an excellent migration and interchange path from other 8mm tape drives and is a cost-effective solution for save-and-restore and archiving functions.

    The 7208 Model 345 is a 60 GB external 8mm tape drive with a sustained data transfer rate of 12 MB per second. It features data compression hardware providing an effective capacity of up to 150 GB and an effective transfer rate of 30 MB per second, depending on the characteristics of the data transferred. User productivity is enhanced with the three times larger capacity and four times improved data rate over the previous 7208 Model 341 for pSeries and AS/400 and the 7208 Model 342 for iSeries and AS/400. It thus provides a more cost-effective solution for save-and-restore and archiving functions.
