Begin Jaren 80 introduceerde IBM het gebruik van tape cartridges in de tape storage industrie t.b.v. grotere IT omgevingen,. Tot dan bestond de opslag voornamelijk uit open reel magnetic tape opslag.
IBM`s technologie werd al snel in de storage industrie aangenomen de facto standaard. IBM is voor wat betreft de ontwikkeling van Tape drives en grotere tape libraries smaakmaker geweest. Veel andere vendoren(Dell, Oracle, Quantum enz) maakten gebruik van IBM tape drives. Naast de enterprise tape storage formaten werkte IBM met DDS/DAT, DLT and LTO platformen.

Tape drive reparatie, autoloaders en tape libraries reparatie of revisie, Spare parts en loader/library componenten, Robot ,  pickers, controllers beschikbaar.  Problemen met tape storage softwarelagen en error logs snel en vakkundig uitgelezen. Oude tape media wordt veiliggesteld en op verzoek vernietigd. Defecte tape drive en tape library omruil service bespreekbaar. End of life service en life cycle management mogelijk.  6 maanden garantie, 12 maanden is bespreekbaar. Grote tape storage omgevingen worden op locatie geserviced.

Certified LTO Tape Media service tegen tape media meerprijs. Hierbij laat men de LTO tape cartridge inlopen op een specialistische tape behandelaar. Zodat  het tape oppervlak schoon en gelijkmatig wordt. Hierdoor hebben koppen van tape drives een langere levensduur.

IBM TS3310 Tape Library
IBM TS3310 offers simple, rapid expansion as processing needs grow. This tape library allows you to start small, with only a single 5U high library. Over time, as your need for capacity expands, you can add additional 9U expansion modules, each of which contains space for additional cartridges, tape drives and a redundant power supply. The entire system grows vertically. Currently, available configurations include the 5U base library module and a 5U base, with up to four 9U expansion modules.
