Model 3580-L33

The IBM 3580 TotalStorage Tape Drive is designed to offer high capacity, performance, and technology designed for the midrange open systems environment. The 3580 Tape Drive is an external stand-alone or rack-mountable unit and is the entry point for the family of IBM Ultrium tape products. The 3580 Tape Drive provides an excellent migration path from digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT), 1/4-inch, 4mm, or 8mm tape drives.

The IBM 3580 Ultrium 3 Tape Drive Model L33 incorporates the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 3 Tape Drive, which more than doubles maximum tape drive throughput data rate performance over the LTO generation 2 Tape Drive (Ultrium 2), up to 80 MB/sec native data transfer rate. In addition, with the use of the IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 400 GB Data Cartridge the Ultrium 3 Tape Drive doubles the tape cartridge capacity up to 400 GB native physical capacity (800 GB with 2:1 compression). IBM Ultrium 3 Tape Drives can read and write LTO Ultrium 2 Data Cartridges and read LTO Ultrium 1 Data Cartridges. The Model L33 comes with a SCSI Ultra160 LVD attachment, for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers.



The IBM TotalStorage 3580 Tape Drive combines IBM tape reliability and performance at open systems prices. Features of the Ultrium 3 model include:


  • Maximum data transfer rate more than doubled, up to 80 MB/sec native compared to LTO Ultrium 2


  • Cartridge capacity doubled, up to 400 GB native physical capacity per cartridge (800 GB with 2:1 compression)


  • SCSI Ultra160 LVD attachment


  • Enhanced features over Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 2 in the dual stage 16 channel head actuator, the independent tape loader and threader motors, and internal buffer size


  • Adheres to LTO specifications


  • Includes Cable and Terminator
