Jeff, We have a couple of 3581-H17's and a couple of 3582-L23's. The 3582's replaced some 3590's and the 3581's. The 3581's have been moved down to either smaller machines or machines scheduled to go offsite to a DR site. Not familiar with 3581-L23. What used to take both of these 3581's (doing SAVOBJ's of individual objects in one library) using 6 tapes each, now gets done in the same amount of time on 1 drive of the 3582 using 6 tapes. The 3582's kick butt. We used to have 3570's years ago. And, yes, loading tapes into the 3582's is quite reminiscent of the 3570. The operator says the 3582 has the capacity, has the speed, but is a pain to load/unload. Need anymore stat's, a demo, etc contact me.

A BP gave me a quote with 2 3581-L23 drives. In looking on the IBM website, it appears to me that the 3582-L23 can be configured to look like 2 separate drives to the i5 (which is how my 3570 is configured). Assuming the price of a single 3582-L23 is less than 2 3581-L23, is there some reason why would I not just get a 3582-L23? Thanks. -- Jeff Crosby Dilgard Frozen Foods, Inc. P.O. Box 13369 Ft.
