Re: New 358x tape drives



fixed

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.

New 358x tape drives






In upgrading to a new i5, I will be looking at replacing the 3570 dual 
tape
drive I have.

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.
