We are looking at the new LTO2 tape drives.  Though if your 820 is like our
820, you cannot add the PCI-x LVD card to run it.  There is a new 23 tape
LTO2 library that fiber attaches and the card is available for a PCI based
820.  If you have the PCI-x card based 820 or an expansion tower that is
PCI-x based then I would go with the 7 tape LVD attached LTO2 drive.  I do
not remember the model number.  (3581?)

For UPS I use and recommend the Powerware line of systems.  We have the 12
slot 9170 set up at 16kva and expandable to 32kva.  We put the Ethernet
adapter in it and can monitor and control the UPS from our desk top.  It
also sends e-mail when the power fails directly to a distribution list that
includes all of our pagers and cell phones.  With VPN I can monitor the
power failure from home and see the run time remaining.  A sweet system.

We are looking to purchase a UPS for our AS400 (820) for emergency purposes.
It is already on a UPS with other equipment, but we need one for the AS400
only as a backup. Can anyone recommend any vendors or models?

We are also looking for a new tape drive unit. We are currently using 3570
and need something faster, not necessarily one that will hold more data on a
tape, although I figure the two will probably come together. We perform
multiple backups at the same time (we have two 3570 drives) so that may be a
factor as well. Again, any recommendations?
