The IBM® Virtualization Engine TS7700 provides tape virtualization for the IBM System z® environment. The Virtualization Engine TS7700 is designed to provide improved performance and capacity to help lower the total cost of ownership for tape processing. It introduces a new modular, scalable, high-performing architecture for mainframe tape virtualization. The TS7700 is available as the TS7740 R1.5, which brings significant enhancements over its previous release and now also comes as a disk-only solution, the TS7720, that does not require physical tape attachment.

The Virtualization Engine TS7700 integrates the advanced performance, capacity, and data integrity design of the 3592 Tape Drives, the IBM industry-leading tape technology, with high-performance disk and a new advanced IBM System p® server to form a storage hierarchy managed by robust storage management firmware with extensive self management capability. It includes functions such as advanced policy management to control physical volume pooling, cache management, dual copy, dual copy across a grid network, and copy mode control. The TS7700 offers enhanced statistical reporting and a single, standards-based management interface for TS7700 management. In addition to providing a detailed description of the Virtualization Engine TS7700 models, this book discusses the tasks involved with planning, implementing, and operating the Virtualization Engine TS7700, as well as describing migration considerations.

This IBM Redbooks® publication covers the Virtualization Engine TS7740 Release 1.5 and the Virtualization Engine TS7720 and includes information about supported tape drives and libraries current at the time of writing.
