Executive Summary

The IBM TotalStorage 3494 Virtual Tape Server (VTS) revolutionized the way zSeries customers utilize their tape resources. As the capability of the underlying tape technology progressed from 3590 Model B1A tape drives and High Performance Cartridge Tape, through the E1A and H1A model drives and Extended High Performance Cartridge Tape, the base VTS and its high availability Peer to Peer (PTP VTS) configuration have been able to transparently utilize the increased capacity. One of the aspects of the migration from the 3590 B1A models through the H1A models, was the ability of the newer models to read the data cartridges written by the older models.
