If there was a “Tape Backup Month” May would probably be it (around here, anyway).

We have been fielding plenty of questions on tape this month and moving a lot of inventory. One of the more popular drives is the IBM System Storage 3580S5E.
It’s an LTO-5 unit and half height. LTO-5 has great pricing now as it’s one generation behind the LTO-6 leader.
(See our LTO comparison chart for full LTO5 specs)

If your looking for specs on this drive, this should help out.
When you’re ready, give us a call 855-932-6627.
