Sun Microsystems, which acquired StorageTek earlier this year, will discuss its T10000 enterprise tape drive.

2005 11 15 15 36 20 706 T10000 features a native tape drive throughput rate of 120 MB/sec and a capacity of up to 500 GB uncompressed (or a terabyte of compressed data on a single cartridge), according to the firm. It also offers fibre channel and FICON dual-port connectivity.

T10000, which yields a 250% increase in density and a 400% increase in throughput speeds over StorageTek's T9940B drive, is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2005. Future generations will feature expanded capacity up to 1 TB uncompressed on a single cartridge, according to the vendor.
