IBM Ups Tape-storage Ante



In the two-horse race that's the high-end tape-storage market, IBM pulled perhaps a neck ahead of rival Storage Technology Corp. last week with the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Tape Drive 3592. According to IBM, the 3592 can store 300 Gbytes of data and transfer data at a rate of 40 Mbytes per second. By year's end, IBM hopes to add write-once capabilities to the 3592 for customers who need the added security. Starting out, the 3592 is priced at $32,000.
