HIGH-CAPACITY TAPE MEDIA ENGINEERED FOR THE ENTERPRISE
The IBM® 3592 tape cartridges are designed to help enterprise data centres satisfy increasing demands for data retention, security and availability while working with reduced budgets.
IBM 3592 tape cartridges support media re-use by enabling the drive to reformat and upgrade prior generation media cartridges. That means existing media cartridges achieve both improved performance and capacity which helps you mitigate the impact of a tape subsystem upgrade.

With enterprise tape libraries holding thousands of cartridges, the affordability of keeping the technology current can be significantly impacted by the cost of upgrading the tape media. IBM 3592 tape cartridges support media re-use by enabling the drive to reformat and upgrade prior generation media cartridges. That means existing media cartridges achieve both improved performance and capacity which helps you mitigate the impact of a tape subsystem upgrade.
For administrators who require rapid data access or who are looking to lower media costs, IBM offers two different sizes of 3592 tape cartridges. The IBM economy cartridge offers the same quality and benefits as our standard length cartridges, but in a shorter length. This shorter length cartridge is less expensive and enables faster seek times.
Enhanced data security
Data helps your company drive innovation, growth and competitive advantages. Failure to safeguard data can lead to business disruption, lost productivity, negative customer satisfaction and penalties from regulatory violations. The IBM 3592 tape cartridge is designed to protect your data with features such as write-once-read-many (WORM) cartridges, encryption and the ability—in conjunction with the tape drive—to monitor cartridge life. These capabilities work together to help ensure that stored data is secure from loss or corruption.
To meet the rigorous standards of enterprise data centres, the IBM 3592 tape cartridge features a memory chip that stores performance and usage records. These records are used to proactively determine whether the tape needs to be replaced. The cartridge utilises thick plastics, ultrasonic welding techniques and tamper-proof screws to provide protection against accidental damage. And the media uses a uniform, ultra-smooth magnetic layer with a refined coating to improve media reliability, increase performance and minimise tape head wear.
