IBM Introduces Diamondback Tape Library


This high-capacity, long-term storage solution is physically air-gapped for increased security.

IBM recently introduced the Diamondback Tape Library, “a high-density archival storage solution that is physically air-gapped to help protect against ransomware and other cyber threats in hybrid cloud environments.”

The Diamondback Tape Library is aimed at organizations needing to secure hundreds of petabytes of data, such as hyperscale cloud providers and global enterprises aggregating massive data sets, according to the announcement. “It provides long-term storage and is designed to provide a significantly smaller carbon footprint compared to flash or disk storage, and with a lower total cost of ownership.”

The main benefits of IBM Diamondback, the announcement says, include:

  • Sustainability
  • Ransomware protection and cyber resiliency
  • Data capacity and storage costs

“The IBM Diamondback Tape Library provides critical protection against a variety of threats, helping minimize data center floor space requirements and organizations’ carbon footprint,” says Scott Baker, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of IBM Storage.
