A customer is impressed by the cost savings shown in the IBM proposal to consolidate their tape infrastructure replacing Oracle 9840 and 9940 tape drives with TS1140. However they are concerned about replacing their 9840 drives as they have a specific workload which requires fast access to the data. What is the best response to this concern?
instead of a specific drive type for the workload, using the IBM Economy Data Cartridge provides the required fast access
A customer proposes to install a TS7740 to replace a competitor's mainframe library. The customer already uses a TS3500 with only LTO-2 drives installed, and it is proposed to use this library for the TS7740 attached drives.

Select two key items that are associated with the TS7700 Hardware Installation planning worksheets. (Select two)
Composite Library ID
Customer IP addresses for the IP replication and Management Interface
A customer has installed two TS7700 Virtualization Engines in a grid configuration for disaster recovery. Cluster U is local to the production hosts, and Cluster 1 is located in the remote DR center with no host processors. They want to maximize the probability that recently written logical volumes are in the cache of Cluster 1 in case of a loss of Cluster U, while maintaining copies in both clusters. Which Copy Consistency Point settings are most appropriate to use?
Cluster U = DR. Cluster 1 = DR
In a TS3500 with ALMS enabled, which task can be completed by using the Tape Library Specialist Web interlace only, and not by using the operator panel?
Creating or removing a logical library
What is a key characteristic of a disaster recovery (DR) solution compared to a high availability (HA) solution?
DR protects from outage of a complete site while HA protects from outage of one or several individual elements in the IT infrastructure
Which of the following best describes the TS1140 EastSync function?
Uses a non-volatile cache for small transaction sizes (less than 204 MB compressed)
A proposed design includes a TS7700 and one 3952 frame with three installed 3592-007 tape controllers. What is needed to provide high availability library management for the native tape drives in the TS3500?
Logical library option P04444 in the first two 007s
To install an IBM 3592-007 with attached drives housed in a TS3500 Tape Library, which of the following is required?
IBM 3952 frame with switches installed either in 3952 frame or one of the TS3500 frames
A customer wants to double the capacity and throughput capability of the existing TS3510 Tape Library. The available free space in the data center is limited so 324 frames must be included in the proposal. Which fact must the technical specialist take into account in order to meet the customer requirements?
324 frames do not provide the option for adding tape drives
What function does the TS7700 Sync Mode Copy enable or perform?
When the host application issues an explicit synchronize operation all previously written records are replicated to another cluster
What is the maximum number of 3490 control units that can be defined in HOD for a TS7700?
According to the IBM TS7700 Performance white paper, why does it show that a T67720 has only a sustained I/O performance and a TS7740 has a sustained AND peak I/O performance?
The TS7740 has to do pre-migration tasks at a certain point of operation
A customer has a TS3500 Tape Library with TS1140 Tape Drives, but does not have the High Availability' feature. If the accessory fails, which activity must be performed to resume operations?
Contact IBM support
After a requirements analysis including the use of the Batch Magic tool, it has been determined that a TS7740 four-way grid is the most appropriate solution, with two clusters in each of two sites. The customer wants to have four copies of the data, (one in each cluster), but also to minimize the data sent over the network between the sites.
