All IBM 3592 tape cartridges including JL 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 upgrades. 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. The IBM 3592 JL cartridges use a uniform, ultra-smooth magnetic layer with a refined coating to improve media reliability, increase performance and minimize tape head wear.
