IBM expands tape drive deal

IBM will sell Exabyte's M2 line of tape storage drives for Big Blue's iSeries line of special-purpose computers, the companies said Wednesday. The move expands an alliance that began in September in which IBM began selling the drives for its pSeries Unix servers. The tape systems will be called the IBM 7208 Model 345 and have 60-terabyte or 150-terabyte capacity. Over the product line's history, more than 700,000 iSeries servers have been shipped, most of them under its former name, AS/400.
