Fujitsu M8100: Blazing Speed with Storage to Grow

Fujitsu M8100 IBM-Compatible 3590 Tape Drive

The M8100, Fujitsu's 128-track half inch cartridge tape drive, is a new generation tape drive to meet the critical mission data environment needs for high speed, large capacity and full format compatibility with IBM® 3590™ Magstar™.


Extended Warranty for Tape Drives

Our Extended Service eliminates hourly repair bills and puts you at the front of the line for tape drive repair. We repair many brands and formats of tape drives:

  • HP 88780/7980- based 9-track tape drives, including Tandem 5170, Tandem 5175, IBM 9348, Sun, Scitex, Sequent, AT&T, NCR;
  • 18-track, 36-track, 128-track, 256-track and 384-track SCSI by Xcerta, Fujitsu, Tandem, IBM, Sequent, Qualstar, Overland Data, JVC, MP Tapes, VDS. (Formats: 3480, 3490, 3490e, 3590, 3590e, 3590h.)
  • Don't wait till trouble finds you. Call 800-432-8638/563-355-1212 today.


    The M8100 transfer rate (13.5MB/s Native) is 4.5 MB/s faster than the IBM 3590 Magstar (9.0MB/s Native). In addition, the M8100 boasts a Mean-Time-Between-Failure (MTBF) rating of 100,000 hours, among the highest in the industry, and is covered by a two-year limited warranty.

    Utilizing Fujitsu's state of the art design technology, the bezel and cartridge opening are the same form factor and location as previous Fujitsu half-inch cartridge tape drives.

    Moreover, the new high density read/write magnetic tape head creates increased recording density and the highly reliable tracking control system achieves greater track density. The formatter and Ultra-SCSI host interface are integrated into the same 8-inch form factor drive cabinet. Therefore, tape drive systems currently using the Fujitsu half-inch cartridge tape drive series, can be easily upgraded with the new M8100 for increased capacity and performance with less integration investment.

    With these new technologies and Fujitsu's reputation for high quality tape products, the M8100 is the perfect solution for mission critical data environments as well as a various range of applications for near-line transaction and back-up streaming modes.

    Available variations of the M8100: M8100A2, M8100AA2, M8100AF2.
