Formatted Pertec Tape Drive Emulation with Remote Network Access

The TES-2IP is an extension of the TES-2, stand-alone, reel-to-reel tape drive replacement. The TES-2IP adds ethernet connectivity for remote access to tape files via LAN or WAN. If you haven't already, please review the information on the TES-2.

The TES-2IP-AFD is a direct replacement for a tape drive using the formatted Pertec protocol. The TES-2IP is connected to the host computer or electronic system using the same cables, controller and software. In your application, the TES-2IP will look to the host computer just like the original tape drive.

Files are stored on a the solid state (network enabled) ARRAID Flash Drive (AFD), the industrial grade CompactFlash (CF) media takes the place of tape reels. When the computer system and drive are remote, and LAN/WAN access eliminates the need to move physical media, then the fixed ARRAID Flash Drive (AFD) may be used as the primary storage device. Where the movement or storage of media with recorded information is still required, then the ARRAID Flash Drive device can be set as either a removable hard drive module or a removable media cartridge disk drive.

The TES-2IP-AFD is much more than just a tape drive replacement. Using  the FLASH2GUI interface or ftp, an operator at a central location can access the TES-2IP and control the "tape drive". Software in the TES-2IP-AFD allows the operator to extract information from the ARRAID Flash Drive (AFD)  from the tape image format to disk files, and then transfer those files to a central location via the LAN/WAN.

Bi-directional Backup/Restore is fully supported. Multiple backups can be stored on the system/network disk in the TES-2IP-AFD and restored as required. Alternatively, backup images can be uploaded and stored in a central archive. If a Restore is required, the image can be downloaded from archive and restored to the remote host.

The TES-2IP-AFD is ideal for use in remote data collection and logging functions. Applications exist in telephony, seismology, meteorology and military ranges.
