The article offers information on the firsts in computer storage devices technology. The first tape library product that offers enterprise-level performance and encryption to mid-sized companies, according to IBM, was its System Storage TS3400 which uses TS1120 tape drives and can hold up to 37.8 terabytes of compressed storage. The TS3400 can be partitioned into two logical libraries. The first encrypted redundant array of independent disks array was Siafu Software's Swarm encrypted Internet Protocol storage area network series which make use of the AES-256 encryption. All of its Swarm Series appliances now use the same security acceleration boards as its Sypher Series of tape-encryption appliances.
