The V3 TapeServer is built on a new hardware platform. It offers 2 new models: TS444L and TS442F. These new models both come with 4 GigE network ports. In addition, the TS444L comes with 4, Ultra-320 SCSI ports. The TS442F comes with 2, 2G Fibre Channel ports.
Due to the fact that the hardware platforms are different, the firmware for the V3 TapeServer will not work on the V2 TapeServer and vice versa. V2 firmware releases are identified by version numbers form 0.x.x through 3.x.x. The V3 firmware releases are identified by versions 4.x.x and up.
