LTO-3 400/800GB Internal LVD SCSI Tape Drive (Three Year Warranty)
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 960 Tape Drive
represents HP's third-generation of LTO tape drive technology. Positioned as the
highest capacity drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 960 features an
800 GB compressed (2:1) storage capacity using new LTO 3 media. By doubling the
capacity of current Ultrium drives, HP customers now require fewer data
cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs
and increasing their ROI. The Ultrium 960 also features a compressed (2:1) data
transfer rate of 160 MB/s. Using a new 16-channel recording head, an Ultra320
SCSI interface, and increases in media tracks and bit density, the HP Ultrium
960 sets a new performance benchmark as the world's fastest tape drive. For
customers that continually experience shrinking backup windows, the Ultrium 960
is the ideal direct-attach backup storage solution for enterprise and mid-range
server, as well as entry-level hard drive arrays.
The Ultrium 960 supports the industry's most
comprehensive list of compatible hardware and software platforms. Each drive
option includes a single-server version of HP Data Protector (license) and
Yosemite TapeWare (CD) backup software, as well as support for HP StorageWorks
One-Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR) and HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools
(L&TT). The Ultrium 960 Tape Drive is fully read and write compatible with all
second-generation Ultrium media, and adds a further degree of investment
protection with the ability to read all first-generation Ultrium media as well.
The Ultrium 960 also represents HP's first tape drive solution to deliver
support for Write-Once, Read-Many (WORM) media. This feature allows customers to
easily integrate a cost-effective solution to secure, manage, and archive
compliant data records to meet stringent industry regulations. HP customers can
