The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 448 Tape Drive is HP's fourth-generation of LTO tape drive technology capable of storing up to 1.6TB per cartridge in under 3 hours. HP Ultrium half-height drives are designed for server customers in direct attached storage (DAS) environments where hard disk and system bottlenecks can impede data transfer rates. To further protect the most sensitive data, AES 256-bit hardware data encryption provides easy-to-enable security to prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges.
The Tandberg LTO-3 HH delivers a compressed storage capacity of 800GB per data cartridge and a compressed data transfer rate of 432GB per hour, two and a half times faster than the previous generation Ultrium tape drive. The Tandberg LTO-3 HH Tape Drive is fully read and write compatible with all second-generation Ultrium media and offers further investment protection through its backward-read compatibility with first-generation Ultrium media.
