Description

Exhaustively tested, HPE LTO-6 Ultrium cartridges meet all your demands for maximum reliability when restoring data, offering high storage density, ease of management and scalable storage and backup performance. Covering eight generations of capacity – LTO-1 (200 GB), LTO-2 (400 GB), LTO-3 (800 GB), LTO-4 (1.6 TB), LTO-5 (3 TB), LTO-6 (6.25 TB), LTO-7 (15 TB) and LTO-8 (30 TB) – and with transfer speeds of up to 2.7 TB/hr for LTO-8, there is a platform for every need and budget. From LTO-3 onwards, LTO Ultrium WORM cartridges enable the creation of compliant, permanent and tamper-proof archives. From LTO-4 onwards, secure AES-256 encryption provides even higher levels of data security and compliance with the most stringent industry regulations to prevent unauthorized data access. From LTO-5 onwards, HPE LTO Ultrium Linear Tape File System makes using tape as easy, flexible, portable and intuitive as using other removable and shareable media, such as a USB drive.

What’s new

  • Massive increase in capacity: 700% improvement versus LTO-5 and 380% capacity versus LTO-6 (assume native data capacity)
  • Significant increase in performance – possible to store 2.7 TB/hr using LTO-8.
  • Built-in AES 256-bit encryption (IEEE1619.1) (LTO-4, LTO-5, LTO-6, LTO-7, LTO-8) – granted FIPS140-2 Level 1 certification.

Features

Highest Capacity and Performance of any Comparable Tape Technology

  • HPE LTO-8 Ultrium can write or read data at a blistering 2.7 TB/hour, storing, encrypting and protecting up to 30 TB on a single cartridge, making it ideal for large-scale, 24 x 7, mission-critical IT environments (assumes 2.5:1 compression).
  • An 85% increase in the number of tracks and a 8% increase in bit density has permitted an increase in capacity from 15 TB for LTO-7 to 30 TB to LTO-8: from 3,584 tracks for LTO-6 to 6,656 tracks for 8th generation HPE LTO-8 Ultrium 30 TB cartridges (assuming 2.5:1 compression).
  • HPE LTO Ultrium cartridge memory chip delivers faster access time and enhanced media monitoring.
  • First time restore ensured with fewer media failures and disrupted backups, regardless of duty cycle or environmental conditions.
