Ultrium LTO Roadmap

Features

High performance, high capacity

3rd generation HP LTO Ultrium 800 GB Data Cartridges offer high capacity and a low cost per GB, reinforced by the HP Brand specification – the industry’s most demanding media quality standard. With 704 data tracks compared to only 512 tracks for LTO-2, the capacity of the tape has doubled. In a HP LTO-3 Ultrium 960 tape drive, the media is capable of backing up 576 GB/hr in compressed mode.

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.

Ultra-reliable

Superior 'smart grabber' mechanism and mechanical interlock to prevent the leader pin from being pulled inside the tape housing. Sensors detect proper connection and prevent leader loss that would ruin the tape.

Simplified tape path to reduce wear and tear and build up of and debris (important in automation).

HP brand qualification test procedures (load/unload, shoeshine, drop testing and environmental stress testing) go far beyond what is required for the LTO Ultrium logo. This ensures maximum reliability for restoring your data.

HP warrants LTO Ultrium cartridges for up to 30 years archival life and/or 260 full backups. This ensures businesses can meet the ever-increasing demands of regulation for data retention and archiving.

Secure

Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) version provides tamperproof, compliant data storage.

Value for money

Standardizing on HP LTO Ultrium delivers the capacity to meet shrinking backup windows with extra performance and capacity.

Open standard technology ensures compatibility across product generations and gives you more choice. LTO-3 cartridges are available as non-labeled, Custom Labeled, Non-Custom Labeled, RFID labeled and Eco Case versions to fit with your data centre management criteria.
