Features

  • High performance, high capacity, low cost
  • 4th generation HP LTO-4 Ultrium 1.6 TB Data Cartridges combine high capacity, low cost per GB and AES-256 encyption, reinforced by the HP Brand specification – the industry’s most demanding media quality standard. New basefilm and coating technology has increased the bit density of the media, allowing more data to be saved in the same physical space. With 896 data tracks compared to only 704 tracks for LTO-3, the capacity of the tape has doubled.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) version provides tamperproof, compliant data storage.
  • Data encryption for enhanced data security.
  • Standardizing on HP LTO-4 delivers the capacity to meet shrinking backup windows, industry-standard, AES 256-bit encryption (IEEE1619.1), and interchangeable RW or WORM media; without extra space or IT resource overhead.
  • Open standard technology ensures compatibility across product generations and gives you more choice. LTO-4 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.
