HP LTO-4 Ultrium Data Cartridges now offer encryption to help ensure your data is protected.
HP LTO-4 Ultrium Data Cartridges are designed to take full advantage of LTO-4 Ultrium technology and contain features that are exclusive to HP. HP LTO-4 Ultrium Data Cartridges feature active internal head cleaning, self-diagnostic capacities, cartridge memory and are designed for long life and superior reliability.
Fourth generation HP LTO-4 Ultrium 1.6TB RW Data Cartridge combines high capacity, low cost per GB and AES-256 encyption, re-inforced 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 Ultrium 3, the capacity of the tape has doubled.
HP’s Ultrium media is exhaustively qualified for use with HP and non-HP Ultrium products. A continuous testing program in HP’s media laboratory guarantees the high levels of quality uniquely specified by Hewlett-Packard. IT managers, consultants and network administrators will see a significant improvement in back up and restore functions, alleviating the pressure of managing an ever increasing quantity of critical data in an ever decreasing backup window.
HP LTO-4 Ultrium Data Cartridges
• Native AES-256 bit key encryption enabled
• Trasfer speeds up to 240 MB sec. (2:1)
• Up to 1.6 TB on one tape (compressed)
• RW and Worm.
With 1.6TB capacity and 240MB/sec transfer rate, HP LTO-4 Ultrium 4 RW and WORM Data Cartridges offer the highest storage capacity and backup performance of any comparable tape technology. It takes just 8.3 seconds to backup 1GB of data to a HP Ultrium 4 cartridge, compared to 12.5 seconds for Ultrium 3 and over 30 seconds for Ultrium 2.
Smoother base film and smaller magnetic particles increase the bit density, allowing more data to be recorded in the same amount of tape. This has enabled the number of recording tracks to increase from 704 for Ultrium 3, to 896 tracks for 4th generation HP LTO-4 Ultrium 1.6TB cartridges. Smoother, thinner basefilm also enables a longer tape to be packed into the same size cartridge shell, contributing to the increased capacity.
Increased margin between Early Warning End of Media (EWEOM) and End of Media (EOM), which means data on a full tape will fit on to the destination tape when copying tapes. This helps to ensure that complete data sets are maintained on single tapes without the need to span multiple cartridges in an archive, greatly simplifying the management of records and stored data.
HP Ultrium media is exhaustively qualified for use with HP and non-HP Ultrium products. A continuous testing program in HP’s media laboratory guarantees the high levels of quality uniquely specified by Hewlett-Packard. HP has 20 custom-built test chambers in use around the clock. 70,000 tests and 1.3 million test hours a year emulate real-world environmental conditions and usage. The goal of all this testing is to ensure that every tape works reliably the first and every time it is loaded into a drive.
HP warrants LTO-4 Ultrium 1.6TB RW and WORM 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.
LTO-4 tape drives will support Write Once Read Many capability, meaning that data written to tape cannot be altered or tampered with. This provides an archiving solution for the retention of compliant data that meets the requirements of SEC Rule 17a - 4(f), as well as other regulatory requirements like Sarbanes-Oxley Act. WORM media will have distinctly different cartridge colour and the write protect tab will function the same as a read-write cartridge. Although data already written cannot be altered, a WORM cartridge can be appended to full capacity over several sessions.
HP’s LTO-4 tape drives and libraries have the potential to be part of wider data encryption up to FIPS 140-2 level 2. The tape drive on its own is not FIPS 140-2 level 2 but does incorporate AES 256 bit encryption (the highest level of AES) capabilities to provide greater security. HP’s implementation meets the current draft of IEEE1619.1 tape encryption standard.
A complete range of custom labeled, non-custom labeled and bar code label packs enable IT managers to choose the bar code solution that best meets their business needs. Custom labeled for full sequence selection and choice; Non-Custom labeled for fixed sequences and faster delivery; Bar Code label packs for self-service in house labeling.
