Hewlett Packard Enterprises 30TB LTO-8 Ultrium RW Data Cartridge

The HPE LTO-8 Ultrium 30TB RW Data Cartridge provides reliable, low cost and scalable protection to guard your data against the threat of cyber attacks and ransomware, as well as meeting your demands for reliability when restoring data. They enable businesses to comply with the recommendations of law enforcement agencies around the world to maintain offline copies of their data.

Ergonomics

Secure AES-256 encryption provides even higher levels of data security and compliance with the most stringent industry regulations to prevent unauthorized data access. The HPE StoreOpen and Linear Tape File System make using tape as easy, flexible, portable, and intuitive as using other removable and shareable media, such as a USB drive. Also, because LTO cartridges at rest require minimal additional power and cooling, they offer a greener, more sustainable long-term archival solution for your data.

Creates an Air Gap to Keep Data Out of the Reach of Cybercriminals

Agencies such as the US FBI recommend keeping data offline. This is because tapes that are stored offline are disconnected from the network and are out of reach of sophisticated criminals who use digital networks to strike at companies to encrypt both their primary data and their backups. The Built-in AES 256-bit encryption (LTO-5 to LTO-9) allows you to provide additional security for data stored on tape. With LTO encryption (strengthened by the option to use WORM cartridges), even if tapes were to fall into the wrong hands, your data would be protected from unauthorized access. The HPE LTO Ultrium cartridge memory chip delivers faster access time and enhanced media monitoring.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership for Long-term Archiving

According to a white paper from ESG, ‘The Economic Benefits of HPE StoreEver as Active Archival Storage’, published in August 2020, LTO tape technology is over 80% less expensive across 10 years, than either all-disk or all-cloud solutions for a 1 PB archive growing at 10% per annum. Standardizing on HPE LTO Ultrium delivers the capacity to meet shrinking backup windows, industry-standard, AES 256-bit encryption (IEEE1619.1), and interchangeable read-write (RW) or WORM media, without extra space or IT resource overhead. The open standard technology helps ensure compatibility across product generations and gives you more choice. HPE LTO Ultrium cartridges are available as custom labeled or non-custom labeled. The HPE 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.

Highest Capacity and Performance

HPE LTO-9 Ultrium data cartridges can write or read data at a blistering 3.6 TB/hour, storing, encrypting, and protecting up to 45 TB* on a single cartridge, making it ideal for large-scale, 24x7, mission-critical IT environments (capacity assumes 2.5:1 compression). A 35% increase in the number of tracks and a 3% increase in bit density has permitted a capacity increase from 30 TB for LTO-8 to 45 TB for LTO-9. From 2,176 tracks for LTO-6 to 8,960 tracks for 9th generation HPE LTO-9 Ultrium 45 TB cartridges (assuming 2.5:1 compression) – an improvement of 311%

Ultra-Reliable Storage Medium

Tape is more reliable than Enterprise SATA disk, with a bit error rate (BER) of 1x10 to the power of 19 for LTO-8 versus 1x10 to the power of 15 for enterprise SATA HDD. That’s a difference in reliability of four orders of magnitude–e.g. tape is 10,000 times more reliable than Enterprise SATA HDD. Estimated data loss over 10 years for 1 Exabyte archive is 1.1 Petabytes for HDD compared to only 7.4 Terabytes for tape. The HPE brand qualification test procedures (load/unload, shoeshine, drop testing, and environmental stress testing) go far beyond what is required for the HPE LTO Ultrium. This ensures the utmost reliability for restoring your data. The 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, tear, and build-up of debris–crucial in automation.
