Overview

HP StorageWorks Ultrium Half-Height Tape Drives

 

The HP StorageWorks family of Ultrium tape drives is HP's premier line of tape backup devices. Based on LTO Ultrium format, an open standard with a well-defined six-generation roadmap, HP Ultrium tape drives offer customers the best choice for investment protection relative to their backup and archival requirements. HP pioneered the half-height Ultrium drive, as the only manufacturer offering both full-height and half-height models of the first-generation Ultrium drives. While HP Ultrium half-height drives deliver the same capacity and the same level of reliability as our full-height Ultrium drives, they trade off lower performance for a much lower price, making them ideal for those who need the capacity and reliability of a superdrive without paying for the blazing speed of a full-height LTO drive. Three generations of half-height drives are available from HP, offering a wide portfolio to meet the backup requirements for entry to midrange servers.

With ultimate reliability and ease of use in mind, even at a 100% duty cycle, HP's rugged design builds on superior LTO technology and adds advanced features to create a new level of data protection. HP Ultrium tape drives employ dynamic data rate matching to adjust to the speed of the host, reducing wear and tear on both drive and media and increasing performance, even on slower hosts. HP's ultra-durable soft-load feature automatically positions the data cartridge, and the highly reliable HP leader-capture mechanism virtually eliminates lost leaders, increasing the success of your backup and restore operations. Support for HP One-Button Disaster Recovery provides the easiest way to restore data in the event of a disaster. If data is critical to your business, protect it with an HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drive.

What's New
  • The new HP Ultrium 920 SAS Tape Drive provides a 3Gb/sec SAS interface allowing direct connect to SAS-based ProLiant servers.

HP StorageWorks Ultrium 232
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 232 tape drive is entry into the LTO portfolio. This affordable superdrive delivers enterprise-class capacity, performance, and reliability at a midrange price. With a compressed capacity of 200 GB per data cartridge and a compressed data transfer rate of 115 GB per hour, this LTO-1 drive is read- and write-compatible with all first-generation Ultrium drives and media, and its media can be read by any LTO-1, -2, or -3 drive from any manufacturer.

HP StorageWorks Ultrium 448
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 448 tape drive is HP's second generation of half-height LTO tape drive technology. Offering a choice of both SCSI and SAS models, this high capacity, low cost tape drive delivers a compressed storage capacity of 400 GB per data cartridge and a compressed data transfer rate of 172 GB per hour, double the capacity and one and a half times the performance of the Ultrium 232 tape drive. The Ultrium 448 tape drive is fully read and write compatible with all first- and second-generation Ultrium drives and media. These features, combined with low pricing, make the Ultrium 448 the ideal direct-attach and network backup solution for entry-level and midrange servers where capacity and low cost of ownership are critical. New SAS-based models allow for direct connect to SAS-based ProLiant servers via embedded SAS controller or SAS HBA.

HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 tape drive is HP's third generation of half-height LTO tape drive technology. As the highest capacity, fastest performance half-height drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 920 delivers a compressed storage capacity of 800 GB per data cartridge and a compressed data transfer rate of 432 GB per hour, two and a half times faster than the previous generation Ultrium 448 tape drive. Available in both SCSI and SAS models, the Ultrium 920 is ideal for midrange and departmental servers. The Ultrium 920 Tape Drive is fully read and write compatible with all second-generation Ultrium drives and media and offers further investment protection through its backward-read compatibility with first-generation Ultrium media. For IT organizations with stringent, long-term data retention requirements, the Ultrium 920's WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) data protection feature offers a simple and secure method for archiving records as part of a compliance solution to meet the toughest of industry regulations.

Product Highlights

LTO Ultrium Technology
Linear Tape-Open technology was developed by three leaders in the storage industry - HP, IBM, and Quantum - who brought together their combined expertise in tape technology to develop an entirely new format based on the best of existing technologies. Because LTO Ultrium technology was a new format, it required no cumbersome support of legacy formats, so it could be designed without compromising on reliability or performance. The LTO Program, has developed a well-defined six-generation roadmap, which has been executed right on schedule, with the first generation of Ultrium drives and media released in 2000, the second generation in 2002, and the third generation in 2004.
Ultrium 1 tape drive technology uses a linear format of 384 tracks, writing eight tracks simultaneously. Ultrium 2 tape drive technology uses a linear format of 512 tracks, writing eight tracks simultaneously. Ultrium 3 tape drive technology features a breakthrough in recording technology by writing sixteen tracks simultaneously on a linear format of 704 tracks. The data is written in a serpentine pattern; the tape reverses direction after each set of eight tracks is written. This provides higher density recording, enabling customers to lower costs and increase efficiency by storing more data on a single tape in an industry standard format.

The LTO standard for backward compatibility is to write back one generation and read back two generations; therefore:

  • First-generation Ultrium drives, such as HP Ultrium 232, read and write LTO 1 media
  • Second-generation Ultrium drives, such as HP Ultrium 460 and Ultrium 448, read and write LTO 1 and LTO 2 media.
  • Third-generation Ultrium drives, such as the Ultrium 960 and Ultrium 920, read and write LTO 2 and LTO 3 media and also read LTO 1 media.
As part of the LTO open standard, all HP tape drives and media offer the same standards of compatibility with tape drives and media manufactured by other LTO vendors.
LTO data compression (LTO-DC) is an enhanced version of Advanced Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) hardware compression. Compression is automatically turned off if the compressed data would cause an overall expansion in data size, hence optimizing the available capacity on the media. This system is used in Ultrium generation 1, 2, and 3 products.
The decision about what next technology you should buy into should be based on your future, not your past, investment. Choose the Ultrium format when you need the following advantages:
 
  • Maximum reliability, capacity and performance
     
  • Compatibility with a broad range of operating systems and servers (e.g., a mixed system environment)
     
  • A legacy-free technology that uses the best attributes from a wide range of tape technologies without any compromises for backward compatibility requirements
     
  • A solid roadmap for future generations of the technology
     
  • An open format available from multiple vendors
     
  • Lowest media cost of any 'superdrive' tape technology
