HP Ultrium Media
Overview
HP Ultrium tape technology has been designed to deliver exceptional reliability and performance at the lowest cost per GB. The
Ultrium format builds on the best of existing technologies; open standards increase innovation and widen customer choice in terms
of performance, capacity, and form factor. Backed by HP's exhaustive media qualification process, HP Ultrium data cartridges
support all HP Storage and non HP Ultrium tape devices. Assuming 2:1 compression, the latest fifth Generation products minimize
interruption to network and SAN backup by being capable of protecting 1TB/hour of data and storing up to 3.0 TB on one piece of
media (almost double the capacity of HP LTO-4 Ultrium tapes).
HP's Bar Code and RFID Labeled Data Cartridges:
Cartridges
HP sells both Labeled and Unlabeled LTO Ultrium data cartridges for automation customers requiring bar code and RFID labeled
storage media.
HP's Custom Bar Code and RFID Labeled Data Cartridges allow customers to place a custom order with HP and specifically define
the exact barcode sequence printed on each label. Customers should expect a longer lead time for custom order processing. HP
Custom Labeled Data Cartridges are sold in 20 packs in the USA and Europe.
HP's Non-Custom Bar Code and RFID Labeled Data Cartridges allow customers to receive labeled data cartridges fast because no
customization process is required. These products are perfect for customers that require labeled media but do not need to define the
exact sequence printed on each label. Each HP Non-Custom Labeled Data Cartridge will have a unique, pre-defined barcode
sequence printed on each label (no duplicate codes). HP's Non-Custom Labeled Data Cartridges are sold in 20 packs and are
available worldwide.
HP's Ultrium Storage Media Kits:
Kits
HP Storage Media Kits provide customers an easy way to purchase a comprehensive portfolio of storage media products in one easy
to buy bundled solution. Each Media Kit includes twenty LTO-1 Ultrium 200GB (C7971A), LTO-2 Ultrium 400GB (C7972A), or
LTO-3 Ultrium 800 GB (C7973A) Data Cartridges, one HP Ultrium Universal Cleaning Cartridge (C7978A), twenty colored labels,
and a protective carrying case that can be used to securely store or transport data cartridges, one free copy of "The Essentials of

HP Ultrium Media
Overview
Key Features & Benefits
Up to 3.0 TB compressed capacity.
Supports transfer speeds of 140 MB/s (native), 280 MB/s (2:1) with Generation 5
For use in all HP and non-HP LTO Ultrium products.
Unique colored cartridge to assist with identification in mixed media environments.
Superior 'smart grabber' mechanism and mechanical interlock to prevent the leader pin from
being pulled inside the tape housing (a key weakness of DLT media). Sensors detect proper
connection and prevent leader loss that would ruin the tape.
Simplified tape path to reduce wear and tear.
Very low media cost per GB.
LTO cartridge memory in media to improve access time and provide enhanced media monitoring.
Durable cartridge designed to minimize wear and debris (important in automation).
Tested to extremes in HP's media laboratory, to a level of specification unique to Hewlett-Packard.
Many of the test procedures required for HP Brand qualification (e.g. load/unload, shoeshine,
drop testing and environmental stress testing) are not required for the Ultrium logo.
HP LTO-4 and LTO-5 Ultrium offers data encryption for enhanced data security.
HP's offers both labeled (Custom Labeled and Non-Custom Labeled) and non-labeled Tri Optic
and RFID data cartridges.
Custom labeled offerings allow automation customers the ability to customize their label to their
specific needs. This includes the ability to define the barcode label type and to specify an exact
label sequence. Custom labels are pre-attached to the media before shipment. Available in
Europe and the USA. Europe requires a Minimum Order Quantity of 5 units or 100 total data
cartridges (5 units X 20 cartridges).
HP Non-Custom Labeled media allows automation customers the ability to receive labeled media
without having to wait for a custom labeled solution. Barcode sequences are pre-determined by
HP and are guaranteed to be unique. LTO-1 and LTO-2 products utilize the double barcode
format whereas products from LTO-3 onwards utilize the single barcode format. HP Non-Custom
Labeled media is available worldwide.
HP LTO Ultrium RFID Storage Media provides a faster, more flexible and secure alternative to
traditional barcode identification solutions. Rewritable RFID labels enable cartridges to be
accurately tracked in real time, anywhere in the world. HP RFID labels are tested to extremes,
support worldwide radio frequencies and comply with global data security standards.
All labeled solutions are shipped in 20 packs.

HP Ultrium Media
Product Highlights
Proven Reliability
HP ensures the highest level of quality with media specifications that far exceed industry standards.
HP has 20 custom-built testing chambers that are in use 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
It is doubtful if any other media supplier carries out such exhaustive qualification of the drive and
media as they are used in the field. This is because no media supplier is exposed to support of
hardware in the field and has a vested interest in reducing media-induced hardware issues.
In 2009, HP LTO Ultrium media was used to conduct in excess of 235,000 individual tests,
equivalent to almost 1 million test hours.
HP testing includes procedures like drop testing, load/unload, environmental stress tests and
archival simulation that are not required to gain the LTO Ultrium logo.
LTO Ultrium tape technology uses a "best of breed" technology approach, taking the best features from
other tape technologies and combining them into a single new technology without the need for design
compromises to accommodate legacy compatibility requirements. Designed for the demanding
environment of large-scale libraries, Ultrium media is certified for 1 million passes or 260 full back ups
and has a 30-year archival storage life.
HP Branded Media
Specification
HP believes that its test program for HP Ultrium media is the most thorough and comprehensive in the
industry. In order to carry the HP Brand, designated cartridges must satisfy an exhaustive battery of
additional procedures that relate directly to how the product is used in real life situations when real data
and real businesses are at stake. Some of these procedures - e.g. "five corner" environmental
interchange, load/unload for automation, ageing simulation and drop testing are not found in the
standard logo test. Over 1 million test hours on media and drives per year ensures that HP Ultrium
media will always offer maximum reliability even in the most extreme conditions.
HP LTO-5 Ultrium Tape
Technology
The latest HP LTO-5 Ultrium tape drive technology uses a linear format of 1,280 tracks, writing sixteen
(16) tracks simultaneously. The data is written in a serpentine pattern; the tape reverses direction after
each set of sixteen tracks is written.
LTO Ultrium formats are open standards. This means that data written on any HP LTO Ultrium tape drive
for ProLiant servers, autoloaders, MSL, EML or ESL can be interchanged directly with Ultrium tape drives
from other vendors.
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.
Compatibility Testing
HP LTO Ultrium data cartridges are fully supported and compatible with HP LTO Ultrium tape products.
Because HP LTO Ultrium media is LTO Ultrium logo compliant, it may be used with any other non-HP
device that bears the LTO Ultrium logo.
