HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader
Product Highlights
Manageability
The 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader allows web-based remote manageability; the unit can be monitored and
managed from across the room or across the globe. Functions included in the management tool include:
Status information on the drive and system
System configuration operations and reporting
System error and status logs
Library and drive firmware upload capabilities
Diagnostic tests and information
Cartridge movement for maintenance and management purposes
Cleaning cartridge support
Security and access control
SNMP support for IP communications
Proven Reliability
With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader provides necessary
high reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HP Ultrium
products feature Data Rate Matching (DRM). This allows the tape drive to dynamically and continuously
adjust the speed of the drive, from 7 MB/s to 140 MB/s, to match the speed of the host or network. This
increases performance, reduces mechanical wear on the tape drive and extends tape life.
Encryption
The HP Secure Advantage portfolio is expanding to include a new offering intended for data protection
in small to medium businesses. The HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit provides a libraryenabled encryption solution that greatly enhances data privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of your
critical business data while supporting compliance requirements. While there are a wide range of
encryption solutions available, the HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit is intended to be an
easy and affordable library-enabled solution for small businesses.
Protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data:
The encryption kit includes two USB key server tokens, product documentation, and firmware support.
One encryption kit is needed per library or autoloader and it must be physically accessible so that the
USB token can be inserted into the automation device. One of the two tokens will plug into the USB port
in the autoloader or library and will generate and maintain encryption keys for the LTO-5 and LTO-4
drives/libraries. The USB key server token uses a hardware random number generator, a cryptographic
module running on FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated hardware, password authentication, and digital
envelopes for strong encryption keys and security operations. The second USB token is intended to
provide a backup to the first. The keys are transferred securely token-to-token for backup or export, with
no exposure to insecure PCs, servers, or networks. The encryption kit provides a self-contained solution
for MSL libraries with no additional software, PCs, or servers required or involved.
Protect IT resources and meet compliance requirements:
With the HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit, users can enable or disable encryption,
configure the USB key server tokens, restore encrypted data, as well as a variety of other tasks. In
addition, the LTO-5 and LTO-4 tape drives use the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with the longest
and most secure keys -- 256 bits. AES-256 encryption is implemented using the Galois Counter Mode
(GCM). This method adds Message Authentication Codes to ensure the integrity as well as privacy of the
backup data stored on tape. The HP LTO-5 and LTO-4 Ultrium Tape Drives are designed to be
compliant with the emerging standard for tape media security (IEEE 1619.1).

Serviceability
Modular in construction, the 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader has easily replaceable components minimizing
the Mean-Time-to-Repair on the unit. Replaceable components include the tape drive, the magazines,
and the chassis (includes robot, power supply, and controller board). HP StorageWorks Library and Tape
Tools (L&TT) provides easy access to the 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader error log, generates support tickets,
and enables firmware downloads. L&TT can be downloaded for free at:
http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools
LTO Ultrium Technology HP StorageWorks LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium Tape Drives use best of breed technology. By taking
the best features from other tape technologies and combining them into a single new technology,
Ultrium tape drives are in a league of their own. Inclusion of innovative features such as Adaptive Tape
Speed (ATS) ensure that Ultrium drives can meet the performance and reliability demands of a library
environment. LTO technology is an open industry standard format; thus data written on HP
StorageWorks Ultrium Tape Drives can be interchanged directly with Ultrium Tape Drives from other
vendors.
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with the HP exclusive variable Adaptive
Tape Speed technology, to allow the tape drive to match its transfer rate to the host speed dynamically
and continuously across the wide range of transfer rates. This feature ensures that the tape drive
continues to stream data regardless of the environment, and brings three big advantages:
It optimizes performance and maximizes overall efficiency, allowing the drive to respond
immediately to any speed changes from the host.
It minimizes rewinding and repositioning of the tape, significantly reducing physical wear and
increasing reliability.
It minimizes the power requirements for the drive by reducing the number of repositions needed.

Critical to the success of data retention policies in highly regulated environments is the ability to store
and manage data in an unalterable state. Following stringent guidelines set forth by regulatory agencies
such as the SEC and HIPPA, IT organizations must now integrate new solutions and policies that can
verify the integrity of stored data for periods that can extend well beyond seven years.
The LTO-5, LTO-4, and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data in a nonrewriteable format that meets the most stringent regulatory guidelines. Using a combination of integrated
fail-safe features in the drive firmware, cartridge memory, and tape formatting, the LTO-5, LTO-4, and
LTO-3 Ultrium can archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30 years in a secure, untampered
state. Since all LTO-5, LTO-4, and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives include support for both rewritable and
WORM media, IT organizations can now easily integrate a secure, long-term archiving solution into their
current data protection strategy. As compared to other technologies that feature support for WORM
storage, the LTO-5, LTO-4 and LTO-3 Ultrium tape drives offer the advantages of:
A single drive to support all backup and archiving needs
Two distinctive tape cartridges to easily distinguish and manage both rewriteable and WORM data
cartridges
A specially designed WORM data cartridge with multiple integrated fail-safe features to prevent
accidental or intentional overwriting of data
