LTO Ultrium Media
Hewlett Packard Enterprise 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s
exhaustive media qualification process, HPE Ultrium data
cartridges support all HPE and non-HPE Ultrium tape devices.
Key features and benefits
•Up to 15 TB compressed capacity.
•Supports transfer speeds up to 300 MB/sec or 1.1 TB hour native with LTO-7.
•Both Advanced Metal Particle and Barium Ferrite options available for LTO-6.
•For use in all HPE and non-HPE LTO Ultrium products.
•Unique colored cartridge to assist with identification in mixed media environments.
•Very low media cost per TB – maximize storage density within the data center.
•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 to a level of specification unique to Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Many of
the test procedures required for HPE brand qualification (eg. load/unload, shoeshine, drop
testing and environmental stress testing) are not required for the LTO Ultrium logo.
•Hardware-based encryption for compliance with FIPS 140-2 level 1 security standards.
•Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers both Custom Labeled and Non-Custom Labeled data
cartridges in both standard bar code and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) versions.
– Custom Labeled offerings allow automation customers the ability to customize their label
to their specific needs. This includes the ability to define the bar code label type and to specify
an exact label sequence.

– Non-Custom Labelled media allows automation customers the ability to receive labeled
media without having to wait for a custom labeled solution. Bar code
sequences are predetermined by HPE and are guaranteed to be unique.
