HP StorageWorks Ultrium Half-Height Tape Drives
Product Highlights
LTO Ultrium TechnologyLinear 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.
Ultrium LTO-1 and LTO-2 tape drive technologies from HP use a linear format of 384 tracks and 512
tracks (respectively), writing eight tracks simultaneously. Ultrium LTO-3 and LTO-4 tape drive features a
breakthrough in recording technology by writing sixteen tracks simultaneously on a linear format of 704
tracks and 896 tracks (respectively). 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 (HP Ultrium 230, HP Ultrium 232) read and write LTO-1 media
Second-generation Ultrium drives (HP Ultrium 460, HP Ultrium 448) read and write LTO-1 and
LTO-2 media.
Third-generation Ultrium drives (HP Ultrium 920, Ultrium 960) read and write LTO-2 and LTO-3
media and also read LTO-1 media.
Fourth-generation Ultrium drives (Ultrium 1760, Ultrium 1840) read and write LTO-3 and LTO-4
media and also read LTO-2 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

Product Highlights
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with HP's 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 two big advantages:
It minimizes rewinding and repositioning of the tape, reducing physical wear on drive and media,
thus increasing reliability.
It optimizes backup performance, and maximizes overall efficiency allowing the drive to respond
immediately to any speed changes from the host.
It minimizes the power requirements for the drive by reducing the number of repositions needed.
Software in the Box
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives include HP Data Protector Express Single Server Edition
Software. This easy to use backup application, based on Data Protector Express, robustly protects a
single Windows, Linux or NetWare server. Also included is the Data Protector Express Bare Metal
Disaster Recovery (BMDR) option which provides automated system recovery of the server following a
major hardware or software failure. The fastest method to recovery the server is to use the Data Protector
Express BMDR option and the One-Button Disaster Recovery feature of the HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape
drives. For more information about Data Protector Express Single Server Edition please visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress/sse.
As well as getting the Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software as part of the HP
StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives solution, purchasers can easily and economically upgrade to the classleading Data Protector Express backup/recovery software. This is a special part number, only available
for registered users of Data Protector Express Single Server Edition, that gives a significant discount off the
regular price of Data Protector Express, to recognize the value of the in-box software. For more
information about upgrading Data Protector Express Single Server Edition to Data Protector Express visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress/sse/upgrade.
If the HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drive is for a large environment that requires UNIX support and/or
enterprise class application and feature support then HP Data Protector software is the recommended
backup/recovery software. For more information and evaluation software please visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotector.
HP One-Button Disaster HP StorageWorks One-Button Disaster Recovery is an exclusive feature of HP tape drives that provides
Recovery (OBDR)
fast and simple disaster recovery on HP ProLiant servers. OBDR is a firmware-driven utility that can restore
a server's operating system, software applications, and data using a single tape cartridge. Depending on
the size of the data set, OBDR can provide system recovery in less than one hour, reducing the recovery
window by more than 50 percent and minimizing the risks and costs associated with downtime. There's
no longer a need to search for software disks and manuals or make a new set of disaster recovery disks
each time the network configuration is altered or a peripheral is added. The sheer simplicity of OBDR
means less human error. Backup and disaster recovery preparation, previously two separate tasks, now
become one process. For more information about OBDR, visit the HP website at:
http://www.hp.com/go/obdr.
For a current list of servers, workstations, and software that support OBDR, check the tape backup
compatibility pages on the HP website at: http://www.hp.com/go/connect.

Compatibility
HP's extensive compatibility testing program assures that your HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drive works with leading servers,
operating systems, and backup applications - and not just those sold by HP. HP Ultrium tape drives work seamlessly on many
platforms, making them especially suitable if you have a mixed system environment. For the latest list of servers, workstations,
operating systems, and backup software that support HP Ultrium tape drives, check the tape backup compatibility pages on our Web
site at: http://www.hp.com/go/connect.
SAS Installation
HP StorageWorks SAS tape drives are available as internal and external models. Both models are
supplied with a special split cable that allows you to connect to an internal port (if available) on the
embedded SAS controller inside the server. While connection via the split cable provides the most costeffective way of connecting the tape drive to an HP ProLiant server, this will require a clear understanding
of your server's current SAS configuration before installing.
Some server models will allow direct connect to a spare SAS connector on the native SAS controller.
Other servers which do not have a spare connector, might require you to reconfigure hard disk drive
bays and in a few instances, you may also lose the use of one of the hard disk drive bays and will need
to rebuild your RAID configuration. In these configurations the simple, recommended solution is
connecting to an option SAS host bus adapter and optional SAS cable.
For the most up-to-date information about recommended SAS HBAs and supported cabling configurations
