HP StorageWorks Tape Drives
Overview
HP StorageWorks DAT drives are based on the Digital Data Storage (DDS) format. In fact, DAT is the most successful tape backup
technology of all time with more than 17 million DAT drives shipped since its introduction in 1989, and with a current world-wide
installed base of over 6 million drives. A number of vendors manufacture DDS format DAT drives, but HP has long been the market
leader in DAT technology.
This remarkable tape technology continues to flourish because of its ability to meet the needs of the Small and Medium Business
(SMB) market for reliable, cost-effective backup better than any other technology available.
The HP StorageWorks family of DAT drives is the first choice for data protection for many small and medium businesses with low-end
and mid-range servers and workstations. HP StorageWorks DAT drives are also frequently used for operating system backup and
software loading on mission-critical servers in many large enterprises.
HP StorageWorks DAT drives are available with a range of capacities (from 40GB to 160GB) and a choice of interfaces. Customers
can benefit from native USB 2.0 for plug-and-play installation: from out of the box to backup in less than 60 seconds. SCSI
interfaces are also available for servers requiring SCSI connectivity. SAS interfaces will also be available later in the year for the very
latest server connectivity.
Each member of the HP StorageWorks DAT family offers a complete backup solution including HP's unique One-Button-DisasterRecovery (OBDR) feature providing customers with the ability to restore their systems quickly and effortlessly with the touch of a
single button. HP's unique Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) utilities provide HP StorageWorks DAT customers with a comprehensive
suite of tape drive management utilities and HP's extensive testing program ensures that customers benefit from the broadest
connectivity and compatibility with HP and third-party servers, operating systems and software in the industry.
Also includes HP StorageWorks Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software and its Bare Metal Disaster Recovery option,
providing a backup application to protect a single Windows, Linux or NetWare server.

Product Highlights
DDS Technology
Within the tape market there is a wide range of tape technologies, the question for SMB customers is
which one to choose. The answer is clear - DDS/DAT continues to be the unit volume leader in the tape
drive market for small and medium businesses with a current installed base of over 6 million and over
17 million DAT drives shipped since its introduction in 1989. This remarkable tape technology continues
to flourish because it meets the needs of the SMB market for cost-effective, reliable backup better than
any other technology available. Of the 1.5 million backup tape drives shipped in 2005, IDC estimates
that approximately 43% were DAT drives.
Unlike AIT, VXA, ADR, SLR, DLT and SDLT, DDS/DAT is based on an open standard format for data
interchange. The influential DAT manufacturers group presides over this open standard with verification
processes that ensure compliance. With multiple manufacturers developing and shipping DDS/DAT
products, customers benefit from increased competition, which leads to better prices, faster development
and more choice.
DDS format for DAT is a helical scan format where data is written diagonally across the width of the
tape. The advantage is that, by allowing subsequent tracks to have different writing angles and to
overlap, a much greater capacity can be achieved for a given length of tape because no guard bands
are necessary. The data format also allows for fast location of tracks and data. To achieve this, the
rotating drum is tilted at a slight angle (6°) from the vertical. The drum has four heads (two write heads
and two read heads), located at 90° intervals. For each rotation of the drum, two tracks are written. The
read heads verify the data that has been written (recorded) and the drive rewrites if necessary. The open
format ensures interchangeability between different DDS format drives.
HP has been involved in the design and development of DAT drives since the beginning and applies
these many years of experience to its current line of DAT products. Not only does an investment in DAT
technology provide the security of a format with a history of outstanding reliability, the legacy of
backward compatibility also provides the potential for future expansion without compromising your
investment in the technology.
The target market for DAT continues to be direct-attach backup. In small and medium sized businesses
cost of ownership, ease of use and a proven history (i.e. low risk) are paramount. DAT technology
provides the capacity and performance needed in a tape backup solution for workstations and entrylevel servers.
Specific Note on DAT 160
The DAT 160 drive employs the same technology as previous DAT products, and uses DAT 160 wide
media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains the 2 generation backward
compatibility promise and can still read and write data to DAT 72 and DAT 40 (DDS-4) cartridges. It
does this by recognizing the different tapes (wider DAT 160 and the narrower DAT 72/DDS-4).

DAT 72 also reads and writes DDS-4 and DDS-3
DAT 40 also reads and writes DDS-3 and DDS-2

Proven Reliability
HP DAT drives have proven to be exceptionally reliable. The drives have demonstrated exceptional
performance with customers over many years and across different generations and this has under pinned
their popularity.
The drives are designed with reliability in mind and with the security of customer's data as a priority.
Hardware reliability is typically measured as MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) associated with duty
cycles which suggests the amount the drive is typically used e.g. 100% duty cycle means the drive is used
for 24 hours per day. As a result of field data, the specification for HP DDS products is stated as
125,000 hours at 100% duty cycle, or 1 million hours at a more typical 12% duty cycle (drive used on
average for 3 hours per day).
Unlike other manufactures DAT drives, this specification is not generated in the laboratory with limited
numbers of prototype drives and assumptions on customer use; it is generated from real customer data
for the products concerned.
Automated Head
Cleaning/Intelligent
cleaning
HP DDS drives benefit from an automatic head cleaning "sweeper" that can be used during the write or
read recovery procedure to dislodge debris from the tape path and recording heads and drive. This
feature reduces the need to use a DDS cleaning cartridge for manual cleaning.
Intelligent cleaning determines the cleaning provided by a cleaning cartridge when loaded by monitoring
the drive performance when in use. If the drive is performing well, a routine maintenance clean is
performed. If the drive has degraded performance the cleaning is automatically made more robust to
recover the drive to optimum performance.
Interfaces
HP DAT drives are currently available with a choice of interfaces: the standard SCSI interface where
legacy SCSI connectivity is required and USB 2.0 interface for universal plug and play connectivity. In the
near future, as SAS interface for the DAT 160 is planned.
The USB (Universal Systems Bus) interface was conceived out of a need to simplify computer peripheral
device connection. It has been so successful that the majority of computer systems and servers shipped
today offer multiple native USB 2.0 ports.
HP is the first company to develop a native USB DDS/DAT tape drive. Where other "USB tape drives" rely
on a USB converter, HP's USB interface is fully integrated with the drive and uses the SCSI command set
within the USB payload. The benefit of this implementation is that it gives the drive full SCSI functionality
and the flexibility of USB without the additional cost of a converter.
By offering native USB 2.0 DAT drives, HP aims to provide customers with a number of benefits:
Greater usability
Plug-and-play connectivity- the system automatically detects and configures the tape drive.
The DAT drive is installed and ready to backup in less than 60 seconds.
Microsoft fully supports USB devices natively in their operating systems providing robust,
secure configuration and installation wizards.
Cables are easily identifiable, easy to attach without the need for thumb-screw and robust
enough to ensure reliable retention.
Resource abundance
Native USB ports are universally available in systems and servers
Multiple ports ensure that port resources are widely available, reducing the conflict between
devices over scarce connectors.
Port expansion is easy, USB hubs can be installed to add additional ports supporting up to
127 devices on a system
Low cost, reliable connectivity

Product Highlights
By providing native USB DDS/DAT drives there is no need for customers to purchase
additional host-bus adapters
HP's USB 2.0 implementation benefits from the built-in reliability and failure recovery
inherent in the underlying SCSI protocol
USB 2.0 has multiple levels of physical error detection and recovery which ensure reliability
on a par with SCSI and Fibre-channel interfaces.
USB 2.0 compliance certification provides thorough, ongoing reliability and quality control.
A well implemented USB network should use only USB 2.0 compliant components,
including USB 2.0 certified cables.
Sustainable performance
In HP tests it has been shown that USB 2.0 can sustain the performance of an HP DDS/DAT
drive at around 30MB/sec, a bandwidth that would sustain the HP DAT 72 drive operating
with a compression ratio of 9:1!
USB 2.0 performance provides sufficient bandwidth to support all future generations of
DDS/DAT drives specified on the DAT Manufacturers Group Roadmap
Compression
DDS uses built-in hardware compression using the 'DCLZ' data compression algorithm. Data
compression is host-selectable with the default that compression is turned on. Typical data compression
is 2:1, but actual compression depends on the type of data being compressed and can be more or less
than 2:1.
SCSI Offline Hot-Swap
Technology
NOTE: this feature is available for SCSI products. USB variants of HP DAT drives already benefit from
hot-plug capability through the USB 2.0 interface.
The HP StorageWorks DAT SCSI tape drives are available as offline hot-swap models to increase your
uptime. With these models, you never have to take down your system to replace a failed or nonresponding tape device.
The HP StorageWorks Tape Array 5300 supports "offline hot-swap" (sometimes referred to as "warmswap") array modules, including DAT drives. This means the drives can be removed and replaced with
the power on and the SCSI cables attached to the server. Because the array's SCSI buses are not
buffered, however, drive replacement should only take place while the SCSI bus is quiescent (no SCSI
activity from the tape drive or any other device on the same bus).
With the HP StorageWorks DAT or array modules, the server does not need to be taken offline to install
the tape drive. Simply insert the tape drive into the server's Tape Array 5300's drive bay and install or
configure the backup software.

The drive has detected that
cleaning is required tot maintain
good performance.
Wait for the current operation to
finish and clean the drive with an
appropriate cleaning media,
ensuring it has not expired.
Continue to use the drive as
before. If the signal repeats,
consider changing the data media
for new media when convenient.

of tape pulling or weekly) can
prevent this signal being shown.
HP DAT drives perform a comprehensive
self-test during power-up. If a hard error
causes the self-test to fail, the clean light
changes to steady amber. Run HP Library
& Tape Tools to help diagnose the
problem.
The tape drive is in disaster recovery
mode, restoring the operating system.

drive is cleaned with appropriate
media and the data media
changed.
If required, the data from the
media flagged as suspect should
be transferred to a new media
cartridge.

The is an unusual state which is
only triggered when there have
been issues with multiple data
media and the drive has been
cleaned regularly.
If this occurs, please use Library
and Tape Tools to perform further
diagnosis or contact HP support
for further advice.
On steady HP DAT drives perform a comprehensive
self-test during power-up. If a hard error
causes the self-test to fail, the clean light
