HP LTO Ultrium Tape Drives
Product Highlights
LTO Ultrium Technology Linear 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, a consortium of the three technology provider companies,
has developed a well-defined six-generation roadmap.
Ultrium 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, LTO-4 and the new LTO-5 tape drive
features a breakthrough in recording technology by writing sixteen tracks simultaneously on a linear
format of 704 tracks, 896 tracks and 1280 tracks (respectively). The data is written in a serpentine
pattern; the tape reverses direction after each set of 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 LTO Ultrium drives (HP Ultrium 230, HP Ultrium 232) read and write LTO 1
media
Second-generation LTO Ultrium drives (HP Ultrium 460, HP Ultrium 448) read and write LTO 1
and LTO 2 media.
Third-generation LTO Ultrium drives (HP Ultrium 920, Ultrium 960) read and write LTO 2 and
LTO 3 media and also read LTO 1 media.
Fourth-generation LTO Ultrium drives (Ultrium 1840, Ultrium 1760) read and write LTO 3 and
LTO 4 media and also read LTO 2 media.
Fifth-generation LTO Ultrium drives (Ultrium 3280, Ultrium 3000) read and write LTO 4 and LTO
5 media and also read LTO 3 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. Data
compression is also turned off if data is found to be uncompressible; thus, allowing for better data scans.
The system is used in all Ultrium tape drives.
The decision about which tape technology you should buy next 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

TapeAssure
HP TapeAssure makes managing, optimizing and archiving on the HP LTO Ultrium tape drives easier.
This tool provides additional management and monitoring capabilities including:
Life and health information for media and drives
Information on media and drive utilization and operational performance
Notifications of drive and media characteristics that fall below HP recommended standards
TapeAssure health reports and alerts give you peace of mind knowing the condition of the drives, the
tapes and the data on each tape. TapeAssure monitors every backup to ensure the highest standards of
reliability, sends alerts when these standards are not met, and ensures that you can maintain the drives
and tapes used in an archive environment to have the highest integrity.
TapeAssure builds a database of drive and tape history information that you can export as .CSV
(comma-separated-value) files and import into Excel or other tools to create pivot-charts, pie charts and
bar charts for graphical presentation or further analysis. This data can be automatically exported on a
schedule or on demand and written to a local or network drive where analysis scripts can also be run.
Instructions and downloads of HP TapeAssure are available at:
http://www.hp.com/go/TapeAssure
Linear Tape File System
(LTFS)
HP LTFS makes tape self-describing, file-based, and easy-to-use, it also provides users with the ability to
use standard file operations on tape media for accessing, managing and sharing files with an interface
that behaves just like a hard disk. In addition, LTFS provides the ability to share data across platforms, as
you would with a USB drive or memory stick. Simply load a tape into the drive, mount it into the file
system, and it becomes visible as a disk.

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 optimizes backup performance, regardless of the speed of the host or the network
It minimizes rewinding and repositioning of the tape, reducing wear and increasing reliability
WORM (Write-Once,
Read-Many) Drive and
Media Support
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.
LTO-3, 4 and 5 tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data in a non-rewriteable 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, LTO Ultrium drives can archive large amounts of
data for periods of up to 30 years in a secure, untampered state. Since all LTO-3, 4 and 5 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, LTO-3, 4 and 5 offers 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
High-capacity, low-cost HP WORM media that can store 800GB (LTO-3), 1.6TB (LTO-4) or 3TB
(LTO-5) of data on a single data cartridge
Support from many backup and archiving software vendors, providing the most comprehensive
and mainstream support in the industry
The LTO open standard that offers greater choice and compatibility across all third-generation
Ultrium products
NOTE: While all HP LTO-3, 4 and 5 tape drives support LTO Ultrium WORM media, some thirdgeneration LTO Ultrium tape drives from other manufacturers may not include read and write support for
LTO Ultrium WORM media. For non-HP LTO-3 and LTO-4 tape drives, please check the manufacturers'
specifications to ensure this support is provided if you are using your WORM media. If WORM support is
not provided, the drive will eject the WORM tape cartridge immediately upon insertion into to the tape
drive.

Compatibility
SAS Installation
HP SAS tape drives are available as internal and external models. Both models are supplied with SAS
cables that allows you to connect to an internal port (if available) on the embedded SAS controller inside
the server.
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 with your make and model of server, always refer to: http://www.hp.com/storage/SPOCK
Cables and Termination
All cables required for a typical internal and external connection to HP servers are provided with your
tape drive. For non-HP servers, please consult your manufacturers' server specifications to determine if
the cable provided with your LTO Ultrium tape drive is appropriate for use with that server.
No terminator is required for SCSI internal models (assumes use of terminated cable). The SCSI external
model features "auto-termination" - no terminator is required.
SAS-based Ultrium models ship with SAS cable which allows direct attach from embedded SAS
controller.
NOTE: Visit: http://www.hp.com/storage/SPOCK for the latest compatibility information.
