TAPE DRIVE
LTO-3 HH
High Performance Data Protection
in a simple and affordable half
height form factor
Quantum’s LTO-3 Half-Height tape drive provides excellent performance
while offering up to 400GB of native capacity. Its simple half-height
form factor and SCSI or SAS interface option allow easy installation and
integration into your datacenter. The LTO-3 HH tape drive is backward
read and write compatible with LTO-2 media and backward read
compatible with LTO-1 media.
Quantum’s FastSense™ feature maximizes the transfer rates of the LTO-3
HH tape drives by using a multiple speed sensor that matches the speed
at which the drive is streaming data to optimize the backup cycle. This
helps prevent the “back-hitching” that slows down many tape drives
if the computer system cannot transfer data fast enough. In addition,
Quantum adds features like SmartVerify™ to concurrently verify all data
written to the tape, virtually eliminating the time consuming verify
pass during backup operations. And, an advanced cooling design helps
provide extended tape life.
The LTO-3 HH is available in a server-installable internal, convenient
tabletop or space-efficient rackmount configuration. Quantum “Backup
Ready” certified solutions allow you to go from box-to-backup in
minutes with the highly reliable Quantum LTO-3 HH tape drive, worldclass Backup Exec™ QuickStart software and durable Quantum media.
