HP StorageWorks DAT 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 9 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 24 GB to 72 GB) 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.
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. The solutions also include HP StorageWorks Data Protector Express Single Server Edition backup/recovery software

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
15 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 3.5 million backup tape drives shipped in 2003, Gartner
Dataquest estimates that approximately 50% 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
straightness with which the track is written to tape is referred to as the linearity of the track and is critical
in ensuring the data is always recoverable.
HP has been involved in the design and development of DDS drives since the beginning and applies
these many years of experience to its current line of DDS products. Not only does an investment in DDS
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 DDS/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. DDS
technology provides the capacity and performance needed in a tape backup solution for workstations
and entry-level servers.

Proven Reliability
HP DDS drives have proven to be exceptionally reliable backup devices. Hardware reliability is typically
measured by MTBF (mean time between failures) quoted in a number of hours at a particular duty cycle.
Duty cycle is a measure of average usage per day. For example, a 12% duty cycle means the device is
used an average of 3 hours per day, whereas a 100% duty cycle means that it is used 24 hours per day.
A drive's predicted MTBF is calculated from a series of tests done on a large population of drives both
before and after product launch.
HP's ongoing reliability improvements have recently resulted in an increase in reliability specifications for
HP DAT drives based on real field data. By completing an analysis of actual MTBF using the years of
data captured about HP DAT products, HP discovered that our DDS-4 and DAT 72 tape drives deliver
even better reliability than was initially predicted and documented in our specifications.
The DAT QuickSpecs have now been revised to reflect the new figures:
The old specifications were:
MTBF: 400,000 hours at a 12% duty cycle
Unrecoverable error rate: 1 bit in 10-15
The new specifications are:
MTBF: 125,000 hours at a 100% duty cycle or 1 million hours at a 12% duty cycle
Unrecoverable error rate: 1 bit in 10-17
DAT's MTBF is now typically expressed with a 100% duty cycle to make it simpler to compare to other
tape formats; for example, HP's enterprise-level LTO Ultrium drives have an MTBF of 250,000 hours at a
100% duty cycle. In practice, however, unlike Ultrium drives (used 24x7 as the most popular choice for
large tape libraries), few DAT drives would ever be used 24 hours a day. Using a 12% duty cycle that we
believe is more typical for a DAT drive, the figure becomes an impressive 1 million hours at a 12% duty
cycle.
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.

USB 2.0 Interface
HP DAT drives are available with a choice of interfaces: the standard SCSI interface where SCSI
connectivity is required and the newly introduced USB 2.0 interface.
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
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 Hot-Plug and
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 drives come in two variants that increase your uptime: hot-plug and
offline hot-swap. With these configurations, you never have to take down your system to replace a failed
or non-responding tape device.
Hot-plug tape drives are supported on all HP ProLiant and AlphaServers that have the universal drive
bay built in to the server. These drives can be inserted or removed without disassembling the server, thus
enabling the system to be operational 24x7. This configuration also provides the ability to mix tape
drives and 1" hot-plug hard drives on the same SCSI bus without slowing down the performance of the
system (supported on the HP Smart Array 5300 controller family and integrated Smart Array controller
and selected HP AlphaServer host bus adapters).
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). This is similar to HP hot-plug DAT
drives, though the hot-plug drives are not affected by other devices on the bus.
With the HP StorageWorks DAT hot-plug tape drives 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 hot-plug bay or the
Tape Array 5300's drive bay and install or configure the backup software.
Rack-Mount Tape
Options
HP DAT SCSI drives are supported on the HP StorageWorks 1U and 3U Rack-Mount Kits and the HP
StorageWorks Tape Array 5300. The 3U Rack-Mount Kit and the Tape Array 5300 allow up to four
internal DAT drives to be installed in 3U of rack space, while the 1U Rack-Mount Kit holds two DAT
drives in 1U of space. Both the 1U and 3U rack-mount kits use standard internal DAT SCSI drives for a
low-cost solution, while the Tape Array 5300 uses DAT array modules that provide offline hot-swap
capabilities and redundant components for high-availability environments.
Either of these rack enclosures can be configured with separate SCSI buses (channels) for each drive or
two or more drives per bus using the optional cable kits.

Both flashing slowly

Wait for the current operation to
finish, then insert a different tape
and repeat the operation that was
being performed.
If the media caution signal does
not show this time, it indicates that
the original cartridge was nearing
the end of its useful life. Copy any
data you want to keep from the
original tape onto a new tape if
possible, and then discard the old
tape.
If the media caution signal
appears again with the second
tape, the tape heads need
cleaning.
If the media caution signal
appears after using a cleaning
cartridge, the cleaning cartridge
has probably expired and should
be discarded.
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.
