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-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 the new 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 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 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. 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

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 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.
Ultrium 960 and Ultrium 1840 tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data in a nonrewriteable 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, Ultrium drives can
archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30 years in a secure, untampered state. Since all
Ultrium 960 and Ultrium 1840 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, the
Ultrium 960 and Ultrium 1840 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) or 1.6TB (LTO-4) 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 Ultrium 960 and Ultrium 1840 tape drives support LTO Ultrium WORM media,
some third-generation 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.

HP OBDR (One-Button
Disaster Recovery)
One-Button Disaster Recovery is an HP exclusive feature that provides fast and simple disaster recovery
through the use of an HP tape drive. 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.
Software in the Box
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives include HP StorageWorks Data Protector Express Single Server
Edition backup/recovery software and the HP StorageWorks Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster
Recovery option. Data Protector Express Single Server Edition is an easy-to-use backup application to
protect a single Windows, Linux or NetWare server. With support for hardware data encryption, HP LTO4 Ultrium 1840 tape drives are able to provide a safe and secure backup without the performance hit
other methods to tape encryption might provide. The Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster
Recovery (BMDR) option provides automated system recovery of that 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.
As well as getting the Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software as part of the HP
StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives solution, purchasers can also upgrade to the class-leading Data

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.

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 Ultrium tape drive is appropriate for use with that server. No terminator is
required for internal models (assumes use of terminated cable). The external model features "autotermination" – no terminator is required. New SAS-based Ultrium models ship with a 4-channel split
cable which allows direct attach from embedded SAS controller on host to a tape drive and remaining 3
channels to disk.
NOTE: Visit http://www.hp.com/go/connect for the latest compatibility information.
Performance Tuning
You will need to connect the drive to a dedicated SCSI Host Bus Adaptor (HBA) that is Ultra 160 HBA or
higher. To supply data to the drive fast enough to achieve full performance from an HP Ultrium tape
drive, you will need at least eight disks as part of a RAID 5 array with read cache enabled. You can test
the speed of your system with tools provided at http://www.hp.com/support/pat or with HP's
StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools application.
To achieve full performance from your tape drive, do not use the native backup application within the
operating system (e.g., NT® Backup, Windows® 2000 Backup). For full details of supported backup
applications, see http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/compatibility/tapebackup/index.html
