LTO-7 Initialized LTO-8 The HPE 1/8 Autoloader supports LTO-7 initialized LTO-8 Type M media. This is the ability of an
LTO-8 drive to write 9 TB (native) on a brand new LTO-7 cartridge instead of 6 TB (native) as
Type M media
specified by the LTO-7 format. LTO-8 Type M cartridges will be designated by an automation barcode
label ending with the last 2 characters “M8”. A normal LTO-8 cartridges is referred to as LTO-8 Type
A, has a capacity of 12 TB (native), and is indicated with an automation barcode label ending in “L8”. A
normal 6TB LTO-7 cartridge is indicated with an automation barcode label ending in “L7”.
Only unused LTO-7 cartridges may be initialized as LTO-8 Type M. Once a cartridge is initialized as
Type M, it may not be changed back to a 6TB LTO-7 cartridge. Also, an LTO-7 initialized LTO-8 Type
M cartridge can only be written and read in an LTO-8 drive; LTO-7 drives are not capable of reading
LTO-8 Type M cartridges.
LTO-8 Type M media supports existing LTO format features including data compression, encryption
and partitioning enabling LTFS. LTO-8 Type M media is not supported on WORM cartridges.
LTO-9 drives will not be backward compatible with LTO-8 Type M media.
Proven Reliability
With a rating of 2,000,000 robot load/unload cycles, the 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader provides necessary
high reliability for today's demanding environment. To improve reliability and longevity, all HPE Ultrium
products feature Data Rate Matching (DRM). This allows the tape drive to dynamically adjust the
speed of the drive down to one-third the native transfer rate of the tape drive to match the speed of
the host. This increases performance, reduces mechanical wear on the tape drive, and extends tape life.
Longevity
Organizations need to be confident that their data in archive is still there when they need it. LTO tape
media is specified with a 30 year shelf life in normal ambient conditions.
Disaster Recovery and
Security
Removable media also has the advantage that data is held 'offline' which means that archive data on
tape has the additional level of protection from the threats to on-line data from viruses, hackers and
cyber-attacks. All Ultrium tape drives (since generation 4) include hardware based data encryption to
prevent unauthorized access to data at rest and cartridges are available with write-once-read-many
(WORM) capability to prevent accidental overwriting of data archived on the tape. Both WORM and
hardware data encryption features help organizations to comply with increased data security
regulations.
Encryption
The HPE 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader offers multiple options for data encryption, depending on the
requirements for policy, regulation, compliance, and centralized key management.
•
HPE 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit
The HPE 1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit provides a library-enabled encryption solution that greatly
enhances data privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of your critical business data while supporting
compliance requirements. While there are a wide range of encryption solutions available, the HPE
1/8 G2 & MSL Encryption Kit is intended to be an easy and affordable library-enabled solution for
small businesses.
Page 3
QuickSpecs
HPE StoreEver 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader
Product Highlights
The encryption kit includes two USB key server tokens, product documentation, and firmware
support. One encryption kit is needed per autoloader and it must be physically accessible so that
the USB token can be inserted into the automation device. One of the two tokens will plug into the
USB port in the autoloader and will generate and maintain encryption keys for the LTO-5 and later
generation drives/libraries. The second token will be used as a backup token and will be used if the
first token is lost or damaged. The USB key server token uses a hardware random number
generator, password authentication, and digital envelopes for strong encryption keys and security
operations. The encryption kit provides a self-contained solution for autoloaders with no additional
software, PCs, or servers required or involved.
•
KMIP
To meet requirements for larger scale encryption key managers, the HPE 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader
supports KMIP 1.2 compliant key managers. With the purchase of the KMIP Encryption License,
the 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader will be able to request encryption keys from KMIP 1.2 compliant key
managers, for data encryption and key management.

LTO Ultrium Technology HPE LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium Tape Drives use best of breed technology. By taking the best
features from other tape technologies and combining them into a single new technology, Ultrium tape
drives are in a league of their own. The LTO Ultrium specification is an industry standard format; thus
data written on HPE Ultrium Tape Drives can be interchanged directly with LTO Ultrium Tape Drives
from other vendors.
Investment protection
HPE LTO tape drives and automation products are founded on the LTO open standard and adhere to
the published twelve-generation LTO format roadmap.
The LTO standard for backward compatibility up to generation seven is to write back one generation
and read back two generations. Eighth-generation LTO Ultrium drives read and write LTO -7 and
LTO-8 media.
As part of the LTO open standard, all HPE tape drives and media offer the same standards of
compatibility with tape drives and media manufactured by other LTO vendors.
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with variable tape drivemotor speeds
to match the tape drive transfer rate to the host output. . This feature ensures that the tape drive
continues to stream data regardless of the environment, and brings three big advantages:
•
•
•
It optimizes performance and maximizes overall efficiency, allowing the drive to respond
immediately to any data speed changes from the host.
It minimizes rewinding and repositioning of the tape, significantly reducing physical wear and
increasing reliability.
It minimizes the power requirements for the drive by reducing the number of repositions
needed.

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.
Every generation of LTO Ultrium since LTO-3 tape drives feature the ability to archive and store data
in a read-only, 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 provides the ability to archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30
years in a secure, untampered state. Ultrium tape drives include support for both rewritable and WORM
media providing for a secure, long-term archiving solution into any data protection strategy. LTO
Ultrium WORM provides the following advantages:
•
•
•
•
•
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
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- and latergeneration LTO Ultrium products
NOTE: While all HPE LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6 and LTO-5 Ultrium tape drives support LTO Ultrium
WORM media, some third, fourth and fifth-generation LTO Ultrium tape drives from other
manufacturers may not include read and write support for LTO Ultrium WORM media. For non-HPE
third- and fourth-generation LTO Ultrium 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 the tape drive.
HPE Library and Tape
Tools
The 1/8 G2 Autoloader is supported with HPE Library and Tape Tools (L&TT). L&TT is a free
diagnostic tool for all of HPE’s tape storage products. This robust diagnostic tool is designed for both
the experienced professional and the untrained administrator, and it allows customers to verify the
installation, ensure product reliability, perform diagnostics and achieve faster resolution of tape device
