HP StorageWorks DLT VS Family Tape Drive
Overview
Backing up to tape is a key component of a complete storage strategy. Tape drives can be used for creating daily and weekly
backups and tape allows customers to remove information off-site. Tape can be used for archival purposes to retain data for up to
30 years. The new HP StorageWorks DLT VS160 Tape Drive provides 160 GB capacity and 16 MB/s performance compressed. This
is double the capacity and performance of the DLT VS80, reducing the overall cost of ownership, increasing the capacity in a single
tape drive, reducing the number of cartridges needed to store the same amount of information and resulting in less downtime
needed for back-ups. The DLT VS160 is a half-height drive based on DLT tape technology. Customers who have outgrown previousgeneration DLT drives can move to the DLT VS160 and get increased capacity and performance and backward-read compatibility
with the DLT VS80 formatted media. The DLT VS160 media can be read by the SDLT 600 providing a longer-term upgrade solution
when customers outgrow the DLT VS160.

HP StorageWorks DLT VS Family Tape Drive
Product Highlights
DLT VS Technology
The DLT VS Tape Drives provide HP customers with value-capacity solutions that share much of the
technology used other DLT tape drives. From its compatibility with previous-generation drives to its use of
DLZ data compression and RLL encoding, DLT VS technology offers HP customers many of the same
technological features found in previous generation DLT drives, while improving such features as
capacity and performance.
Media and Drive
Compatibility
HP recommends that you use HP-branded cartridges in your HP tape drives to assure the highest level of
protection for your valuable data. HP's test program for HP DLT VS media is the most thorough and
comprehensive in the industry. All HP cartridges must satisfy an exhaustive battery of additional tests that
relate directly to real-life situations, where real data and real businesses are at stake. Non-HP cartridges,
whilst fully compatible, are less optimized for use in HP tape devices. Your best choice for ease of
support and maximum dependability is to use HP-branded DLT cartridges at all times.
The DLT VS160 Tape drive uses the DLTtape VS1 160GB data cartridge and DLTtape VS160 cleaning
cartridge. The DLTtape VS1 media is a new type of media with improvements over the DLT Type IV
media used in the DLT VS80 drive. It offers higher capacity and improved reliability. The DLT VS80 Tape
Drive utilizes HP DLTIV data cartridges as well as industry standard DLT Type IV media and DLT VS
cleaning cartridges.
Software in the Box
The HP StorageWorks DLT VS tape drives include HP Data Protector Express Single Server Edition
software. This easy to use backup application, based on Data Protector Express, robustly protects a
single Windows, Linux or NetWare server. Also included is the Data Protector Express Bare Metal
Disaster Recovery (BMDR) option which provides automated system recovery of the 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 DLT VS
tape drives. For more information about Data Protector Express Single Server Edition please visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress/sse.
As well as getting the Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software as part of the HP
StorageWorks DLT VS tape drives solution, purchasers can easily and economically upgrade to the classleading Data Protector Express backup/recovery software. This is a special part number, only available
for registered users of Data Protector Express Single Server Edition that gives a significant discount off the
regular price of Data Protector Express, to recognize the value of the in-box software. For more
information about upgrading Data Protector Express Single Server Edition to Data Protector Express visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress/sse/upgrade.
If the HP StorageWorks DLT VS tape drive is for a large environment that requires UNIX support and/or
enterprise class application and feature support then HP Data Protector software is the recommended
backup/recovery software. For more information and evaluation software please visit
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotector.
