Dell PowerVault 110T

DLT Tape Drives

The Dell ™ PowerVault ™

110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 tape drives are solutions that cost-effectively provide performance, capacity and

Space-Conscious Manageability

To help meet increasing storage capacity demands, Dell delivers two popular midrange DLT drives in a new half-height format – the PowerVault DLT VS80 and DLT VS160. Designed to fit easily within rack-mounted server environments, both DLT drives are ideal for customers looking for the same high performance, capacity and reliability found in DLT technologies in a space-conscious format. reliability in a server-friendly, half-height format.

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 work easily with most current equipment and technology to provide exceptional manageability for rapid deployment and ease-of-use. They integrate seamlessly with Dell

PowerEdge ™ servers and PowerVault storage products. Both are backwards read compatible with DLT1 and DLT

VS80 tape drives that use DLTtapeIV media. The DLT VS160 uses new DLTtapeVS1 media, but can also backwards read DLTtapeIV media written by a DLT VS80 drive. DLT technology is supported by most major software and operating system OEMs for further manageability and integration simplicity.

Furthermore, both midrange DLT drives are easy to order online with PowerEdge servers either as an integrated drive within tower and rack-mounted servers or as an externally attached tabletop device that comes housed with a

SCSI cable, cooling fan, power cord and its own power supply.

Exceptional Value

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 are cost-effective tape drive solutions designed to economically meet the higher capacity requirements of enterprise customers. Both drives offer moderate capacity and a slim form factor that fits efficiently into tower or rack-mounted servers.

Performance, Capacity and Reliability

With a maximum native transfer rate of 3MB/s (DLT VS80) and 8MB/s (DLT VS160), both drives deliver high performance. The native sustained drive rate of 10GB/hr (DLT VS80) and 28GB/hr (DLT VS160) gives you the ability to store your information quickly. Both drives also provide impressive capacity capabilities at 40GB native and 80GB compressed for the DLT VS80 and 80GB native and 160GB compressed for the DLT VS160.

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 include high reliability features designed to help ensure maximum uptime. They boast a demonstrated 200,000 hours/250,000 hours MTBF (Meantime Between Failure) for the DLT

VS80 and DLT VS160 respectively and both offer 30,000 hours of head life. Both midrange drives are designed to withstand more than 50,000 media passes for increased longevity. Additionally, the patented TapeSense Circuitry design helps prevent swallowing-the-leader failures. Both tape drive’s reliability are also enhanced with their low power draw, simplified tape path design and reduced part count.

Moreover, the PowerVault 110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 incorporate the latest technology to protect data integrity. They use an Error Correcting Code (ECC) scheme to reconstruct missing or damaged data and their immediate read-after-write feature instantly verifies that data is written properly. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS80 and DLT VS160 offer a space-conscious tape drive solution simply, cost effectively and powerfully.
