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 6 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 40GB to 160GB) 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. Other interface choices include SCSI for servers requiring SCSI connectivity and the recent addition of a SAS
interface now provides the very latest server connectivity.
Each member of the HP StorageWorks DAT family offers a complete backup solution including HP's unique One-ButtonDisaster-Recovery (OBDR) feature providing customers with the ability to restore their systems quickly and effortlessly with
the touch of a single button. HP's unique Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) utilities provide HP StorageWorks DAT customers
with a comprehensive suite of tape drive management utilities and HP's extensive testing program ensures that customers
benefit from the broadest connectivity and compatibility with HP and third-party servers, operating systems and software in

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 units and over 17 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 1.4
million backup tape drives shipped in 2006, IDC estimates that approximately 40% 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 open format ensures interchangeability between different DDS
format drives.
HP has been involved in the design and development of DAT drives since the beginning and
applies these many years of experience to its current line of DAT products. Not only does an
investment in DAT 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 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.
DAT technology provides the capacity and performance needed in a tape backup solution for
workstations and entry-level servers.
Specific Note on DAT 160
The DAT 160 drive employs the same technology as previous DAT products, and uses DAT 160
wide media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains the 2 generation
backward compatibility promise and can still read and write data to DAT 72 and DAT 40 (DDS-4)
cartridges. It does this by recognizing the different tapes (wider DAT 160 and the narrower DAT
72/DDS-4).

Product Highlights
NOTE: The DAT 160 has 180o wrap angle around the drum
Backwards
Compatibility
HP DAT tape drives are backward read-write compatible with two previous generations, thus:
DAT 160 also reads and writes DAT 72 and DDS-4
DAT 72 also reads and writes DDS-4 and DDS-3
DAT 40 also reads and writes DDS-3 and DDS-2
Proven Reliability
HP DAT drives have proven to be exceptionally reliable. The drives have demonstrated
exceptional performance with customers over many years and across different generations and
this has under pinned their popularity.
The drives are designed with reliability in mind and with the security of customer's data as a
priority. Hardware reliability is typically measured as MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures)
associated with duty cycles which suggests the amount the drive is typically used e.g. 100% duty
cycle means the drive is used for 24 hours per day. As a result of field data, the specification for
HP DDS products is stated as 125,000 hours at 100% duty cycle, or 1 million hours at a more
typical 12% duty cycle (drive used on average for 3 hours per day).
Unlike other manufactures' DAT drives, this specification is not generated in the laboratory with
limited numbers of prototype drives and assumptions on customer use; it is generated from real
customer data for the products concerned.

Automated Head
Cleaning/Intelligent
cleaning
HP DDS derives 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.
Interfaces
HP offers a range of interface options with our DAT Tape Drives in order to meet the varying
needs of our customers. HP DAT drives are available with a choice of: the standard SCSI
interface where legacy SCSI connectivity is required, USB 2.0 interface for universal plug and
play connectivity and a SAS interface option for the very latest in server connectivity.
Native SAS – Serial Attached SCSI
As its name suggests, SAS delivers a new generation of technology based on a development of
the classic SCSI interface. First introduced in May 2002, the SAS interface leverages the proven
SCSI protocol to deliver new levels of scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness for today's
system connectivity, data transport, and data storage.
HP has introduced DAT 160 with a native SAS interface that allows customers to directly connect
and backup SAS configured servers and take advantage of the latest connectivity trends.
Why SAS?
For over 20 years, the parallel bus interface has been the mainstream storage interconnect for
most storage systems. While technologies like parallel SCSI meet most performance
requirements of today's enterprise solutions, continued demands for higher speeds, increasingly
robust data integrity, smaller designs and wider standardization have cast doubt on the ability of
parallel technologies to economically keep pace with increasing CPU processing power and disk
drive speeds. SAS is the new evolution of SCSI technology designed to overcome the limitations
of the SCSI architecture and delivers a number of benefits to enterprise systems:
New levels of performance – SAS is capable of moving data at speeds of up to 3Gigabits per
second, with a clear roadmap to 12Gbs in the future. A SAS connection can support four SAS
wide lanes or potentially 4 x 300MB/s per connection.
Increased availability – another benefit of SAS-based storage subsystems is the native dual port
capability of each SAS drive, providing a redundant path to each drive in the event of a controller
failover. In addition, since each drive is on a separate point-to-point connection, losing a drive
connection only affects a single drive. Compare this to parallel SCSI in which losing a bus affects
all the drives on the bus. Point-to-point also means that each device has the ability to connect
multiple initiators, allowing peripherals to be shared between several servers.
Greater flexibility – probably the best known benefit of SAS for external storage is its configuration
flexibility. A SATA drive can be plugged into a SAS mid-plane without any modifications or
changes, the controller and the software will seamlessly support a system with a mix of SATA and
SAS disk drives.
Why choose a SAS interface DAT drive?
The above benefits of SAS explain why system manufacturers, including HP, are rapidly moving
to SAS interfaces to connect internal peripherals. Customers purchasing a HP DAT Tape Drive
with native SAS interface can benefit from:

HP StorageWorks DAT Drives
Product Highlights
Wide availability of SAS ports – SAS interfaces are now widely available on servers and systems.
Furthermore with server I/O bus technology moving from PCI-X to PCI-Express (PCI-e),
customers may find it difficult to obtain Parallel SCSI host bus adapters for the PCI-Express bus.
Increased flexibility – SAS has the ability to connect multiple initiators, allowing the tape drive to
be shared between several servers.
Investment protection – this new generation interface is supported by a robust multi-vendor
roadmap and already boasts a clear future out to 12GB/s.
Installing SAS tape drives
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 cost-effective 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.
For the most up-to-date information about recommended SAS HBAs and supported cabling
configurations with your make and model of server, always refer to http://www.hp.com/go/connect.
A full installation guide is included with the product.
Native USB
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
DA - 11883 U.S. QuickSpecs — Version 26 — 11/12/2007

HP StorageWorks DAT Drives
Product Highlights
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
Native SCSI
In addition to offering native USB and SAS connectivity, HP remain committed to producing DAT
drives with SCSI interfaces for the foreseeable future. This widely respected interface continues to
meet mainstream server requirements for performance and reliability.
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 Offline Hot-Swap NOTE: this feature is available for SCSI products. USB variants of HP DAT drives already benefit
Technology
from hot-plug capability through the USB 2.0 interface.
The HP StorageWorks DAT SCSI tape drives are available as offline hot-swap models to increase
your uptime. With these models, you never have to take down your system to replace a failed or
non-responding tape device.
The HP StorageWorks Tape Array 5300 supports "offline hot-swap" (sometimes referred to as
"warm-swap") 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).
With the HP StorageWorks DAT 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 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. 1U rack-mount kits use standard internal DAT USB and SCSI
drives for a low-cost solution. 3U rack-mount kits use standard internal DAT SCSI drives 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.
