HP ESL E-Series Tape Libraries
Overview
The family of HP Enterprise Systems Library (ESL) E-Series Tape Libraries offers best-in-class drive and cartridge densities. In a single
cabinet, the ESL E-Series contains 322 to 712 LTO cartridges and can scale up to 2136 TB of compressed (2:1) storage capacity
with a transfer rate of up to 24.2 TB/hr compressed (2:1). The ESL E-Series achieves drive densities up to 205 TB of compressed
(2:1) storage capacity per square foot. The ESL E-Series can be managed as a single library with up to five frames containing up to
3546 Ultrium tape cartridges and up to 44 tape drives.
The ESL E-Series supports a mixture of LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 Fibre Channel and LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 Fibre Channel Fibre Channel
technology.
HP ESL and ESL Tape Libraries are fully integrated into HP Extended Tape Library Architecture (ETLA). ETLA protects against SAN
event disruptions caused by rogue I/O requests from applications or servers. ETLA provides improved backup and restore reliability
by preventing such requests from interrupting the backup or recovery processes. This helps to significantly reduce IT resources and
the time spent investigating and resolving backup failures. ETLA simplifies the installation and integration of the library into the SAN
by providing a simple point-and-click integration process. It also provides remote management of multiple tape libraries (ESL or
EML) from a single pane of glass.
The ESL E-Series Tape Library provides the ability to easily partition the library into up to six logical tape libraries to adapt to ongoing
changes that take place in the SAN environment. The ESL E-Series libraries combined with the HP ETLA offer customers with
enterprise storage area networks (SAN) superior reliability and expandability ease of integration, and simplicity of installation and
operation.

HP ESL E-Series Tape Libraries
Product Highlights
Manageability
HP Extended Tape Library Architecture will save library and SAN administrators time and money by
simplifying library setup, configuration, and troubleshooting, increasing reliability and robustness of
libraries in the SAN, integrating with leading enterprise management applications, and offering
advanced features -- such as Access Control (Secure Manager ESL) -- that further increases backup
performance and reliability. HP offers a balanced solution - neither piece-meal nor monolithic - that
includes a generous initial feature set and allows users to buy only the advanced options they need.
Reliability
As data becomes more and more mission critical, and downtime becomes more costly to the enterprise,
customers are requiring high availability consolidated storage solutions which offer hot-plug components
and redundancies of key operating subsystems (tape drives and power supplies). With redundant power
distribution and power supplies the HP ESL Tape Libraries offer the best in high availability for continuous
operation. HP ESL E-Series also offers 3 million MSBF (mean swap between failure) for single frame and
also multiple frame solutions.
Data Privacy
To greatly enhance data privacy, HP ESL Tape Libraries are now available with LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 and
LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 hardware encrypting tape drives for secure high performance backups meeting
consortium specifications for LTO-5 and LTO-4. HP Data Protector Software can enable the drive
encryption and provide basic key management capabilities. Additional information regarding ISV's
supporting hardware encryption is available on the HP Enterprise Backup Solution website at
www.hp.com/go/ebs. The encryption on LTO-5 and LTO-4 media occurs with or without compression,
and without speed or capacity penalties. Hardware encryption is not supported on LTO-2 and LTO-3
tapes.
LTO-5 and LTO-4 uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with the longest and most secure keys -256 bits. AES-256 is implemented within Galois Counter Mode (GCM). This is a method of increasing
AES security by efficiently adding Message Authentication Codes to ensure the integrity of the backup
data stored on tape. The HP LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 and LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 tape drive(s) are designed to
be compliant with the emerging standard for tape drive security (IEEE 1619.1).
ESKM: The HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager reduces your risk of a costly data breach and reputation
damage while improving regulatory compliance with a secure centralized encryption key management
solution for HP LTO-5 and LTO-4 enterprise tape libraries (EML & ESL). In addition, the ESKM provides
strong auditable security and reliable lifetime key archival. The ESKM and LTO-5/LTO-4 drive encryption
in the ESL library provides a complete and secure privacy solution to protect customers' confidential data.
For further information on the ESKM please visit: www.hp.com/go/eskm
Density
HP ESL Libraries provide optimum density offering more capacity in less physical storage space. The ESL
712e with LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 technology reaches to 205 TB of compressed (2:1) capacity per square
foot.

Product Highlights
Scalability
HP ESL 322 Library is scalable to larger cartridge configurations via a licensing key. To increase library
capacity, a license key can be purchased that will enable an additional panel/drawer of cartridges to
become available for use.
In the HP ESL Libraries, slots are grouped into panels. When you purchase a 322e , left side panels one,
two and three are enabled by default. Up to three license keys would be needed (P/N AA942A) for a
322e to become a full slot count library. The first license enables panel four, the second license would
enable panel five, and the third license would enable panels six and seven. The following table explains
the panel layout:
Panel 1
Panel 2
Panel 3
Upper Left (108 slots)
Middle Left (106 slots)
Lower Left (108 slots)
Panel 4
Panel 5
Panel 6
Panel 7
Upper Right (108 slots)
Middle Right (104 slots)
Lower Right (108 slots)
Back Wall (0-70 slots)
Number of slots enabled in panel 7 depends on the number of tape drives installed. Each group of four
tape drives beyond the first four requires the removal of 14 slots to accommodate the drive cluster. Up to
five drive clusters can be added to the base configuration for a total of six drive clusters.
HP ESL Cross Link Kit (PN:AA947A) and ESL Cross Link Expansion Kit (PN: AF903A) allow you to connect
up to five 712e libraries together as a single tape library, scaling up to 3546 LTO slots (10638 TB,
compressed 2:1) and up to forty-four tape drives.
The ESL E-Series Cross Link Kit requires specific software and firmware supplied on CD with the Cross
Link Kit. Software licenses are required only on the first or primary library frame.
Small count tape library (322e) is only supported in multi-frame configurations if upgraded to a fully
populated tape library and only if it is the first or primary tape library.
NOTE: When installing the Cross Link Kit you will lose one cluster of either tape drives or slots along the
back wall of the first ESL cabinet. In an LTO library, the back wall clusters hold 14 slots. To review the
Cross Link Kit installation guide and Cross Link Expansion Kit guide, please visit:
http://www.hp.com/go/automated, ESL E-Series, Manuals.
HP LTO Ultrium
Technology
HP 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. Inclusion of innovative features such as Adaptive Tape Speed (ATS)
ensure that Ultrium drives can meet the performance and reliability demands of a library environment.
LTO technology is an open industry standard format; thus data written on HP Ultrium Tape Drives can be
interchanged directly with Ultrium Tape Drives from other vendors.
Data Rate Matching
Data Rate Matching combines sophisticated buffer management with HP's exclusive Infinitely Variable
Adaptive Tape Speed technology, to allow the tape drive to match its transfer rate to the host speed
dynamically and continuously across the whole 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.

Product Highlights
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.
The LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 and LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 tape drives feature the ability to archive and store
data in a 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, the tape drives can archive large amounts of data for periods of up to 30 years in a secure,
untampered state. Since all LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 and LTO-4 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 tape drives offer 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 up to 3TB (2:1 compression) 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- and fourthgeneration Ultrium products
NOTE: While all HP LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 and LTO-4 Ultrium 1840tape drives support LTO Ultrium
WORM media, some third- and fourth-generation LTO Ultrium tape drives from other manufacturers
may not include read and write support for LTO Ultrium WORM media. For non-HP third- and fourthgeneration 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 to the tape drive.
Mixed Media
Extending the E-Series flexibility and investment protection, the HP ESL E-Series tape libraries support
mixing drive technology (LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 FC and LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 FCFC).
HP Ultrium Storage
Media
HP recommends that you use HP-branded cartridges in the HP ESL E-Series Tape Libraries to assure the
highest level of protection for your valuable data. The test program for HP 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. The benefit of the HP brand specification for
media is consistent quality. Through the testing of thousands of HP drives and HP cartridges, the ideal
formulation for backup performance is defined and then continuously monitored. This hugely resourceintensive process is unique to HP and affords deep insight into the HP+HP backup solution for a wide
range of environments and duty cycles. Your best choice for ease of support and maximum dependability
is to use HP-branded Ultrium cartridges at all times.
HP strongly encourages the use of bar code labels on tapes to track media and ensure optimum library
performance and usability. Correctly labeling your media will allow the library to quickly determine
media and drive compatibility.
