Manufacturer’s Description

The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 960 tape drive is the latest generation of HP's Ultrium tape drive family, setting new benchmarks for Ultrium capacity, performance, compatibility, and data security. The Ultrium 960 delivers a capacity of 800 GB of compressed data on a single cartridge. With the storage industry fastest data transfer rate of 160MB/sec, the Ultrium 960 is the best HP solution for enterprise servers and small hard drive arrays, particularly where the backup window is shrinking. The Ultrium 960 tape drive is fully read and write compatible with second-generation Ultrium data cartridges, and offers a further degree of investment protection through its backward-read compatibility with first-generation Ultrium media. For IT organizations with stringent, long-term data retention requirements, the Ultrium 960 WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) data protection feature offers a simple and secure method for archiving records as part of a compliance solution to meet the toughest of industry regulations.
