Highest Capacity and Performance of any Comparable Tape

HPE LTO 8 Ultrium can write or read data at a blistering 2.7 TB/hour, storing, encrypting and protecting up to 30 TB on a single cartridge, making it ideal for large-scale, 24 x 7, mission-critical IT environments (assumes 2.5:1 compression).

An 85% increase in the number of tracks and a 8% increase in bit density has permitted an increase in capacity from 15 TB for LTO 7 to 30 TB to LTO 8: from 3,584 tracks for LTO 6 to 6,656 tracks for 8th generation HPE LTO 8 Ultrium 30TB cartridges (assuming 2.5:1 compression).

HPE LTO Ultrium cartridge memory chip delivers faster access time and enhanced media monitoring.

First time restore ensured with fewer media failures and disrupted backups,
regardless of duty cycle or environmental conditions.
