With HP TapeAssure customers can be confident that their data is safe by monitoring drive and media utilization, operational performance and life/health information for drive and media.

Data hardware encryption using AES 256-bit provides easy-to-enable security to protect the most sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges. Linear Tape File System (LTFS) is an open format for storing data on tape that makes LTO-5 and 6 tapes self-describing and file-based.

Capable of data transfer rates up to 400 MB/sec, HP’s exclusive Data Rate Matching further optimizes performance by matching host system speed to keep drives streaming, thus enabling the fastest tape performance.

The Ultrium 6650 LTO 6 External tape drive provides investment protection with full read and write backward support with LTO-5 media, and the ability to read LTO-4 cartridges. By more than doubling the compressed capacity of previous generation Ultrium drives, Hewlett Packard Enterprise customers now require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI.
