HP DAT8 (C1599a/c1539a) DDS2
Introducing HP’s new trade-ready DDS-2 drive, the HP C1599A. A direct successor to HP C1533A, the HP C1599A offers the same impressive performance and capacity while breaking new ground in terms of reliability and usability.
The HP C1599A is an ideal fit for medium to large businesses looking for reliable backup. It can be used with a wide range of host systems including PC servers, UNIX® servers and workstations, and small multi-user systems.
Thanks to HP’s uncompromising attention to quality, the HP C1599A offers an unprecedented MTBF of 300,000 hours. This means maximum protection for your customers’ data, and satisfied customers for you.
TapeAlertTM, a new industry standard developed by HP, greatly improves reliability. It informs the backup application of the state of the drive and media, and indicates any maintenance or media changes required.
The HP C1599A supports HP TapeAlert Certified Solutions, leading applications which have met HP’s high standard of TapeAlert implementation. The HP C1599A also offers an internal cleaning mechanism which prevents head clogging.
The HP C1599A is fully hardware, firmware and software compatible with the HP C1533A. In addition, it is read and write compatible with DDS format (60 meter and 90 meter) and DDS-2 format (120 meter) media, allowing your customers to interchange data with their existing DDS drives.
