Quantum DLT 8000
The Quantum DLT 8000 tape drive system advances the standard in tape backup with improvements to capacity, performance, and cost of ownership while maintaining compatibility with a worldwide installed base of more than one million DLTtape™ drives.
Robust, Reliable, Proven Tape Backup, The Industry Standard
- Sustained Transfer Rate (MB/sec) Native 6 Compressed (up to) 121
- Burst Transfer Rate (MB/sec) Synchronous 20 Asynchronous 12
- Formatted Capacity (GB) Native 40 Compressed 80
- Average File Access Time (sec) 60
- Interface SCSI–2 Fast/Wide (SE/LVD or HVD)
Through a number of design and technological innovations, the Quantum DLT 8000 tape drive delivers higher performance, greater capacity, increased reliability, and more functionality at a better price. For example, the Quantum DLT 8000 provides a native storage capacity of 40 gigabytes (GB) and a native transfer rate of 6 megabytes per second (MB/sec).
This represents a 15 percent higher capacity and 20 percent faster throughput than the Quantum DLT 7000 tape drive To ensure superior accuracy, the Quantum DLT 8000 recording head boasts an average life of 50,000 hours.
In fact, the Quantum DLT 8000 tape drive is rated at 250,000 hours MTBF at 100 percent duty cycle, which is 25 percent greater than the pervious DLTtape products. The Quantum DLTtape system is also economical and incredibly reliable, with a shelf life of 30 years and a working life of one million passes.
By offering a high level of performance at an exceptional price, the Quantum DLT 8000 makes tape backup practical and affordable for a wide range of applications, including midrange computers, network servers, high-end workstations, and mainframe environments running UNIX, NetWare, Microsoft Windows NT, LINUX, or proprietary operating systems.
