HPE LTO Ultrium cartridges provide reliable and low cost protection to guard your data against the threat of cyber attacks and ransomware, as well as meeting your demands for reliability when restoring data. They enable businesses to comply with the recommendations of law enforcement agencies around the world to maintain offline copies of their data. Built upon a legacy of nine generations, and with native transfer speeds of up to 1.44 TB/h for LTO-9, there is a platform for every budget. Secure AES-256 encryption provides even higher levels of data security and compliance with the most stringent industry regulations to prevent unauthorized data access. HPE StoreOpen and Linear Tape File System makes using tape as easy, flexible, portable and intuitive as using other removable and shareable media, such as a USB drive. Also, because LTO cartridges at rest require minimal additional power and cooling, they offer a greener, more sustainable long term archival solution for your data.
Reliable offline medium that creates an air gap to keep data out of the reach of cybercriminals
Built-in AES 256-bit encryption (LTO-5 to LTO-9) allows you to provide additional security for data stored on tape. With LTO encryption, even if tapes were to fall into the wrong hands, your data would be protected from unauthorized access. 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.
Lowest total cost of ownership for long-term archiving
LTO tape technology is over 80% less expensive across a 10-year period, than either all-disk or all-cloud solutions for a 1 PB archive growing at 10% per annum. Standardizing on HPE LTO Ultrium delivers the capacity to meet shrinking backup windows, industry-standard, AES 256-bit encryption (IEEE1619.1), and interchangeable read-write (RW) or WORM media, without extra space or IT resource overhead.
Highest capacity and performance of any comparable tape technology
HPE LTO-9 Ultrium data cartridges can write or read data at a blistering 3.6 TB/hour, storing, encrypting, and protecting up to 45 TB on a single cartridge, making it ideal for large-scale, 24×7, mission-critical IT environments.
Ultra-reliable storage medium
Tape is more reliable than enterprise SATA disk, with a bit error rate (BER) of 1×10 to the power of 19 for LTO-8 versus 1×10 to the power of 15 for enterprise SATA HDD’s.
