Product Overview

The Tandberg Data 800GB Native 1.6TB Compressed LTO Ultrium 4 SCSI Internal Tape Drive (3502-LTO) is a high-performance tape drive designed for data backup, archiving, and disaster recovery. It uses Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology, which is a widely-adopted open format for tape storage. This drive is capable of storing 800GB of native data and up to 1.6TB of compressed data, making it a cost-effective solution for large data storage needs. The drive features a SCSI interface, providing reliable and fast data transfer. It is a internal drive, which is designed to fit inside a server or workstation. With a compact design, it is easy to install and maintain. Overall, the Tandberg Data 3502-LTO tape drive is an ideal choice for businesses and organizations looking for a high-capacity, reliable, and cost-effective tape backup solution.

Capacity and Compression

The Tandberg Data 3502-LTO tape drive has a native storage capacity of 800GB and a compressed storage capacity of 1.6TB. This means that when data is written to the tape in its uncompressed form, it can store up to 800GB of data. However, the drive also has the ability to compress data before it is written to the tape, which can effectively double the storage capacity to 1.6TB. This compression is done using LTO Ultrium 4 compression algorithm. This feature allows users to store more data on a single tape, reducing the number of tapes required for backups and archives, and ultimately reducing the cost of storage.

In terms of tape compression ratio, LTO-4 is capable of compressing data 2:1, which means that a 800GB of uncompressed data can be compressed to 400GB, and then written to the tape. This compression ratio is similar in LTO-5 and LTO-6. Keep in mind that the compression ratio will vary depending on the type of data being backed up. Compression is most effective for data that has a high degree of redundancy, such as image, video, audio and text files.

Compatibility and System Requirements

The Tandberg Data 3502-LTO tape drive is compatible with a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and Unix. It also supports a number of backup software applications, including Symantec Backup Exec, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, and HP Data Protector.

In terms of system requirements, the drive requires a SCSI host bus adapter (HBA) to connect to the host computer. The SCSI interface supports Ultra320, Ultra160, and Ultra2 SCSI transfer rates. The drive also requires a SCSI cable and a power cable to connect to the host computer.

The drive is designed for internal use and it will fit in standard 5.25-inch drive bays. It has dimensions of 146mm (W) x 101.6mm (D) x 41.3mm (H) and weight of 1.8 kg.

The drive also requires a certain amount of power to operate. It draws 6.5W in standby mode, 12W in idle mode, and 27W during operation.

It's important to check the compatibility and system requirements before purchasing the drive to ensure that it will work with your existing hardware and software setup.
