Data Security and Encryption

The C0H28A HP 2.50TB 6.25 TB Storeever MSL LTO 6 Ultrium 6250 FC Tape Drive Data Security and Encryption refers to the features built into the tape drive that ensure the data stored on the tapes is secure and protected from unauthorized access.

The HP Storeever MSL LTO 6 Ultrium 6250 FC Tape Drive uses the LTO Ultrium format, which includes hardware-based encryption to protect data stored on the tapes. The drive uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm with a 256-bit key, which is considered to be one of the most secure encryption methods available. This ensures that any data stored on the tapes is encrypted and cannot be accessed without the proper encryption key.

In addition to the hardware-based encryption, the HP Storeever MSL LTO 6 Ultrium 6250 FC Tape Drive also includes security features such as WORM (Write Once Read Many) and write-protect to prevent data from being overwritten or erased. This ensures that the data stored on the tapes is immutable and cannot be tampered with.

Maintenance and Support

The C0H28A HP 2.50TB 6.25 TB Storeever MSL LTO 6 Ultrium 6250 FC Tape Drive is a high-performance tape drive that is designed for use in data backup and archiving applications. It is capable of storing up to 2.50TB of data on a single tape cartridge and has a transfer rate of up to 800MB/s.

To ensure that the tape drive is functioning at optimal performance, regular maintenance and support is required. This includes performing regular firmware updates, cleaning the tape drive, and inspecting the tape cartridges for damage.

In addition, it is recommended to have a service contract in place for the tape drive. This will provide access to technical support and on-site service as needed. This service contract will also ensure that the tape drive is covered in case of any hardware failures or issues.

To further ensure the longevity and reliability of the tape drive, it is important to use high-quality tape cartridges that are specifically designed for use with LTO 6 tape drives. Additionally, proper handling and storage of the tape cartridges can also help to prevent damage and prolong the life of the tapes.

Advanced Technologies

The C0H28A HP 2.50TB 6.25 TB Storeever MSL LTO 6 Ultrium 6250 FC Tape Drive is a tape drive that utilizes advanced technologies to provide high-capacity storage and fast data transfer rates. It is part of HP's Storeever MSL (Modular Smart Array) tape library system, and uses LTO (Linear Tape-Open) technology to store data on LTO-6 Ultrium tapes.

One of the advanced technologies used in the C0H28A is Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity. FC is a high-speed data transfer protocol that allows for faster data transfer rates than other types of connectivity, such as SCSI or SAS. This means that large amounts of data can be quickly transferred to and from the tape drive, making it ideal for backup and archival applications.

The C0H28A also uses Ultrium 6250 technology, which allows for a storage capacity of 2.50TB (compressed) and 6.25TB (uncompressed). This is a significant increase in capacity compared to previous generations of LTO technology, and allows for more data to be stored on a single tape.

Additionally, the C0H28A is designed to work with HP's Storeever MSL tape library system. This allows for easy integration into existing storage environments and provides advanced features such as automated tape management, remote management, and data encryption.

Tape Storage

Media preservation has come a long way, and the methods of storing data over the years are ever-changing. However, one method had stood out since its invention in 1949; and that's tape storage. If you are looking for durability, low cost, longevity, energy efficiency, density, and scalability, then investing in tape storage is a smart move. Thanks to our vast collection of tape drive storage devices, you are all covered when this is what you need. Depending on your budget and storage needs, you can choose from categories including LTO - 5 Lib Expansion, LTO - 5 Rack Mount, LTO - 5 Library, LTO - 6 Library, LTO - 6 Rack Mount, LTO - 6 Lib Expansion, LTO - 6 Internal, LTO - 6 External, LTO - 6 Auto Loader, Magstar Internal, SDLT 220 External, SDLT 220 Internal, SDLT 320 External, SDLT 320 Loader, SDLT 320 Internal, SDLT 600 External, SDLT 600 Internal, SDLT 600 Loader, Storageworks Internal, Storageworks Library, Travan 10-20GB Internal, and Travan 20-40GB Internal. Tape drives present an excellent means to write data to storage and hold onto data for a couple of decades. They make an ideal medium for long-term storage and backups.

What is Tape Storage?

A tape drive is a storage device designed to store data on magnetic tape. It is primarily used for backup and archiving purposes. It functions like a tape recorder in recording data on a loop of a flexible celluloid-like medium that is readable and erasable. Tape drives operate in two ways. The first uses a linear tape technology where the heads never touch the tape or a regular helical scan where the playback and recording heads touch the tape.

Choosing a Tape Drive; Buying Guide

There are countless tape drives available on the market today; these few considerations will keep you on track when choosing one.

Transfer rate

You'd want to go for a tape drive with the ability to complete a tape backup within your window of possibility. For instance, back up 400GB will call for a transfer rate of approximately 30GB/hour.


Tape drive manufacturers are always known to specify the drive's Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF). Check this vital information to measure the reliability of the drive. A typical example is the Travan tape drive with an MTBF of 370,000 hours at a 20% duty cycle, and running the drive longer will reduce its reliability. Depending on your needs, you can tell if this tape drive is the best or not.


A tape drive should have the capacity to store your backups, and well come at the right price. The price of the drive is a function of capacity and performance. There are continuous modifications in tape capacity; the largest capacity is always a high price. However, it would help if you considered how much value-for-money the tape drive will give you. Depending on your budget and needs, you may prefer capacity over performance and vice versa.
