Compatible Tape Format of LTO Ultrium

The AK379A HP Tape Library is compatible with the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium format. LTO is a widely-used tape format that provides high-capacity data storage and reliable data protection for long-term archiving and backup.

LTO Ultrium is the latest generation of LTO technology and it offers high storage capacity and fast data transfer rates. The AK379A supports LTO Ultrium tapes, which can store up to 15TB of uncompressed data per tape and have a data transfer rate of up to 750MB/s. LTO Ultrium tapes also have a long lifespan, with a 30-year archival life and a 15-year data retention life.

The compatibility with LTO Ultrium format means that the AK379A can be used with LTO Ultrium tapes that are widely available and compatible with other LTO Ultrium tape drives and libraries. This allows for easy integration with existing tape-based data storage systems, as well as the ability to switch to newer LTO Ultrium tapes as they become available.

LTO Ultrium tapes are also more reliable and secure, they have built-in data encryption and hardware-based data compression which makes it more suitable for long-term data storage and archiving.

2U Form Factor

The AK379A HP Tape Library has a 2U form factor, which means it is a 2 rack unit (2U) high device. This form factor is designed to be space-efficient, making it a suitable option for data centers or other environments where space is at a premium.

A 2U form factor is half the size of a standard 4U form factor device, which means it takes up half the space in a rack. This can be especially beneficial in data centers where space is limited, as it allows organizations to expand their data storage capacity without taking up too much room.

The 2U form factor also allows for greater flexibility in data center design, as it can be easily integrated into existing data center infrastructure. It can be mounted on standard 19-inch server racks, making it easy to install and service.

The 2U form factor also makes it more power efficient, as it takes less power to cool and light a smaller device, thus reducing the overall energy consumption. This can help to reduce data center operating costs and improve the overall energy efficiency of the data center.

Scalability and Expandability Options

The AK379A HP Tape Library has scalability and expandability options that make it suitable for organizations with growing data storage needs. These options allow organizations to easily increase their storage capacity as their data storage requirements grow.

One of the scalability options of the AK379A is the ability to add additional tape drives to the library. This allows organizations to increase the number of tapes that can be used and the amount of data that can be stored.

Another option is the ability to add additional tape slots. This allows organizations to increase the number of tapes that can be used in the library, which can be particularly beneficial for organizations that need to store large amounts of data.

Another feature is the ability to connect multiple AK379A Libraries together to create a larger tape library system. This allows organizations to increase their storage capacity as their data storage needs grow.

The AK379A also has the option to be integrated with the HP MSL2024 tape library, providing additional storage capacity and flexibility. The AK379A can be used as an expansion unit for the MSL2024, allowing organizations to easily expand their storage capacity as their data storage needs grow.
