Scalability and Expandability
Scalability and expandability refer to the ability of the C7508B HP Storage Works 5300 Tape Array to adapt to growing storage needs and accommodate additional storage capacity.
The C7508B is designed to be scalable, allowing you to add more tape drives and storage capacity as your data storage needs grow. The enclosure can support up to 8 tape drives, providing a maximum raw storage capacity of up to 1.2 PB (petabytes) using LTO-8 tape drives.
Expandability is provided by the ability to connect additional tape array enclosures to the C7508B. This allows you to increase the overall storage capacity of the system by adding more tape drives and storage media. The C7508B also supports LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6, LTO-5 tape drives and the ability to mix and match the tape drives in the same array.
Data Protection and Backup Features
Data protection and backup are important features of the C7508B HP Storage Works 5300 Tape Array. The array provides several mechanisms to protect data stored on it and ensure data availability in case of failure.
One key feature of the C7508B is its support for tape libraries, which allows you to store large amounts of data on removable tape cartridges. Tape libraries provide a cost-effective and reliable way to store data for long-term retention and disaster recovery.
The C7508B also supports advanced data protection features such as tape encryption and WORM (Write Once Read Many) capability. Tape encryption allows you to secure data stored on tape cartridges by encrypting it with a key, providing an added layer of security against unauthorized access. WORM capability allows you to write data to a tape cartridge, but once written, the data cannot be modified or deleted, providing protection against accidental or intentional data alteration.
The C7508B also supports advanced backup features such as tape copy and duplication, allowing you to create multiple copies of data stored on tape cartridges for disaster recovery and data archiving purposes. The array also supports advanced data management features such as automated tape library management and barcode scanning for easy inventory management.
Tape Drive and Media Support
The C7508B HP Storage Works 5300 Tape Array is designed to support multiple types of tape drives and media, providing a range of storage capacities and performance options.
The C7508B supports the LTO (Linear Tape-Open) tape drive format, which is a widely used standard for tape storage. The array supports LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6, LTO-5 tape drives. Each LTO-8 tape drive can store up to 12TB of compressed data and up to 30TB per cartridge. LTO-7 can store up to 6TB of compressed data and up to 15TB per cartridge, LTO-6 can store up to 2.5TB of compressed data and LTO-5 can store up to 1.5TB of compressed data.
The C7508B also supports a variety of tape media, including LTO Ultrium 8, LTO Ultrium 7, LTO Ultrium 6, and LTO Ultrium 5. These tapes are designed to provide a high storage capacity, reliability, and durability.
The C7508B also supports advanced tape drive features such as high-speed data transfer and low power consumption, which can help to improve performance and reduce operating costs.
Compatibility and Integration
The C7508B HP Storage Works 5300 Tape Array is designed to be compatible and easy to integrate with a wide range of systems and software.
The C7508B is compatible with a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and UNIX. It can also be integrated with a variety of backup software and data management software, such as HP Data Protector, Symantec Backup Exec, and Veritas NetBackup.
The C7508B also supports industry-standard protocols such as Fibre Channel, SCSI, and SAS, which allows it to easily connect to servers, storage systems, and other devices.
The C7508B also has SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support, which allows it to be monitored and managed remotely using network management software. This feature allows you to easily monitor the status of the array, troubleshoot issues, and perform maintenance tasks.
