Capacity and Performance

he 4T27A10727 IBM 12TB/30TB LTO-8 Ultrium HH SAS Internal Tape Drive is a high-capacity storage device designed for backup and archiving purposes. It has a total capacity of 12 terabytes (TB) of uncompressed data or up to 30 TB of compressed data when using LTO-8 tapes.

The drive uses a half-height (HH) form factor and connects to the host system using a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, which allows for fast data transfer rates. The drive has a maximum transfer rate of 300 MB/s for uncompressed data and up to 750 MB/s for compressed data.

The LTO-8 Ultrium technology used by the drive features advanced tape formatting and error correction capabilities, which enable reliable data storage and retrieval. The tape cartridges used with the drive have a long archival life, making them suitable for long-term data retention needs.

Encryption and Security Features

The 4T27A10727 IBM 12TB/30TB LTO-8 Ultrium HH SAS Internal Tape Drive is a high-capacity data storage device that utilizes LTO-8 technology. This tape drive offers several encryption and security features to protect sensitive data.

One of the primary security features of this tape drive is its hardware-based encryption capability, which uses the AES 256-bit algorithm. This encryption ensures that all data written to the tape is secure and cannot be accessed without the correct encryption key.

Additionally, the tape drive offers write-once-read-many (WORM) functionality, which allows data to be written to the tape once and prevents any further modifications or deletions. This feature is useful for ensuring the integrity of critical data, such as financial records or legal documents.

The tape drive also supports the IBM Spectrum Archive feature, which provides a secure way to store large amounts of data by automatically encrypting the data and creating multiple copies of the data for redundancy. This feature helps to protect against data loss and ensures that data is always available when needed.

Finally, the tape drive offers a range of authentication and access control features, including support for IBM's Key Management Service, which allows administrators to manage encryption keys and control access to the data on the tape.

Reliability and Durability

The 4T27A10727 IBM 12TB/30TB LTO-8 Ultrium HH SAS Internal Tape Drive is a high-capacity data storage device that uses Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology. This drive is designed to provide reliable and durable data backup and archival solutions for enterprise-level applications.

Reliability is an important aspect of any data storage device, and the 4T27A10727 IBM LTO-8 drive is built to ensure that your data is safe and accessible. The drive uses advanced error correction algorithms to detect and correct errors that may occur during the data transfer process. Additionally, the drive has a data transfer rate of up to 750 MB/s, which allows for faster backups and restores.

Durability is also crucial for any data storage device, especially for long-term archival purposes. The 4T27A10727 IBM LTO-8 drive features a robust design that is built to withstand tough operating conditions. The drive has a MTBF (mean time between failures) rating of 250,000 hours, which means that it is expected to operate reliably for a long time.

Furthermore, the LTO-8 tape media used by this drive is designed to have a lifespan of up to 30 years. This makes it an ideal solution for organizations that require long-term data retention, such as healthcare providers, financial institutions, and government agencies.
