Storage Capacity and Performance

The SDT-11000-BM is a Sony DDS-4 40GB DAT (Digital Audio Tape) SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) Low Voltage Differential (LVD) HH (Half Height) Internal Tape Drive. It is designed for use in servers, workstations, and other computer systems that require high-capacity data storage and backup capabilities.

The drive's storage capacity is 40GB, which is equivalent to approximately 80GB of uncompressed data. This means that it can store large amounts of data such as video, audio, images, and other types of files.

The drive's performance is also noteworthy, as it has a data transfer rate of 3MB/s (MegaBytes per second), which means that it can quickly and efficiently transfer large amounts of data. It also has a seek time of 60ms (milliseconds), which means that it can quickly access and retrieve data.

The SDT-11000-BM also features LVD technology, which allows for faster data transfer rates and a longer cable length, making it more versatile and flexible for use in different environments.

Low Voltage Differential Technology

The SDT-11000-BM is a Sony DDS-4 40GB DAT (Digital Audio Tape) SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) internal tape drive that utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) technology.

DDS-4 is the fourth generation of the DDS (Digital Data Storage) format and offers a storage capacity of 40GB per tape. The drive uses a SCSI interface to connect to a computer or server, allowing for high-speed data transfer and easy integration into existing systems.

LVD technology is a method of transmitting data over SCSI cables that uses a lower voltage than the traditional single-ended signaling method. This results in improved signal integrity, longer cable lengths, and improved performance in multi-drive environments.

The SDT-11000-BM is an internal drive, meaning it is installed inside a computer or server. The "HH" in the product name indicates that it is a Half-Height drive, meaning it is smaller in size compared to full-height drives. This makes it more suitable for use in compact systems or rack-mount servers.

Durable and Reliable Design

The SDT-11000-BM Sony DDS-4 40GB DAT SCSI Low Voltage Differential HH Internal Tape Drive is a durable and reliable tape drive that is designed for use in data backup and archiving applications. The drive is built with a durable and reliable design that ensures it can withstand the rigors of frequent use and provide long-lasting performance.

The SDT-11000-BM uses Sony's DDS-4 technology, which is capable of storing up to 40GB of data on a single tape. The drive also uses a SCSI interface for connecting to a computer or server, and it supports low voltage differential (LVD) signaling for improved performance and compatibility with older systems.

The drive is also designed to be an internal unit, meaning it is installed inside a computer or server and is not meant to be portable. The HH in the name stands for Half-High, which means that the drive is smaller than a full-height drive.
