    Backup and restore
    Using T9840 tape drives for backup and restore shortens backup and recovery times and improves system response time. The T9840 can be used in combination with other drives, including the T9940 tape drive, to match specific backup and restore performance and capacity needs.
    Offline processing
    Fast-access T9840 tape drives provide a cost-efficient option to disk for offline processing applications.
    Fixed content distribution
    Tape libraries can act as a high-volume source for fixed content data when outfitted with fast-access T9840 tape drives. When implemented with VolSafe write-once-read-many (WORM) secure media, T9840 tape drives help secure high-value fixed content while it is distributed.

     

    Faster access to information
    Faster data access enables you to meet more of your data storage needs with affordable tape, minimizing the need for higher-cost disk.
    Reduced backup windows
    With native data transfer rates of 30 megabytes per second, the T9840C drive allows you to store more data in less time to meet your shrinking backup windows.
    Increased productivity
    Higher data transfer rates enable you to reduce batch windows and improve access to data, so your IT staff can get more work done in less time.
    Higher resource utilization
    The T9840C drive stores 40 gigabytes per cartridge, twice the capacity of StorageTek T9840A and T9840B tape drives. This effectively doubles the capacity of existing cartridges and libraries.

     

    Standard features:
    StorageTek VolSafe media support
    The T9840 drives support VolSafe cartridges, a high-capacity write-once-read-many (WORM) storage solution. VolSafe® is a non-erasable, non-rewritable tape media for archiving critical data.
    Connectivity choices
    The T9840 products include two-gigabit Fibre Channel, one-gigabit Fibre Channel, two-gigabit FICON, SCSI HVD, or ESCON connectivity, enabling you to choose the right connectivity for your implementation.
    FICON for distance
    The FICON interface drives support distances up to 100 kilometers (versus nine kilometers for ESCON) without channel extensions or significant throughput reduction. This enables remote storage applications and increases your disaster recovery options.
    SAN-readiness
    A native two-gigabit fabric-aware Fibre Channel interface makes the T9840C drive ready for the demands of high-speed SAN environments and storage server networks.
