HPE LTO6 Internal

HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives represent eight-generations of LTO technology capable of storing up to 30TB[1] per cartridge, with hardware data encryption, HPE StoreOpen with LTFS for ease of use at an unprecedented performance. Data hardware encryption using AES 256-bit provides easy-to-enable security to protect the most sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges. Linear Tape File System (LTFS) is an open format for storing data on tape that makes LTO generation 5 and later tapes self-describing and file-based. Capable of data transfer rates up to 300 MB/s native, the Data Rate Matching further optimizes performance by matching host system speed to keep drives streaming, thus enabling the fastest tape performance.
