Quantum's LTO-4 HH tape drive is a half-height tape drive that offers the same performance and reliability as competitors’ full-height LTO-4 tape drives. At the same time, Quantum’s LTO-4 HH is the smart choice for those looking to reduce power consumption and cooling costs in the data center because it uses up to 46% less power when idle and up to 26% less power in standby than other
LTO-4 drives on the market. In addition, it uses less power when reading and writing than LTO-3 drives, while performing 50% faster!
The drive has a native transfer rate of 120MB/sec and native capacity of up to 800GB. Its simple space saving half-height form factor uses the latest industry standard interface -- Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)-- to allow for easy installation and integration into your datacenter, while providing the same performance as competitors’ full-height LTO-4 drives. Quantum’s LTO-4 HH tape drives also protect your investment by providing backward read and write compatibility with LTO-3 media and backward read compatibility with LTO-2 media.
Quantum’s exclusive FastSense™ variable speed feature has been improved for LTO-4 HH tape drives. The FastSense feature monitors the speed of incoming data and matches the speed at which the drive streams data more effectively than the competitors’ LTO drives. The result is that Quantum’s LTO-4 HH tape drives complete backups faster, using less power than any other LTO-4 drives available. In addition, Quantum also provides exclusive features like SmartVerify™ to concurrently verify all data written to the tape, virtually eliminating the time consuming verify pass during backup operations.
And with Quantum’s LTO-4 HH drives, security is now at its highest level as drives feature AES 256-bit data encryption. Encryption on LTO-4HH tape drives is hardware based, allowing for the highest level of security without any loss of performance during the encryption process. In addition, LTO-4 HH is WORM
capable when used with LTO WORM data cartridges.
Quantum’s LTO-4 HH is available in a server-installable internal, convenient tabletop or space-efficient rackmount configuration. Quantum “Backup Ready” certified solutions allow you to go from box-to-backup in minutes with the highly reliable Quantum LTO-4 HH tape drive, world-class Backup Exec™ QuickStart software and durable Quantum media.
