HP LTO Tapes

Exhaustively tested, HP LTO Ultrium cartridges meet all your demands for maximum reliability when restoring data, offering high storage density, ease of management and scalable storage and backup performance. Covering six generations of capacity - LTO-1 (200 GB), LTO-2 (400 GB), LTO-3 (800 GB), LTO-4 (1.6 TB), LTO-5 (3 TB), LTO-6 (6.25 TB) - and with transfer speeds of up to 1.4 TB/hr for LTO-6, there is a platform for every need and budget. From LTO-3 onwards, LTO Ultrium WORM cartridges enable the creation of compliant, permanent and tamperproof archives.

From LTO-4 onwards, secure AES-256 encryption provides even higher levels of data security and compliance with the most stringent industry regulations to prevent unauthorized data access. From LTO-5 onwards, LTO Ultrium Linear Tape File System makes using tape as easy, flexible, portable and intuitive as using other removable and shareable media, such as a USB drive.



The IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge is designed to help you manage explosive data growth, sustain rapid, reliable access to data and ensure business resilience. The sixth generation of LTO Ultrium tape media delivers 2.5 TB native capacity and up to 6.25 TB of compressed capacity for even greater efficiency and performance. This exceptional capacity helps reduce the number of cartridges and the amount of equipment, space and labor associated with tape-based data storage.

When you entrust your data to a storage medium, you want the very highest levels of reliability. For more than 55 years—longer than any other major storage vendor—IBM has been leading the way in tape storage technology with high reliability, high capacity, and high data transfer rates.  The error correction code (ECC) used in the IBM Ultrium tape products is powerful enough to ensure reliable recovery of data even with the loss of a track or head. The high efficiency ECC is based on the same architecture as existing IBM tape technologies  Search and retrieve data files with directory tree and drag-and-drop, reduce or eliminate software licensing costs and dependencies for data retrieval from tape with IBM Spectrum Archive support.
