20GB Native/uncompressed (40GB compressed) Ultra2 SCSI 5.25" internal DAT/DDS-4 tape drive, Carbon in color

Utilizes DDS-4 technology to perform up to 16GB per hour

The 20/40GB DAT DDS-4 tape drive is a high performance, low-cost tape backup solution for the corporate server market. The DDS-4 tape drive is the next generation from a long line of DAT products. This drive offers 20GB native capacity with a transfer rate of 2.4MBps and will utilize hardware data compression which can double these characteristics to 40GB and 4.8MBps.

The DAT 20/40GB drive uses a helical-scan recording technique, which has been specifically designed to suit the special requirements of digital data storage devices. This drive also incorporates the ability and opportunity to rewrite the data repeatedly until the data has been read successfully just in case there is an error during the write process.

Key Benefits

High capacity, more reliability and faster data transfer rates are needed by customers ranging from the high-end workstation environment to the mid-range departmental server market. Ability to backup more data in less time and at a lower cost per Megabyte compared to the 12/24GB DAT. Offers investment protection for DDS-2 and DDS-3 customers who have standardized on the DDS technology by offering higher capacity, performance, reliability and backwards read/write capabilities.

The HP Advantage

The HP philosophy in the tape drive business has been to maintain a selective line of data recovery solutions that provide best in class performance, capacity, investment protection, and reliability at competitive prices. All using an easily interpreted migration path that considers user needs today and into the future.

A new Automatic Head Cleaning mechanism reduces the need for cleaning, protecting servers up to 40GB in capacity.
