HPE BC022A LTO-8 Ultrium 30750 12TB/30TB 300MBps 29pin SAS-6Gbps internal Tape Drive (New Bulk Pack with 90 Days Warranty)

HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives represent eight-generations of LTO technology capable of storing up to 30TB 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 a faster tape performance.

Outstanding Capacity and Performance, Monitoring Capabilities, Hardware Encryption & StoreOpen/LTFS
HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives provide up to 30 TB of compressed capacity on a single cartridge. HPE StoreOpen Standalone and Linear Tape File System (LTFS) allows customers to store data in an open format making the tape self-describing and file-based. Enables even the tightest backup window to be met with higher quality performance. Provides one of the highest level of security with encryption for strong backup data privacy to secure confidential information and address compliance quickly and with fewer cartridges.

Reliable, Well Connected and Compatible
HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives allows the tape drive to continuously adjust the speed of the drive to keep drives streaming to maximize performance and reduce start/stops which significantly increase reliability of Hewlett Packard Enterprise drives and media. SAS models qualified on Hewlett Packard Enterprise and non-Hewlett Packard Enterprise servers; including popular platforms from vendors such as Dell, IBM, and Sun. See DAPR compatibility matrix on the right rail for more information. Extensive list of supported backup and archiving software applications from Micro Focus, CA, VERITAS, Dell EMC, IBM, and many more. Design leveraged from previous HPE LTO tape drives to deliver confident backups at high duty cycles.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is the logical evolution of SCSI including its long-established software advantage and the serial physical connection interface. With enterprise storage requirements escalating and becoming more complex factors such as larger capacity greater density security scalability and accessibility are more critical than ever. Enterprise data centers must be online all the time fulfill requests from numerous users simultaneously allow for constant growth and expansion and be maintained while in operation. Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) meets all these demands while providing the highest performance.

The HPE BC022A is a Tape drive that connects with a SAS-6Gbps interface and comes with 29-Pin mini SAS connector. It has a Capacity of 12TB(Native) and 30TB(Compressed) with 300MBps of Data transfer rate. This LTO Ultrium 8 Tape drive has 90 Days Warranty.
