Large Storage Capacity and High Transfer Speeds As database- and internet-related applications require greater data storage, and critical operations demand minimized downtime due to backup operations, new cost-effective solutions are needed. LTO Ultrium ultra-high-capacity cartridge is such a solution. With storage capacity of up to 6TB native and data-transfer rates of 300MB/sec native, this increased performance (measured by higher transfer speeds) means less time spent on backups and archive operations, and greater overall efficiency.
WORM Media Dell offers LTO-3 and later generation WORM media, which provide a cost-effective means for storing data in non-rewriteable format to help address compliance requirements. This means once data is written to a piece of WORM media, the data on the tape cannot be changed or overwritten. WORM media can be appended to if data is already present on the tape. The media also stores unique identifiers, which enable the drive to determine whether or not the media has been tampered with. WORM media offers a method of data retention for compliance laws such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Specific WORM media bar code labels will end in LT.
Encrypted for Security LTO-4 and later generation drives have introduced Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption algorithms to keep data secure, preventing unauthorized access to data. The hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption capability offers higher level of security during storage and transporting of sensitive information.
Cleaning LTO cartridges Dell offers the Dell PowerVault Ultrium UCC (universal cleaning cartridges) to help in long-term reliability of the LTO drive and media. Dell offers cleaning with and without cleaning bar code labels.
Dell Bar Code Labels Bar code labeling is a key organizational component that defines the efficiency of growing media libraries. Autoloaders and tape libraries require a bar code label to identify the correct data cartridge. Dell offers varying bar code labels to fit any user environment.
