The new HPE LTO-9 Ultrium 45 TB tape cartridges offer enormous capacities so that you can manage your data offline, with isolated protection against cyberattacks and very low long-term TCO2.
When used as part of an active archiving strategy, LTO-9 technology enables you to explore your archives in depth without any hidden recovery costs, no matter where the data are stored.
Authorities such as the FBI recommend keeping data offline, because they are then isolated from the network and therefore inaccessible to even the best attackers, who exploit digital networks to hack businesses in order to encrypt their master data and backups.
Built-in AES-256 bit encryption (LTO-5 to LTO-9) offers additional security for data saved on tapes.
According to an ESG whitepaper entitled “The Economic Benefits of HPE StoreEver as Active Archival Storage” published in August 2020, over a period of ten years, LTO tape technology works out to be over 80% less expensive than pure hard drive or cloud solutions with a 1 PB archive growing by 10% every year.
HPE guarantees an archive life of up to 30 years for its LTO Ultrium tape cartridges, helping companies to fulfil the ever more complex statutory requirements for data storage and archiving.
HPE LTO-9 Ultrium tape cartridges write and read up to 3.6 TB per hour. Up to 45 TB* can be saved, encrypted and protected on one cartridge alone—perfect for large, enterprise-critical IT environments available round the clock (*capacity with an assumed compression of 2.5:1).
Tape is far more reliable than SATA with its bit error rate (BER) of 1x1019 for LTO-8 compared with 1x1015 for SATA hard drives. In other words, tapes, are 10,000 times more reliable than enterprise SATA hard drives.
