Dell Storage Powervault lto Ultrium family



Certified Solution

Dell Tape LTO Media delivers quality, compatibility and reliability, all at an affordable price, and is recommended for use with all Dell PowerVault™ tape backup devices and third-party tape backup products. Dell products have been tested and validated on Dell systems to ensure compatibility and long working life with your servers. Dell media offers smooth, stable transitions with minimal error rate and high efficiency. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty* by Dell technical service and support, you can rely on Dell's proven leadership and quality to help ensure that your data is protected and accessible.

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.

Dell Custom Bar Code Service

Dell offers custom barcode labeling on LTO Ultrium and cleaning cartridges. Dell barcode-labeled data cartridges are packaged in convenient 20-piece library packs to support the demands of automated systems. The Dell Library Pack is specifically designed for today’s automated storage environments. Dell barcode-labeled data cartridges are packaged in a thermo-formed, plastic library pack, which shortens the backup window by allowing for easy tape library upload. Dell raises the bar to help IT managers enhance the efficiency of their automated environments.
