About HP LTO-3

The HP LTO-3 Ultrium Re-writable Data Cartridge offers an 800GB capacity for reliable data protection. The read speed is 120MB per second. This data cartridge delivers one million passes on any area of the tape, equating to more than 20,000 end-to-end passes or 260 full tape backups. Other features include 704 data tracks, 680m length and 245 kbits per inch density.

HP LTO-3 Features

  • HP LTO-5 Ultrium can write or read data at a blistering 1 TB/hour, storing, encrypting and protecting up to 3 TB on a single cartridge, making it the big hitter in large-scale, 24x7, mission-critical IT environments
  • Smoother base film and smaller magnetic particles increase the bit density, allowing more data to be recorded in the same amount of tape. This has, for example, increased the number of recording tracks from 896 for LTO-4 to 1280 tracks for 5th generation HP LTO-5 Ultrium 3 TB cartridges
  • LTO Ultrium cartridge memory chip delivers faster access time and enhanced media monitoring
  • First time restore ensured with fewer media failures and disrupted backups, regardless of duty cycle or environmental conditions
  • Superior 'smart grabber' mechanism and mechanical interlock to prevent the leader pin from being pulled inside the tape housing. Sensors detect proper connection and prevent leader loss that would ruin the tape
  • Simplified tape path to reduce wear and tear and build up of and debris (important in automation)
  • HP brand qualification test procedures (load/unload, shoeshine, drop testing and environmental stress testing) go far beyond what is required for the LTO Ultrium logo. This ensures maximum reliability for restoring your data
  • Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) version provides tamperproof, compliant data storage
