Overview
The family of HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives is HP's premier line of backup devices. Based on the LTO Ultrium format, an
open standard with a well-defined six-generation roadmap, HP Ultrium tape drives offer customers the best choice for investment
protection. With ultimate reliability and ease of use in mind, even at 100% duty cycles, HP's rugged design builds on superior LTO
technology and adds advanced features like hardware data encryption to create a new level of data protection. The tape drives
employ dynamic data rate matching to adjust to the speed of the host, reducing wear and tear on both drive and media and
increasing performance, even on slower hosts. HP's ultra-durable soft-load feature automatically positions the data cartridge, and
the highly reliable HP leader-capture mechanism virtually eliminates lost leaders, increasing the success of your backup and restore
operations. Support for HP One-Button Disaster Recovery provides the easiest way to restore data in the event of a disaster. The
StorageWorks family of tape drives also features support for HP Library and Tape Tools which provides a single application for drive
management, diagnostics, and performance optimization. If data is critical to your business, protect it with an HP StorageWorks
Ultrium tape drive.

HP StorageWorks LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 Tape Drive sets new standards for capacity, performance and security. The Ultrium 1840
represents HP's fourth-generation of LTO tape drive technology capable of storing up to 1.6TB per cartridge while providing
hardware-based data encryption to enable greater levels of security and unprecedented performance. AES 256-bit hardware data
encryption provides easy-to-enable security to protect the most sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges. By
using Ultrium 1840 hardware data encryption, not only is data fully capable of being compressed therefore maximizing capacity,
encrypted backups are completed without a loss in performance. Capable of data transfer rates up to 240MB/sec, HP's exclusive
Data Rate Matching feature further optimizes performance by matching speed of host to keep drives streaming and increase to
reliability of the drive and media. The Ultrium 1840 provides investment protection with full read and write support with LTO-3
media, and the ability to read LTO-2 cartridge. By doubling the capacity of previous generation Ultrium drives, HP customers now
require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI.
