C5686C HP DAT DDS-4 20/40GB internal LVD SCSI tape drive - carbon color.

The HP StorageWorks DAT 40 tape drive is a fast, dependable backup solution for smaller servers. This DDS-4 tape drive stores 40 GB of compressed data on a single cartridge at a rate of 21.6 GB/hr (assuming 2: 1 data compression). It reads and writes DDS-4, DDS-3, and DDS-2 formats, with the added bonus of reading DDS-1 90m tapes as well, making it compatible with most of the 10 million DDS drives that are in use today. Providing an ideal balance between capacity and performance, the DAT 40 benefits from low media costs and superb reliability. This drive comes in four models - internal, external, hot-plug, and offline hot-swap array module - plus it fits in HP's 3U rack-mount kit. HP StorageWorks DAT drives are based on Digital Data Storage (DDS) format, the most successful tape backup format of all time, with a worldwide installed based of over 10 million drives. The low cost of DDS media contributes to DAT's extraordinarily low cost of ownership, and its small form factor makes DDS suitable for many servers and workstations. HP StorageWorks DAT drives come with HP's unique One-Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR), providing customers the ability to restore their systems quickly and effortlessly with the touch of a single button, eliminating the need for cumbersome manual recovery procedures. A single-server copy of Yosemite Technologies TapeWare XE, an easy-to-use backup and disaster recovery package for small businesses, is included with all HP StorageWorks DAT drives. Additionally, the drives come with HP Library and Tape Tools (L&TT), the comprehensive suite of tape drive management utilities. HP's extensive testing program ensures that HP StorageWorks DAT drives are compatible with a wide range of servers, operating systems, and backup software.
