  • LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 tape drive support: Compared to LTO-3 Ultrium 960 tape drives, LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 tape drive capacity is doubled, performance is increased by approximately 50% and encryption is supported.
  • AES 256-bit embedded hardware encryption with compression: Provides a high level of encryption security, with compression, for strong backup data privacy to secure confidential information and address compliance quickly.
  • ESL E-Series multi-unit scalability supports up to five connected frames: The ESL E-Series can be managed as a single library with up to 3546 Ultrium cartridges or 3138 SDLT cartridges and up to 44 tape drives using the ESL E-Series Cross Link Kit and Cross Link Expansion Kit. This allows for better utilization of existing tape libraries and easier management and support.
  • Best-in-class cartridge and best-in-class tape drive density: In a single frame the HP StorageWorks ESL E-Series Tape Library has the ability to scale from 322 to 712 LTO or 286 to 630 SDLT cartridges and up to twenty-four SDLT or Ultrium tape drives At 109 TB per square foot, the ESL E-Series minimizes floor space while maximizing storage capacity.
  • Provides a platform for improved backup and restore reliability (ETLA): The HP StorageWorks Extended Tape Library Architecture (ETLA) provides customers with improved backup and restore reliability. Based on research conducted by Axios Partners in 2005, customers purchasing an ESL E-Series with ETLA experienced up to 90% reduction in annualized backup failures
  • Simplified installation and SAN integration (ETLA): HP StorageWorks Extended Tape Library Architecture (ETLA) simplifies the installation and integration of the library into the SAN. ETLA-based libraries automate and simplify the entire SAN integration process through a simple point-and-click process.
  • Simplified backup through more automated management (ETLA): HP StorageWorks Extended Tape Library Architecture (ETLA) simplifies backup through better, more automated management of the entire library. ETLA-based libraries are self-aware, self-managed, and automatically maintained, to simplify monitoring and maintenance.
  • Partitioning support: The HP StorageWorks ESL E-Series Tape Library provides the ability to easily partition the library into up to six virtual tape libraries. Partitioning can be used to easily change the tape library configuration to adapt to ongoing changes that take place in the SAN environment.
  • Mixed media capability: Supports a mixture of LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 FC, LTO-3 Ultrium 960 FC and SDLT 600 tape drives in a single cabinet. This allows customers to easily migrate their library forward as new tape drive technologies become available.
  • Factory integration: The ESL E-Series tape library is assembled configured and tested at an HP manufacturing site prior to shipment to the customer as a single unit. This significantly reduces the installation time and allows the tape library to become operational more quickly.
