  • Affordable capacity: HP Ultrium half-height tape drives provide superdrive capacity at a low price, and the fact that these drives use widely available industry-standard media makes their overall cost of ownership even lower
  • Affordable performance: High capacity goes hand-in-hand with high performance. The Ultrium 448 can fill an Ultrium 2 data cartridge with 400 GB of compressed data in 2.5 hours, while the Ultrium 232 can back up 200 GB of compressed data in less than two hours (assuming 2:1 data compression)
  • Enterprise-class reliability: The design of HP Ultrium half-height tape drives is leveraged from HP’s outstandingly reliable full-height Ultrium tape drives, incorporating features such as data rate matching, soft load, and simple tape path to make these drives as dependable as their bigger siblings
  • Compact form factor: HP pioneered Ultrium half-height tape drives in 2001, and still makes the only half-height LTO-1 drives on the market. Their compact form factor means these drives fit internally in most servers and take up less space in rack environments
  • Investment protection: HP Ultrium half-height tape drives are fully read-and write-compatible with all Ultrium tape drives from HP and other manufacturers, allowing for flexibility in deployment. And when you choose an HP Ultrium tape drive, you’re buying from the leading manufacturer of LTO tape drives
  • Simple disaster recovery: All HP Ultrium tape drives support HP StorageWorks One-Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR), a unique firmware design that works with your backup software to ensure that, when the worst happens, you can recover your data quickly and completely with the touch of a button
  • Complete solution: Included in the box is a single-server copy of HP OpenView Storage Data Protector, allowing you to implement sophisticated data protection features or an easy-to-use backup application, as your needs dictate
  • Active head cleaning: HP Ultrium tape drives perform their own automated cleaning that increases head life and greatly reduces the need for using the cleaning cartridge

Software included
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives include HP Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software. This easy to use backup application, based on Data Protector Express, robustly protects a single Windows, Linux or NetWare server. Also included is the Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster Recovery (BMDR) option which provides automated system recovery of the server following a major hardware or software failure. The fastest method to recovery the server is to use the Data Protector Express BMDR option and the One Button Disaster Recovery feature of the HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives. As well as getting the Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software as part of the HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drives solution, purchasers can easily and economically upgrade to the class-leading Data Protector Express backup/recovery software. This is a special part number, only available for registered users of Data Protector Express Single Server Edition, that gives a significant discount off the regular price of Data Protector Express, to recognize the value of the in-box software. If the HP StorageWorks Ultrium tape drive is for a large environment that requires UNIX support and/or enterprise class application and feature support then HP Data Protector software is the recommended backup/recovery software.
