Operating Systems:

Product Description
The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 448 Tape Drive based on second generation LTO technology is positioned as the affordable tape backup solution providing mid-range customers with the best mix of features and value today and in the future for protecting data on their mid-range SCSI and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)-based servers. The Ultrium 448 Tape Drive delivers a compressed storage capacity of 400 GB per data cartridge using LTO 2 media. By doubling the capacity of the current half-height HP Ultrium 232 Tape Drive, customers will now use fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, reducing their IT costs and increasing their return on investment. Capable of backing up half a terabyte of storage in 2.5 hours, the fast performance of the Ultrium 448 is enhanced by HP’s exclusive dynamic data rate matching feature which can match the throughput of the host. The Ultrium 448 Tape Drive is fully read and write compatible with all first and second-generation Ultrium drives and media.
