Dell PowerVault LTO Tape Drives - Taking advantage of Linear Tape Open (LTO) technology’s high performance and capacity, Dell™ PowerVault™ LTO-4-120 tape drives deliver reliable, cost-effective backup support for PowerEdge™ servers and PowerVault NAS servers

High-performance, reliable, cost-effective data protection - Businesses and public organizations create mountains of data each day—information that is compiled, analyzed, moved, shared, stored, and which may have to be archived to comply with organizational, industry, and government regulations. As your organization increasingly relies on data-rich applications to generate revenue and achieve operational efficiency, protecting your data is vital; in fact, it may be the single most important thing you can do to ensure the ongoing success of your business. Tape backup has traditionally been one of the most cost-effective ways of keeping data safe and available.

LTO Tape Technology: The Value of Standards - Linear Tape Open™, or LTO, technology was developed by an industry consortium to provide the reliability, scalability, and performance that today’s IT environments demand of tape-storage solutions. A single LTO tape can now house up to 800GB of data, and transfer data at up to 120MB/sec., making LTO ideal for the high capacity and streaming backup requirements of today’s enterprises.

The LTO standard features a clear growth path, from the original LTO-1, to the new LTO-4, and with a roadmap to future development of LTO-5 and LTO-6.

LTO tape’s open standard enables tape and drive compatibility among vendors, and has spawned competition that leads to quality products, innovation, and widespread availability at the best prices. Openness means the customer wins.

The Dell PowerVault LTO Family Dell PowerVault LTO tape drives help provide business continuity and disaster recovery for organizations of all sizes using Dell PowerEdge servers or PowerVault NAS servers. The Dell PowerVault LTO tape drive family offers a range of products that balance affordability and performance.

  • The PowerVault LTO-4-120 is the largest-capacity and highest transfer rate LTO drive available today. The PowerVault LTO-4-120 features device-level encryption for advanced security with no impact on performance, and is the first LTO drive sold by Dell to offer a 3Gb Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface for higher server compatibility and investment protection.

Two Form Factors – Performance vs Savings - LTO half-height drives are designed to run at a slightly lower transfer rate, resulting in less energy consumption and operating expenses over time, compared to the full-height versions. Because half-height drives follow the same LTO standard as full-height drives, a customer can consider both options when evaluating their storage solutions with current and future LTO products.

The Value of Security - LTO-4 also offer the user added data protection and security features. For customers with data-compliance requirements, LTO-4 offers write-once-read-many (WORM) technology. Data that is written to an LTO WORM cartridge in WORM format cannot be re-written or altered. Organizations that choose LTO-4 tape for backups will also benefit from being able to use their cost-effective tape solution to meet government and industry requirements for unalterable archives of data.

The Dell PowerVault LTO-4-120 tape drive utilizes a secret 256-bit key for data encryption, which is performed in the tape device after host data is received and compressed, at full line speed—resulting in no impact on throughput performance and no host-processor MIPS overhead. Device level encryption removes the need for costly and complex encryption software.
