The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 tape drive is HP's third generation of half-height LTO tape drive technology. As the highest capacity, fastest performance half-height drive in the StorageWorks family, the Ultrium 920 delivers a compressed storage capacity of 800 GB per data cartridge and a compressed data transfer rate of 432 GB per hour, two and a half times faster than the previous generation Ultrium 448 tape drive. Available in SAS models, the Ultrium 920 is ideal for midrange and departmental servers. The Ultrium 920 Tape Drive is fully read and write compatible with all second-generation Ultrium drives and media and offers further investment protection through its backward-read compatibility with first-generation Ultrium media. For IT organizations with stringent, long-term data retention requirements, the Ultrium 920's WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) data protection feature offers a simple and secure method for archiving records as part of a compliance solution to meet the toughest of industry regulations.
