The Ultrium 3280 represents HP's fifth-generation of LTO tape drive technology while providing enterprise tape drive monitoring and management capabilities with HP TapeAssure, ease of use with support for LTFS and AES 256-bit hardware data encryption, easy-to-enable security to protect the most sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges. HP's exclusive data rate matching feature further optimizes performance by matching speed of host to keep drives streaming and increase the reliability of the drive and media. The Ultrium 3280 provides investment protection with full read and write backward support with LTO-4 media, and the ability to read LTO-3 cartridge. By nearly doubling the capacity of previous generation Ultrium drives, HP customers now require fewer data cartridges to meet their storage needs, significantly reducing their IT costs and increasing their ROI.
Large-capacity drive on a single cartridge, requiring fewer data cartridges to meet storage needs, significantly reducing IT and archiving costs.
Ease of use with LTFS and HP StoreOpen
Providing a self-describing file system with HP LTO-5 cartridges, which enables the combined archiving benefits of application independence, transportability and protection from obsolescence.
AES 256-bit data encryption and support for WORM media provide a secure method for long-term retention of critical data records.
HP Library and Tape Tool (LTT) provides HP TapeAssure health monitoring and operational information on performance and utilization for peace of mind and to allow you to optimize your configuration to get the most out of your drives and media as well as help with installation and troubleshooting.
High capacity combined with low media cost delivers an exceptionally low cost of ownership and ensures a faster return on investment.
HP's exclusive data rate matching feature automatically adjusts the drive's read and write speed based on the server and network environment, which increases performance, reduces mechanical wear on the drive, and extends tape life. Soft-load feature automatically takes the data cartridge and moves it into the load position.
Delivers a compelling technology roadmap that offers higher capacity and performance tape solutions with backward read and write compatibility for previous drive generations.
