Tandberg Data : 24 February, 2009  (New Product)
Tandberg Data adds to flexibility of choice for businesses with the release of a 1U rackmount Half height drive and external SAS drive
Tandberg Data has announced the availability of a 1U rackmount for LTO Half Height drives, enabling users to add up to 2 drives in a 1U rack enclosure. Tandberg Data also introduced the LTO-4 HH external SAS drive. Businesses that do not have a rackmount server and who are looking for an external tape drive solution, can opt for the new LTO-HH SAS drive, and benefit from increased speed, reliability, and low power consumption.

LTO is the technology of choice for both SMB users, with more than 95% market share in the midrange tape segment. LTO tape technology offers customers great value, exceptional performance and reliability, with the lowest storage costs for long term storage of data of any technology in the market. Customers have different storage environments and by offering various generations, connectivity options and enclosures, customers can select the LTO drive that meets their specific requirements.

"Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) combines the best of fibre channel and SCSI technologies providing users and integrators with future-proof and affordable storage architectures," says Kjell Øyvind Aasene, Business Unit Manager for Tape and Tape Automation at Tandberg Data. "Bandwidth limitations have been overcome, and customers have been quick to adopt SAS. Recent IDC market data has shown that 20% of all LTO tape drive shipments are sold with a SAS interface and 53% of LTO-4 HH drives are sold with a SAS interface."

The Tandberg Data 1U rackmount is the ideal solution for customers with limited rack space, the small footprint allows customers to consolidate external storage needs within a high-density form factor. The 1U rackmount also provides a simple and effective solution for attaching tape drives to a server.

The 1U rackmount is available with SCSI or SAS connectivity and will support up to 2 Half Height LTO tape drives, providing the flexibility to accommodate a variety of drive combinations, for example: two LTO-4 HH drives will provide a compressed storage capacity of 3.2TB and a maximum compressed throughput of 1.15TB/hr.

Tandberg Data LTO Half Height tape drive family offers customers industry leading performance and reliability, combined with excellent service and support, providing customers the best value and piece of mind. Tandberg Data LTO Half Height drives are available with SCSI or SAS connectivity in server-installable internal, convenient tabletop or space-efficient rackmount configurations.
