HPE LTO-7 BB874A Tape Drives represent seven-generations of LTO technology capable of storing up to 15 TB per cartridge, with HPE TapeAssure for manageability, hardware data encryption, HPE StoreOpen with LTFS for ease of use at an unprecedented performance. With HPE TapeAssure customers can be confident that their data is safe by monitoring drive and media utilization, operational performance and life/health information for drive and media.

HPE LTO-7 BB874A encryption using AES 256-bit provides easy-to-enable security to protect the most sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access of tape cartridges. Linear Tape File System (LTFS) is an open format for storing data on tape that makes LTO generation 5 and later tapes self-describing and file-based.

HPE LTO-7 BB874A capable of data transfer rates up to 300 MB/sec native and 750MB/sec compressed, HPE’s Data Rate Matching further optimizes performance by matching host system speed to keep drives streaming, thus enabling the fastest tape performance.

Design leveraged from previous HP LTO tape drives to deliver confident backups at high duty cycles.
Enables even the tightest backup window to be met with unprecedented performance.
