HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives are essential for a good disaster recovery plan and as key media for archiving. The portability of tape allows it to be easily and safely stored offsite. Tape provides the last line of defense against virus, fire, floods, hackers, human error, software bugs, and replicated errors that could otherwise put data at risk.


As Businesses understand that storing, securing, and repurposing data assets are fundamental to their success, the position of tape as the ideal low-cost data archiving solution is being strengthened. Tape media is financially viable, and its long shelf life makes it the smarter medium for long-term storage that helps meet regulatory compliance. The adoption of LTO with LTFS is increasing rapidly in the media and entertainment industry, healthcare and medical imaging, video surveillance, and high-performance computing environments.


HPE-branded LTO Ultrium media enhances performance reliably. Our cartridges pass exhaustive laboratory tests that go beyond the requirements of industry standard logo specifications. Our goal is to provide greater quality for backup and archiving operations and, for restoring your data when you need it most.
