The HP StorageWorks Rack-Mount Kit provides a high-density, rack-mountable tape drive enclosure for direct-attach SCSI backup and archiving applications. Because this enclosure uses standard internal tape drives, it provides a cost-effective means of mounting tape drives in rack server environments. This enclosure will provide you with scalability, allowing you to add drives and migrate to new tape technologies as your capacity and performance needs grow. This HP StorageWorks Rack-Mount Kit is supported by ProLiant, HP Integrity, and AlphaServer platforms.
The 3U Rack-Mount Kit holds up to two full-height internal tape drives, four half-height tape drives, or a combination of one full-height and two half-height tape drives. This enclosure supports a wide range of tape technologies, including DAT, DLT VS, SDLT, and Ultrium, with a maximum capacity of 1.6 TB using two Ultrium 960 drives or four Ultrium 448 drives (assuming 2:1data compression). The enclosure can support up to four separate SCSI buses, allowing tape drives to be configured for best performance.
The 3U Rack-Mount Kit is 100% ROHS compliant (meets 2006 European legislation for removal of hazardous substances).
