HP M8605A / M8606A LTO 4 FC ACL

The HP M8605A and M8606A ACL LTO 4 tape drives represent the fourth generation of the Ultrium tape drive family and deliver a capacity of up to 1.6 terabytes (assuming two-to-one data compression) on a single cartridge. The M8605A and M8606A ACL are fully read and write compatible with third-generation Ultrium data cartridges, and offer a further degree of investment protection through backward-read compatibility with second-generation Ultrium media.

These auto cartridge loaders  (ACLs) are available for use with HP NonStop Integrity NS-series servers. The M8605A ACL is available in a rackmount configuration, and the M8606A ACL in a tabletop configuration. Both units have a 15-cartridge tape magazine.

  • Dependable: Sets new standards for data integrity and reliability with a simple and robust design based on inherently reliable Linear Tape Open (LTO) technology
  • High-capacity: Stores up to 1.6 TB per data cartridge assuming 2:1 compression
  • Fast: Minimizes interruptions with high speed and dynamic data rate matching that squeezes optimal performance from your HP NonStop server
  • Affordable: Combines high capacity with low media cost to deliver an exceptionally low total cost of ownership
  • Reliable: Protects your data with a simple, high-integrity data path, including read and write dynamic random access memory

Minimum System OS Requirements:

  • HP S-series requires Guardian Release G06.32 or later with IOAME, FCSA connection
  • HP Integrity NonStop requires Guardian Release H06.14 or later
  • HP NonStop Blade requires Guardian Release J06.03 or later
