Dell PowerVault 110T Tape Drives
Taking advantage of Linear Tape Open
technology’s high performance and capacity,
Dell™ PowerVault™ 110T LTO™ Ultrium 1 and
LTO Ultrium 2 tape drives deliver reliable,
cost-effective backup support for
PowerEdge™ servers and
PowerVault NAS servers.
Protecting your data could be the most important thing you do toward your organization’s success, and tape backup
continues to be one of the most cost-effective, reliable methods of storing your mission-critical data.
Dell PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 1 and LTO Ultrium 2 tape drives help provide business continuity and disaster
recovery for midrange and enterprise server environments using Dell PowerEdge servers or PowerVault NAS servers.
Offering the high performance capacity and reliability of LTO technology, the PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 1 is ideal
for SCSI environments that need to back up 100 to 200GB of data in less than two hours per cartridge. It provides
exceptional performance with transfer rates up to 1.92GB per minute and is perfect for data compression applications.
For more data and storage intensive environments, the PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 2 offers up to 4.2GB per minute
transfer rates and data capacity up to 400GB on a single piece of tape media. Its robust performance and capacity
makes the LTO Ultrium 2 the right choice for digital video and archiving, data mining and supply chain management.
The LTO Ultrium 2 version offers more than twice the backup rate and double the cartridge capacity of first
generation LTO technology. Backup rate for LTO-1 is 54GB/hr (native); backup rate for LTO-2 is 26GB/hr
(compressed). Additionally, it uses Digital Speed Matching capabilities that avoid back-hitching by allowing the
tape drive to adjust its data rate to the server’s rate. This results in tape longevity and fast throughput. Throughput
is also enhanced with its Ultra 160 SCSI LVD interface.
Competitively and accessibly priced, the PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 2 offers exceptional value with incredibly
low cost per Gigabyte of data backup. The media is also reasonably priced giving you a complete cost-effective
solution. What’s more, fewer tape cartridges are required than first generation LTO technology resulting in low
total cost of ownership.
Additionally, the PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 2 is backward read/write compatible with LTO Ultrium 1 and 2
tapes to help protect your previous technology investments. And LTO Ultrium is the only open standard tape
storage format. Not only does it give you a choice in vendors and easy upgrades, it is compatible with industry
standard technology for further investment protection.
PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 1 and 2 tape drives are easy to incorporate into your server and storage environment.
They can be configured either internally or externally to your servers and workstations, and they come equipped with
everything you need for easy installation, from SCSI cables to a Quick Start Guide and SCSI terminator for external
deployments. Plus, they are certified with Dell PowerEdge servers (not including PowerEdge 7150SC and 8450SC) for
reliability and smooth operation.
When used with Dell tape backup software, scheduling and operating tape backups is quick and easy. And Dell
supports a wide range of software, such as Veritas® Backup Exec™, Computer Associates BrightStor ARCserve™ and
Yosemite™ TapeWare so you can choose the one that best meets your needs.
With so many different types of threats that can disrupt your business, having a reliable data backup system is
critical. Dell PowerVault 110T LTO Ultrium 1 and 2 tape drives give you the performance, capacity and reliability
to keep your organization running.
