HPE LTO-5 Ultrium Data Cartridge offers the best capacity/performance ratio of any tape technology, with terabyte-class capacity and high performance. It has almost double the capacity and offers faster speed compared to LTO-4 Ultrium, with built-in encryption capability and a Write Once Read Many (WORM) option - with no performance overhead. It can write or read data at 1 TB/hour, storing, encrypting and protecting up to 3 TB on a single cartridge, making it the ultimate in large-scale, 24x7, mission-critical IT environments.

Smoother base film and smaller magnetic particles increase the bit density, allowing more data to be recorded in the same amount of tape. This has increased the number of recording tracks from 896 for LTO-4 to 1280 tracks for 5th generation HPE LTO-5 Ultrium 3 TB cartridges. Intelligent cartridge design with LTO Ultrium cartridge memory chip delivers faster access time and enhanced media monitoring. Durable with first time restore ensured with fewer media failures and disrupted backups, regardless of duty cycle or environmental conditions. Ultra-reliable Intelligent cartridge with superior 'smart grabber' mechanism and mechanical interlock to prevent the leader pin from being pulled inside the tape housing. Sensors detect proper connection and prevent leader loss that would ruin the tape. Durable cartridge design and a simplified tape path to reduce wear and tear and build up of and debris (important in automation). Tested to extremes, HPE brand qualification test procedures (load/unload, shoeshine, drop testing and environmental stress testing) go far beyond what is required for the LTO Ultrium logo. This ensures maximum reliability for restoring your data. Limited lifetime warranty, HPE warrants all LTO Ultrium cartridges for up to 30 years archival life and/or 260 full backups. This ensures businesses can meet the ever-increasing demands of regulation for data retention and archiving.
