The HPE formerly the HP LTO-6 Ultrium cartrdiges C7976A can hold up to 2.5TB of native or uncompressed capacity with up to 6.25TB of compressed data. The LTO-6 Ultrium RW MP Data Cartridge C7976A is made using Metal Particle (MP) which is the magnetic material used on the recording surface for all LTO tape up to LTO6, the 6th Generation of LTO tapes. The HPE LTO-6 Ultrium RW Data Cartridge is suitable for read and write in all LTO6 Ultrium 6 tape drives, and also suitable for read and write in LTO7 Ultrium 7 tape drives, but cannot be read or written to in all LTO8 Ultrium 8 tape drives. The HPE LTO6 tape has been extreme environmental, drop, shock, and vibration tested; and has an HPE guaranteed archival life of 30 years. The HPE LTO6 tape usage is defined as 1,000,000 passes or 260 full tape backups. For the option of LTO barcode labels attached to your tapes please see Application of Tape Barcode Labels for details. All the drives that use HP LTO 6 C7976A tapes are recommended to use the HP LTO Universal Cleaning Cartridge C7978A to maintain the drive in top condition. The HP LTO6A Data Cartridges C7976A have 2176 tracks, a tape length of 846 meters and a recording density of 384.6 kbits/inch. The tape has a lifetime durability of 1,000,000 passes or 260 full tape backups. A pass is each time the tape changes direction so a backup could have over 1,000 passes depending on the data written. The HPE LTO-6 Ultrium RW MP Data Cartridge C7976A is made using Metal Particle (MP) which is the magnetic material used on the recording surface. This was the standard for all LTO tapes until now. The alternative to MP is HP LTO-6 C7976B tapes are Barium Ferrite (BaFe) and this magnetic material will be used going forward to LTO7 due to its potential for increased capacity and reliability.
Operational Requirements for HPE LTO-6 Ultrium tapes
(media should not be used outside these parameters)
- Operational Temperature: 10-45 degrees centigrade Tape media must be acclimatised in the operational environment for at least 24 hours before it is loaded and used. Failure to do so will damage your tapes causing less reliability, less data integrity and therefore less tape usable life.
- Storage Temperature: 16-32 degrees centigrade
- Archival Temperature: 5-23 degrees centigrade
- Wet Bulb Temperature: not to exceed 26 degrees centigrade
- Operating Humidity: 10-80%
- Archival Humidity: 20-60%
