Are your data storage requirements outstripping your backup, disaster recovery and archive requirements? Proven by the largest data users in the world, the HPE T950 tape libraries deliver simplified management and scalability to create the ultimate solution for data preservation.

The HPE T950 Tape Library provides powerful library management, superior and proactive data integrity administration, and the best total cost of ownership of any tape solution.The HPE T950 tape library combines field-proven reliability with storage innovation and gives you access to a full suite of enterprise capabilities.

Once data expands beyond the limits of the initial configuration, you simply add up to, 120 drives, and 10,020 LTO slots (7,614 enterprise slots) in a total of eight frames to keep pace with growing data demands.

With a versatile BlueScale® software interface built-in, you have intelligent command, control and data integrity functionality at the touch of a screen. The HPE T950, with its compact footprint, is installed in some of the world’s most prestigious organizations to meet their backup, archive and deep storage requirements.

Key features and benefits

High performance

• HPE T950 tape libraries are built with the highest performance achievable in automated tape technology. From robotics, to drives, to software, to media, all performance innovations are included in these libraries.

• The transporter has been designed with two primary goals in mind: performance and reliability. Performance is accomplished by reduced cycle or tape mount time and reliability is achieved by increased mean time between failures.

• The HPE T950 provides superior flexibility by supporting either LTO-6 and LTO-7 or TS11x0 tape technology, freeing organizations from vendor lock-in.

High capacity

• When data center real-estate counts, HPE T950 offers you unsurpassed storage density and the smallest footprint through a unique and highly efficient library design, providing more storage capacity in less floor space.

• Using innovative “shelves” instead of slots, and TeraPack® containers in place of individual cartridges; HPE T950 tape library uses 20% less floor space required versus competing offerings.

• The highly compact library design is also built to fit into a standard rack-row layout, fitting standardized data center designs that do not easily accommodate non-standard equipment. These significant space-saving benefits allow you to use floor space for operations other than storage.

• Only buy what you need today and add storage capacity as you need it. Upgrade capacity in intervals of 10 LTO or 9 Enterprise tape slots at a time. Tape consolidation is made easy through capacity performance, partitioning, and reporting, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.

Unique flexibility

• HPE T950 tape libraries, possess the ability to operate either LTO-6/LTO-7 or TS11x0 tape technologies. Paired with extensive software and hardware partners, organizations can develop customized workflows for every situation.

High reliability

• HPE T950 offers a sophisticated suite of standard features that allow you to actively check data already written to tape. Data Integrity Verification examines media health before and after data writes, when enabled. Integrated BlueScale Encryption provides automatic data protection.

• PreScan checks each imported tape and verifies that the tape can be safely written to. QuickScan scans a tape uni-directionally to provide a rapid indicator of integrity of data written. FullScan confirms that there are no media errors on the tape by reading the entire length of the tape.

• A high level of encryption security, with compression, for strong backup data privacy to secure confidential information and address compliance quickly. Supports WORM media (using LTO-7, LTO-6), providing a fail-safe method for permanently storing data records

HPE Certified TeraPack Media
