StorageTek SDLT 320 Tape Drive – 320GB, 32MB/s

The StorageTek SLDT 320 is well suited for storing, archiving and backing up large volumes of data in midrange UNIX and Windows NT environments.. The StorageTek SDLT 320 stores up to 300 gigabytes native data on a single cartridge. The use of StorageTek SDLT tape drives for backup and restore increases performance over previous-generation tape drives, shortening backup and recovery times. SDLT tape drives can be used in combination with other drives to match specific backup and restore performance and capacity needs.

The StorageTek SLDT 320 Tape Drive is an integral part of disaster recovery processes that remotely vault data in tape form for recovery in case of disaster. Tapes can be physically transported to a remote site, created electronically with SDLT tape drives in a library at the remote location, or created simultaneously at both local and remote locations. SDLT tape drives are a practical choice for archiving growing volumes of business data. The higher capacity and transfer rates of SDLT tape drives shorten recall times and support aggressive archival growth rates over previous-generation tape drives. The WORM capability of the SDLT 320 tape drive can help you address the need to comply with government regulations and internal data retention policies that may require you to store information for years.
