HPE LTO-8 tape. Same footprint, giant leap for archive technology.
New HPE LTO-8 is a giant leap for reducing the cost and complexity of retaining your archive data. Now you can store and encrypt up to 30 TB per HPE LTO-8 cartridge, scaling to 1.6 EB as your content grows, using 50% fewer tapes than with LTO-7. And with new HPE LTO-8 Type M format, you can reduce tape media costs by 36% over a five year period compared to LTO-6.
What hasn’t changed is the HPE brand specification for LTO data cartridges, the gold standard for media reliability. In the last 18 months, HPE has written 40 Million GB in testing to ensure you never have to take a giant leap of faith with your restore.
