HP LTO-7 Backup Tape (WORM write once read many) C7977W

In stock


The HP LTO-7 Backup Tape with the product code C7977W is a high-quality storage medium designed for data backup and archiving. It belongs to the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology, specifically the seventh generation (LTO-7).

One notable feature of the C7977W tape is its WORM (Write Once Read Many) capability. WORM technology ensures that once data is written to the tape, it cannot be overwritten or modified. This makes it ideal for storing sensitive or critical data that requires long-term preservation and protection from tampering or alteration.

The tape offers a native storage capacity of 6 terabytes (TB) and a compressed capacity of up to 15 TB with a 2.5:1 compression ratio. This generous storage capacity allows for efficient backup and archiving of large amounts of data, ensuring ample space for data retention and long-term storage needs.

The HP LTO-7 Backup Tape is designed to deliver fast and reliable data transfer rates. It supports native data transfer rates of up to 300 megabytes per second (MB/s) and can achieve speeds of up to 750 MB/s with compression. This high transfer rate ensures quick backup and restore operations, minimizing downtime and optimizing data management workflows.

The tape cartridge is built with durability in mind, featuring a robust construction that protects the physical integrity of the tape and the data stored on it. It is designed to withstand various environmental factors and handling demands, ensuring reliable performance and long-term data preservation.

The HP LTO-7 Backup Tape with WORM (C7977W) incorporates advanced error correction techniques to maintain data integrity during read and write operations. This helps minimize the risk of data loss or corruption, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the stored information.

It's important to note that the C7977W tape is compatible with LTO-7 tape drives and can also be read by LTO-8 tape drives for backward compatibility. However, it is not compatible with earlier-generation drives such as LTO-6, LTO-5, or LTO-4.

In summary, the HP LTO-7 Backup Tape with WORM (C7977W) offers high-capacity, fast, and secure data storage for backup and archiving purposes. With its WORM capability, substantial storage capacity, fast data transfer rates, durability, and compatibility with LTO-7 and LTO-8 drives, this tape cartridge is well-suited for organizations seeking efficient and reliable long-term data storage and protection.
