The HP Q1580SB tape drive provides high capacity and performance in the DAT portfolio for small and medium businesses requiring backward compatibility to previous DAT tape drives.
The HP Q1580SB delivers a capacity of 160 GB on a single data cartridge and a transfer rate of up to 50 GB/hr (assuming a 2:1 compression ratio). At the same time this sixth generation DAT drive provides the proven reliability and two-generation backward compatibility that users of the world's most successful tape technology have come to expect.
The DAT 160 enables a simple migration path for the installed base of over 6 million DAT users, delivering a dependable and cost-effective backup solution with a low ongoing cost of ownership.
